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.

Estate Planning Goal: Appointment of Fiduciaries & Distribution of Assets

In this article, our Tinley Park estate planning attorneys explain the appointment of fiduciaries in your estate planning.  Fiduciaries are individuals who will be responsible for managing the assets of your estate when you pass, such as a trustee if you have a trust or an executor if you have a will. Other fiduciaries include the guardian that you appoint for minor children in your will; and agents appointed in your healthcare power of attorney and financial power of attorney, who will make major decisions for you if you become mentally incompetent through old age, illness, or accident.

Tinley Park estate planning attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses what probate is, why it is undesirable, and how we use trusts to avoid it.

Using Revocable Living Trusts to Ensure that Your Estate Avoids Probate

In this article, our Tinley Park estate planning attorneys explain how we use Revocable Living Trusts to ensure that our clients' estates avoid probate.  Most people who own their home or more than $100,000.00 in other assets will trigger a probate estate when they pass away, unless they have a proper estate plan. Probate is a year long court case, in which the judge oversees the distribution of assets in your estate. We want to avoid probate, because it can suck up a significant amount of the value of your estate in attorney fees and court costs, because your loved ones will not have access to your assets during the pendancy of the case, and because it can add significant stress to an already stressful situation. We explain the use of Revocable Living Trusts to ensure that, when you pass, your loved ones will have immediate access to your assets without the need to hire an attorney.
