Daniel P. Felix advises & counsels families and their trustees about trust administration — and in the right situation, Dan serves as trustee.

Dan is a licensed Illinois attorney using his legal and other essential skills to help families navigate the rough waters of disability and death. In this unique expertise, Dan works closely with each family’s estate & financial planners as well as their other advisors.

Insured and, on a project basis, bonded, Dan has two employees and a roster of sub-contractors he uses as needed to provide professional continuity as well as efficient support. While serving as fiduciary, Dan recommends the use of a trust protector to provide institutional continuity in the event of his own inability to further serve.

Dan typically works on hourly or flat fees. He does not accept or offer referral fees, commissions or any other compensation. As an independent trustee, Dan wrote and believes in the Bill of Trust Beneficiary Rights.
