My ex-husband took out a temporary restraining order on my boyfriend for child abuse against my son. I had numerous legal battles against my ex in the past, but this was by far the lowest he had ever gone. It felt like a nightmare and we had no clue where to go from there. I talked to numerous attorneys that really didn't seem very knowledgeable, or were busy the day of the hearing (because the hearing is set soon afterwards). I just happened to be searching online and found his law firm in Waukesha. I called and they put me through to Chris right away. I explained the whole story to him late on a Friday afternoon and he said he would speak to his partners about our case and call me back. He called me back later that night, which was such a relief, because we had thought we had no one to turn to at that point and we didn't have to go into a whole weekend hopeless. Lucky for us, he had actually tried and won restraining order cases in the past, which are very hard to win...it honestly felt like they would just give a restraining order to anyone.
Chris had a lot of knowledge about the court that the hearing was taking place in, and explained the whole process to us. He explained to us what he needed from us to help him with the case and we finally had a direction to go in. Even when Chris was in court, and we needed to get something done, one of the partners at his firm would step in and help us out. When the court date came, we were all fully prepared and had a very strong case. Chris didn't forget any important details during the hearing and was a very effective trial attorney (these hearings are like mini trials).
The restraining order was dismissed, and our nightmare was finally over. If we wouldn't have won, I don't know what we would have done. My ex husband would have been able to continue to control my life and actually control who I dated. In addition, my boyfriend was completely innocent. Having that kind of restraining order against him would have ruined his life, both in our relationship, and his reputation.
If you need an attorney for anything related to family or criminal law, you are in good hands with Chris and actually have a fighting chance. I couldn't ever thank him enough. No amount of money could repay him for giving us our lives back, and preventing my ex from trying to take my son away from me.

Chrisopher was extremely attentive, easy to work with, knowlgeable and professonal. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal services. I had neer been in legal trouble in my entire life. I made some very poor and foolish decisons and found myself at 46 yrs old being arrested for criminal activity. Chris was able to successfully litigate and reduce the severity and terms of a restraining order against me . He was also a part of the legal team that fought for me and was amazingly able to work with the D.A. in getting my charge reduced from a posisble felony to a disorderly conduct misdemeanor. He was relentless in his communications with all involved in my case. He was very knowledgable about the laws and statutes. I was so ashamed of myself for what I had done. Chris was compassionate enough to give me hope that I could get through this hard time, do what I had to do, and see beyond the shame. I have nothing but good things to say about Chris and the part he has played in my positive future.

Chris took a case that many thought had a low probability of success. His hard work on my case ended with a phenomenal result. If you want an attorney that will treat your case with the importance it deserves, hire Chris!

Christopher Ehrfurth was fantastic. He is credible, professional, and is a articulate defense attorney. He made a convincing case both written and oral that had the judge agreeing also. We were extremely satisfied with the outcome. He pays attention to detail, recalls facts and circumstances with attention, and returns calls promptly. He understands the elements of the case very quickly. I would go to him again without question.
