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.

What are Mechanics Liens?

In this video, our Champaign County construction 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.

What are Mechanics Liens?

In this article, our Champaign County construction dispute attorneys explain the purpose of Mechanic Liens are to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials. Mechanics Liens are available to subcontractors on public construction projects as well as private projects. Mechanics Liens on public projects are governed by 770 ILCS 60/23. While a lien on private property is placed on the real estate itself, a lien on a public project is placed on the amounts due to the general contractor from the governmental organization in question. Mechanics Liens are not available to general contractors on public projects. A series of steps must be followed by the holder of a Mechanics Lien by strict deadlines in order to prevent the holder from losing his or her lien rights. This is called "perfecting"a Mechanics Lien. In addition to the recording and enforcement deadlines required of general contractors, subcontractors are required to send additional notices in order to perfect their Mechanics Liens.
