About Me

I established my firm in 1976 in the Chicago Loop.  For over 37 years, the firm of Robert J. Adams & Associates has focused on helping homeowners and consumers with their financial problems. The firm’s knowledge and skill in bankruptcy and other consumer protections will be used to help individuals and small businesses get back on their feet. We have experience aiding people with foreclosures, auto repossessions, paycheck garnishments, collections suits, payday loans, parking tickets, tollway violations, driver license suspensions, and income tax problems. All four attorneys of the firm have worked here for over ten years. We recently expanded to Gurnee in Lake County Illinois, to serve the needs of people in the northern suburbs.
