Nancy Spain practices in the area of general and probate related law. Prior to moving to Chicago in 1981, Ms. Spain was engaged in private law practice in Cleveland, Ohio. Since relocating here, Ms. Spain worked in the trust department of what was then Lake Shore Bank before practicing with the firm. She is a graduate of Connecticut College and of Case Western Reserve University's College of Law and has completed several courses in estate planning in the LL.M. program at John Marshall Law School.

An active volunteer in her community, Ms. Spain served for many years as a member of the Junior League of Chicago and Glenkirk Association, advisor to various Family Service agencies in Lake County, and, most currently, as a board member of the Illinois Branch of the International Dyslexia Society (ORTON). She has been actively involved in drafting legislation and working with state and local bar committees and state legislators to effect the passage of legislation involving probate and guardianship issues. In addition to speaking on guardianship and trust matters before state and local bar and bankers associations, Ms. Spain counsels Chicago area corporate entities regarding their duties as legal guardian of a disabled person or as Trustee of Special Needs Trusts.

   I understand that by contacting a lawyer or a law firm through the Academy of Special Needs Planners, I will not create an attorney-client relationship and the message will not necessarily be treated as privileged or confidential. I also understand that if I contact a non-attorney member of the Academy, whether a financial planner, trustee or other non-attorney, that such contact does not by itself mean that the professional has been retained and that communications with the member may not be treated as privileged or confidential.
