Robert D. Ahlgren is the founding shareholder of the Law Office of Robert D. Ahlgren and Associates, focusing on immigration law, since 1973. He worked as a staff attorney for the Legal Aid Bureau / Neighborhood Legal Services in Chicago, Illinois, from 1968 to 1973. As a Legal Aid lawyer, he launched himself into many areas of practice. He worked in the usual areas of consumer fraud, bankruptcy, wage abuses, domestic relations, and landlord/tenant issues from both sides. Much of what he and fellow Legal Aid lawyers did was rigorous, pioneering work, basic education, and fundamental organizing. During his time working at Neighborhood Legal Services in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, he taught a seminar at Chicago-Kent College of Law (now part of the Illinois Institute of Technology). Mr. Ahlgren appeared on WCIU TV Channel 26 (broadcast in Chicago, Illinois; Gary, Indiana; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin) for 23 years as the attorney who answered live call-in questions on a weekly Spanish- language public service program called “Ayuda.” The principal objective of this legal component of the show was to inform the public of their legal rights.
Mr. Ahlgren was a member of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA)’s Section Council on Immigration and International Law from 1983 to 1990, serving as Chair from 1988 to 1989. Through the years, Mr. Ahlgren has presented at ISBA Mid-year Meetings, the ISBA part of the World Trade Law and Ed Series, ISBA Solo and Small Firm COnferences, and other ISBA meetings.
