The firm was established in 1976 in the Chicago Loop by Robert J. Adams. For over 30 years, the firm of Robert J. Adams & Associates has focused on helping homeowners and consumers with their financial problems. The firm’s knowledge and skill in bankruptcy and other consumer protections will be used to help individuals and small businesses get back on their feet. We have experience aiding people with foreclosures, repossessions, paycheck garnishments, collections suits, payday loans, parking tickets and license suspensions, and income tax problems. All four attorneys of the firm have worked here for over ten years. We recently expanded to have two offices in Lake County to serve the needs of people in the northern suburbs.
