Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

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. Your attorney should set realistic expectations on costs, concerns about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you can expect your case to take.

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 experienced at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of experience.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

Chicago divorce attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how to file for Divorce in Chicago.

Chicago Family Law: How to File For Divorce in Chicago

Our Chicago lawyers explain how to file for divorce in Illinois. In order to file for divorce in Illinois, either spouse must have lived or resided in the state for at least 90 days.  To begin the process of divorce, the first thing you have to do file the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.  The person who files for the Petition is called the Petitioner and their spouse is called the Respondent. Once the Petition is filed, the other spouse must be notified that the Petition has been filed.  This is accomplished by serving the other party with a file-stamped copy of the petition along with a summons specifying the time and location of the first court date by sheriff or special process server.

Chicago estate planning attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains what a good estate plan should contain.

Chicago Estate Planning: Estate Planning Explained

Our Chicago lawyers give an introduction to estate planning. When most people think of an estate plan, they think: “I have kids now–I should probably have a will.”  However, the estate plan system we generally recommend focuses on an instrument called a Revocable Living Trust instead of a will. A Revocable Living Trust is preferable to a will for many reasons. First, if a will is the primary instrument of your estate plan, your estate must go through probate before your heirs have access to your estate’s assets. Probate is a legal proceeding for the purpose of ensuring that an estate’s assets are distributed correctly. It takes from six months to a year. Second, a Revocable Living Trust allows you to have greater control over how your assets are handled after your death, allowing you to ensure that your heirs are properly cared for. Third, a Revocable Living Trust can be used to minimize taxes on your estate.

Chicago Probate: The Probate Process Explained

In this article, our Chicago attorneys explain the Illinois probate process. Probate is a court case wherein the probate court oversees the administration of an estate in order to ensure proper payment to heirs and creditors.  If probate is necessary, your attorney will follow these steps to administer the estate through the probate court.  The probate process is slightly different depending on whether the decedent had a will in place at the time of death.  If there is a will in place, the estate is called a Testate Estate.  If the decedent died without a will, the estate is called an Intestate Estate.  This article will deal with probate administration of a Testate Estate
