"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:
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, nearly five years after embarking on this journey, we have a strong team of attorneys and support staff practicing nearly every area of law, and an enormous network of happy clients who have spread the word about our services.
At O'Flaherty Law, our mission and standard is to exceed expectations in every aspect of our practice, by providing personalized, efficient, quality legal services.By operating according to our mission, we hope to achieve the vision of enriching and elevating the lives of our clients through excellent problem solving and exceptional service.
If we have achieved our goal of "wowing" you with our above-and-beyond service, the best compliment we can receive is the opportunity to serve your friends and family. We are your community law firm.
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.”

Finding an attorney that is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand. You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-Earth and someone that you connect with.
The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls. Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails. An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.
our attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs. Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible. It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.
Regardless of the nature your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Kevin's firm handled setting up my will and trust recently. They took something that seemed intimidating and made it easy to understand. I've also referred a couple clients to Kevin - he's trustworthy, approachable and very fairly priced.
"I've used Kevin and his firm's services since 2011. He gave undivided attention to my cases, advised me on different options and..."
"Kevin was extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable when I came to him for help. I would definitely recommend O'Flaherty Law!"
"...your articles on the changes to the child support law are very well-written and informative.”
“It’s good to open the door of creative vision to offer a service that may motivate other attorneys to do the same. Keep up the good work.”
"Great set of articles. I was divorced in 2014 with one child and would have certainly considered you had I seen these types of articles then."
