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.

Landlord Tenant Law for Downers Grove Explained

In this article, our Downers Grove landlord-tenant attorneys explain tenant law in Illinois.

The article discusses the landlord's warranty of habitability, which requires a landlord to keep the property maintained in conditions that are livable.  If the landlord breached this implied warranty of habitability, the tenant can remedy the situation in several potential ways, including, suing for damages, terminating the lease, or reducing rent.  

We also talk about how landlords cannot evict tenants without good cause and what qualifies as "good cause" in Downers Grove, and how tenants have exclusive rights to possession of the apartment during the term of their lease.

Have Your Lease Reviewed by a Downers Grove Attorney

In this article, our Downers Grove lease attorneys explain the process of having your lease reviewed or drafted by one of our attorneys.  

In reviewing your lease, we first prepare a short bullet point opinion letter explaining what you should be aware of any items of your lease you may want to renegotiate.  Next, after discussing our opinion letter with you, we will work with you to determine what clauses and terms in your lease you would like revised.  At this point, you can either offer our opinion letter to the other party and indicate which revisions you are requesting or have our Downers Grove lease attorneys draft the revisions directly into your lease and provide a new, revised lease to the other party.  Then, the revised lease will be reviewed by the other party.  The attorneys for each tenant and landlord will work with each other and their clients to determine a lease that is agreeable to all parties involved.
