Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Your attorney should not speak in legalese.

Finding an attorney that 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.

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.

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

Recent Changes to Illinois Child Support Laws

In this article, our Illinois family law attorneys explain recent changes to Illinois child support law.

On July 1,2017, child support guidelines changed and now child support is based on an “income shares” model. Based on the relative incomes of the parents this may cause some parents to pay more and some to pay less in child support than under the previous law.  ​

‍However, the new law does treat child support differently in “shared parenting” situations. Shared parenting means that each parent has 146 overnights with the child a year. Time spent with the child will factor into much child support the non-custodial parent is responsible for. The more time the less child support obligations will be, time spent does not become a factor however until the 146 overnights requirement is met.

Recent Changes To Illinois Divorce Law

In this article, our Illinois divorce attorneys explain recent changes to Illinois family law.

In 2016 Illinois divorcee law changed in order to reduce the likelihood of disputes and make the divorcee process more modern. Listed below are a few of the more important revisions made to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act:

  • Parental Responsibility and Custody: “Custodial parent” and “non-custodial parent” are terms that are no longer being used instead the court now determines the “allocation of parental time and responsibility.” Along with the terminology changing responsibilities for major decisions are now divided up into four categories. They shall be divided up amongst the two parties they are; medical decisions, educational decisions, extra-curricular decisions and religious decisions.
  • Parental Relocation: Before 2016, the custodial parent was able to move anywhere in the state of Illinois without a court order, but needed court approval before moving out of state. The new law states that the parents can move within 25 miles in or out of state without the approval of the court. Outside of the Chicagoland area, parents are allowed to move within 50 miles without the approval of the court, unless it is an out-of-state move.
  • Grounds for Divorce: Before 2016, grounds for divorce were varied they were either irreconcilable differences or more specific statutory grounds such as substance abuse or adultery. In 2016, the law changed so that the only grounds for divorce in Illinois is irreconcilable differences. The parties must live apart and separate for a period of six months before divorcing. This requirement may be waived should the parties agree that it is for the best.

Legal Separation Vs. Divorce In Wisconsin: Which One Is Right For Me?

Oftentimes an individual who is considering getting a divorce in Wisconsin also looks at legal separation as possibility. Furthermore, there appears to be some confusion as to what being legally separated really is. Most people don’t even realize that it is a legal process and just move out of the martial home, considering themselves to be “separated,” which is also known as a “de facto separation.”
