"You make house calls?" Why It Is Important That Your Attorney Treats You As More Than Another Client

Illinois Bicycle Law Attorney Mike Keating
A Chicago bicyclist called me last week after he was injured in a crash. He was badly injured and had just gotten home from the hospital. I told him that it was no problem for me to come meet with him in person. His response was, "You make house calls?"

I never thought of it in those exact terms before but, yes, we do make house calls. To me (not just as a lawyer but as a bicyclist) I know how it feels in the days after a bike crash. You are shaken up, in pain, and worried about the days in front of you. The last thing you need is to have to travel down to a law firm. That is why we have always "made house calls" and met with our clients at their home, at work, or wherever is convenient for them. We are also always available to meet in the evening or on weekends if necessary. We are here for you.

In an age where personal injury attorneys advertise on TV and on highway billboards, it is easy for someone to fear that they would be "just a number" or "just another client." Our commitment to the Illinois bicycle community is that we are ready to assist any bicyclist injured anywhere in Illinois at anytime. This can mean anything from offering some helpful advice to complex litigation. But we will do whatever is best for each client. And that always includes "making house calls" when necessary.

Initial consultations are 100% free and with zero obligation. In fact, there are zero attorney's fees unless we make a recovery for you in your case.
