Kevin O'Flaherty

Kevin O’Flaherty is a graduate of the University of Iowa and Chicago-Kent College of Law. He has experience in litigation, estate planning, bankruptcy, real estate, and comprehensive business representation.  He regularly teaches seminars on Estate Planning and Business Law. Kevin grew up in Downers Grove, Illinois, and is committed to giving back to the community both through his work as an attorney and through personal service activities.  Last year he served as the Vice President of the Rotary Club of Downers Grove.  For the past several years, he has chaired the Business Expo committee for Rotary Grove Fest, Downers Grove’s annual summer festival.  Kevin was recently appointed to the Board of Directors for Chamber 630, the Chamber of Commerce for the Downers Grove and Woodridge area.  

This year, he is honored to be a recipient of Suburban Life's "Best Under 40" Award.  In 2016, Kevin received an award from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys as one of the 10 Best Attorneys for Client Satisfaction for 2016. Kevin is also active in the Willowbrook/Burr Ridge Chamber of Commerce., the Lemont Chamber of Commerce, and the Tinley Park Chamber of Commerce Kevin is licensed in Illinois, as well as the Northern District of Illinois Federal Court. He is a member of the DuPage County Bar Association and the Illinois State Bar Association. In his spare time, he used to play guitar, bass, and keys in local bands, but now his evenings are spent with his three year old daughter, Paige; his one year old son, Owen;  his smelly black lab, Leah; and his patient wife, Lauren.

Kevin then moved on to private practice, specializing in Family Law, Consumer Protection, and Real Estate Transactions, gaining trial and litigation experience in these areas of law.

In his spare time, Kevin enjoys cooking, racing and restoring vintage and modern automobiles and motorcycles, and spending time with his wife, Jenifer, and dog, Chewie.

Matt Hector

Matthew Hector has been practicing law for the last 16 years. For the last 11 years, he has primarily focused on foreclosure defense, consumer defense, and bankruptcy law. Mr. Hector has an extensive background in civil litigation and is an accomplished appellate attorney in both federal and state courts.

In fact, Mr. Hector made new law under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. In Pantoja v. Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC., (Case No.15-1567, U.S. Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit), Mr. Hector successfully defended a ruling from the district court. The ruling expanded consumer protections when debt collectors try to collect old debts. Portfolio Recovery Associates petitioned the Supreme Court of the United States for a writ of certiorari. The Court denied PRA’s petition after considering briefs from both sides. On March 3, 2020, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau published a proposed rule in the Federal Register. That rule would make the case law that Mr. Hector made part of the federal regulatory scheme.

Mr. Hector graduated from the University of Alabama in 1998 with an honors degree in English and German. He received his Juris Doctor from The John Marshall Law School, cum laude, in 2004. He received his L.L.M. in Information Technology & Privacy, with honors, from The John Marshall Law School in 2007. While a student at John Marshall, Mr. Hector was an editor for the John Marshall Law Review. His article was published in 2003. Privacy to Be Patched in Later - an Examination of the Decline of Privacy Rights, 36 J. Marshall L. Rev. 985 (2003)

Mr. Hector has continued to publish since he completed his studies. In addition to other law journal articles, he has drafted a chapter on contract law in the entertainment and video game industry for a textbook, published articles about the law and video games, and wrote the Illinois Bar Journal’s LawPulse column for 4 ½ years. He also authored a book on consumer defense law entitled “Consumer Defense: A Tactical Guide to Foreclosure, Bankruptcy, & Creditor Harassment.”

Mark Hitt

Mark Hitt originally hails from Denver, Colorado. He attended and graduated from Elmhurst College, where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and where he met and married his college sweetheart, Jackie. He attended DePaul University College of Law, where his focus was on trial advocacy, criminal law, and international law.

Upon passing the bar, Mark began his legal career as a prosecutor with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, eventually trying hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases, from traffic cases to multiple murders. He then worked for the City of Chicago, supervising a team of ten investigators, who responded to claims of physical abuse and racial bias by members of the Chicago Police Department, as well as responding to and investigating police-involved shootings. He has been a criminal defense and family law attorney for the last two years.

Mark has courtroom experience in many aspects of civil and administrative litigation as well, in personal injury, family, and chancery cases. He currently lives with his wife, three children, mother-in-law, and his “obese Maltese”, Chowder.

Why O'Flaherty Law?

We Are Affordable!  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. 

We Are 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.

We Are Comprehensive!  Wouldn't it be nice to work with the same trusted adviser for all of your legal solutions?  At O'Flaherty Law, our team approach provides you with experts in nearly every area of law.  Regardless of your legal needs, you will get the same trusted quality of service and continuity of care.  We are not a sole practitioner that is spread too thin and expert at nothing.  We are also not a large conglomerate firm that only massive corporations can afford.  We are uniquely set up to provide you with expert comprehensive service from a team of attorneys at affordable prices.

We Are Great at What We Do!  Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is a true expert in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

Welcome to Our Family!

Since I founded O'Flaherty Law in 2011, I have been guided by a few core values.  As an attorney, a business owner, and an individual I have always striven to act with integrity, to be a person that my clients and my friends could trust completely to act in their best interest, and to truly take my clients' best interest to heart.  When I sit down with a client in an initial consultation, I am always looking for ways that I can help them and add value to their lives, whether through my vocation or by putting them in touch with resources that can help them accomplish their goals.  I have always believed that if I put people and community first, everyone involved would achieve the best possible outcome. 

As my team has grown, I have taken great care to select attorneys and staff that share my values and who are personally invested in doing excellent work for each of our clients.  Our mission is to make every client's experience with our firm a positive one.  We are your trusted advisers, your confidants, and your advocates.  We appreciate the opportunity to work with you, and we take the trust that you place in us seriously.  Thank you for considering our firm for your legal needs, and welcome to the O'Flaherty Law family!
