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 Great at What We Do!  ​Kevin O'Flaherty was honored to be named one of Suburban Life Magazine's Best Under 40.  As a firm, O'Flaherty Law was named one of the 10 Best Attorneys for Client Satisfaction for 2016 by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.  Because we have received so much positive client feedback, we were also the recipient of the Avvo Clients' Choice Award for 2016 in the practice areas of both Divorce and Estate Planning.   We have an A+ rating with the better Business Bureau, and are proud to have never received a complaint.  Most importantly, many of our previous clients have thought highly enough of our above-and-beyond service to take time out of their busy schedules to leave us positive testimonials.  Our Elmhurst attorneys are the best at what they do, and we are proud of the good work that we perform as a firm for each of our clients. 

We Are Affordable!  We are proud of our affordable rates, which allow us to build long-term relationships with as many members of the community as possible.  For many legal matters, we offer budget-friendly flat fees.  If a flat fee is not feasible, our attorneys will work efficiently with an eye toward your budget.  From the outset of your case, we will set reasonable expectations for costs and outcomes, and continue to communicate with you at every stage of your matter, so that you will never be surprised by a legal bill.  We would rather charge less and have you rave to your friends and family about the amazing value that you received from our firm.

We Are Client-Focused!  Legal skill and expertise should be a prerequisite for any attorney you are considering hiring.  What sets us apart is our above-and-beyond approach to client service.  We won't speak to you in legal ease; you will feel comfortable with our down-to-earth Elmhurst attorneys.  We are accessible, available 24/7.  We promptly return all calls and e-mails and will affirmatively communicate with you and educate you at each stage of your case.  Finally, we are your trusted adviser.  We always act with the utmost integrity, and are always honest and realistic with our clients about the likelihood of and the steps necessary to accomplish their legal goals. 

We Are Comprehensive!  Unlike sole practitioners who are spread too thin, our team of skilled Elmhurst lawyers and staff is large enough to provide comprehensive service in nearly every practice area and provide our clients with the resources they need to achieve your goals.  However, we are not like expensive downtown firms that are too large to focus on client service.  We have found a sweet spot, allowing us to provide affordable, above-and-beyond customer service, while being a one-stop shop for our community's legal needs.  Once we earn your trust, you will never have to look for another attorney again, regardless of your legal matter.   ​

Elmhurst Divorce Attorney

Welcome to Our Family!

My mother and my uncles grew up in Elmhurst, attending York High School.  Although she and my father went on to be dentists in Downers Grove, she would always talk to me about what a wonderful experience she had in this town.  It is such a thrill to be able to be a part of the community where my mom grew up. 

As a member of the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce, the founder of the Elmhurst Business Lounge (a gathering place for Elmhurst business owners and professionals), and an active member of the Rotary Club, it is important to me to be a part of and give back to the community that I choose to work in.

As dentists, my parents had the same staff for 30 years, and had lifelong patients, many of who would travel for hours to see them after moving out of state.  The secret to their long-term employee and patient relationships was that they always acted with honesty and integrity, treated every patient and employee with respect, and put in the time to be the absolute best at their craft.  

These are the core values that I carried with me when  I founded O'Flaherty Law.  As I have assembled my excellent team of Elmhurst attorneys and staff, I made sure that each of my team members shared these values. Because of our integrity, our customer service, and our expertise, our team has built a loyal following of repeat clients, who can always count on their attorney to have their best interest at heart. 

I am very proud of the culture of service that we have built.  I invite you to join our family of friends and clients, and I truly appreciate the opportunity to work with you.  It is a trust that I do not take lightly, and that I will work every day to continue to earn.
