He continues to work with our financial planner in maintaining our estate plan.{para}Bob also assisted with the formation of an Illinois LLC for my consulting practice, continues to advise as required, and serves as its Registered Agent.

    Bob Ross is a trustworthy counsel who helped us to set up a clearly written, yet comprehensive, estate plan and will for our family. He is very accessible and responsive to questions. There is no more dedicated lawyer that I have encountered in any setting. I would recommend his services to any of my friends or family who needs an advisor for a will, trust, or business.

    I've worked with Bob Ross professionally and have also know him personally for over ten years. Bob distinguishes his personal life and professional services by his brilliance, strong ethics, sincerity and commitment to clients. Bob is a trusted advisor and truly puts the clients best interest ahead of his own. Although I know Bob for his real estate work, I understand that he is equally talented in the areas of estate planning, business and corporate law.
