Aaron T. Troy is a Director in the Trusts and Estates Practice Area, focusing his practice primarily on advising individuals and families on estate planning objectives and asset protection strategies.

Aaron believes estate planning is far more "art" than "science," and evaluates his clients' goals from a wide range of perspectives. He annually prepares federal gift and generation-skipping transfer tax returns, as well as federal and Illinois estate tax returns. Aaron also represents executors and trustees in complex estate and trust administration matters, including estate and trust litigation.

Aaron also assists clients in applying for guardianship for minors and adults with disabilities. In DuPage County, Aaron has been court-appointed to serve as counsel for minors and adults with disabilities in guardianship cases.

Aaron is a volunteer member of the Board of Directors of Tabor Hills Health Care Facility, a senior living campus in Naperville that U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks as one of the top senior living facilities in the United States.

Aaron lives in Winfield with his wife and their young twins.
