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.

Supplemental Needs Trusts Explained

Our friendly DuPage County special needs attorneys can work with you and your family to establish a Supplemental Needs Trust, also known as a Special Needs Trust, to allow you or a disabled loved one to accumulate assets, own property, earn an income, and receive gifts and inheritances without reducing or jeopardizing his or her government benefits. 

If you or a family member is receiving government benefits based on a disability, you are probably aware that there are limits to a number of assets you can own as well as to the amount of monthly income you can receive without reducing your benefits.  

However, this does not mean that you need to live below the poverty line in order to continue to receive government benefits.  A Special Needs Trust can allow you or your loved ones to maintain a decent standard of living without reducing your benefits.
