| Hired Attorney
Realtor, managing broker and assistant treasurer
Mr. Kuehl workd with my association, Groveland Park Association, on updatng our bylaws and declarations which had not been adressed in at least 50 yeaars. He proved to be knowlegeable and offerd many recommendations to bring us up to par. He discovered liens aganist the association which we had no knowledge of and addressed each f these issues with us, and gave us guidence as to how to proceed in the furure. As a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Chicago, with over thirty years in the residendtial lixury market, I have worked with numerous attorneys. I highly reccomend Mr. Kuehl when it comes to resolving any issues concerning real estate. He is responsive and stays in touch. His guidence and insight for our association was invaluable.

Bob has a great deal of knowledge and experience that set him apart. He effectively handled a very complex matter that many other attorneys would have struggled with. In addition, Bob is exceptionally responsive and personable. I would hire him again and recommend him highly.

So helpful and kind
We had a phone consultation with Bob and I can’t begin to tell you how kind and helpful he was. He spent a significant amount of time with us discussing options and details. Highly recommended and we will absolutely be hiring him if we need to move forward.

Client
My experience has been overwhelmingly positive and productive. He always displays reasoned judgment, good decision making ability, a broad thinking scope and a very high level of professionalism. I feel very confident in his representation and advice, and have no reservations about recommending his services to others. Additionally, he is always prompt, returns calls in a timely manner and communicates well.

Above & Beyond
Robert is the most flexible attorney I have ever worked with. He will work to your schedule even after normal business hours or on weekends. He also pays great attention to all the details and potential possibilities. He is a hard working lawyer. Hire him, you won't regret it.

Genuine and Approachable!
Bob is professional, open-minded, and compassionate. I contacted him about an issue I had with a company who owed me money, and he provided me with sound advice and a multitude of options during the initial consultation. We have exchanged several email and phone conversations since then at no charge. Bob practices law with integrity and looks after his client's best interest. I would be comfortable hiring his firm if I needed legal representation for my case.

Best Lawyer Ever !
Mr. Kuehl made me feel as if I was his only client. Had a bad deal where all the issues weren't presented at the time of sale, and sell did not want to take item back. Bob negotiated for me the return and getting me my money back. I thought was back was against the wall and I couldn't do anything but Bob made it happen. Thanks again .

When I needed legal advice
Attorney Kuehl promptly responded when I reached out to him for legal advice. My problem was the apparent excessive cost for work by a contractor at my home. His referral to the Better Business Bureau was the help I needed! I My experience with Attorney Kuehl was excellent!

Review for Robert T Kuehl
Mr. Kuehl provided excellent services. He researched my issues thoroughly and provided all appropriate alternative actions available to me. In my opinion, he went beyond what was expected to ensure that I fully understood the consequences of any action I chose to pursue. His advice was vary good and was definitely based on what was in my best interest

Top Notch Attorney, no one better then Mr Robert Kuehl
It was very hard for me to find a Attorney that I trusted, My case had already been ongoing for many years, my faith in the legal system was gone. It wasn't until I met with Mr Robert (Bob) Kuehl that everything changed, He listened to everything I had to say. By the time we were done with our two hour phone call I new this was the right person to take over my case, Mr Kuehl wasn't just Knowledgeable about the law He was passionate about his work, He kept me updated on every detail to make sure I was ok with everything that was taking place, I can't tell you how much that meant to me, Mr Kuehl is a Top Notch Attorney. He was able to get a case closed that had been ongoing for over 6 years settled and closed in under 5 weeks with a good outcome. If you need a honest, hardworking, Knowledgeable Attorney that would be Mr Robert Kuehl

Knowledgeable, pragmatic, and kind
I had reached out to Bob to seek his counsel on a situation with a contractor we had hired, involving a small claims dispute as well as an act of defamation. Despite the fact that our conversation went well over the assigned time, Bob patiently listened to us and offered astute counsel that was both wise and pragmatic. His handle on the law and its application was very evident right from the beginning of our conversation. While it is our hope that our situation can be resolved equitably, I will not hesitate to reach out to Bob should the need arise. His 5 star rating is well deserved.

Expert & Empathic
Robert is an expert attorney that not only shows results, but is empathic along the way. Hard to find this combination in a lawyer. In hiring Robert for legal needs, he exemplifies what representation should be at all times. He is keen on extreme details, and never lets you down, putting clients first. I highly recommend Robert for Legal needs.

Response from Robert Kuehl September 10, 2020
Appreciate very much this client, and the wonderful review. Just wanted to mention that, pursuant to Illinois Rule of Professional Conduct 7.4, a lawyer is generally prohibited from using the term "expert" to describe his qualifications.

Consultation
I was assigned Mr. Kuehl through the Illinois State Bar Association for a consultation and he offered me a lot of clarity for my situation. I felt like I was left with some practical options to handle myself appropriately in my case, and feel prepared to take the next steps if needed. He was very generous with his time and easy to speak with. It was comforting to speak with someone so personable while the situation I’m in has caused me great anxiety. Speaking with him, it felt as though he had really taken the time to look over the documents he asked for in advance, which already gave me a sense of security, knowing someone cared about what I’m going through. I am very grateful for this service since I am a low income college student and needed some incite quickly.
