Robert "Bobby" Buchanan
Principal Attorney


My foundation as a divorce attorney was built as a child. My father was a man of principles who taught me that integrity, humility, and compassion lie at the heart of every relationship. My mother gave me the gift of how to listen and practice genuine empathy. 

I have used these tools to hone my craft and build a firm that I’m truly proud of. Every day my goal is to deliver the best representation and service to people going through the toughest period of their lives.

My History


I grew up in a small town where we were encouraged to find our own path and leave a positive mark on the world. After high school, I took the unbeaten path and lived in Brazil, and travelled through Europe and South America during my twenties. I taught English and studied foreign languages. 

After graduating from The University of California, Berkeley, I moved to Chicago where I completed law school and became a licensed attorney. I then cut my teeth in the courtroom working for an accomplished criminal defense attorney. 

In 2015, I made the decision to open The Law Office of Robert B. Buchanan. Year-after-year, we have grown and developed into one of the premier divorce and custody practices in Illinois. Our recipe is simple: treat clients with respect, communicate and strategize as a team, and maintain our professional reputation as fierce advocates.
