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 Defenses to Breach of Contract

In this article, our commercial litigation lawyers discuss the ways to potentially get out of a contract. When a contract is initially made it may seem that you may be bound to it. However, there are some special cases that would excuse you from performance under the contract. The defenses include material breach by the other party, anticipatory repudiation, duress, unconscionability, impracticability, undue influence, fraud, and mistake. There are also other considerations that are discussed in the article that will make a contract illegal or unenforceable. There are one-sided clauses and contract loopholes that may get you out of a contract in the eyes of a law.

Motions to Dismiss Explained

In this article, our Elmhurst commercial litigation attorneys explain motions to dismiss. The article begins by outlining the process of litigation. A Complaint is the very beginning of a case, and it outlines the allegations that would entitle the plaintiff to a claim against the defendant. A defendant, who the case is brought against, then has the choice to file an answer or a motion to dismiss. This article discusses two kinds of motions to dismiss: 2-615 and 2-619. The 2-615 motion attempts to dismiss the Complaint based on an improper statement of the cause of action. The 2-619 motion, on the other hand, attempts to dismiss the claim because there's an affirmative matter that will easily defeat the claim.
