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 Lake in the Hills 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 Lake in the Hills 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 Lake in the Hills 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.   ​

Lake in the Hills Divorce Attorneys

Welcome to Our Family!

Before I founded O’Flaherty Law in 2011, I had previously worked for five years at a small general practice firm, where I learned to practice nearly every area of law.  When I started my own practice, I based the practice on principles I had learned from my parents, who had owned and operated a very successful dental practice in Downers Grove for 30 years.  For as long as I could remember, my parents’ practice had the same team.  My parents also had loyal patients who would stay with them even after moving hours away from their practice.

There were several lessons about being in a service business that I learned from growing up watching my parents’ dental practice: 

(1) Treat your staff well, and they will treat your clients well—this is essential to creating an organization that provides amazing service consistently on every level;

(2) Make sure that every client understands that they are important to you on a personal level—every client walks away happy . . . no exceptions; and

(3) You can never rest on your laurels—don’t ever settle for anything less than being the absolute best at what you do and providing the highest quality of work to your clients. 

In June, 2012 we moved to the corner of Main Street and the train tracks in downtown Downers Grove.  For someone who had grown up in town, this was a dream come true.   Now, nearly five years after embarking on this journey, we have a strong team of attorneys and support staff practicing nearly every area of law, and an enormous network of happy clients who have spread the word about our services.

At O'Flaherty Law, our mission and standard is to exceed expectations in every aspect of our practice, by providing personalized, efficient, quality legal services.

By operating according to our mission, we hope to achieve the vision of enriching and elevating the lives of our clients through excellent problem solving and exceptional service.  If we have acheived our goal of "wowing" you with our above-and-beyond service, the best compliment we can receive is the opportunity to serve your friends and family.  We are your community law firm. 

I am excited to be helping more people every year, and to continue to spread the values that I learned from my parents’ dental practice: “treat your employees and clients well, be good at what you do, and you will be happy in your work.”
