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.

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.

In this Learn About Law podcast & videoblog, Naperville litigation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty of O'Flaherty Law discusses Motions For Summary Judgment in civil litigation. Courts will grant a motion for summary judgment and enter judgment in favor of the party filing the motion when the party filing the motion can show that: (1) there is no dispute as to the material facts of the case; and (2) based on the undisputed facts, the party filing the motion is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.

In this article, Naperville litigation lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains Motions for Summary Judgement, one inflection points at which your case could be settled.

95% of cases settle prior to trial.  The earlier in the process that we are able to settle your case, the less you will have to spend on attorney fees and court costs.  We will not sacrifice a favorable outcome for a quick settlement, but we are always looking for an opportunity to resolve your matter.

The Pleading Phase of Civil Litigation and Motions to Dismiss

In this article, our Naperville litigation attorneys explain the pleading phase of Illinois civil litigation.

A plaintiff initiates a civil suit by filing a Complaint with the appropriate court.  The purpose of the Complaint is to state a formal cause of action, which consists of a series of allegations showing that the Defendant violated civil law and that the plaintiff is entitled to damages or other relief.  

Once the defendant has been served with the Complaint, the defendant can do one of two things:  

(1) She can file an Answer to the Complaint, either admitting or denying each of the allegations of the complaint and raising affirmative defenses defeating the causes of action stated in the Complaint; or

(2) She can file a Motion to Dismiss, arguing that either the Complaint is defective on its face, or that there is some other affirmative matter that requires the case to be dismissed. 

If the plaintiff chooses to file a Motion to Dismiss, there are two types of Motions to Dismiss that she can choose from.  Each is named after the section of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure that provides for its existence.  A 2-615 Motion to Dismiss argues that the complaint fails to state a cause of action or is otherwise defective on its face.  A 2-619 Motion to Dismiss argues that there is an affirmative matter that requires the complaint to be dismissed early in the litigation process.
