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.

Modification of Residential Real Estate Contracts in Lake in the Hills

Selling and buying homes is a generally standardized process and the contracts used are similar, but there are modifications that you can make to ensure that all of your needs are contractually protected. Your realtor can customize that the contract to fit your specific needs. The contract will typically provide that each party's attorney will have 5 business days to

  1. approve the contract;
  2. reject the contract; or
  3. negotiate modifications to the contract.  

A good attorney will be sure to staunchly protect his client's interests while, at the same time, working to achieve a meeting of the minds between the parties so as to prevent the deal from falling through. Our Wheaton real estate contract attorneys ensure the best service when it comes to modification of contracts.

  • What is Ancillary Probate? 
  • When is Ancillary Probate Required?
  • What is the Process if Probate is Required in Multiple States?
  • How Do I Simplify or Reduce Costs for Ancillary Probate in Illinois?

What Happens When Minors Inherit Property in Lake in the Hills

In the absence of a will or trust, the decedent’s estate will go through probate. The probate court will appoint a guardian of the minor child’s estate.  This person will be responsible for managing the inherited assets of the minor until the minor reaches age 18, at which point the remaining assets will be paid out to the child. The guardian of the estate will have the duty to preserve as much of the inheritance as possible for distribution to the child when the child reaches the age of majority.  

This can occur under various circumstances including: 

  • Decedent dies intestate (without a will or trust)
  • Decedent has a will in place, but not a trust
  • Decedent has a trust in place
