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.

Collaborative Divorce, Cooperative Divorce, and Traditional Divorce in Illinois

Our Downers Grove Collaborative & Cooperative Divorce attorneys want to help you know the differences between the two and have written the following guide on the benefits and downsides of each type of divorce.

Collaborative Divorce and Cooperative Divorce have the potential to prevent in-court litigation of the issues that must be resolved in a divorce case, such as asset division, maintenance awards, allocation of parenting time and responsibility, and child support payments.  If successful, this will make your divorce significantly more cost-effective.  It will prevent the stress to everyone in the family that can arise from contentious litigation.  

‍Agreements reached out of court through the Collaborative Divorce or Cooperative Divorce process tend to be more comprehensive than those reached as a result of trial.  These agreements are also less likely to lead to post-divorce litigation between the parties.

Collaborative Divorces place greater incentives on the parties than Cooperative Divorces to settle their case out of court rather than allowing the process to fail and result in litigation. On the other hand, in a Cooperative Divorce, the original attorneys can continue to represent their clients.

‍Both Collaborative Divorce and Cooperative Divorce are highly dependent on the actual good faith of the parties.  Parties that feel that they cannot trust one another to negotiate and reveal information honestly are not good candidates for Collaborative Divorce or Cooperative Divorce.  Couples in which one spouse tends to emotionally dominate the other are also poor candidates for this process, as the adversarial process and the court in a traditional divorce tend to shield the best interests of one spouse from the other's emotional dominance.
