Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

Kevin's firm handled setting up my will and trust recently. They took something that seemed intimidating and made it easy to understand. I've also referred a couple clients to Kevin - he's trustworthy, approachable and very fairly priced.

Further Reading from our Cook County Traffic Attorneys

When Can the Police Search My Vehicle?

In this article, our Cook County traffic lawyers explain when the police may search your vehicle.  The police may only search your vehicle if they have probable cause to believe a crime has been committed or if you give your consent. Our Cook County traffic attorneys recommend refusing consent in order to preserve your best possible defense. However, if the police attempt to search your vehicle even though you refuse consent, you should not resist them, as your traffic attorney will likely be able to have any evidence they find thrown out.

What to do if You are Pulled Over for A DUI in Illinois?

In this article, our Cook County traffic attorneys explain the rights of passengers in a traffic stop. The police are prohibited by the 4th Amendment from conducting a traffic stop without “specific and articulable facts” that give rise to a reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.  Violations of traffic laws or erratic driving can provide such reasonable suspicion so as to permit the police to pull you over without violating your 4th Amendment rights. If you are pulled over for a traffic stop, you must provide the police officer with your driver’s license, proof of insurance and registration if the officer requests it.  However, you are not required to answer any questions that the police officer asks you. A police officer may perform a search of your vehicle without a warrant if he or she has probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed.  However, absent probable cause, the police do not have the right to search your vehicle unless you consent to the search.

What Rights do I have if I am Arrested in Illinois?

In this episode, we explain your rights if you are arrested in Illinois, discuss the Illinois criminal process, and explain warrants, criminal charges, bonds in criminal cases, and stop and frisk laws. A warrant is a legal document that authorizes an officer to make an arrest, search a specific location, or carry out a specific action. An officer is authorized to stop an individual who he reasonably believes may have committed or will commit an offense. After the initial stop and frisk the officer may make an arrest if he has a reasonable belief that the individual has committed or will commit a crime.  Once taken into custody the officer must remind the individual of his or her rights.  When the arrest is made, an arrest card will be completed by the law enforcing authority.  An arrest card is a card that provides information about the defendant’s age, race, gender, and other information.  The officer has the option to release the individual, release the individual and request the state attorney to charge the individual, or formally charge the individual.  Once charged, the defendant has the right to know what charges are against him.
