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.

Allocation of Parenting Time and Responsibility Explained

Our Downers Grove child custody attorneys want you to know what to expect in a child custody case.  In this article, we explain factors that Illinois courts use to make decisions regarding child custody.

In a child custody proceeding, the court will make its determination of custody issues based on the "best interest of the child."  The best interest of the child is determined on a case-by-case basis by weighing several factors listed in the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) as well as any other factors that the court finds relevant, including those that have been developed by case law.

Allocation of Parenting Time and Responsibility Explained

In this article, our Downers Grove custody lawyers describe the changes to Illinois child custody law that went into effect in 2016.  

As of 2016, courts do not enter custody orders in terms of a "custodial parent" and "non-custodial parent" or "visitation."  Instead, Illinois domestic relations courts allocate parenting time and responsibility.  Parenting responsibility can now be divided among the parents, with each parent having responsibility for different types of parenting decisions.  Our Downers Grove custody attorneys discuss the factors that courts consider in determining how to allocate parental time and responsibility in child custody cases.

New 2017 Illinois Child Support Guidelines

In this article, our Downers Grove child custody attorneys discuss the child support reform that occurred in Illinois in 2017 and explain the new “income shares” model for calculating Illinois child support.

Under this model the total amount of child support for which the parents are jointly responsible is determined based on economic tables that take into account a number of factors, including the combined income of the parents.  Each parent's individual responsibility for contributing to the couple's child support responsibility is based on the parents' relative incomes. We explore the new law and how it may affect you.
