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.

Powers and Duties of a Guardian in Champaign County Adult Guardianship Cases

Our Champaign County guardianship litigation attorneys explain what takes place when a guardianship is contested in Illinois when a guardianship is not working out or is no longer needed. When taking a look at minors in specific, the biological parents of the minor who is under guardianship may petition to terminate the guardianship. Once the petition has been filed, a date for a court hearing will be set. The parents of the minor must prepare sufficient evidence in support of their claim before the court hearing. They must gather evidence that proves they are fully capable of caring for their child and that there has been a material change in circumstances since entry of the guardianship. Upon hearing each party’s evidence, the court will decide whether to terminate the guardianship, modify the appointment in any way, or leave the guardianship appointment as is.

Powers and Duties of a Guardian in Champaign County Adult Guardianship Cases

In this article, our Champaign County contested guardianship attorneys discuss the powers and duties of a guardian in Illinois adult guardianship cases. The article outlines the "substituted judgement" rule and how it affects the guardian's decisions based on the disabled adult's moral, philosophical, or religious beliefs. The guardian should also keep "substituted judgement" in mind when making medical decisions or any other decisions the court deem necessary.

Contested Adult Guardianship Hearings Explained

In this post, our Champaign County contested guardianship attorneys explain In the case of adult wards challenging a guardianship order, the ward may choose to challenge due to a change in his or her capabilities of caring for and making sound decisions for himself or herself. The ward therefore must argue that he or she should no longer be considered legally "disabled" to the extent that a guardianship is necessary. Regardless of his or her disability, however, a ward always has the right to request the termination or modification of the guardianship order. The ward or a person on behalf of the ward, or even an attorney, may file a petition with the court to terminate the guardianship.


Generally, these findings can either result in a dismissal of the petition and keeping the guardianship as is, termination of the disability adjudication and termination of the guardianship, modifying the responsibilities of the guardian, or making any other order the court deems to be in the best interest of the ward.
