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.

Further Reading from our Aurora Estate Tax Attorneys

Using Revocable Living Trusts To Avoid Probate Court

In this video, our Aurora estate tax attorneys discuss revocable living trusts and explain how we can use them as part as your estate plan. Revocable Living Trusts are used to ensure that your estate does not go through probate when you pass. Probate is necessary for most individuals who own real estate outside of a trust. Probate is a year-long court case that can cost a significant portion of your estate in attorney fees and court cost. We can help you draft a revocable living trust that will make probate unnecessary. This will allow you to transfer your major assets to the trust in your lifetime to insure that that they will be dealt with outside of probate instantly when you pass, without the need to pay an attorney.​
