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.

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.

Very Responsive!
I'm so glad that I contacted Joseph for my bankruptcy. He's really helped me with this process. I've even had a couple of unexpected life changes during the process and he stepped in immediately to assist me... I'm extremely thankful for his help! I would recommend him to anyone.

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.

Look No Further
Bankruptcy is a complex and embarrassing reality. I was incredibly lucky to have been referred to Joe as he is incredibly knowledgeable on all the legal ins and outs while always treating me with complete, nonjudgmental dignity. That said, he is extremely personable, supportive and quick to respond to my seemingly endless emails. Due to his experience, I wasn’t his first rodeo, but Joe’s interest in my case was genuine; a trait I am sure he brings to all his clients. And as challenging as it was to go down this road, I would not have wanted to do it with anyone else. I came out the other side AOK thanks to his guidance, and would highly recommend him to anyone in need.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"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."
