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.

Defenses to Breach of Contract Claims

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.
