Marc L. Gugliuzza

Attorney at Law

Certified Financial Planner

"Everyone knows they need to plan their estate.  They just don't know where to go or who to trust.  I founded AvoidProbate to make estate planning easy and affordable for everyone."

Marc Gugliuzza started his career as a Certified Financial Planner (TM) advising clients on their financial futures.  It was during this time that he learned the importance of living trusts as a tool in estate planning.  Most local attorneys charged thousands of dollars for what seemed like simple documents.  As a result, Marc decided to attend law school and then passed both the Illinois and Hawaii bar exams. He founded AvoidProbate with the goal of combining his legal and financial beckgrounds into a law firm unlike any other.
