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.

Tinley Park probate lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty describes when probate is necessary in Cook County, Illinois.

When Is Probate Necessary in Cook County?

Our Tinley Park probate attorneys explains what probate is and when it is necessary in Illinois.  Probate is a court case in which the court oversees the administration of a deceased person's estate, and the distribution of his or her assets to heirs and creditors. Probate is generally required in Illinois if the deceased individual (known as the "decedent") owned real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 of non-real estate assets outside of a trust or payable on death accounts.  If probate is not necessary, the estate may be administered by the executor or trustee preparing a Small Estate Affidavit.

Tinley Park estate attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the difference between supervised administration and independent administration of probate estates.

What is the Difference between Independent Administration and Supervised Administration of a Probate Estate?

Our Tinley Park probate attorneys explain the differences between supervised administration and independent administration of a probate estate.  In independent administration, the executor or adminstrator of the estate can make most decisions without court approval.  If an interested party requests supervised administration of the estate, the executor or administrator will be required to get court approval for most major decisions and distributions and file additional reports with the court.  This protects the interests of adverse parties and may protect the executor or administrator from liability. ​
