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.

Trust litigation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains "what is a trust?" in this Learn About Law episode.

What is a Trust?

In this video, our Champaign trust litigation attorneys describe that a trust is both a document and a legal entity that can own property separate from its creator.  A trust is created by an individual or entity known as a “grantor” or “settlor". Once the trust is drafted and executed by the grantor, the grantor or third parties can transfer ownership of property to the trust.  The trust is therefore a separate legal entity from the grantor that can own property, much like a corporation.  


Family law attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains collaborative divorce and cooperative divorce as alternative dispute resolution techniques in marital dissolution cases, and compares the pros and cons of each.

Cooperative Divorce Explained

In this video, our collaborative and cooperative divorce Champaign attorneys explain the alternative dispute resolutions in marital dissolution cases. A cooperative divorce is like a collaborative divorce in that the parties agree to negotiate out of court and in good faith.  The open exchange of information is necessary because in a collaborative divorce, attorneys usually don't conduct depositions or written discovery.The difference between a Cooperative Divorce and Collaborative Law Divorce is that attorneys don't have to remove themselves should litigation become necessary.  If negotiations fail, the parties can transition into court proceedings smoothly and cost-effectively


Champaign child support attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the new changes to Illinois Child Support Laws.

New Illinois Laws Impact Child Support Obligations

Our Champaign child support attorneys explain the differences in how child support is determined in 2020. Once an appropriate amount for child support is set by the court, each parent’s portion of the obligation must be designated. Typically, this is determined by the parents’ relative incomes. The larger the difference in income between the obligor and oblige, the more the obligor is likely to pay in child support. The change from a fixed-rate model to an income shares model affects each case differently. Spouses with similar incomes will likely receive less in child support under the new law.​
