Heather McPherson of McPherson Law Offices in Freeport, Illinois will be speaking on Best Practices in Probate Law on October 2, 2015 in Rockford, Illinois as part of a continuing legal education program for Illinois attorneys sponsored by the Illinois State Bar Association. Heather is a frequent speaker throughout the State of Illinois before professional and lay groups on estate and trust related topics. Her practice is concentrated in estate planning, probate, estate and trust administration, estate and trust litigation, guardianships, elder law and nursing home planning, and agricultural real estate. She is licensed in Illinois as well as Wisconsin.
Heather, past chairperson of the Elder Law Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association, and presently a member of the Trusts and Estates Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association will be speaking in Chicago at a seminar for members of the Illinois State Bar Association. Her topic will be “To Open an Estate or Not to Open an Estate – That Is the Question,” and it will be directed to attorneys with limited experience in the estate area. As Heather tells her clients, attorneys must stay current as to recent developments in the estate area so that they can advise their clients as to how any changes many affect their estate plans. Of course, all of us should review our estate planning documents every few years so that they can be adjusted to reflect changes in our personal lives or those of our family members.

Heather is past chairperson of the Elder Law Section Council of the Illinois State Bar Association, and this year is one of the Editors of the Elder Law Newsletter.
