About me

I truly enjoy criminal defense and family law practice, and the opportunity to help people that it provides. Often, clients come to me afraid and confused, facing some of the most difficult challenges they have ever seen. There is no greater personal or professional reward than helping someone move on and get back to living an enjoyable life. Whether it is helping someone avoid a criminal record by having a case dismissed, avoid prison or jail, defeat a restraining order/injunction petition, or settle a complicated family dispute, it is always great to know that someone's life is better because of my help.

  • Corey Geoff Mehlos

    As a fellow criminal defense attorney, I was immediately impressed with Attorney Ehrfurth from the first time I met him. He displays a remarkable knowledge of the law, is extremely personable, and has the even-keel personality that you need as a criminal defense attorney to negotiate successful resolutions with district attorneys (95 percent of cases settle so this is an incredibly valuable asset). If you have a criminal defense case, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Attorney Ehrfurth to discuss your case.

    Due to a scheduling conflict, Chris handled a stipulated reduction from a crime to a ticket...funny thing is, when i got the paperwork back, he somehow managed to get a better result for the client than I had negotiated. Just amazing!!
