Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Cost-Effective

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.

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.

Comprehensive

We are your community law firm.  Our business is built on long-term relationships with our clients.  Our clients have the luxury of building trust over time with one team of attorneys, rather than having to find a new attorney for each different type of matter that arises over the course of their lives.  No one attorney can be an expert at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of expertise.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

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 truly experienced 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.

‍Implied Warranty of Habitability for Champaign County Businesses

In this video our Champaign County commercial real estate attorneys discuss types of commercial leases and tips for negotiating that lease. First there is a commercial net lease that includes utilities and property taxes on top of a base rent, while on the other hand there is a double net lease that has insurance on the tenants side in addition to those things. Finally, there is a triple net lease that has the tenant paying for all of the cost of the building except for structural repairs on top of their base rent, and then there is a full service gross lease that has the tenant paying for a flat base rent every month and the landlord is then responsible for all of the costs of the building. A full service gross lease is going to have the highest rent out of the four options.

When negotiating the lease it is important to think about the length of the lease, comparable rents, and what type of commercial property it is. Next attorneys come in to make sure clauses are favorable to you. As a tenant, it is important having the right to sublease. Making sure the landlord can not lease competitors in the same building is another right you would want to make sure you have before leasing. Lastly, fair signage approval and fair clause for landlord repairs and improvements are other important aspects to check when signing a commercial real estate lease.

‍Implied Warranty of Habitability for Champaign County Businesses

Our Champaign County commercial real estate attorneys discuss how the implied warranty of habitability is a legal doctrine created by Illinois case law. In every written or oral lease, Illinois courts imply a warranty on the part of the landlord that the property will be kept in a condition that is habitable. A property is not uninhabitable simply because of minor building code violations. Rather the defect in the property must cause a reasonable person to consider the property uninhabitable in order for a breach to exist.

What are the Risks of Not Using an Attorney When Buying or Selling Commercial Real Estate?

Our Champaign County commercial real estate attorneys discuss the importance of having an attorney when buying or selling commercial real estate property. There are a number of issues that can arise during the process of buying, selling, financing and developing commercial property and trying to navigate the process alone, or even with the help of a commercial real estate agent can be difficult. Commercial real estate purchases also have many more laws and regulations than buying a home, all of which must be followed in order for the transaction to be valid. While some states do not require you to have an attorney present at closing, or at all throughout the process, it is highly advised that your attorney is at the closing. In fact, it’s not uncommon for the seller to invoke power of attorney and let their attorney handle all the paperwork and signing at the closing
