Contacted Mr. Doerfler to simply ask a question. He is the first of several attorneys I have contacted in the past to EVER return contact without the promise of the almighty dollar. Researched my question, promptly returned contact with sound advice.
I started out with several false allegations including two felonies and several other misdemeanors. I had a very kind lawyer starting but soon realized that being kind was not going to cut it. Not only that but I could never reach her and felt as though my case was being left on the desk.
Chris was recommended to me by the WI State Bar. I first contacted him when seeking representation for a civil suit resulting from false allegations that I was currently fighting. I soon learned that Chris was not just another "money hungry" big city lawyer..I began hours of research before calling him and soon decided to give him a call. He sat down with me at no cost and was straight forward with the seriousness of the alleged charges. What started out to be just a consultation about a possible civil suit turned into a substitute of counsel of Chris for my previous lawyer in my criminal case as well.
I am a VERY demanding client, especially in the situation I was in and Chris kept me 100% informed and took every last one of my concerns into careful consideration. I went from having a lawyer whom I could not contact for the life of me, to having a wonderful lawyer who would respond to my e-mails within minutes every-time!
I myself had lost hope of my dream to become a lawyer due to my false allegations and Chris turned that around for me. Not only did he use his aggressive and highly intellectual style to get my false allegations dismissed, but also has taught me a lot about my future career path. I feel as though I not only have began to get my life back but have also made a friend and mentor as well. We have a long path ahead with my civil suit an, but I have deep faith in Chris helping me to achieve the best possible result for my future.
Before you lose hope....call Chris!
We met Chris and had the opportunity to benefit from from his services several years ago, and he has remained both a friend and our attorney ever since. Chris is a caring person and took control of our case with not only excellent knowledge and professionalism, but with honest care and concern for us personally as well as our situation. When we first met Chris, my husband had a serious problem that could have had a horrible outcome. Chris kept my husband's spirits up and kept me, the wife, totally informed of every step of the way. No matter how serious the situation seemed, Chris met each challenge with confidence and the knowledge to bring our case to a perfect outcome. We highly recommend Chris. We don't know how to sing his praises high enough! We hope that we never have to go through the situation we did, but should something similar ever arise again, or we need an attorney for any reason again, Chris will be the first person we call on. Sometimes trying to find an attorney can be difficult as they all say the same things on initial meetings because they want your business. When you meet Chris for the first time, you will immediately see the difference between Chris and all of the others and you will know you don't need to look any further, Chris is the attorney you need to get the job done.
Chris came into a messy, hopeless looking situation in a long drawn out lawsuit and turned it around for us. He stopped us from getting run over in court and stood up for us in a way no previous lawyer had done. My past experience with lawyers had not been the most positive, with most of them just wanting to make a deal at my expense. Chris wasn't afraid togo to court and fight for us. We now are getting to open our business back up and that is thanks to him. He always returned our calls and e-mails and kept us informed all a long the way. I have been told to never trust a lawyer, but I trust this one. I would send anyone his way that needed a top notch lawyer on their side.
we have yet to conclude my case, however, I have confidence in Mr. Doerfler and I trust him. He's always a step ahead of the other side.
