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.

Guaranteed Maximum Price Construction Contracts

In this video, our Tinley Park construction attorneys explain guaranteed maximum price contracts in construction, including allowances, contingencies, schedules of values, and change orders in GMP contracts. In a guaranteed maximum price contract, the contractor will charge the owner the cost of the labor and materials plus a percentage of that cost for profit. The total cost to the owner may be less than the guaranteed maximum price, but it will not exceed it. Unlike a lump sum contract wherein a contractor is paid a flat fee for the work, the guaranteed maximum price contract allows the owner to potentially save money if the project ends up costing less than estimated.

Mechanics Liens Explained

In this article, our Tinley Park construction dispute attorneys explain the purpose of Mechanic Liens are to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials. Mechanics Liens are available to subcontractors on public construction projects as well as private projects. Mechanics Liens on public projects are governed by 770 ILCS 60/23. While a lien on private property is placed on the real estate itself, a lien on a public project is placed on the amounts due to the general contractor from the governmental organization in question. Mechanics Liens are not available to general contractors on public projects. A series of steps must be followed by the holder of a Mechanics Lien by strict deadlines in order to prevent the holder from losing his or her lien rights. This is called "perfecting"a Mechanics Lien. In addition to the recording and enforcement deadlines required of general contractors, subcontractors are required to send additional notices in order to perfect their Mechanics Liens.
