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.

Factors Lake in the Hills Courts Consider When Determining Child Custody Issues

Our Lake in the Hills child custody attorneys discuss the recent reforms that have occurred to Illinois child custody laws.  These changes attempt to limit disputes and move the language of the laws closer to modern understanding.  Shared parental responsibility now falls into four main categories including medical, non-curricular, religious, and educational and are dictated by court order or the parents.  Terms including “visitation” and “non-custodial parent”  are no longer used and have been replaced with "allocation of shared parenting time and responsibility”.  This gives parenting time to each without calling either “custodial”or “non custodial.”

Marital Settlement Agreements Explained

Our Lake in the Hills custody attorneys discuss marriage settlements, their creation and how they're implemented.   Marriage Settlement Agreements are used during a divorce to resolve various issues regarding divorce including:

  • Custody
  • Support
  • Asset division
  • Spousal maintenance

These are common issues that are attempted to be resolved with these settlements.  The courts may accept these agreements,  but can reject what they deem “unconscionable” in their opinion to guarantee the interests of the child are met.  We explain these agreements and how to update or change them even once a divorce is finalized.  ​
