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.

Triumph Through Strategy: The Story of a Small Business Victory

Let's delve into the story of a local Elgin bakery, "Sweet Success," embroiled in a dispute with a supplier over a significant breach of contract. The bakery's owner, Sophia, faced not only potential financial losses but also the risk of damaging her hard-earned reputation. In search of a resolution, she enlisted our civil litigation services.

Our Strategy Unfolded in Several Key Steps:

  • Comprehensive Case Review: We meticulously evaluated all contract documents and communications between Sophia and the supplier.
  • Strategic Negotiation: Before heading to court, we engaged in negotiations with the supplier, aiming for a settlement that would favor "Sweet Success."
