Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Your attorney should not speak in legalese.

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.

Your attorney should be accessible.

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.

Your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes.

Your 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 expertise to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Cost-Effective

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.

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.

Comprehensive

We are your community law firm.  Our business is built on long-term relationships with our clients.  Our clients have the luxury of building trust over time with one team of attorneys, rather than having to find a new attorney for each different type of matter that arises over the course of their lives.  No one attorney can be an expert at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of expertise.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

Aurora family law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the current state of Illinois child support laws.

Aurora Family Law: Illinois Child Support

In this article, our Aurora lawyers explain the current state of Illinois child support law.  We discuss the new "income shares" model for calculating child support obligations, how child support is treated differently in "shared parenting situations," when Illinois courts can deviate from child support guidelines, and when child support orders can be modified in Illinois.

Aurora estate planning lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains revocable living trusts as part of an estate plan.

Aurora Estate Planning: Revocable Living Trusts Explained

In this article, our Aurora attorneys explain why revocable living trusts are an important part of a good estate plan. The most common purpose of a revocable living trust is to ensure that if you own real estate or more than $100,000 in assets, a costly, stressful, and lengthy probate case will not be necessary to distribute your assets to your loved ones when you pass.  If you have a revocable living trust, your loved ones will have immediate access to your assets without a good portion of their inheritance being consumed in probate attorney fees and court costs.

Aurora probate lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains when probate is necessary in Illinois.

Aurora Probate: When is Probate Required in Illinois?

In this article, our Aurora attorneys explain when probate is required in Illinois. Probate is a court case in which the court oversees the distribution of a deceased person's ("decedent") assets to creditors and heirs. Probate is generally required in order for the estate executor or administrator to have the power to collect and distribute assets if the decedent owned real estate individually outside of a trust or had more than $100,000 in assets outside of a trust or a payable-on-death account with a living beneficiary.
