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.

Why to Have an Attorney by Your Side When Selling Commercial Real Estate in Rockford

Issues can arise during the process of buying, selling, financing, or developing commercial property. Our Rockford commercial attorneys are here to make the process less intimidating and help you navigate it effectively.

Commercial real estate purchases also have many more laws and regulations than buying a home, all of which must be followed in order for the transaction to be valid.

Your attorney will review all the pertinent information and documents and consult with you regarding financing, construction, zoning and environment laws, title insurance, taxes, and any other questions or issues associated with land use and development.

Commercial Tenants Rights in Rockford

In this article, our Rockford commercial real estate attorneys discuss the charges that commercial tenants may be required to pay in addition to base rent. These may include a share of taxes, utilities and common maintenance charges.

The additional rent will change from year to year. If you believe your landlord is overcharging you, the best solution is to audit the landlord's expenses and verify that the common maintenance charges are being charged at market value, as opposed to an inflated price because of either a sweetheart deal or landlord embezzlement.

For this reason, it is in your best interest for your lease to include a clause that gives you the right to audit the landlords’ records. If your lease does not include this clause, then the landlord is not required to provide records.​
