What's In A Name?
"When Arthur Andersen and Andersen Consulting parted ways, Andersen Consulting had to
come up with a new name. They ended up soliciting ideas from their employees, who
submitted almost 2,700 suggestions, including the one they settled on."
There are a number of reasons
to choose Wilson & Associates as
the law firm for you or your referrals. Here are just a few:
1. Our legal
credentials are solid. Both Jeff and Maureen have worked
at large downtown firms for a number of years. Jeff is a 1987 graduate
of Northwestern University School of Law; Maureen is a 1991graduate of
Loyola University School of Law.
2. We understand business. Both Jeff and Maureen have undergraduate
degrees in business administration - Jeff from the University
of Illinois and
Maureen from Loyola University. Maureen also has an MBA from Loyola.
Both have represented a large number of businesses, from small firms
to large multinational corporations. Additionally, Maureen has worked
in a large telecommunications company and a small benefits consulting
3. We return phone calls. Since Jeff started this firm in 1995, we
have made a policy of returning client phone calls within 3 business
If we’re out of the office for a half-day or more, the firm’s
voicemail will generally note when we’ll return and whether we’ll

not receptionists, secretaries, and paralegals. When you call Jeff,
you get Jeff on the line, not a paralegal or a receptionist. In
a receptionist is available.
5. We have a convenient suburban location. Our office is located
near the intersection of the Northwest Tollway (I-90) and Route
6. Our rates are reasonable. We use flat fee rates on many of
our services. Additionally, our hourly rates are significantly
than most downtown
firms and many suburban attorneys. We don’t charge for a reasonable
amount of travel time to points within the northwest suburbs or to and
from the Loop. We charge only half the regular hourly rate for travel
to places other than within the Northwest suburbs or to and from the
7. We don’t believe in nickel-and-diming. Unlike many law firms,
we don’t assess a per-page charge on faxes. We simply pass along
any long-distance charges and taxes accrued. We don’t make a profit
center out of other out-of-pocket costs like many firms do.
