Smith - Oak Brook, Illinois CALL ME FOR A FREE TELEPHONE CONFERENCE AT (630) 415-8705 TO DISCUSS WHAT SERVICES CAN BE PROVIDED AND THE FEE FOR SAID LEGAL SERVICES. WHEN YOU CALL MY OFFICE YOU TALK TO ME (NOT A PARALEGAL OR SOMEONE JUST OUT OF LAW SCHOOL) AND WHEN YOU GO TO COURT I AM THERE WITH YOU - NOT ANOTHER ATTORNEY (POSSIBLY SOMEONE JUST OUT OF LAW SCHOOL WITH LITTLE OR NO EXPERIENCE). My area of concentration is family law - It is better to be a master of one area of law than "a jack of all trades and a master of none". I live and breathe family law. Isn't it better to have an attorney who only does one area of law than an attorney who tries to handle many areas of law and excels in none? In order to keep abreast of all legal issues and the ever changing laws and court cases I am a member of the American Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, DuPage County Bar Association and Kane County Bar Association. In Illinois the minimum number of hours of continuing legal education that an attorney has to complete every two years is 30 hours - an average of 15 hours per year. It is in my client's best interest that I keep abreast of the ever changing laws and technology and therefore I have completed the following hours of continuing legal education: 2013 - 45.50 hours 2014 - 54.25 hours 2015 - 75.75 hours 2016 - 11.50 hours 2017 - 30.25 hours 2018 - 6.00 hours ALSO - PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL - SOME ATTORNEYS ADVERTISE THAT THEY HAVE MANY YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE - THAT MEANS THAT ALL OF THE ATTORNEYS COMBINED EXPERIENCE IN ALL AREAS OF LAW BUT THE ATTORNEY WHO GOES TO COURT WITH YOU AND WHOM YOU ARE RELYING UPON MANY ONLY HAVE SIX (6) MONTHS OF EXPERIENCE OR LESS IN FAMILY LAW. WHEN YOU HIRE MY FIRM - I AM THE ONE WHO APPEARS IN COURT WITH YOU AND YOU HAVE THE BENEFIT OF MY 37 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN FAMILY LAW. Know your legal rights and obligations - Experience counts - Let me represent you and get you what you are legally entitled to.

I try to charge a very fair and reasonable fee for the work that is performed and you may find some attorneys who are not that familiar with the law and may take a copy of a form and type in certain variables and call it a completed document or not really devote sufficient time to your case.
