Tim Leighton counsels clients in Central Illinois and metropolitan Washington, DC on trusts, wills, probate, business, charitable and tax matters.


The use of wills, trusts, and powers of attorney to accumulate, preserve, and distribute your assets is known as "estate planning". Attorney Tim Leighton helps Clients secure peace of mind by creating a plan to achieve personal goals. Those goals include preserving wealth, reducing taxes, protecting assets from creditors, enhancing privacy and saving time and money. We can help you and your family prepare trusts, wills, and powers of attorney for medical and property needs. Parents with minor children may be eligible for our New Parent Legal Plan.

Tim counsels on estate planning options for your specific situation. While many people know the purpose of having a will and power of attorney, some people may not be familiar with trusts and how they work. A trust can privately provide for your loved ones after your death while avoiding probate. There are also benefits during your lifetime for certain types of trusts.

Leighton Legal Group will work with you to help define your wishes and develop your estate plan. Call or email us today to set up a consultation to start preparing for your future and the future of your loved ones.
