Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

How Family Mediation Works In Illinois

In this article, our Champaign County child custody mediation attorneys discuss the process of mediation and why it is important not only for people seeking to resolve their domestic issues in a cost-effective manner, but also to lead to more lasting solutions without litigation. While attorneys may not need to be involved during a third-party mediation, it is important to have an attorney present to understand your rights and protect your interests. This becomes especially important when you feel there is unequal power in the relationship. Our mediation attorneys have your best interest at heart and will be your advocate in mediation decisions related to family, child custody, child support, or divorce.

Dissipation & Contribution in Champaign County Divorces

In this article, our Champaign County family mediation attorneys explain the difference between contributions and dissipation when it comes to marital estates. We discuss what assets are typically considered marital and non-marital assets in the eyes of the courts and how the courts differentiate them. When one spouse uses marital resources for non-marital purposes, it is likely they have “dissipated” the marital estate. If a dissipation has occurred, then the spouse who has caused the dissipation must reimburse the marital estate for this improper expenditure. A contribution, on the other hand, occurs when one spouse uses non-marital funds to contribute to a marital expense. When a contribution has occurred then the contributing party is entitled to reimbursement from the marital estate.
