The Importance of Being Able to Communicate with Your Attorney

Coming into contact with the legal system can be very scary – especially for a person whose first language is not English or who may not be familiar with the laws in the U.S.  That’s why it is so important to have an attorney who, although educated in the United States, is able to communicate in one’s native language.  At Aldrich & Siedlarz Law, P.C. we are very fortunate to have an attorney who speaks fluent polish.  Our polish speaking attorney, Marlene Siedlarz, is a first generation American who is connected to her Polish roots and active in the Polish community.  Whether your case is in DuPage, Will or Cook County, having a Polish speaking attorney is an advantage. The ability and ease of communicating with your attorney in your native language streamlines what can be an otherwise difficult process and helps you feel at ease.  Because of our polish speaking attorney’s ability to communicate in polish with her polish-speaking clients, we are able to work with clients who often feel uncomfortable because English in not their first language. 

2016 is bringing with it many important changes to the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act.  We have been highlighting some of those changes in our previous blogs.  These important changes can be difficult to understand and confusing - especially to our clients who are used to the now "old" terminology of, for example "joint" and "sole" custody - that doesn't exist anymore.  But that's why we are here.  If you have any questions regarding any of the new changes, call us.  We will be more than happy to go over those changes with you.  Our polish speaking lawyer will also be happy to address concerns with our polish speaking clients either over the phone or in our office in Lombard, DuPage County.  We are also available for meetings in Will county.
