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.

Aggravated DUIs in Chicago

Read more about the about the Illinois DUI laws from Chicago criminal defense attorneys.

When faced with a DUI, there are important points you need to know. 

  • If you receive a DUI, it's possible the charges can be reduced or dismissed 
  • If the court allows neither, supervision is possible which enables you to keep your licenses along with a conviction off your record

The caveat to this is that you are required to complete everything the court requests in regards to their terms for supervision. This could include alcohol evaluations and classes in addition to fines that can be a condition to receiving court supervision.  If you are granted court supervision, your case will be dismissed once supervision and all court requirements are met, usually in up to 12 months.  

After a second DUI, circumstances become more difficult and you lose any eligibility for court supervision and the revocation of your license is a certainty.  Charges escalate exponentially, if you a repeat offender and it is crucial to know that receiving a third DUI is considered a felony in the state of Illinois.  If you're faced with one or more DUI's it is imperative to have an experienced and skilled attorney to fight for your rights.  Our Chicago DUI attorneys will give your case the attention and detail it vitally needs to put you in the best position to overcome charges against you.
