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.

The 8 Goals Of A Good Estate Plan

In this article, our Chicago elder law attorneys discuss how trusts are uses in order to prevent Chicago probate proceedings. Probate matters see the courts distributing assets of a deceased individuals' estate to heirs and creditors. Probate proceedings are a long and costly process and can be avoided by implementing a revocable living trust that transfers money and other estate assets to it during a lifetime.  The revocable living trust is a legal entity that owns the assets and property during the creators lifetime and that creator has control of it during their lifetime as well as can stipulate what happens to those assets upon their death.
