Central Illinois Estate Planning And Agriculture Lawyer

Crafting Solutions To Your Unique Problems

Every farm is run differently and faces its own problems and challenges. Because of this, I work directly with you to find the solution that will work best for you. My goal is always to provide you with exceptional representation and service. I believe in relationships established on mutual respect, honesty and trust. I will give 100 percent effort to make your goals a reality.

My name is Barry Hines, and I have served farmers and their families here in Illinois for the last 40 years. I have watched the many changes that have occurred during that time. These happened both in the law and in the way farms operate. These changes have necessarily set new precedent for the laws governing the way farms are handled in leasing and real estate. I know the issues you face as you seek to build your business and pass it on to your heirs. I will work with you to solve them.

Sangamon County Lawyer Assisting With The Buying And Selling Of Farms

I focus on two main areas of law that encompass the issues that farm families come up against as they grow their businesses:

  • Agricultural law: Many farmers come up against real estate and business law issues such as oil leases in farming, cash farm leases, buying and selling farms, farm partition rights, farm auctions, creating or enforcing easements and much more. I can help you find the solution to meet your goals.
  • Estate planning: It is important that you protect your investment so your family can take over from you easily, and your hard work can benefit them when you are gone. At your death, I can assist your family with Independent Administration of your estate.  Through the use of wills, trusts and other estate planning methods, I will work within estate tax laws to ensure that your family gets as much of your wealth as possible when you die.
