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.

Using Revocable Living Trusts to Avoid Probate in Cook County, Illinois

In this article, our Cook County will lawyers explain how wills and trusts are used to distribute assets when you pass. Ensuring that the right people are in charge of distributing your assets according to your wishes is one of the key goals of a good estate plan. Both wills and trusts can ensure that your wishes are accomplished. Our Cook County trust attorneys explain the various situations in which using a revocable living trust as the primary vehicle of your estate plan may be preferable to a will.

Using Revocable Living Trusts to Avoid Probate in Cook County, Illinois

In this article, Cook County will and trust attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how we use revocable living trusts to avoid probate in Cook County. If you live in Cook County and you pass away owning any real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 outside of a trust, it is likely that a probate case will be required in order for your loved ones to get access to your assets.  We want to avoid probate because probate can be costly and time consuming, and because it takes a significant amount of time for your loved ones to receive their inheritance.  Our Cook County trust attorneys explain how we use trusts to ensure that probate will not be necessary when you pass.

Appointing Trustees and Executors

In this article, our Cook County trust attorneys explain the importance of appointing fiduciaries to oversee the administration of your estate when you pass.  Fiduciaries are the people responsible for ensuring that your estate is handled according to your wishes. If a trust is the primary vehicle of your estate plan you will name a trustee to administer the trust when you pass.  Executors are the fiduciaries named in wills to manage probate estates.
