About Us

Amina A. Saeed is an Illinois attorney, helping families and businesses plan for life’s unexpected circumstances, protect and provide for their loved ones, and develop a lasting legacy. 

Amina’s interest in estate and business planning developed out of her work experiences as an attorney and as director of a nonprofit institution. 

After graduation from law school, Amina advocated on behalf of abused and neglected children.  In her six years as a child abuse attorney, Amina witnessed not only the devastating impact of abuse on children, but also the trauma they suffer upon being moved to foster care and group home settings. 

The September 11 tragedy affected every American in some way.  For Amina, it ultimately led to her work as director of a community-based nonprofit institution.  There, she worked on government, media and interfaith relations on behalf of communities impacted by the September 11 tragedy.  Amina also wrote grant proposals and worked on nonprofit fundraising initiatives.  Through this process, she learned how valuable charitable estate planning really is for the nonprofit community and the donors who establish a regular schedule for their donations.

While taking some time off to spend with her young children, Amina gave thought to her memorable experiences as an attorney and nonprofit director.  She realized through this process that she had found her new niche: estate and business planning to protect our young children and provide for nonprofit institutions.  

She obtained her law degree from Valparaiso University, where she received a Dean’s Merit Scholarship and served the indigent communities of Gary, Indiana, through her work with the law school’s legal clinic.  Her undergraduate degree was in Political Science and History, with a minor in Theology, from Loyola University Chicago.  She also holds an LL.M. degree in Information Technology and Privacy Law, with highest honors, from John Marshall Law School. 

Amina is a member of Wealth Counsel, a nationwide collaboration of trusts and estates attorneys and other legal, tax and business professionals.  Her continuing education and involvement with estate planning attorneys across the United States allows her to employ sophisticated planning techniques for her clients. 

Amina is also a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, where she has been appointed by the president to the Committee on Women and Minority Participation in the Law, the American Bar Association and the Kane County Bar Association.  In addition, she was recently elected as president of the Muslim Bar Association of Illinois.

Amina is a fellow of the prestigious Leadership Greater Chicago, a group that strives to create lifelong partnerships and develops community awareness among leaders in the Chicago metropolitan area.  The distinguished list of fellows include: First Lady Michelle Obama, White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and Arne Duncan, U. S. Secretary of Education.

Amina lives in the western suburbs, where her husband has established his dental practice.  They have three energetic and curious young children, aged eight, four and two.

As the principal and founder of her law practice, Amina takes pride in providing the highest standard of care and client services.
