Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

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.

Kevin's firm handled setting up my will and trust recently. They took something that seemed intimidating and made it easy to understand. I've also referred a couple clients to Kevin - he's trustworthy, approachable and very fairly priced.

Collaborative Divorce Vs. Cooperative Divorce

In this article, our DuPage County mediation lawyers explain some additional alternative dispute resolution methods as alternatives to mediation: Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce. 

In a Collaborative Divorce, the parties agree to attempt to resolve issues outside of court, typically without a neutral third party mediator. Both parties' attorneys agree to withdraw representation from their clients should negotiations break down and litigation becomes necessary.

In a Cooperative Divorce, as in a Collaborative Divorce, the parties agree to attempt to resolve issues out of court. However, the parties' attorneys can continue to represent them in post-negotiation litigation.

Although both Collaborative Divorces and Cooperative Divorces typically begin without the assistance of a mediator, however, a mediator may be retained later in the process before resorting to litigation if the parties and their attorneys think that mediation may be beneficial.

In our article, our DuPage County mediation lawyers explain the pros and cons of Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce with respect to each other and to traditional divorce.
