Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Your attorney should not speak in legalese.

Finding an attorney who doesn't use complex legal jargon and is a “real person” can be difficult. You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and they should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.

Your attorney should be accessible.

You deserve a responsive legal team that communicates regularly and promptly returns your calls.  Although legal matters can take time, you should feel confident in the progress of your case.

Your attorney should be realistic about costs and outcomes.

You want a favorable outcome as efficiently as possible. Your attorney should set realistic expectations on costs, concerns about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you can expect your case to take.

  • We Are Cost-Conscious And Cost-Effective!  Our goal is to earn you a cost-effective favorable resolution to your case. Before accruing any fees we allow you to make an educated decision with respect to the costs of each step in the dispute resolution & litigation process.  We work aggressively but efficiently to minimize the expense of each stage in the process.  
  • We Put Your Interests First!  We are prepared to aggressively pursue or defend or prosecute your case.  However, because 95% of cases settle before trial, we work with an eye toward a favorable settlement at all times.   It is in your best interest to have a speedy and favorable resolution to your case without expending significant attorneys fees, and, because we put your interests first, this is our goal.  
  • We Are Your Aggressive Advocate!  Our team of St. Charles civil litigation attorneys has made a name for ourselves representing the "little guy" against powerful corporations.  We have handled class action suits in Federal Court as well as appeals and multi-state litigation.  No case is too big, and we are prepared to take on and defeat powerful adversaries.

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.

St. Charles litigation lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains written discovery in Kane County civil litigation.

Written Discovery in Kane County Civil Litigation

In this article, our St. Charles litigation attorneys explain the written discovery process in civil disputes. Early in a litigation case, each party generally sends a list of requests for information and documents to the other side.  These are known as interrogatories and requests for production of documents. If the requests are issued to a third party who is not a party to the case they are called subpoenas.  The parties may also request that one another admit or deny certain facts in order to narrow the issues for trial.

Motions for Summary Judgment in Kane County Civil Disputes

In this article, our St. Charles civil litigation attorneys explain motions for summary judgment. The purpose of a trial is to have a jury or the judge decide which party's version of the facts is true. However, oftentimes, the parties don't disagree on the underlying facts, but instead on how the law should be applied to those facts. In these cases, a motion for summary judgment requests the court to rule on the matter without a trial by applying the law to the undisputed facts that are already in the record through affidavits, written discovery or depositions.

St. Charles civil attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains contempt of court in litigation cases.

Contempt of Court in Kane County Civil Litigation

In this article, our St. Charles civil litigation lawyers explain contempt of court. In civil cases, judges will often order parties to take certain actions, such as personally appear in court or respond to written discovery by a certain date. If a party fails to comply with a court order, the other party may file a Petition for Rule to Show Cause, which asks the court to hold the other party in contempt. This usually will lead to a fine if the respondent fails to promptly comply with the court's order.
