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.

Great at What We Do

Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is truly experienced in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

Our Davenport Civil Litigation Attorneys provide excellent service in the following areas of law:

Our attorneys work as a team to provide comprehensive has experience in:
  • We Are Cost-Conscious And Cost-Effective!  We treat the client's money as if it were our own.  We do not surprise our clients with unexpected bills.  Instead, before accruing any fees we allow you to make an educated decision with respect to the costs of each step in the dispute resolution & litigation process.  We work aggressively but efficiently to minimize the expense of each stage in the process.  
  • We Put Your Interests First!  Many litigation attorneys are content to let cases drag out and "bill the file."  We realize that you are a person, not a file, and we want you to have a lifelong relationship with our firm.  At O'Flaherty Law, our goal is not to make our firm money off of your case, but instead to have you walk away feeling like you got a good resolution at a fair price.  We are prepared to aggressively pursue or defend your case.  However, because 95% of cases settle before trial, we work with an eye toward a favorable settlement at all times.   It is in your best interest to have a speedy and favorable resolution to your case without expending significant attorneys fees, and, because we put your interests first, this is our goal.  
  • We Are Your Aggressive Advocate!  Our team of Davenport civil litigation attorneys has made a name for ourselves representing the "little guy" against powerful corporations.  We have handled class action suits in Federal Court as well as appeals and multi-state litigation.  No case is too big, and we are prepared to take on and defeat powerful adversaries.
