Highland Gifting Lawyer

In our Highland, Illinois, law practice, we help our clients with estate planning strategies such as gifting property to loved ones. Giving property as a gift can be a good way to transfer it without suffering tax consequences or the loss of valuable government benefits. Gifting also provides the added benefit of seeing people you care about use and enjoy property.

There are many gifting strategies. They can be as simple as starting a 529 college savings or transferring farm equipment. They can also be more complex, like when families own farms, farmland or complex assets, or when families want to provide for a loved one with special needs.

At the Highland, Illinois, law office of Donald R. Johannes, Attorney at Law, we handle gifting of all types. When a family member wants to transfer property, we take the time to talk with him or her about the options. We answer questions and discuss how different choices may impact things now and in the future.

While we provide the straightforward legal counsel necessary to make the right choices about gifting, those choices are always yours to make. We work hard to serve your needs — never forcing you to take a certain course of action, but supporting you with knowledgeable legal counsel.
