Jeff Story graduated from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. After coming to Chicago, he worked in Civil Litigation for eight years. Following the deaths of his parents, he decided to open his own boutique law practice in Evanston, Illinois devoted to Elder Law and Estate Planning, including Special Needs Trusts. He is the proud and grateful father of his son, Gabriel. They live beside Lake Michigan in Evanston.
Jeff is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys; Elder Counsel, LLC; the Illinois State Bar Association’s Elder Law and Trusts and Estates Sections; and the Chicago Bar Association’s Elder Law Committee. Jeff helps elders and people living with disabilities to plan their estates in order to protect their assets and their ability to claim public benefits at a later time. He helps people file Medicaid applications and advocates for their rights under law to save assets for their future care needs and their estate. The more he practices in this area of law, the more he appreciates the fine work of our Illinois Legislature and the U.S. Congress who has afforded us excellent rights and protections under law.
When he is not practicing law, Jeff enjoys spending time with his son; cooking French and Italian cuisine; playing his guitars; writing poetry; speaking French whenever possible; bicycle camping and touring; and listening to good jazz and blues music from his personal collection and in Chicago’s wonderful venues.
