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.

Our Elmhurst Paternity Lawyers Can Assist You With Child Custody Issues

In this video our Elmhurst paternity attorneys explain paternity law in Illinois. If there is a "presumed father," as defined by the Illinois Parentage Act, there is a higher standard of proof required to show that the "presumed father" is not actually the father of the child.  The "presumed father" is also entitled to certain notices, described below if the mother or a third party attempt to establish that someone other than the "presumed father" is the father of the child.

According to the Illinois Parentage Act, you are the "presumed father" of a child if any of the following is true:

  • You were married to the child's mother, in a civil union, or in a substantially similar relationship at the time of birth; 
  • You were in a marriage, civil union, or a substantially similar relationship that was terminated within 300 days prior to the child being born; 
  • You were in an invalid marriage or civil union at the time of birth or within 300 days prior to the time of birth, which was entered into in apparent compliance with the law;
  • You married the child's mother after the birth of the child and are listed as the child's father on the birth certificate.

Our Elmhurst Paternity Lawyers Can Assist You With Child Custody Issues

In this video our Elmhurst paternity attorneys explore questions involving paternity and whether it is required for child support payments. If, at the time of the child’s birth, the mother and father are unmarried, the paternity is not immediately assumed. This absolves the father of any immediate child support or other legal action until paternity has been established, either through the father’s voluntary acknowledgment of paternity or by testing.  Paternity can be established either voluntarily by consent of both parents or involuntarily through a petition to establish paternity
