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.

Chicago Trust Contests

In this article, our Chicago trust litigation attorneys examine trust contests in Chicago. We discuss what a trust challenge is, who can challenge a trust as well as the legal grounds to challenge a trust. A trust contest occurs when a party believes that the “trustor,” or the deceased person who made the trust, was incapacitated or influenced when the trust document was signed. These matters happen more often that one would expect and when this has been determined to be the case by a party, a trust contest is filed with the appropriate court.

Chicago Statutory Custodial Claims

In this article, our Chicago trust dispute attorneys explain statutory custodial claims. Statutory custodial claims are claims for payment from a deceased person’s probate estate that can be made by certain caregivers to the deceased (“the decedent”).  Statutory custodial claims are created and governed by 755 ILCS 5/18-1.1, part of the Illinois Probate Act.  
Certain claims that can be made against the estates of a deceased individual can be brought by:

  1. The claimant must be the spouse, parent, brother, sister, or child of the decedent;
  2. The decedent must have had a disability for at least 3 years; and
  3. The claimant must have lived with and personally cared for the decedent for at least 3 years.

Testamentary Capacity in Chicago Trust Litigation

In this article, our Chicago trust litigation lawyers explain lack of testamentary capacity in trust disputes. If a qualified party believes that a trust was not created by someone who was not mentally competent to understand what they were doing when executing the trust, the trust can potentially be invalidated based on lack of testamentary capacity.  In order to execute a valid will, the person creating the will or trust (“the testator”) must have the mental capacity to understand the ramifications of the act of executing the will or trust.  Lack of testamentary capacity is one of several bases for arguing that a will or trust is invalid, including undue influence, fraud, revocation, and noncompliance with formalities of execution
