About Us

Nothing is as stressful as being in debt and unable to get out.

Rob Semrad, Senior Partner

Who We Are

The Semrad Law Firm is a nationally licensed debt relief agency — a bankruptcy law firm offering legal relief to American families struggling with debt. By using the bankruptcy laws created by congress to give debt-burdened Americans a legal fresh start, our firm — popularly known as DebtStoppers, has legally eliminated debt and stopped foreclosure, repossession and wage garnishment for more than 25,000 Illinois, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Nevada and California residents. Our firm is one of the nation’s leading consumer bankruptcy filers.

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. “Robert J. Semrad and Associates,” – 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.
