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.

The 8 Goals of a Good Illinois Estate Plan

In this article, our Downers Grove Medicaid planning attorneys explain how to plan for long-term care in Illinois.  

Long-term care can be incredibly costly.  Many people rely on Medicaid benefits to cover the cost of long-term care.  However, in order to be eligible for Medicaid, you must have already "spent down" the majority of your own assets.  Our Downers Grove elder law attorneys explain how to use life estate deeds and irrevocable trusts to keep your most important assets in your family while becoming eligible for Medicaid.  We explain the 5-year look back period prior to filing for Medicaid during which transfers are scrutinized and may result in a delay in your eligibility for Medicaid benefits.

Allowable Transfers Within the Medicaid 5-Year Look Back Period

In this article, our Downers Grove elder law attorneys explain how to use a Living Will to provide for end of life instruction.

In general, providing for end of life instruction takes the burden of medical decisions off of your loved ones in the event you are unable to make medical decisions on your own behalf. If you wish to complete a Living Will, you will be able to have agency in your end of life medical decisions.
