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.

Motions To Dismiss In DuPage County Civil Litigation

Our DuPage civil litigation lawyers further explain Motions to Dismiss in the following companion article.

Litigation cases begin with the filing of Complaints. A
Complaint specifies a cause of action and the civil law that has been
violated. It also outlines the damages that the Plaintiff is entitled
to. 

The defendant then has two choices once the Complaint has been served:

  1. They can admit or
    deny the allegation listed in the Complaint and raise defenses by filing an
    Answer to the Complaint; or
  2. File a Motion to
    Dismiss. This states that the Complaint is defective, has no merit
    or there is another affirmative matter that requires the case to be
    dismissed.

In this video, DuPage County litigation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses the written discovery phase of civil litigation.

The Written Discovery Phase of Litigation Explained

In this article, our DuPage County civil litigation
attorneys discuss the steps to obtaining written discovery.  

Written discovery consists of four primary types of documents: 

  1. Written
    interrogatories; 
  2. Requests
    for production of documents; 
  3. Requests
    for admission of facts; and 
  4. Third party
    subpoenas

Typically, each side will initially object to portions of the discover requests, particularly when:

  • the discovery request seeks information that is not relevant to the case;
  • the discovery request is overly broad (i.e., not narrowly tailored to discovering only relevant information);
  • the discovery request is unduly burdensome (i.e., the burden of gathering the information sufficiently outweighs the relevance of the information); or
  • the requested information is subject to attorney/client or some other privilege.

In this legal education video, DuPage County litigation lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains motions for summary judgment in civil litigation.

DuPage County Motions For Summary Judgment Explained

For this supplemental article, our DuPage County civil defense
attorneys discuss motions for summary judgment in detail.  

These motions request that a court rule on some or all of
the issues in your case without having a trial.  Theses are typically
granted if there is no genuine issue of material fact and judgment is
appropriate as a matter of law.  We also explain the process for deciding
motions for summary judgment, including briefing by both sides and oral
arguments during the court hearing.

What are Local Rules in Indiana?

Local court rules, or “local rules,” are rules that most states allow each local authority within the state to establish for their particular geographic area (e.g. Alaska is divided into boroughs, Louisiana is divided into parishes, but most states are divided into smaller geographical units referred to as counties).

Is It Legal to Require the COVID-19 Vaccine at Work and in School?

The last year and a half has been incredibly challenging for everyone with the advent of the COVID-19-19 virus. Everyday there is new information and rigorous debate regarding the COVID-19-19 virus and how it should be handled. With the constantly shifting landscape of information, misinformation and personal, scientific, religious and political opinions, it can feel like we are taking one step forward and two steps back as we all try to stay healthy, safe and happy.
