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.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

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.

About DUI Lawyer Elgin:

Illinois DUI Charges

Driving under the influence (DUI) in Illinois is a big deal with consequences that can affect every part of your life, from your freedom to your financial well-being. Drunk driving charges can also result in the Illinois Secretary of State suspending your license. Having a good criminal and DUI defense attorney in Elgin is key to navigating the Illinois DUI laws and building a strong criminal defense. The firm also handles traffic violations related to DUI charges.

DUI Defense:

  • Reviewing breathalyzer and field sobriety test procedures for mistakes made by the police officer involved.
  • Challenging the traffic stop, arrest, DUI charge, and other traffic tickets.
  • Finding weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.
  • Negotiating plea deals or dismissals when possible.

Some DUI criminal charges are accompanied by other traffic offenses. No matter what traffic offenses and/or DUI offenses you are charged with, including aggravated DUI and felony DUI, we have legal counsel who has vast experience in handling DUI cases to get you the best possible outcome.

Benefits of a Comprehensive Law Firm 

Our team of lawyers and paralegals have extensive experience handling the nuances of your legal matter but also consider how other areas of law might affect your case. We often consider angles that aren’t obvious to an attorney with experience in only one practice area. Our expertise in criminal law and family law allows us to consider all angles that might affect a DUI case.

A Law Firm that Handles Simple and Complex Cases 

Some legal issues are quick, requiring fast efficient services. You want those knocked out fast with the most efficient cost possible. But, for more involved cases, we take the time to get it right and work hard to get the outcome you want. 

A Team That Collaborates on Your Case 

We’ve had many legal clients complain that their last firm just didn’t have the resources or understanding to manage their case. Our attorneys regularly communicate across the firm, getting input from several legal professionals without the additional cost. 

Our Skills and Services 

Our skills and experience span decades and many different practice areas. Many of our firm's attorneys are graduates of John Marshall Law School and have been practicing law for many years, providing them with the expertise to handle complex DUI cases. We truly want to provide a comprehensive legal solution for our community. When you’ve got a legal question, we want to be the first law firm you think of because you know you can trust us to have the answers or tell you the next best solution.

Open Communication 

No one wants to be sitting in the dark, unsure of what’s going on with their case. Part of our core practice model is to regularly update our clients on the status of their cases. 

Relationships Built on Trust and Communication 

Dealing with legal issues can be stressful. You don’t need added stress from an attorney who is slow to communicate and hasn’t given you a clear plan to resolve your case. Trust comes from knowing your attorney has your back and best interests in mind. 

Competitive Fees with Excellent Service 

We are not a free legal aid firm. We pride ourselves on offering top-tier service at a competitive local price. The law offices of O'Flaherty Law provide top-tier legal services at competitive prices, ensuring clients receive the best possible representation. Legal solutions cost money but putting them off only leads to more headaches and financial problems.
