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.

Maintenance Awards in Schaumburg Divorce Cases

In this article, our Schaumburg divorce attorneys discuss factors courts could consider when determining the awarding of maintenance during a divorce case, the amount of the award, and how it will be paid.  Maintenance can be paid in lump sum or continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis.  Courts attempt to place the parties in a relatively equal position close to the standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage.  Some of the most important factors are the length of the marriage, earning capacity of each spouse, and any sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse's career.

Changes to Schaumburg Divorce Laws

In 2016 the Schaumburg Marriage and Defense of Marriage Act (the "IMDMA") saw several changes.  The intent of these changes was to reduce the likelihood of disputes and to bring the language of the Act in line within the modern realities and understanding of marriage, divorce and parenting.  

Irreconcilable differences will now be the only grounds for divorce in Schaumburg.  Previously, parties could list irreconcilable differences or one of several specific statutory grounds when filing for a divorce.  However, irreconcilable differences used to require a time of living separate and apart than specific grounds (2 years).  Now, the time of living separate and apart is 6 months, and can be waived if both parties agree.  

The terms "custodial parent" and "visitation" have now been replaced by "allocation of parenting time and responsibility."   Also, four categories of parenting responsibility will be divided among the parents, those being religious, educational, extra-curricular, and medical responsibility.Parents were previously permitted to move anywhere in-state without leave of court, but required court permission to move out of state.  Now the determination is based on distance instead of state lines.  Parents may now move within 25 miles without a court order, regardless of in-state or out.  Moves of more than 25 miles will require permission of court.  Outside of the Schaumburg metro area, parties can move within 50 miles without leave of court as long as it is in-state.

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.”
