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.

The Chapter 13 Repayment Process

Our Tinley Park chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney Kevin O'Flaherty sits down to explain the process of chapter 13 bankruptcy. Once our experienced attorneys decide Chapter 13 is the right plan for you and your financial needs, we then have our clients take a credit counseling course with certification of completion before filing. From there attorneys will be able to collect your financial information and scheduling that includes: assets, liabilities, income, and expenses. These will then be submitted to the court who will notify any creditors you owe money to of the bankruptcy. Collections from these creditors will be put on pause while our Tinley Park attorneys help you come up with a payment plan that satisfies your needs and income. A Trustee, or court appointed attorney, will be a part of the process as well collecting the payments for creditors.

The Chapter 13 Repayment Process

In this video, our Tinley Park chapter 13 bankruptcy attorneys break down the repayment processes of chapter 13 bankruptcy. In a chapter 13 bankruptcy you have to determine how much of your income is distributed throughout a 3-5 year period that is paid to your trustee or the court appointed attorney that looks over your case. The trustee then gives and distributes these payments to your creditors you are in debt to. Different creditors can result in different types of payment plans that vary from how much you pay a month, to how much is distributed to each creditor. These types of creditors are: priority, secured, and unsecured creditors. Our Elmhurst attorney goes on to explain each type of creditor in full to give insight to which one may be right for you!

Chapter 13 vs. Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

In this video, our Elmhurst chapter 13 bankruptcy attorneys explain the differences and advantages to each type of bankruptcy a client could file and how it is possible to keep your home and vehicles in a chapter 7 bankruptcy. All of your debts in Chapter 7 are dischargeable. If your home or car has over or above exemption amounts then the trustee can collect that to pay the creditors, but most times clients have under the exemption amount and are able to keep their belongings with the help of our advising at O'Flaherty Law. Our Elmhurst attorney goes on to explain how Chapter 7 usually makes the most sense for wiping out your debt. Your future income is used to pay your debt in Chapter 13 instead of liquidation. It usually takes 3-5 years to pay off this debt. Unless there are certain situations, Chapter 7 is more beneficial unless you are ineligible. Ineligibility can be due to things Such as if you have a high income, or have already filed for Chapter 7 in the past ten years, instead Chapter 13 may be right for you. Chapter 13 may be suitable for people who have a lot of equity in their home or car as well to avoid them being taken in a Chapter 7 case.
