Lake County Estate Planning Lawyer

Grayslake Probate Attorney

Countless people put off planning for the future. They figure there will be time for that later; that nothing bad will happen. There is no reason to delay in protecting your loved ones and yourself. There are many reasons to act now. I am Charles E. Rapin, Attorney at Law, and I help people establish estate plans to protect their assets, protect their families, and protect themselves as they get older. Contact me today to schedule a free initial consultation.

I help people with estate planning matters including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Advance health care directives/living wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Probate
  • Guardianships
  • Services for disabled adults

These tools allow people to see that their wishes are obeyed. In addition to distributing your assets to your loved ones, it is important to have a plan in place regarding how you want to be cared for in case you become incapacitated. I can help you determine what you need and establish a plan to fit your situation.

I have been practicing law for more than 29 years. I can help you get the service you need while keeping costs low. I don't push my clients into plans that they don't need. From simple wills to complex and large estates, I work to help my clients establish a plan quickly and efficiently.


Probate can be a tedious and confusing process. I help clients through the process of validating a will and handling the estate. If you need assistance with an estate planning or probate administration matter, contact my office to schedule a free initial consultation. We accept Visa and MasterCard.
