The firm was founded in 1979 as a professional
partnership and later incorporated as an Illinois
professional corporation. It now has offices in Scottsdale,
Arizona and Naperville, Illinois. The firm has a
never-ending commitment to provide superior service and to
take the time to fully understand the specific needs and
goals of each client. Unlike larger, less flexible firms,
the Law Offices of Robert D. Gillen, Ltd. is able to quickly
and professionally respond to each client with personalized
one-on-one service with the attorney who will be handling
your legal matter from start to finish.
This type of exceptional service is the standard that
other firms strive to obtain. It is not uncommon that the
firm represents two or three generations of the same family
as each generation comes to expect the same straightforward
advice and solutions to their asset protection, estate and
business planning needs.
Along with serving our clients, our firm also has a
commitment to serving the charitable needs of the community
and encourages active involvement with worthwhile
The principal of the firm, Robert D. Gillen, or, more
familiarly, Bob, is a highly sought-after national and
international speaker, instructor and presenter on asset
protection planning and estate and gift tax matters. In
addition to maintaining two law offices, Bob still manages
to lecture or teach about once a month and to serve on
several charitable boards.
One of the boards is Naperville Rotary Charities, Inc., a
501(c)(3) charity which he created in 1992 and has been
chairman of the Board of Directors since its inception. This
charity now has a multi-million dollar balance to assist
with domestic and international charitable work. Bob also
sits on the Board of Directors of an Arizona-based charity
that is instrumental in bringing classical music to students
and seniors, sponsoring performers from around the world.
Bob allocates some of his professional time to help others
who are not quite as fortunate and to assist them with their
estate planning needs. He sometimes marvels on how these
families truly appreciate his legal advice which would
otherwise have been outside of their reach.
