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.

Common Causes of Action in Trust Litigation: Tortious Interference With the Expectancy of an Inheritance

In this article, our DuPage County trust dispute lawyers explain two common causes of actions in trust litigation.  

Tortious interference with an expectancy of inheritance is a cause of action claiming that the defendant committed a tortious or illegal act, such as fraud, that wrongly deprived the plaintiff of an expected inheritance.  Fraudulent inducement is very similar. In a fraudulent inducement cause of action, the plaintiff is claiming that the defendant made a false statement that caused the deceased individual to distribute his or her assets differently than he or she otherwise would have, damaging the plaintiff.

Common Causes of Action in Trust Disputes: Undue Influence

In this article, our DuPage County trust litigation attorneys explain undue influence, a common cause of action in trust disputes.

Undue influence can cause a trust to be invalidated when the trustee had his or her will overpowered by the wrongful act of another in the execution of the trust.  We explain when the existence of a fiduciary duty gives rise to a presumption that undue influence occurred in the execution of a trust, in what situations a fiduciary duty automatically exists, and the factors that courts consider in determining whether a fiduciary duty exists if the duty is not automatic.  Finally we discuss how undue influence can be proven in the absence of a fiduciary relationship.

No-Contest Clauses in Illinois Trusts

In this article our DuPage trust dispute lawyers explain no-contest clauses in Illinois trusts and wills.  

A no-contest clause is a clause in a trust or will that states that if any beneficiary of the trust or will challenges the trust or will, they will be disinherited from any benefit they otherwise would have received under the trust or will. No contest clauses cannot actually prevent a trust dispute.  They can only provide a disincentive to individuals who are already set to inherit under the trust from disputing the trust in order to inherit more. Illinois case law is divided on the enforceablility of no-contest clauses.  Some courts will not enforce no-contest clauses in trusts if the contest was filed in "good faith."
