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.

Estate Planning For Minor Children

In this article, our Bolingbrook estate planning attorneys explain the importance of having an estate plan if you have minor children. We discuss some important things you can accomplish with a will or a trust, such as:

  • Naming a guardian to care for your children should you be unable to do so;
  • Ensuring that your estate avoids probate, so that your family will have immediate access to your assets when you pass and will not have to pay significant probate attorney fees; and
  • Using trusts to create a long-term plan for the distribution of your children's inheritance.

What is a Power of Attorney Form?

In this article, our Bolingbrook estate planning lawyers explain powers of attorney in estate planning. Generally, if you become mentally incompetent through old age, disease, or accident, your loved ones will have to institute a guardianship court case in order to gain the power to make financial and major life decisions on your behalf.  Guardianship cases can be stressful and costly. Fortunately, if you execute power of attorney forms before you become mentally incompetent, a guardianship case will be unnecessary. A financial power of attorney allows you to name a loved one to manage your finances if you are no longer competent to do so.  A healthcare power of attorney allows you to name a loved one to make non-financial decisions on your behalf.

Providing for the Distribution of Your Assets in An Estate Plan

In this article, our Bolingbrook estate planning attorneys explain how we can use revocable living trusts and wills to plan for distribution of our assets when we pass. We discuss what happens if you die without a will or a trust in place, and the differences between a will and a trust with respect to asset distribution. Finally we explain some situations in which planning for asset distribution is often a particular concern, including clients who are divorced with minor children, who are estranged from a family member, who are interested in charitable giving, or who do not want their assets distributed in a single lump sum to minor or young adult children.
