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.

Mechanics Liens in Chicago

In this video, our Chicago construction attorneys discuss the purpose of guaranteed maximum price contracts in construction. A guaranteed maximum price is a limit on the amount that the owner will have to pay the contractor on the project, regardless of the actual cost of the project to the contractor. Unlike a standard “cost-plus-fee” contract, a guaranteed maximum price contract shifts the much of the risk that the project will be more expensive than estimates from the owner to the contractor.

Mechanics Liens in Chicago

In this video, our Chicago construction attorneys explain how Mechanics Liens are a tool that is used in Chicago courts to seek payment for outstanding debts. The purpose of the Mechanics Lien Act is to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, fixtures, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials.  The Mechanics Lien Act provides a mechanism whereby contractors and subcontractors can place a lien on property that they work to improve in the amount of the value of their services and materials.  The lien prevents the owner of the property from transferring the property without first paying the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien.  A Mechanics Lien also allows the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien to foreclose on the property and have it sold in order to satisfy the lien.

General Contractor Agreements in Chicago

In this article, our Chicago construction attorneys discuss the process of creating general contractor agreements in Chicago. General contractor agreements for construction projects contain many provisions that are subject to negotiation between the owner and the general contractor based on the specifics of the project and the relative negotiating power of each party. We explain the contract process from the opening letter to revisions and updating of the contract between both parties including the scope of the project along with other provisions including time to completion, scope of work, allowances, change orders performance and payment bonds.
