Meet hays law firm

A trusted, Chicago-based law firm specializing in probate & trust administration, business law, elder law and guardianship, as well as, restaurant law and obtaining liquor licenses.

Illinois Probate and Trust Administration

Hays Firm LLC works closely with families to guide them through the entire probate process and the administration of a decedent’s estate or trust. The firm also provides individualized representation in connection with the management of the affairs of disabled individuals and guardianship proceedings.


The period after a loved one dies can be stressful and overwhelming. One of the experienced Chicago-based probate lawyers at Hays Firm LLC would be happy to determine whether probate is necessary to distribute the assets of your loved one.


Wills and trusts help you extend your intentions, values, and priorities to future circumstances in which you will not be able to actively participate. The goal is to produce a plan that will strengthen and preserve financial security for you and your loved ones.


The estate lawyers at Hays Firm LLC provide practical advice and consultation to executors and administrators who are working to distribute the assets of a person who is deceased.


Establishing a guardianship estate for a friend or loved one may be necessary when they can no longer handle their own personal and financial affairs. If a person has not executed any documentation appointing an agent in the event of their disability, a guardian must be appointed for the person to ensure that their health care and financial obligations are uninterrupted.

Elder Law in Chicago with Hays Firm

No one WANTS to need a lawyer, but if you do, these guys are GREAT! We had an EXCEPTIONAL experience helping our mom set up a trust & update her will! Sarah Buck was very professional, informative, thorough, answered ALL our many and varied questions, and was very prompt during every phase. When my mother unexpectedly landed in the hospital, she was very flexible in adjusting her busy schedule to meet when/where it was convenient for us. You can’t go wrong with this team!

Attorneys are a dime a dozen in Chicago and it seems like a new law firm pops up on every corner each day. It seems like every street has three to four attorneys proclaiming they’re the best attorney in town. Even though there were attorneys all over my neighborhood, I took the time to search and find the law firm that was best for me and getting my estate planning in order.

After spending a good amount of time searching, I came across the Hays Firm. From day one, I knew they were going to be a great fit for me. Estate planning isn’t something that I took lightly, since I wanted to make sure that my partner was well taken care of when I pass away. Andy, Sarah, and Jaime were tremendous with pointing me in the right direction and helping me get my entire estate plan in order. While I really wasn’t losing sleep over my estate plan, I do now have the peace of mind knowing my partner and family are taken care of in care anything should happen!

A big thanks to Hays Firm for all your help! Definitely recommend them without any hesitation!
