Moments into my initial consultation with Rob, it was clear that I had made the right choice. Rob’s extensive legal knowledge and many years of courtroom experience were just what I needed to fight a bogus charge that never even should have been filed. In short order, Rob was able to put my mind at ease and assure me that my case would never go to trial. Throughout this ordeal, Rob believed in my innocence and fought hard to get this charge dismissed, which he was able to do after only three weeks of representing me. If you want an attorney who possesses wide-ranging legal acumen, the highest ethics and tremendous human-relations skills, better call Rob!

Robert was very caring and took the time to explain the situation, and was very attentive to my needs and concerns. I hope to never need him again, but if I do he'll be the first I call.

I've never been in any real legal trouble in my life, so when I ran into this problem I was extremely worried and nervous. I had also never been arrested or in jail. I spent a night in jail for admission even though my B.A.L. registered 0.0. I was worried about how jobs would react and if my future employment opportunities would be jeopardized.
Worry set in worse when I realized this was going to cost money that I just did not have and had no way of coming up with in time. After much contemplation and research, I was appointed a lawyer by legal aid, who turned out to be Mr. Schnatmeier. I was still very nervous because I thought my admission meant automatic guilt and not even the best lawyer could change that.
I was very wrong. When Mr. Schnatmeier took my case he informed me he knew what he was doing and he works just as hard whether the client has been appointed or is paying for his services. This eased my concern and he was absolutely honest in all of his statements. After that first meeting in court, he got the roadside video and all other necessary information for my case and began working.
Mr. Schnatmeier only needed a few months to find out the roadside investigation had compromised my amendment rights. Soon after, he was able to get me a plea deal that would mean no license suspension. On the actual day of my sentencing I expected to spend the day day in jail, but Mr. Schnatmeier surprised me after the hearing and told me I didn't have to go back to jail at all, for which I was extremely grateful.
Not only was he punctual in court, but whenever I would call with a question he would respond the same day. Even when his assistant informed me he had other cases and may be running late the days I had court, he was there in time. He even called me from his direct line to answer questions for me.
I was appointed Mr. Schnatmeier through help from legal aid, but the service I received from Mr. Schnatmeier was better than anything money could afford. He informed me my license wouldn't be suspended and it wasn't. He also informed me of how to get my license back after the case was closed. I would recommend Mr. Schnatmeier to anyone who needs legal assistance ten times out of ten. He knows the legal system well and is very responsive. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.

Mr. Schnatmeier provided outstanding criminal defense for a difficult DUI charge.
Despite the fact that I tested over twice the legal limit and was in possession of an open container, Mr. Schnatmeier comprehensively navigated the legal system over a period of 1.5 years and uncovered legitimate and ethical challenges to the state's case resulting in a reduced charge.
Individual circumstances and outcomes may vary, but thank God for Mr. Schnatmeier.

Rob Schnatmeier was fantastic to work with. He actually did everything he said he would do during our first meeting. He stayed in communication with me throughout the process and I never worried that things were falling through the cracks. I would highly recommend hiring him to help you with your legal matters. Very knowledgable and very trustworthy!

Rob was great in handling my case! He was honest and straightforward. Rob based his compensation according to the amount of work he anticipated. He could have easily taken advantage of my vulnerable situation and charged me an arm and a leg, but he didn't! He was extremely confident and delivered the best result possible. I would definitely recommend him to family or friends.

Mr. Schnatmeier pretty much gave me a new life. My case was very touchy and probably didn't have much of a success rate. I had been dealing with it since I was an 18 yr old in high school. Without going into too much detail I was forced to be on a registry for the rest of my life. I came to Rob for help in 2009 and he informed me this was new ground for him, but he would do his best and make sure I got the best legal help I could get. My first case was failure to register, a 10 yr sentence, that the court dismissed due to what I would call a great legal defense. Going into the courtroom with facts and knowledge of other cases helped me beat my case. Next was to get off the registry, because I didn't deserve to be on it in the first place. It seemed like it took forever. I was losing hope and faith. But after years of frustration from the legal systems and courts, we finally prevailed. I can't begin to image all the work that went into my certain case but it paid off. I told myself no amount of money or time would ever stop me from chasing this dream to be a free man with a new life, and thanks to Mr. Schnatmeier and his paralegal, I now have that new life.

Rob was great from day one. He looked out for my best outcome on every level. His paralegal Elaine was also extremely helpful. Both kept me going in so many ways for roughly 6 yrs. Rob was highly ethical on every action with my case. I would highly recommend Rob and Elaine. They are two people who really care. I can't say enough good things about these two people!

Mr. Schnatmeier had my DUI reduced to reckless driving in record time – 6 weeks!!! When meeting with him, he listened, understood what was important to me, provided me with realistic expectations, and went straight to work. I cannot praise or thank him enough for the excellent job he did.
