Your attorney should not speak in legalese.
Finding an attorney who doesn't use complex legal jargon and is a “real person” can be difficult. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and they should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.
Your attorney should be accessible.
You deserve a responsive legal team that communicates regularly and promptly returns your calls. Although legal matters can take time, you should feel confident in the progress of your case.
Your attorney should be realistic about costs and outcomes.
You want a favorable outcome as efficiently as possible. It is essential that your attorney set realistic expectations about 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.
We Are Cost-Conscious And Cost-Effective! We understand that the last thing you want to be spending your hard-earned money on is an attorney. When handling your case, we always have an eye toward the cost-benefit analysis of your options. We will set realistic expectations regarding the costs associated with your case at the outset, and will not surprise you with fees you were not expecting. We pride ourselves in achieving optimal solutions for our clients in the most affordable manner possible.
We Put Your Interests First! Our goal is not to make money for our firm off of your case, but rather to bring your case to a speedy and favorable conclusion, so that you walk away raving about the value that you received from our Champaign County litigation attorneys. 95% of cases settle before trial, so we are always working with an eye toward achieving a favorable settlement for our clients as early in the case as possible. We have found that if a case settles earlier in the process, each side spends less in attorney fees and the settlement is more beneficial to all parties involved. However, we will not hesitate to aggressively defend your rights at trial if necessary. We are the tool in your hands. Our job is to advise you and protect you, but you remain ultimately in control of all major decisions in your case.
We Are Your Aggressive Advocate! Our team of Champaign litigation attorneys has a reputation for taking on cases that other attorneys may find too difficult to handle. We have significant resources and experience that our firm can bring to bear, so that no case will be too complex or to big for us to take to trial and achieve a favorable result. We are also excellent at handling small matters that may be resolved with a demand letter in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We are your shield and your advocate, and we are here to fight for you.
