Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

Rock Island Probate: When is Probate Necessary in Rock Island?

In this article, Rock Island probate attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses when probate is necessary to an Moline estate. Probate is a court case that is often required when someone passes away in order to give the estate the legal authority to collect the deceased person's assets and distribute them to his or her heirs and beneficiaries in Rock Island. We explain when probate is required in order for the estate to be distributed. Probate is generally necessary in Moline if the deceased person owned real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000 outside of a trust or a payable-on-death account.

Rock Island Estate Planning: Using Revocable Living Trusts to Avoid Probate

In this Learn About Law article, our Rock Island attorneys discuss how revocable living trusts can be used to avoid probate in Rock Island. Revocable living trusts in Rock Island are legal entities that can own property separate and apart from their creator. During the creators lifetime, the grantor has complete control over all of the assets owned by the trust as if they were owned in his or her individual name, because she will be both the trustee and beneficiary.

However, when the grantor passes, the assets in the trust are not considered part of his or her "estate" and therefore need not go through probate.
