We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who 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.

We believe 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.

We believe 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, the 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 of 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 experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

Attorney Modification of Illinois Residential Real Estate Contracts

In this article, our Downers Grove residential real estate attorneys explain the process of having your real estate attorney review and negotiate a residential real estate contract.

Realtors typically have both parties sign a form contract that is intended to be modified by attorneys after it is executed. Your real estate lawyer will have 5 business days from the date that the contract is signed to approve the contract, reject the contract or negotiate modifications to the contract. Our Downers Grove residential real estate lawyers will walk you through the contract to make sure that you understand it, and advise you as to terms that you may want to consider negotiating.

Trustee Responsibilities when Selling Illinois Real Estate

Our Downers Grove real estate attorneys are here to help you understand your responsibilities as a real estate trustee and have produced the following companion article to help.

In short, a trustee is responsible for the administration of a trust and has the fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of the beneficiaries of the trust, within the parameters laid out by the trust document.  When an estate holds real estate, a trustee must decide whether to transfer the real estate to one of the beneficiaries.  This will likely result in a reduction of the share that the beneficiary is due from the remainder of the estate's assets.
