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 experience 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 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.

Will County litigation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains motions to dismiss in civil lawsuits.

What is a Motion to Dismiss in Civil Litigation?

In this article, our Will County litigation lawyers explain motions to dismiss in civil litigation. A civil law suit is initiated by the plaintiff filing a document called a "complaint" in the appropriate circuit court.  The complaint lays out factual allegations about the Defendant's actions that, if true, would entitle the plaintiff to some sort of remedy from the court. If the complaint fails to lay out these allegations with the required specificity, or if the allegations do not amount to a valid cause of action against the defendant, the defendant may file a motion to dismiss, which requests that the court dismiss the case.

Will County litigation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the written discovery phase of litigation.

The Written Discovery Phase Of Litigation Explained

In this article, our Will County litigation attorneys discuss what happens in a civil lawsuit once the defendant has filed an answer to the complaint. At this point the pleading phase of litigation is complete and the written discovery phase begins.  

During written discovery, each side will typicallyissue three types of written discovery requests to the other:  Interrogatories, Requests for Production of Documents, and Requests for Admissions of Fact.

  • Interrogatories:  These are written questions to the other parties that must be answered fully in writing.  Each side is allowed to issue 30 questions to the other party without leave from court to issue additional interrogatories.  The purpose of the questions is to reveal the other side's theory of the case, the witnesses they intend to put on at trial, and the facts that they intend to use to support their case.  It allows the attorneys to learn who they need to depose and gives them a foundation for their deposition questions. 
  • Requests for Production of Documents: Requests to produce require the other side to produce any documents specifically listed that are relevant to the claim or defense of any party in the case.  Typically the attorney issuing the request to produce will include a catch all request, asking for anything relevant.  However, it is also important to narrowly tailor the requests to the type of document you are looking for so that if those particular documents are not provided, the party that failed to provide them can be sanctioned by the court. 
  • Requests for Admission of Facts: Each side can request the other side to admit or deny up to 30 facts.  The purpose of this is to narrow the issues that have to be decided at trial.  Once a fact is admitted, it cannot later be denied.  If a fact is denied but it turns out later  that the party denying it knew it to be true, the party that wrongfully denied the fact will be sanctioned by the court.  If the Requests for Admission of Facts are not returned by the statutory deadline they are all deemed admitted, which has cost some negligent attorneys to lose cases.

Who Pays Attorney Fees in Illinois Civil Litigation Cases?

In this article, our Will County civil litigation attorneys explain how attorney fees work in civil litigation cases.  Generally, each party bears his or her own attorney fees in civil litigation.  However, an exception to this rule exist where state or federal statute provides that for a particular cause of action the plaintiff can seek attorney fees as damages if successful in his or her case.
