Our Mission

I began practicing Elder Law over 25 years ago, and in that time, my team and I have had the chance to help people in all walks of life. Our focus has been on creating solutions, planning for the future, and helping our clients weather the storm of a crisis with their financial well-being  intact.

Because we have been involved in the drafting of legislation and administrative rules relating to Medicaid for long-term care in the state of Illinois, we have a thorough understanding of the current state of affairs and a keen eye for where the future may take us.

What’s more, we have developed certain care and support system relationshipsto help you and your family deal with the actual care needed by you or a loved one,  as well as the emotional and physical aspects of growing older, in addition to the devastating cost of care issues. Through our Alzheimer’s newsletters and estate planning blogs, we can be there to answer the questions you might not even have known to ask.

As a partner at Di Monte Lizak, LLC, attorney Anthony B. Ferraro focuses on the following areas of life and death planning:

  • Senior” Estate Planning:  specialized wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, special powers of
