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.
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’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.

In this article, our Naperville real estate attorneys explain the top five reasons to hire an attorney for residential real estate purchases or sales, including:
In this article, our Naperville real estate lawyers explain how we help modify contracts in residential real estate.
If you are the buyer, once the home inspection is completed, we will review the home inspector's report with you and advise you on how to deal with any issues that your home inspector found with the home. We will then send a letter to the seller's attorney requesting that the specific problems with the home be either repaired prior to closing (with receipts provided) or that cash or closing credits be added to the deal to compensate you for the cost of your own repairs to the property.
Once both sides are in agreement as to any modifications that need to be made, we will draft an addendum to the contract listing all of the modifications, and provide the addendum to you, your lender, and your realtor.
Between the date that a final contract is agreed upon and the closing, the seller's attorney will work to prepare all necessary closing documents and obtain title insurance to ensure that the party selling the property has the full title to the property. The buyer's attorney will work with the lender to make sure that financing is properly obtained, and communicate with everyone involved in the transaction to make sure that closing happens on time and goes smoothly.
At closing, the seller's attorney will provide the title company with the closing documents and the buyer's attorney will review the closing figures for accuracy and explain the closing and loan documents to the buyer in detail, while working to resolve any issues with the documents that may impede the closing.
Our Naperville real estate lawyers have the skill and experience to ensure that every stage of this process goes smoothly and that your interests are protected.
