Top 3 Qualities to Look for in Your Attorney

Cost-Effective

When we started our firm in the midst of the recession, we learned to survive in a lean environment and pass the savings on to our clients.  As the economy has improved, we have not changed our philosophy.  We are hungry to grow our client base, and so we have intentionally set our rates below what the market will bear.  Our mission is to make each client walk away feeling that they got more value than they paid for.  This is easier to do when we make our prices affordable.

Client-Focused

The secret to our success as a firm is incredibly simple: we build a personal relationship with each of our clients and treat them with the respect that they deserve.  We pride ourselves on our open lines of communication, frequent check-ins with our clients, and our accessibility.  We are here to help you in any way we can, often leveraging our network of resources to assist you with non-legal issues that you may be having.  We are your one-stop problem-solver and trusted adviser.  All attorneys say that they provide excellent client service, but, unlike other attorneys, we practice what we preach.  We make sure every client walks away happy . . . period.

Comprehensive

We are your community law firm.  Our business is built on long-term relationships with our clients.  Our clients have the luxury of building trust over time with one team of attorneys, rather than having to find a new attorney for each different type of matter that arises over the course of their lives.  No one attorney can be an expert at everything.  That is why we have worked hard to assemble a team of attorneys with extensive experience in different areas of expertise.  Our attorneys work together closely to bring our collective experience to bear on any issue that may arise for our clients.

Great at What We Do

Since our business comes entirely from referrals and community involvement, our reputation for quality legal work is our greatest asset . . . and it is extremely important to us.  Each of our attorneys is truly experienced in his or her practice areas, with the highest personal standards of excellence.  We are proud of our reputation in the community, and we did not achieve it by accident.  Our reputation for excellence comes from hard work, continuing education, and an above-and-beyond approach to our clients’ cases.

How Illinois Law Affects Paternity

In this article, our Elmhurst child custody mediation attorneys discuss the process of mediation and why it is important not only for people seeking to resolve their domestic issues in a cost-effective manner, but also to lead to more lasting solutions without litigation. While attorneys may not need to be involved during a third-party mediation, it is important to have an attorney present to understand your rights and protect your interests. This becomes especially important when you feel there is unequal power in the relationship. Our mediation attorneys have your best interest at heart and will be your advocate in mediation decisions related to family, child custody, child support, or divorce.

How Illinois Law Affects Paternity

In this article, our Elmhurst family mediation attorneys discuss ways to establish paternity in Illinois. We also discuss the concept of a "presumed father," which impacts the burden of proof in paternity cases. A person may be the presumed father if the following are true:

  • He is married to the mother or in a substantially similar relationship before the child was born
  • He was married to the mother but the marriage was terminated within 300 days prior to the child being born
  • The child was born within 300 days of an invalid marriage, which he had entered with apparent compliance with the law; or
  • He is listed on the birth certificate as well as was married at the time of birth of the child.

We explain the use of DNA testing to determine the father.  If a party refuses to have a DNA test, the Court will likely rule against them.  Finally, we explain how to establish paternity by mutual agreement at birth.

Illinois Uncontested Divorces

In this video, our Elmhurst family mediation attorneys explain how an uncontested divorce is simply a divorce in which the parties agree on all of the issues surrounding the divorce without the need for extensive negotiation or litigation.  The parties to an uncontested divorce will freely exchange information without discovery or depositions.  The parties will work together to draft and execute a marital settlement agreement that will resolve issues of: spousal maintenance, child support, division of assets, and division of liabilities and debts.
