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.

Our Tinley Park divorce attorneys discuss property division in divorce. We explain the difference between marital assets and non-marital assets. We explain the factors domestic relations courts consider when dividing assets in a marital estate, including the duration of the marriage, the financial situation of each party, and tax consequences of asset division.
Our Tinley Park divorce lawyers outline the factors that are considered by courts when awarding spousal maintenance, also known as alimony. We also explain the various ways that spousal maintenance can be paid, including by continuing payments on a temporary or permanent basis, or by a lump sum.
Divorce courts attempt to put the parties in a relatively equal position as close to the standard of living they enjoyed during the marriage as possible. Important factors that courts consider are the earning capacity of each spouse, the duration of the marriage and any sacrifices one spouse made during the marriage for the other spouse's career or business.
