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.

Further Reading from our Will County Family Mediation Attorneys

Will County Family Mediation Explained

In this article, our Will County family mediators explain the family mediation process in Illinois.  Family mediation is the use of a trained neutral third party to facilitate negotiations regarding regarding child custody, child support, maintenance, and asset division in divorce.  

We discuss the benefits of mediation.  Resolving issues early in the process through mediation can save both parties significant amounts of money that would otherwise be spent on litigation.  Parenting plans resolved through family mediation tend to be more comprehensive and better tailored to the needs of the parties than those decided by litigation. They are also less likely to be re-litigated after the court's order has been entered. 

Our Will County divorce mediators explain the role of the mediator, the attorneys, and neutral experienceds in the mediation process.  We discuss the rules regarding privileged and confidential discussions during the process as well as exceptions to these rules.  

We also describe the Will County family mediation process in detail including how to interview potential mediators, how to prepare for mediation with your attorney, the initial joint meeting with the mediator, individual caucuses between the mediators and each of the parties, and the mediator's drafting of a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the resolution of all issues in the case.

Collaborative Divorce and Cooperative Divorce As Alternatives to Mediation

In this article, our Will County family mediation attorneys explain other alternative dispute resolution methods: Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce. 

In both a Collaborative Law Divorce and a Cooperative Divorce, the parties to a divorce agree to negotiate issues surrounding their divorce outside of court and to freely exchange information.  Typically in both a Collaborative Law Divorce and Cooperative Divorce, the parties will negotiate directly through their attorneys without the assistance of a neutral third party mediator.  

A Collaborative Law Divorce differs from a Cooperative Divorce in that, in a Collaborative Law Divorce, the attorneys for both parties agree that they will withdraw from representation of their clients should negotiations fail and litigation become necessary.  This tends to make the negotiation process more likely to be successful, but it can create an additional expense of hiring new attorneys if the negotiation process is unsuccessful.
