Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

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.

Legal Options for Illinois Breach of Contract

In Illinois, a breach of contract lawyer resolves cases where one party fails to fulfill their contractual obligations. This failure can take various forms, such as not delivering promised goods or services, failing to make payments, or breaching confidentiality agreements. Businesses experiencing financial harm due to contract breaches need a proficient contract breach law firm to navigate legal complexities.

Resolving Contract Disputes and Remedies

Resolving breach of contract cases may involve litigation or out-of-court settlements, including mediation or arbitration. The remedies sought can vary: monetary compensation for financial loss, renegotiation of contract terms, or specific agreements tailored to the dispute. Illinois law allows for different types of damages in these cases, such as compensatory for financial losses, punitive for wrongful acts, and liquidated damages as per the contract terms.

Types of Contract Breaches and Resolutions

Contract breaches are categorized based on their severity and impact. Minor breaches might not warrant legal action, while material breaches significantly affecting the contract's essence do. Anticipatory breaches occur when a party explicitly indicates they won't fulfill their obligations, and bad faith breaches involve deceitful practices. Resolutions include compensatory, punitive, nominal, or liquidated damages, and in rare cases, specific performance or cancellation and restitution. The chosen resolution depends on the breach type, the contract's specifics, and the parties' willingness to negotiate.

Further Reading from our Illinois Breach of Contract Attorneys

Motions To Dismiss in Contract Litigation

In this article, our Illinois contract litigation attorneys discuss how a lawsuit in Illinois begins when a plaintiff files a complaint which states what has occurred to entitle the plaintiff relief from the court.

The complaint details the relevant allegations in the case that could entitle the plaintiff to a claim against the defendant, and after the complaint has been filed, the defendant can either file an Answer or a Motion to Dismiss. An answer admits or denies the allegations of the plaintiff and raises any affirmative defenses that would defeat the plaintiff's claims. Our Illinois breach of contract and contract dispute attorneys cover what happens when the defendant files a motion to dismiss.
