Why O'Flaherty Law for My

Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Matter?

In this video, our Chicago Civil Litigation attorney describes why O'Flaherty Law is the best choice for your civil matter.

  • We Are Affordable! We know our clients appreciate cost-efficient service. That's why our Chicago Civil Litigation Attorneys strive to always keep your budget in mind throughout your case. We sit down with our clients to outline a strategy that will match your budget. We let you know of the separate parts of your case and how much to expect. This ensures that you aren't shocked by an outrageous bill that you didn't see coming. This kind of client awareness separates us from a lot of law firms. Our ability to communicate and provide cost-effective services are what we take pride in. 
  • We Put Your Interests First!  Every new client becomes a part of the O'Flaherty family. We appreciate our long-standing relationships with our clients. Your happiness is our happiness. We want you to keep us in mind the next time a legal matter arises in your life. To do this, we make sure you leave feeling like your case didn't drag out too long. We work to quickly resolve issues at the earliest stages so you think about the value you received next time you come back to us or refer us in the future. The majority of cases are resolved before trial. If we are able to settle before your case reaches trial, this will save you time and money. However, this does not mean we sacrifice any of the tools we will use to fight for your case. If trial does become necessary, we are well prepared to put you the best position to succeed.
  • We Are Your Aggressive Advocate!  We have a history of taking on difficult cases. Our Chicago litigation attorneys have built up a strong reputation for the difficult cases we take on. Other attorneys find some of the cases we've taken on too challenging. However, we have the resources of the bigger firms but are client-focused like small firms. Whatever size your case is, we are determined to provide the best client service.

Written Discovery in Chicago Litigation Matters

A Chicago litigation matter will enter multiple steps during the entire litigation process. In most cases, the parties will settle before trial. The less time spent in the courts typically means both parties will spend less on legal fees and court costs. However, during discovery, your attorney’s job is to literally discover how strong or weak your case is, and how to proceed from there.  In order to do that, your attorney has to do a considerable amount of research.  And, we’re not talking legal research here, I mean factual research. 

‍Your attorney has to uncover as much as he or she possibly can about you, your adversary, and the situation leading to you hiring an attorney to determine what course of action is best for you.  The vast majority of civil cases settle during this discovery phase because one side or other comes across facts that tell the attorney the client would be unlikely to win at trial.  So, how does this whole process begin?

Chicago Motions to Dismiss

Chicago attorney, Kevin O'Flaherty, explains motions to dismiss in civil litigation.

Chicago Civil Litigation Attorney
Chicago Dispute Resolution Lawyer

The first step of every Chicago litigation case is filing a Complaint. This will state the cause of action and outlines the civil law that has been violated by the Defendant. It also serves the purpose of outlining the damages that the Plaintiff is entitled to. The defendant then is faced with two choices once the Complaint has been served:

  • He or she can admit or deny each allegation listed in the Complaint and raise defenses by filing an Answer to the Complaint; or
  • He or she may file a Motion to Dismiss. This motion states that the Complaint is defective, or that there is some other affirmative matter that would require the case to be dismissed. ​
