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.

Further Reading from our Elmhurst Contract Attorneys

What Should I Expect When Hiring an Attorney to Review a Contract?

Our Elmhurst contract lawyers are here to protect your rights and ensure that you avoid a breach of contract litigation by reviewing your contracts. While having your contract reviewed by an attorney may seem expensive and overwhelming, it is actually a simple and cost-effective process. Having your contact reviewed will save you from having a poorly drafted contract that could cost you more money in the long run.

Step 1 – Opinion Letter:  When a client brings a contract to us for review, the first step is for us to prepare an opinion letter for the client.

‍Step 2 – Discussion with the Client: Once the opinion letter has been delivered to the client (usually by e-mail), we will have a brief phone discussion with the client to go over the important points in the letter and answer any questions the client may have.

Step 3 – Communicating Proposed Changes to the Other Party:  Once the client understands the opinion letter, the client will make a decision as to which of the recommended changes to the contract the client would like to pursue.

Step 4 – Review of the Revised Contract:  If the other party is responsible for revising the contract, the last step is for us to review the revisions that we proposed to ensure that the final contract reads correctly.

Our Elmhurst Contract Lawyers Explain Why Every Contract Should Have An Attorney Fee Clause

Our Elmhurst contract lawyers discuss the importance of including an attorney fee clause in every contract. If a contract dispute should arise, both parties will face attorney fees. However, if the contract has an attorney fee clause and one party can successfully pursue or defend a cause of action for breach of contract, then the losing party would then have to pay the winning party’s attorney fees. Attorney Fee Clauses are imperative for many reasons including encouraging a settlement and avoiding frivolous lawsuits.
