We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who 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.

We believe 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.

We believe 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, the 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 of 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.

General Contractor Agreements Explained

In this video, our Aurora construction law attorneys understand that general contractor agreements for construction projects contain many provisions that are subject to negotiation between the owner and the general contractor based on the specifics of the project and the relative negotiating power of each party. We at O'Flaherty Law Aurora are ready and eager to assist in any way we can with any part of construction law including general contractor agreements. Don't hesitate to contact us with questions, comments, or concerns.

Guaranteed Maximum Price Construction Contracts Explained

In this video, our Aurora construction law attorneys explain guaranteed maximum price contracts in construction, including allowances, contingencies, schedules of values, and change orders in GMP contracts. In a guaranteed maximum price contract, the contractor will charge the owner the cost of the labor and materials plus a percentage of that cost for profit. The total cost to the owner may be less than the guaranteed maximum price, but it will not exceed it. Unlike a lump sum contract wherein a contractor is paid a flat fee for the work, the guaranteed maximum price contract allows the owner to potentially save money if the project ends up costing less than estimated.

When Can You Back out of a Signed Contract?

In this video, our Aurora construction law attorneys answer questions about when someone can back out of a signed contract. We explain the FTC's three-day grace period to cancel a contract. For example, home repair or remodeling contracts also require a three-day right to cancel. This is required when the sale of services or merchandise is $25 or more, and if the contract is signed when the salesperson or contractor is physically present in the consumer’s residence.

We at O'Flaherty Law are here to help with all your contract needs especially when it comes to construction. Don't hesitate to reach out for any and all assistance you may need.
