Ritchie Law Office, Ltd. is Serving Estate Planning Clients Within a 2-Hour Radius

Your Referrals are making the Ritchie Law Office, Ltd. known across the state for Estate Planning.

The Ritchie Law Office, Ltd. (“RLO”) is a law firm located in Bloomington, Illinois that has done Estate Planning for over 400 households over the last five years.


Word is spreading about RLO as our clients refer us to their family and friends. In fact, eighty-five percent of our new clients come to us as referrals from existing clients and other professionals in our community (financial advisors, bank officers, CPAs, etc.)

Because of these referrals, the geographic area that we serve has grown. See the Illinois Map above for the geographic reach of RLO Estate Planning clients.

The stars on the map represent where RLO Estate Planning Clients live. While we continue to serve McLean County and surrounding counties, you can see that we have Estate Planning clients from all over Central and Northern Illinois.

Just last month, we had two new Estate Planning clients that live over two hours away from our office! You can see from the map that we have multiple clients from the Chicagoland area as well. These clients were the result of family, friends and professionals referring the Ritchie Law Office, Ltd. to them for their Estate Planning needs.



Why is word spreading about RLO Estate Plans? Two Reasons:

REASON #1: The Ritchie Law Office, Ltd. is a “Client-First” Estate Planning Law Firm

We are always refining and improving the RLO Client-First Estate Planning Process to provide our clients with a great Estate Planning experience that ultimately leads to a Proper Estate Plan.

How do we define a Proper Estate Plan?

A Proper Estate Plan will:

  • Properly Reflect Your Wishes

  • Avoid Probate

  • Avoid Estate Taxes

  • Protect You, Your Family and Your Assets

  • Be Prepared and Signed in a Timely Fashion

  • Be Presented in a Way the Client Understands

  • Be Maintained Over the Years so the Estate Plan Doesn’t Become Outdated

REASON #2: We Only Do Estate Planning

(with real estate and business transactions as necessary for our Estate Planning clients).

We are not a general practice law firm that does estate planning on the side – WE ARE AN ESTATE PLANNING LAW FIRM.

As mentioned above, we have done Estate Planning for over 400 households in the last five years. (This translates to over 700 individuals signing estate plans with the Ritchie Law Office, Ltd.) We've had a lot of practice perfecting the RLO Client-First Estate Planning Process!

We have counseled, represented and assisted numerous farm families; business owners; couples approaching retirement; parents with young children; parents of college-age children; individuals and couples with no children; and philanthropic clients with their Estate Plans.


Our Mission

To provide PROPER Estate Planning to families, farmland owners and business owners so that our clients can achieve success, peace and a lasting legacy.

Every client is unique when it comes to designing and creating an estate plan. No matter who they are, our clients always receive a Proper Estate Plan as we draw upon the experience and wisdom of our past 400+ Estate Planning clients at every new client meeting.



Thank you to all of our clients and referral partners that have referred RLO to their family and friends! RLO simply could not have the success we have had – especially through the pandemic – without your referrals.

Even though some people prefer to drive two hours to personally meet with RLO to design and create their Estate Plan, with Zoom and other remote meeting technology, anyone that lives in Illinois can start the RLO Client-First Estate Planning Process from the comfort of their own home.

We take our Mission Statement very seriously as we continually improve our Client-First Estate Planning Process and create Proper Estate Plans for our clients.
