Last year my Aunt died without a will. Since I was the eldest nephew, it was agreed I would administer her estate. Having lived outside the Chicago area for over 30 years, I no longer had any local legal contacts. I found Tom Jefson via a simple Google search of “estate attorneys” and it was one of the luckiest searches I’ve ever done. Since I was leaving town the next day, Tom agreed to meet with me before I left. During our meeting I was impressed with his articulate style and patience
