He is especially recognized for his excellence in "number-crunching" in producing creative, aggressive solutions to the wide array of financial problems that his clients bring before him.

Above and Beyond
I hired Mr. Weishaar for a routine Chapter 7 Bankruptcy 1 year ago. The bankruptcy was painless and after the matter was concluded Mr. Weishaar still returned my calls and even helped my 17 year old son with a criminal summons.

Excellent Attorney!!!!
I was working with an attorney who on several occasions failed to return my calls or e-mails. His lack of response forced me to find new counsel. I googled attorneys in my area and Michael Weishaar was one that appeared in my search. He responded to my online request almost immediately, gave me honest answers and scenarios of all possible outcomes. I was ready to hire him on the initial phone consultation. We scheduled an office consultation and basically got everything accomplished in 1 meeting. Very knowledgeable, very informative and very down to earth! He got the job done!! Would highly recommend Michael Weishaar!!
