Top 3 Qualities to look for in Your Attorney

Watch Our Video

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.

Avoiding Probate in McHenry County With Revocable Living Trusts

In this article, our McHenry County trust lawyers explain the benefits of using revocable living trusts to avoid probate. One of the primary benefits of a proper estate plan is the avoidance of a probate case when you pass away.  Probate is a court case that is required to distribute your assets if you pass away owning any real estate outside of a trust or more than $100,000.00 outside of a trust or payable on death account.  Probate can drain significant assets from your estate, and is likely to delay the distribution of your assets to your loved ones for at least a year.  Using a revocable living trust as the primary vehicle of your estate plan makes probate unnecessary and allows your trustee to pass your assets to your loved ones immediately and without the need to pay attorney fees and court costs.

Trustees, Executors, and Powers of Attorney Explained

In this article, our McHenry county trust attorneys explain the appointment of fiduciaries in your estate plan. Ensuring that people you trust to manage your estate are in charge of executing your wishes when you pass is a major benefit of having an estate plan. A trustee is the person that you name to administer your trust.  An executor is a person named in your will to manage your probate estate. A healthcare agent and a financial agent are people that you name in your healthcare and financial powers of attorney to manage major life decisions for you if you become mentally incompetent.
