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.

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.

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.
