Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

The Attorney Review Process for Contracts

In this article, our DuPage County contract attorneys explain the process of having your contract reviewed by an attorney.

Typically, having your contract reviewed by an attorney is a simple and affordable process that can save you significant money in the long run by protecting your rights and avoiding a breach of contract litigation that is much more likely to occur if your contract is ambiguous or poorly drafted. Our DuPage contract lawyers will first provide you with an opinion letter explaining issues of which you should be aware, and points you may want to negotiate.  We will then go through these items with you in person or by phone to determine whether you would like us to make revisions, or if you would simply like to provide our suggested revisions to the other party to the contract.

Important Clauses for Employers to Include in Employment Agreements and Independent Contractor Agreements

In this article, our DuPage County contract attorneys explain some of the key clauses that employers should include in employment agreements and independent contractor agreements.

Non-compete clauses should be narrowly tailored to protect the employer's legitimate employment interests.  Non-solicitation clauses can prevent employees and contractors from soliciting a business' clients or employees after termination of employment.  These can be broader in geographic scope and duration than non-compete clauses. Trade secrets clauses protect the business' confidential business information. Non-disparagement clauses prevent former employees and contractors from damaging the reputation of the business after they are terminated.

Why Should I have an Attorney Fee Clause in My Contract?

In this article, our DuPage contract lawyers explain why every contract should have an attorney fee clause.  

Unless an attorney fee clause is included in your contract, each side will bear its own costs in enforcing the contract if one party breaches.  Providing in the contract that the loser in any contract litigation will be responsible for the other side's attorney fees serves two purposes.  First, attorney fee clauses discourage frivolous litigation. Second, attorney fee clauses make meritorious litigation economically feasible.  Many legitimate breach of contract cases do not make economic sense to pursue unless your attorney fees can be recovered as damages.
