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 Joliet Commercial Litigation Attorneys

Using Motions to Dismiss to Quickly Dispose of Business Litigation

In this article, our Joliet commercial litigation lawyers explain how motions to dismiss can be used to dispose of unmeritorious business lawsuits. The first step in initiating business litigation is to file a complaint that states facts leading to a cause of action that would entitle the plaintiff to damages. If the defendant can show that the complaint fails to state facts leading to a cause of action or if there is another affirmative matter that would cause the case to be dismissed without a trial, the court will grant the motion to dismiss, potentially terminating the litigation in the early stages.

The Business Judgement for Corporate Officers

In this article, our Joliet commercial litigation attorneys explain the Business Judgment Rule for corporate officer and director liability in Illinois. When it comes to shareholder derivative lawsuits for breach of fiduciary duty, the Business Judgment Rule provides an important defense to Illinois corporate officers, providing a legal basis on which to dismiss such suits at the pleading stage.  It is wise for all corporate officers and directors to familiarize themselves with this rule, its exceptions, and its application. The Business Judgment Rule, also referred to as the Business Judgment Presumption, is a case law-derived doctrine in corporate law that creates a defense against personal liability for corporate officers, directors, managers, and other agents of a corporation. According to the business judgment rule, corporate agents cannot be held personally liable for actions that they take in the ordinary course of business if they are using their best business judgment and acting in good faith. It is a standard of judicial review of corporate director conduct; it is not a standard of conduct in itself.
