Estate Planning And Real Estate Attorneys in Arlington Heights

Litigation and legal agreements between employers and employees are not only complex and time consuming, but often occur in a context of misunderstanding and power differentials. At Newland & Newland, LLP we have a long history of representing both employers and employees. We understand both sides of the conflict and have settled a wide variety of business law issues, including issues regarding non-compete agreements, severance packages, and independent contractor agreements. 

The Injured Workers Benefit Fund

When the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission collects penalties and fines from uninsured employers, the money goes into a fund that pays compensation benefits to injured employees when employers fail to pay benefits through insurance. In addition to resolving and settling employer-employee disputes, our firm represents employers that have failed to obtain workers’ compensation insurance, and litigates on behalf of workers who are employed by a company that has notobtained the proper insurance, as required by Illinois law.

Illinois Real Estate Law

For many of us, buying, selling, or renting a home can be the most important financial transaction of our lives. There are a great deal of potential problems that can arise during these processes, and our firm works with clients on a range of issues to ensure that the management of property – whether securing closings, renting real estate, modifying leases, or any other real estate law need – goes as smoothly as possible. Newland & Newland, LLP works with real estate throughout Northern Illinois and the Chicagoland area.

Estate Planning in Arlington Heights

The idea of estate planning may be off-putting at first, as many people believe that this is something only those that are wealthy or near-death need to consider. But, do not let the terminology stop you. Estate planning is merely deciding what to do with your property after you are gone. With a few simple legal actions, you can ensure that your property goes to the people you want it to and your wishes are followed after you pass. Our firm will help you establish your power of attorney as well as create any wills or trusts you may need. Without an estate plan, your family and friends may have to go through, and pay for, months of court and administrative proceedings in order to obtain property that may have sentimental or monetary value to them. Our firm is here to help you organize your estate so your family will not have to.
