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.

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.

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.
