My name is Adriana Cross, and I am the owner of A Cross Law Firm PLLC, a full-service law firm based out of Chicago, Illinois. What sets me apart from other lawyers and firms is my drive and sacrifice i've been making for client's long before i became a lawyer.

I obtained my law degree, my master's in business adminstration, and my bachelor's in psychology before age 27. I started my law firm 100% virtually in 2020 during the peak of covid. I've done hundreds of bankruptcies during my career thus far. I've learned the impact family consideration, debt, law suits, foreclosures, social security, alimony, child support, student loans, divorce and retirement can ultimately have on your financial outlook. When i look at a problem, case or issue, i don't look at it from a singular point of view. I look at it holistically. I take advantage of my diverse background, and I do that during each bankruptcy case. 

In 2012 i served as a paid volunteer (resource coordinator) for the Americorp Justice Corps program, i assisted people with their uncontested divorce filings, while serving as a mentor to college students who were part time volunteers in the program. Part of the program's experience was living at a poverty wage of $18,000 a year in chicago, Illinois....seeing that i grew up in a high risk area of Saint Louis, Missouri, and I was raised below the poverty line, POVERTY and the struggles that come with it is something i was already well aquainted with throughout my life. However, it was during this experience that I realize several important lessons that I will share:

1) Debt isn't bad, lack of knowledge on how debt works and how money works is bad.

 

2) Bankruptcy isn't bad, it is a tool. Its a tool that society pushes as a shameful or embarrassing act. It is neither, it is a tool intelligently employed by the most successful individuals and businesses in the world, and when employed correctly and in a timely way with the correct financial management knowledge base at hand....can also turn you from a person who drowns in debt, into a person who intelligently restructures your debt so you can set yourself and your loved ones up for a lifetime of financial success. 

 

3) Use what you have or don't have to create the opportunities that you want so you can live the life you want to live. 

 

(also, don't believe the hype that student debt isn't dischargable in bankruptcy) It can be. The idea that it never is, is another reason i got into bankruptcy to begin with...don't let a lack of knowledge prevent you from financial success in the future.
