Contacting us, asking questions, or requesting a consultation doesn't make us your attorney—only a signed legal services agreement does so. If you're experiencing an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

Attuned Legal, LLC provides open-minded legal advice and drafting services in Illinois microbusiness and property matters. We also offer limited-scope representation in select microbusiness and property disputes within the jurisdiction of the Circuit Court of Cook County’s First Municipal District (Daley Center), Second Municipal District (Skokie Courthouse), Chancery Division (Daley Center) and Law Division (Daley Center).

All matters start with a 50-minute phone or video consultation ($125). Our online intake process allows you to view our current availability and select an appointment that works for you. We hold the appointment time you’ve selected without requiring a deposit while we use the details you provide on the intake form to confirm whether we can assist you.

After we review the information you give us on the intake form, we email you to advise if we can proceed with the proposed consultation. When we’re able to help, we include the Engagement Agreement for the consultation and a link for you to provide online payment in advance of the appointment. If we aren’t able to assist you, we email you to let you know and release the time slot you reserved. No payment is due until we’ve completed our conflicts check and verified that we can help you.

For everyone’s protection, we require a signed Engagement Agreement from all clients before providing any services, including initial consultations. Our Engagement Agreement spells out key firm policies and clarifies the services to be provided. Unless you’re covered by a legal insurance plan we’re currently participating in, we also must receive the consultation fee via our online payment processor before the phone or video consultation takes place.

We guide self-represented people in microbusiness and property matters who want help with case strategy, document preparation, and understanding Illinois trial-level civil procedure. We also provide behind-the-scenes help with crafting and evaluating settlement options that are negotiated directly by our clients.

Our DIY clients book paid 50-minute phone or video consultations ($125) as needed or register for online legal coaching packages (starting at $600) to provide ongoing support during motion or discovery practice. During the initial consultation, we can also assess the extent of legal activities a non-attorney client might undertake on behalf of a particular business.

We help innovative Illinois-based companies and arts organizations that have fewer than ten employees with contracts, agreements, and compliance matters. As a small Illinois LLC ourselves, our team knows what it’s like to jump through legal hurdles that feel designed for bigger or more formal enterprises.

Our set fees for drafting and negotiation services start at $900 and depend on the length and complexity of the matter as well as deadlines. Microbusiness clients are also welcome to use our DIY Civil Legal Support services. Examples of our recent projects include:
