Attorney Robert H. Farley, Jr.

Securing services for children and adults with disabilities can be one of the most challenging experiences family members and guardians face as they care for their loved ones. Effective advocacy is critical as they work to maximizie the benefit of public services and entitlements, and protect their assets.

Attorney Robert H. Farley, Jr. has provided legal representation to individuals with disabilities and their families for over twenty years in support of their rights, entitlements to adult and children's services, special education, the development of customized estate plans and special needs trusts, guardianship, and public benefits.

Mr. Farley was the lead attorney in the precedent-setting Seventh Circuit Appeal that that gave developmentally disabled persons the right to sue the State of Illinois under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to receive services in the least restrictive setting or community.

He is also the recipient of the Arc of Illinois' President's Award for Outstanding Legal Advocacy on Behalf of People with Developmental Disabilities, and the Award for Extraordinary Dedication & Tireless Work for Quality Life Choices for All People with Disabilities from Advocates United.
