About me

Lynch became interested in debt relief and bankruptcy before he went to
Law School. John was employed at Eastern Airlines in Miami, Florida,
which at that time was the second largest airline in the US. Eastern
Airlines filed for bankruptcy in 1990 and by 1991 it had closed its
doors. John knew so many people that could not find work, had cars
repossessed and faced mounting debt. Then, in 1992 Hurricane Andrew hit
South Florida and Pan Am airlines also closed its doors. By that time
John was a Paralegal and owner of a Title Company. He worked as a
bankruptcy Paralegal throughout law school. Right after his graduation
from Nova Southeastern Law School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida he made
the decision to relocate to Illinois.

John began working at a Real Estate law firm in the Western Suburbs
just as he was admitted to the Illinois Bar in 1999. His interest in
debt relief continued in  Illinois  and he began representation in
bankruptcy cases along with foreclosure defense and real estate
closings. After five years at the firm, John started his own practice
specializing in bankruptcy.


As the bankruptcy laws began to change, John found it both
challenging and interesting. Through his participation in the National
Bankruptcy Institute and the American Bankruptcy Institute he studied
the new laws and the resulting effects on his clients. As other lawyers
were getting out of bankruptcy practice, John was doing the opposite
and becoming familiar with the new laws and the affect they would have
on clients.  John is an active member of both the Illinois Bar
Association and the DuPage County Bar Association. He strives to bring
the best available information to his practice.


John J. Lynch is an experienced bankruptcy attorney that can be
relied upon  to provide informative counsel to his clients. He makes
certain that he has an understanding of not only specific aspects of
the bankruptcy laws but of the procedures in the Northern District of
Illinois. John knows that by focusing his practice specifically in the
area of bankruptcy, he can be most effective and reliable.

  • James Baird Cavenagh

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Lynch is one of the few bankruptcy attorneys that is not running his office as a "bankruptcy mill." He takes the time to speak with each of his clients personally. If he cannot assist someone with bankruptcy, then he reviews the situation and will refer that person to a professional with the appropriate expertise to provide options and potential solutions. He is always updating his knowledge of the law and I often consult with him on issues that I feel I may not have sufficient experience or knowledge. Mr. Lynch is a credit to the profession.
