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.

Orders of Protections vs. Restraining Orders

In this video, our Champaign order of protection attorneys explain the difference between a restraining order and an order of protection.  "Restraining order" is a broad term used to cover court orders requiring someone to do or not do something.  An order of protection is a type of restraining order that is intended to prevent abuse at the hands of a family member or household member. This article by our Elmhurst order of protection lawyers covers how to file for an order of protection and the various remedies that are available if an order of protection is granted.

What Constitutes “Abuse” for the Purpose of Illinois Orders of Protection?

In this article, our Champaign order of protection attorneys will discuss what constitutes “abuse” for the purposes of Illinois Orders of Protection.  Orders of Protection are court orders intended to protect the petitioner or some other protected party from future abuse by family or household members. Unless the petitioner for an Order of Protection is filing on behalf of a neglected high-risk adult, the petitioner must demonstrate that either the petitioner or the minor on behalf of whom the petitioner is filing has been “abused” by the respondent.  “Abuse” is defined by the Illinois Domestic Violence Act as:

  • Physical abuse;
  • Harassment;
  • Interference with personal liberty;
  • Intimidation of a dependent; or
  • Willful deprivation.
