Our Story


DebtStoppers founder, Rob Semrad, is a life-long Chicago resident and second-generation attorney. He graduated from DePaul Law in 1994 undecided about what area of law he wanted to practice. For Rob, his very first job out of law school – working in a personal bankruptcy practice, made that decision for him. Rob learned quickly that bankruptcy law gave him everything he wanted in a law career – the opportunity to do the most good for the greatest number of people.

Rob worked for that original firm for 7 years, before purchasing it in 2003. “The Semrad Law Firm” – branded “DebtStoppers,” went on to help thousands of families restructure and eliminate debt, save their homes and start fresh through bankruptcy debt relief. Today, The DebtStoppers Semrad Law Firm is a nationwide industry leader and Rob Semrad and his team are exploring new ways of the firm’s experience and creativity to Americans in financial distress.

For after nearly 20 years of practicing bankruptcy law, Rob still gets his greatest satisfaction representing families against the power and abusive practices of the credit industry.
