Every state has laws that govern estate planning and probate procedures. Additionally, many states levy taxes on estate conveyances, meaning you may have to pay taxes on the real estate and personal property you inherit. For almost three decades, Konrad Malik has professionally handled the legalities surrounding those complicated issues for his clientele.
Today, Mr. Malik concentrates his legal practice around estate law as it relates to an individual’s real property, including living wills, trusts, probate, gift tax laws and other areas regarding the management of another person’s property.
Day-to-day, Mr. Malik personally handles most of the drafting and litigation of the law firm's pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
Together with his wife of 34 years, Mr. Malik has raised four children. The youngest is due to begin college next fall in California, while two others work for the federal government and the other is a teacher in Chicago. He enjoys spending time with them and traveling when he has time.
As with his family, he likes to treat clients with respect and honesty, giving the best representation per each case, going over each thoroughly before signing agreements.
“Preparation is really the key. Planning ahead and having a counselor prepared to do the parsing of those assets -- as dictated by the departed -- can sometimes mean the difference between a family like yours maintaining the bonds you fostered or losing them through conflict about how those assets, wealth or properties should be distributed or managed. A third party handling those issues allows everyone to grieve properly in those scenarios of estate law.” -- Konrad Malik
