- The O'Flaherty Law Team
Before I founded O’Flaherty Law in 2011, I had previously worked for five years at a small general practice firm, where I learned to practice nearly every area of law. When I started my own practice, I based the practice on principles I had learned from my parents, who had owned and operated a very successful dental practice in Downers Grove for 30 years. For as long as I could remember, my parents’ practice had the same team. My parents also had loyal patients who would stay with them even after moving hours away from their practice.
There were several lessons about being in a service business that I learned from growing up watching my parents’ dental practice:
(1) Treat your staff well, and they will treat your clients well—this is essential to creating an organization that provides amazing service consistently on every level;
(2) Make sure that every client understands that they are important to you on a personal level—every client walks away happy . . . no exceptions; and
(3) You can never rest on your laurels—don’t ever settle for anything less than being the absolute best at what you do and providing the highest quality of work to your clients.
I started the firm out of my house with these principles firmly in mind, determined to be the legacy of my parents’ life’s work. Within two months I had enough referrals from happy clients that I found the need to bring in additional attorneys who shared my values to help me serve my clients.
We built out the entire upper floor of my house into office space. At one point we had 4 attorneys and 3 support staff coming to my house to work every day. The dream of the home-based law firm came to an end in early 2012 when my wife and I found out we were expecting my first child, Paige--we knew that our little law firm was going to be evicted from my house.
In June, 2012 we moved to the corner of Main Street and the train tracks in downtown Downers Grove. For someone who had grown up in town, this was a dream come true. Now, four years after embarking on this journey, we have a strong team of attorneys and support staff practicing nearly every area of law. Thanks to referrals from our clients, we are now planning on opening offices in Lake Forest and Lemont, in addition to our office in downtown Downers. I am excited to be helping more people every year, and to continue to spread the values that I learned from my parents’ dental practice: “treat your employees and clients well, be good at what you do, and you will be happy in your work.”

Why O'Flaherty Law?
We Are Affordable! When we started our firm in the midst of the recession, we learned to survive in a lean environment and pass the savings on to our clients. As the economy has improved, we have not changed our philosophy. We are hungry to grow our client base, and so we have intentionally set our rates below what the market will bear. Our mission is to make each client walk away feeling that they got more value than they paid for. This is easier to do when we make our prices affordable.
We Are Client-Focused! The secret to our success as a firm is incredibly simple: we build a personal relationship with each of our clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve. We pride ourselves on our open lines of communication, frequent check-ins with our clients, and our accessibility. We are here to help you in any way we can, often leveraging our network of resources to assist you with non-legal issues that you may be having. We are your one-stop problem-solver and trusted adviser. All attorneys say that they provide excellent client service, but, unlike other attorneys, we practice what we preach. We make sure every client walks away happy . . . period.
We Are Comprehensive! Wouldn't it be nice to work with the same trusted adviser for all of your legal solutions? At O'Flaherty Law, our team approach provides you with experts in nearly every area of law. Regardless of your legal needs, you will get the same trusted quality of service and continuity of care. We are not a sole practitioner that is spread too thin and expert at nothing. We are also not a large conglomerate firm that only massive corporations can afford. We are uniquely set up to provide you with expert comprehensive service from a team of attorneys at affordable prices.
We Are Great at What We Do! Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us. Each of our attorneys is a true expert in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence. We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident. Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.
