Biographical and Professional Information

Shindler is the founder of Abogados America, a small law firm in Chicago specializing in representing the Hispanic community.

In his book, Hot Dogs & Hamburgers, Shindler chronicles his journey to help his son overcome a major reading deficiency through volunteering at Literacy Chicago. There, he learned firsthand how ridiculous the common misconceptions are about learning disabilities and adult illiteracy. The assortment of students he taught were ambitious people who were eloquent, driven, clever, and so funny they made him laugh out loud. Here, Rob shares his students' pain and humiliations, frustrations and hopes.

Hot Dogs & Hamburgers demonstrates that literacy issues reside in all neighborhoods and that its victims are committed to finding dignity and life's possibilities through learning to read. Rob's hope is that his book will bring an awareness of adult low literacy and slow that judging process down.
