Attention military service members, police officers, and Assistant State's Attorney:
As a small memorial to my father, Richard W. Stake, Sr., I offer all of my estate planning services, including trusts, at half of my standard flat fee rates to service men and women (active, reserve, or veteran) and to all police officers and Assistant State's Attorneys. Spouses are included.
My father served in each of these roles during his life. He joined the Army in 1968 where he was a K-9 military police officer until he was honorably discharged in 1971. When he came home, he became a Chicago Police officer where he worked in the Fifth District on the far South Side. In 1984, he earned his law degree after attending night classes at DePaul and was sworn in as an Assistant State's Attorney. He spent most of his ASA career at the Markham Courthouse where he was responsible for putting the area's most violent criminals behind bars until he retired in 2003. Richard W. Stake, Sr. passed away on September 15, 2013 at the age of 65, after a long battle with a fatal form of dementia called Frontotemporal dementia.
