A very able lawyer.
I am an international German businessman who was looking for a litigator in Waukesha County. I was referred to Attorney Schoenfeld through another international company where I had prior business relations. My company had sent $500,000 worth of product to a large manufacturing company in Wisconsin and after receipt of the product the company failed to pay for the product or return the product. I hired Attorney Schoenfeld to file a Complaint. Howard has a very direct, clear-cut, non-rubbish type of approach to business. I not only received a good upshot but I learned a few things from Howard on the art and craft of negotiating.
Howard was our attorney regarding a nasty dispute we had with our condo association. He was able to obtain a favorable resolution for us thanks to his outstanding legal knowledge and excellent communication skills. We were so pleased with his impeccable attention to detail and would not hesitate to work with him again.
I am a past client of Howards. I had a case where he defended me in a two-week trial. I remember after the trial was over one of the jury people came up to us in the parking lot. They asked Howard if it was “ok” to talk to him. He said since the case was over it would be fine. She told us that among the four lawyers in the trial she liked Howard the best because he “didn’t talk like a lawyer.” I have to agree, it was a lot of technical information that had to be conveyed and Howard did a great job explaining the information.
Howard is a straight forward attorney. He explained the litigation process and the approximate cost of taking my case to trial. As a small business owner I was not sure if I would be able to afford to pursue my claim. I was happy that he kept me updated on my case every week and his strategic thinking helped my case in the long run.
Howard was lead counsel when we as developers brought suit against the municipality for civil rights violations in federal court. We were awarded not only damages, but also our legal fees. Howard was easy to work with and very compelling and professional in presenting our case to the jury.
