Leonard F Berg
Sole Practitioner since 1984
I am an elderly law attorney who helps people that are older, who are planning for their older years and their family members; I also help people with disabilities. This involves identifying what is important to you, and then preparing a plan, documents and help with transfers to accomplish your goals.
I have served the greater Wood River/East Alton/Bethalto area since 1984, handling Elder Law, Estate Planning & Probate, Government Agencies & Programs, Guardianships, Medicaid Applications, Nursing Home, Planning for Disabled Persons, Real Estate.
I represent clients in every level of the Illinois State court system. The cornerstone of my success is the quality relationship that I maintain with my clients. My clients are treated with integrity and respect for their needs, goals, and objectives. I focus on intelligent legal representation and pledge to listen to and communicate with clients. I take the time to get to know my clients and understand their particular situation. Only after careful consultation and one-on-one counseling, am I able to provide the best advice and representation to my clients.
I am dedicated to providing high quality legal services to all of my clients in a professional and friendly atmosphere.
