Schaller began his legal career as a law clerk to the Honorable Judge Nicholas J. Bua, of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Robert then began the private practice of law at the Chicago law firms of Winston & Strawn and later at Chapman and Cutler involving complex bankruptcy litigation.

Schaller earned the Bankruptcy Scholar certificate from the National Bankruptcy Academy. Plus, Schaller is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute, National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys, Illinois State Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, and the DuPage County Bar Association.
