By Rick Law, Senior Partner at Law ElderLaw

In the five years that I have been privileged to work with Attorney Zach Hesselbaum, I’ve seen that everybody loves him:  clients, referral sources, colleagues and teammates.

We are excited and proud to announce that Zach has earned an advanced degree as a Masters of Law in Taxation from DePaul University College of Law.

Attorney Hesselbaum began his career with Law ElderLaw as a law clerk.  We got to know Zach because we had done a Special Needs Estate Plan for one of his relatives, and they chose Zach to be a member of the Advisory Committee on behalf of his relative with a disability.  Zach was a sophomore law student at Valparaiso College of Law at that time, and he came into our office to learn more about Special Needs Trust Planning.  We asked him to clerk for us, and he officially joined our legal team five years ago.

Zach has distinguished himself in the areas of Elder Law, Customized Estate Plans, and Asset Protection.  He is nationally known for his extensive knowledge in the area of Veteran Benefits for wartime veterans in need of long term care assistance.  Zach currently serves as Chair of the DuPage County Bar Association Elder Law Committee.

On the personal side, Zach is the ultimate sports enthusiast and is a big fan of the Chicago White Sox and the Dallas Cowboys.  The MOST important priority in his life is his family.  Zach’s wife works as a school Social Worker, and they just welcome their first child, a baby boy, in October.

Congratulations Zach!
