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.

Lack of Testamentary Capacity in DuPage County Will Contests

In this article, our DuPage County will dispute lawyers explain lack of testamentary capacity as a cause of action in will contest cases.

Lack of testamentary capacity is an argument used when contesting the validity of a will. In order for a will to be valid, the person who created the will must have had the mental capacity to understand the consequences of executing the will. If an interested party can prove that the testator did not have the mental capacity to execute a will at the time the will was executed, the will may be invalidated by the probate court.

Check out the full article by our DuPage County will contest attorneys explaining lack of testamentary capacity as a cause of action in DuPage County will contests.

Fromal Proof of Will Hearings vs. Will Contests

In this article, our DuPage County will dispute lawyers explain the differences between formal proof of will hearings and will contests.  

A formal proof of will hearing is a proceeding in which an interested party requires the executor of a probate case to prove that the will was properly executed through the testimony of the witnesses. The inquiry in a formal proof of will hearing is limited to facts surrounding the execution of the will and the evidence is limited to the testimony of the witnesses to the will. A will contest, on the other hand, has a broader range of causes of action and types of proof that may be presented to the court. Often, heirs or legatees who are challenging a will will first file a formal proof of will hearing and then file a will contest if the formal proof of will hearing is not successful.

To learn more, check out the full article by our DuPage County will dispute attorneys comparing and contrasting will contests and formal proof of will hearings.
