About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

MORE THAN 45 YEARS EXPERIENCE - CHAPTER 7 AND 13 BANKRUPTCY. WE TREAT YOU WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT.

I have one granddaughter, age 7 and of course is the love of my life. She and my son and daughter-in-law live in San Francisco. I  visit her a few times every year and of course, we video chat a lot. of course I would rather she lived closer, but with modern technology, we can keep in touch.

 In addition to having practiced law for more than 45 years, I LOVE to ride a bike. The practice of law provides a living, but cycling is my passion. I  am a cycing coach with Visionquest Coaching Services. Visionquest provides training if one wants to improve as a cyclist, runner, swimmer or tri-athlete. ().

I currently coach 2 athletes. I usually ride 4 days a week, year in and year out. Of course, when the weather is bad, as a resident of the Chicago area, we are relegated to riding indoors. VQ has an indoor facility in Highland Park and Chicago where we can train on computerized trainers as well as listen to music, or watch tv or moives while we ride. I also try to go on one or two bike trips with my buddies each year, usually where there are mountains to climb.

Ms.
I am recommending Mr.Wrobel with all my heart. Having financial problems and facing a mount of debt made me sick. During such a trying experience as filling for a bankruptcy, Mr.Wrobel was like a light of hope. He treated me with respect, he understood all the difficulties and he advised for the best solution. He is an exceptional lawyer, his knowledge and expertise is amazing. If you ever are in this situation you will be happy to work with such a remarkable lawyer.

A Very Pleased Client
Mr. Wrobel handled my case with such excellence, detail, attention and dedication. There were many hours of research, emails during and after hours, careful consideration of what would be in my best interest, and just overall great counseling and advice. Mr. Wrobel walked me through the ENTIRE process, and assured me the days ahead would be brighter and that I would be in a better financial position after completing my bankruptcy. I would not have gone through the process with confidence if Mr. Wrobel had not prepared me the way he did. He went above and beyond to assist me, and the manner of professionalism was 5-Star Service.

Easy to work with
Joseph made the whole process super easy. It can be very embarrassing filing for Bankruptcy but he didn't make me feel any less. Whenever I had questions he was quick to respond in some sort of way. Super nice and very effective.

Competent, Caring & Committed to his Clients
From the first consultation call , to filing my Chapter 13, Joseph was always available, prompt to reply, thorough with his follow through, and patient with my many, many questions. Chapter 13 isn’t an easy process but Joseph made it as painless as possible. I can’t recommend his services enough.

Seamless process & ALWAYS AVAILABLE
When trying to consider if bankruptcy was really the best option for me, I was advised to contact Mr. Wroble. Prior to hiring Mr. Wroble, he walked me through all of the financial options I had available and advised on the pros and cons with each. I made a very informed and confident financial decision, and at no time felt pressured or swayed by Mr. Wrobel. Mr. Wrobel and his staff are straightforward, thorough, informative, supportive and highly communicative; I couldn't have imagined a more seamless process. If you are considering bankruptcy and need an attorney to help you make a decision, or get you through the process, Mr. Wrobel and his team are recommended!

Brilliant
Jo Wrobel is a genius and easily the most talented lawyer in the Chicagoland area. I had debt payments twice my monthly income. I called all the big-name law offices in the city, they all punted my case or told me solutions that ultimately wouldn't have resolved my problem. Some suggested Ch. 13 would be the only way--I would have STILL been unable to make the payments. A top lawyer told me that the only way to get a resolution would be to quit my job and file once I'm jobless (what!!???)! I was on the verge of giving up. Finally, I called Wrobel's office, and instantly I knew this was the guy! He has such a deep understanding of the law, works meticulously around the clock, and ultimately gets the job done. I got the Ch 7 discharge of my debts a couple months ago and can finally breathe--I'm actually saving money for once in my life. And on top of that, my credit score still in the 700s. Honestly, working with Wrobel's office was a major win for me. I highly recommend this attorney for your bankruptcy!

Excellent!
Joseph Wrobel is one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in Chicagoland. He's extremely knowledgeable and has 30+ years of experience in the bankruptcy field. He's very professional and personable. Took care of our somewhat complicated case. If you're having financial issues, Joseph Wrobel is the right attorney to hire.

Great experience with Joseph Wrobel!
I needed an urgent second opinion regarding an existing Chapter 13 case. I chose Mr. Wrobel based on the excellent reviews on this site and I’m glad I did. He is knowledgeable, efficient, trustworthy, direct, non-judgmental and compassionate. He put my mind at ease very quickly with his responses to my questions. My only regret is not choosing him from the start!

Mr. Wrobel makes a difficult situation very easy
I recently hired Joseph Wrobel to represent me in my Chapter 7 filing. He was super responsive and extremely knowledgeable. Joseph answered all of my questions, and most importantly he didn’t judge my past mistakes. With Joseph, it’s like having a partner who is looking out for your best interests. Joseph is extremely organized and I guarantee you he is worth it. If you are considering Chapter 7 or 13, you’ll be very satisfied if Joseph is on your side.

Business bankruptcy
We met Joe a year ago and he has been instrumental in allowing us to keep the doors of our business open. He helped us structure and implement a chapter 11 subchapter 5 bankruptcy for our business. Without this restructure, we would have lost what we spent 6 years building. He was always available to us to answer questions and explain things and while not a fun process to go through, he made it straightforward and understandable. I would highly recommend him.

"I endorse this lawyer. I started my bankruptcy career under Joe Wrobel. His knowledge of bankruptcy is outstanding and he stays on top of the law. He was courtesy and caring as an employer and he extended those same traits to his clients. He really cares about his clients and their problems. In fact there are numerous consumer bankruptcy lawyers that started out at the "University of Wrobel" to be properly trained, educated and given the opportunity to fly on their own. I also consider Joe a friend, he is extremely honest and forthright, always a pleasure to see and I know his clients feel the same way as they used to tell me how much they liked him when I worked there."
