Our success stories


I have known Richard for a number of years. Mr. Sexner is an astute attorney with tremendous integrity in all of his work. We were on the wrong side of a very unfair and unreasonable company. Mr. Sexner was able to force them to agree to great terms. I would highly recommend him.

“Tremendous Integrity”

R Kreisman


Mr. Sexner handled everything professionally and confidentially. He did not make us feel uncomfortable about our situation. Matters were handled with a minimum of fuss and disruption to our everyday life.

You brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy that you have accomplished this for me. From the bottom of my heart — I say “Thank you very much.” I had prayed to God that he would send someone to me that would ease the pain and suffering that I had gone thru.

Thank you so much for your caring counsel and assistance. It was absolutely invaluable and I wouldn't hesitate to call on you again - though I hope I never have to!

I didn't know what to expect when I began the process. What I found was a totally upfront attorney, who told me exactly what I needed to do, where to go to accomplish my assigned tasks, and what documents I needed to supply. This step-by-step guidance was ideal for me, as I am in the early stages of vascular dementia. He helped me cope with the entire procedure with the least amount of stress. I highly recommend him for your consideration.

“Highly recommend him”



Richard Sexner is discreet, direct, and completely effective. I had never been through a legal proceeding in my life and was terrified that the process would be costly, emotionally draining and take way too much time. In reality, my case was handled quickly with everything resolved exactly as he said it would be. I hope that I never have to go to court again, but if I do, I'm calling Richard Sexner.

“Discrete, Direct, and Completely Effective”

Thank you so, so much for helping me through one of the scariest things ever. You were really good at handling my anxiety and doubts, and you were right when you assured me that everything would work out for the best. That really helped.

Attorney Richard E. Sexner will work on your case personally.

Richard E. Sexner is a published author on bankruptcy law, honors graduate of Northwestern University, the former Chairman of the DuPage County Bar Association Bankruptcy Committee and holds a license to practice before our nation’s highest court, the Supreme Court of the United States.

We have filed thousands of cases. We know bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy is a unique field in the practice of law. It is not done in the state courts; it is under jurisdiction of the Federal Government.  The Federal Courts have their own procedures and hearings. Experience in the state courts will not prepare a lawyer for practicing bankruptcy law.  We have been doing this for decades.

To make the practice of bankruptcy law even more complicated, each judge and trustee has their own interpretation of the law.  That can make a big difference in your case. Bankruptcy laws are changing all the time. A filing mistake can have consequences that are very serious. We know what we are doing.

We know the process can be confusing to one who is unfamiliar with what it takes to file bankruptcy.  Most people who file for bankruptcy never do it again.  You will want it done once, only once, and done right. Our attention to the field of debt relief enables us to help you get the help you need, as efficiently and effectively as possible.  We have been filing bankruptcies in the Northwest Suburbs since 1994. We have filed thousands of cases right here in Northern Illinois.

You can feel confident that we will find the best way to help you.  Contact us now for a free consultation. 

You can afford our fees.

We understand that you are in a very difficult situation. We will try to make it as easy as possible for you. We can be retained for just $95. At that point you can tell all of your creditors that you have a lawyer and they have to leave you alone. If they have any problems they can call us.

Once we know about your case we can give a flat fee in almost all cases. We will try to work out a payment plan for you based on your needs and ability to pay. Contact us now for a free consultation and find out what we can do for you.

We have a Money Back Guarantee.

We guarantee that if you are a first time filler that the court will accept your filing so you can get the protection of the automatic stay. The “automatic stay” is an extremely powerful too granted by the bankruptcy laws. The “automatic stay” is what gives you protection from your creditors. If your creditors violate the “automatic stay” by trying to collect from you, garnish your wages or harass in any way then we may be able to sue them for sanctions. If there is a problem with the filing that is under our control then we will refund 100% of your retainer.

We are open evenings and Sundays, for your convenience.

We know that you are busy. We try to make filing bankruptcy easier for you by having meetings on Sundays and in the evenings.
