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.

How to Avoid Costly Guardianship Litigation in Illinois Using Powers of Attorney

Our DuPage County guardianship law team is here to help keep your guardianship costs low.

To be a guardian, a guardianship proceeding must be filed with the appropriate circuit court. Guardianship may be granted if your loved one is unable to communicate appropriate decisions regarding personal or financial matters. This can be due to a number of factors including: due to 

  • Mental illness
  • Age
  • Mental or physical disability; or 
  • Poor life choices such as "gambling, idleness, debauchery, or excessive use of intoxicants or drugs."  

If your loved one is still mentally competent, one alternative to guardianship proceedings is having them execute a Healthcare and Financial Powers of Attorney, which explains the wishes of your loved one without the need of a court order. ​
