Amazing lawyer Expert Honest
It was my first time dealing with a legal issue and was lucky enough to find Robert. As an attorney Robert is very knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. He was patient with explaining every detail. He always gave his legal advice in a sincere and honest manner. Robert helped guide me through the case step by step and was always on top of everything. Throughout the case he showed he was a person of integrity and cared about the best interests of his client. He made me feel confident in a time of vulnerability. I was so impressed with him and his work ethic. He is an exemplary attorney I would recommend.

Response from Robert Kuehl May 1, 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.

Expert and Compassionate Lawyer
Hired Mr. Kuehl for litigation on a defmation matter. Robert's expertise, deep experience and most importantly, compassion was excellent. I had a falsly accused claim that was completely defeated and defended. (Rightfully and truthfully so) It is not often that you come across counsel that posesses both the sheer expertise (both strategic and tactically) along with faith based leadership that provides a client with representation that doesnt feel like a client and lawyer relationship. Robert provided the truth, facts and expert legal understand for us to naviagte and defeat an uncessecary case and claim. I would highly recomment Robert for any and all legal needs (I hope one wouldnt need one, but if you do) Excellent Lawyer, person and family man.

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!

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.
