Jacquelyn M Bruno
Attorney at Law
With years of experience in the fields of Estate Planning, Guardianship, and Probate Administration, I thoroughly enjoy these interconnected areas of law. It gives me the opportunity to connect with clients on a personal level, learn their ambitions, protect their families, and help them when life seems to be in chaos. My unified understanding of the entire process helps me serve my clients better.
My goal is to make Estate Planning accessible to all. I work with my client's busy schedules and provide fair, competitive fees. I am dedicated to helping my clients plan for the future, protect their hard earned money, and provide for their loved ones. Making decisions about who will care for you, your children, and your property if you are no longer around or unable to care for them yourself is a daunting task. My mission is to ease this burden on you and streamline the process as much as possible. You need to get back to your family and everyday life.
Estate Planning, Guardianship, and Probate are inherently personal matters. As such, it is important to me that my relationship with my clients is more than just a few emails. Developing long lasting relationships helps me and my clients stay on top of their needs over time. These connections facilitate comfortable conversations when talking about changes in their family structures, assets, future wishes, and the law. Ultimately, I strive to be a trusted resource for years to come.
I am a Chicago native and a graduate of the John Marshall Law School. As a licensed attorney in the State of Illinois, my practice generally represents clients in the Chicago area, including Cook and the collar counties. In the Probate Court, I have served as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem (GAL). Additionally, I provide pro-bono legal service to help with guardianship cases for Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, an organization that provides free legal services for low-income Chicagoans. I am a member of the Illinois State Bar Association and the Chicago Bar Association.
