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.

Motions To Dismiss in DuPage County

In this article, our DuPage contract litigation attorneys explain some common defenses to breach of contract claims. These include:

Material breach: If the other party materially breached the contract, you will no longer be bound to uphold your end of the contract.

Anticipatory repudiation: If the other party says or does something to make you reasonably believe he or she will not honor the contract, this is a defense to your own breach of the contract.

Duress: Contracts are invalid if one party was forced to sign the contract under physical or economic duress.

Some other common defenses include a mutual mistake, fraud, undue influence and impracticability of performance.

Motions To Dismiss in DuPage County

In this article, our DuPage County breach of contract lawyers further explain how motions to dismiss work in contract litigation.

A contract litigation case is initiated by filing a complaint with the DuPage County circuit court. If the complaint fails to state allegations that would amount to a cause of action for breach of contract, it can be dismissed with a motion to dismiss under Illinois Supreme Court Rule 215. If there is some other fact that would defeat the complaint, other than simply a disagreement with the allegations stated in the complaint, the complaint may be dismissed with a Rule 2-619 motion to dismiss.

If the order dismissing the complaint states that the complaint is dismissed without prejudice, the plaintiff is given the opportunity to correct any problems with the complaint and refile it. If the complaint is dismissed without prejudice, the case is over and the defendant's only option is to appeal the order dismissing the complaint.

Who is Responsible for Attorney Fees in DuPage County Breach of Contract Cases?

In this article, our DuPage County contract dispute attorneys explain attorney fee clauses in contracts.

The general rule in contract litigation is that each side is responsible for his or her own attorney fees and court costs, even if he or she wins the case. However, most contracts that are drafted by an attorney contain an enforcement clause, which provides that if there is a legal dispute over the contract, the loser will be responsible for reimbursing the winner for his or her reasonable attorney fees and court costs.

Our DuPage County breach of contract attorneys recommend including enforcement clauses in your contracts for two reasons.  First, if the losing party has to pay the attorney fees of the winning party, this tends to deter frivolous litigation. Second, enforcement clauses make it economically feasible to enforce your rights under a contract even if your other damages are not astronomical.
