By Rick Law, Estate Planning Attorney and Senior Advocate in the Western suburbs of Chicago
During any calendar year, I and my team at Law Elder Law in Aurora, IL work with at least 500 singles and couples, ranging from healthy, vigorous, Vietnam-War-era baby boomers and younger, to the fragile remaining elders of the Depression era and World War II generation.
We’ve discovered that most people are looking for four things for their retirement years:
- Safety, because it’s too hard (if not impossible) to get back what you lost.
- A reasonable rate of return on your money. Most people do not expect to be stock market wizards. They want a safe and consistent way to be able to support their lifestyle.
- Simplicity, because nobody wants to be a fool. People want to make legal and financial decisions they can understand.
- Income for life. Nobody wants to run out of money before they die. If you are out of money, then you are out of options.
In advocating for our clients, our goal is to help you find the best place to stand in today’s economic earthquake.
My staff at Law Elder Law is comprised of talented and passionate people who work together to provide boomer retirees, maturing seniors and frail elders with legal and financial solutions.
I consider myself am a “learn-a-holic” and somewhat cynical realist. Over the years, I have read and collected 114 books (at last count) on investing, taken numerous courses and worked with more than 2,000 clients and their financial advisors. My most highly recommended books on investing are listed in the Appendix section of my book “Cruising Through Retirement”.
I have a well-earned reputation for insights into the future and wisdom based on my broad business, investment and legal experience.
With the help of Law Elder Law, your retirement is sure to be a much smoother ride!
