Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Your attorney should not speak in legalese.

Finding an attorney who doesn't use complex legal jargon and is a “real person” can be difficult. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and they should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.

Your attorney should be accessible.

You deserve a responsive legal team that communicates regularly and promptly returns your calls.  Although legal matters can take time, you should feel confident in the progress of your case.

Your attorney should be realistic about costs and outcomes.

You want a favorable outcome as efficiently as possible.  It is essential that your attorney set realistic expectations about 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.

  • We Go Above and Beyond For You and Your Family!  At O'Flaherty Law, we know Guardianship administration can be complicated. Our Lisle guardianship attorneys always remain accessible to our clients and provide prompt communication regarding all developments in your case.  Many of our clients have been so "amazed" by our above-and-beyond service that they have taken time out of their busy schedules to leave us glowing reviews.
  • We Have the Experience!  Our friendly Lisle guardianship attorneys have the skill, experience and dedication to educate you on your options and create the most advantageous plan for you and your family.  In 2015 Kevin O'Flaherty was honored to be named one of Suburban Life Magazine's Best Under 40.  In 2016, we received Avvo Clients' Choice Award for Estate Planning.
  • We are Efficient and Cost-Effective!  We are extremely proud of our affordable rates that allows us to build relationships with more clients.  We invite the comparison to other Lisle guardianship attorneys and would like to hear about it if you can find a more affordable solution to your family's planning needs.

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 experienced at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of experience.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

Great at What We Do

Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is truly experienced in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

Our Lisle Guardianship Attorneys provide excellent service in the following areas of law:

What to Expect From a Consultation

The purpose of a consultation is to determine whether our firm is a good fit for your legal needs. Although we often discuss expected results and costs, our attorneys do not give legal advice unless and until you choose to retain us. Although most consultations are complimentary, some may carry a charge depending on the type of matter and meeting location.

Learn About Guardianship Law in Lisle

In Illinois, in order to be a guardian a guardianship proceeding must be filed with the appropriate circuit court.  Typically, guardianships may be granted by the court 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."  

To be named a guardian, you will be required to obtain an experienced's report certifying that the guardianship is appropriate. The report needs to be reviewed carefully to ensure that the experienced's certifications are accurate, and the correct type of guardianship (limited or total/plenary guardianship) is recommended.
