Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

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.

Illinois Adult Guardianship

In this article, our Illinois guardianship lawyers explain adult guardianships in Illinois.

One way to care your loved ones who have become mentally incompetent and ensure that their personal and financial needs are met is to become their legal guardian.  In Illinois, to be named a guardian for your loved one a guardianship proceeding must be filed with the appropriate court.  Guardianship may be granted by the court if your loved one is unable to communicate responsible decisions regarding personal or financial matters 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 filing for guardianship is to have them execute Healthcare and Financial Powers of Attorney, which can give powers that would be granted by the court in a guardianship proceeding, without the need for a court order.

Illinois Guardianship of the Person Explained

In this article, our Illinois guardianship attorneys explain guardianship of the person.  

[At the conclusion of an Illinois guardianship case, the court may name a guardian of the estate to manage the disabled adult financial affairs and a guardian of the person to manage personal and healthcare decisions.  We explain the “substituted judgment rule,” the standard that guardians of the person are required to use when making decisions for the disabled adult.  We also discuss the extent of the guardian’s power to make medical decisions on behalf of the disabled adult, whether the guardian has the power to decide where the disabled adult will live, and whether guardians can admit the disabled adult into mental health facilities.
