I became a client of Charles through a referral from an old Bankruptcy case client ! I'm serious, when I say, that this man exemplifies what I always thought Lawyers SHOULD be...subsequently, I too, began sending him referrals, and have never had a single client that wasn't fully satisfied with his representation. Here's some of the reasons why...1. He actually answers his phone, and if not, calls you back, almost immediately, (within the same work day, but usually within an hour or so). 2. He actually responds to emails. 3. His work ethic is astounding...(his average workday ends well after 9:00 p.m.) 4. His office staff is courteous and quick to respond to your questions. 5. He is very strict in what he requires of you as the client, but he get's RESULTS for you...In short, he's just a GOOD Lawyer ! I say it this way..."He's the stuff, without the fluff" ! I've never heard anyone question his fees...because you don't mind paying when you get good results !

Recommended to all friends/family
Mr. Stohlman was very professional and timely with all communication while handling my case. He quickly responded to all of my calls and emails answering all questions and concerns I had. He even met with me for a sit down meeting to review papers with little notice to him just to make sure I felt comfortable with the documents of my case. I truly appreciate his help and legal advice. I would recommend the Stohlman Law Firm to everyone I know.

There when you need him.
Very clear with his information and always on time with any concerns that we had. I can go on and on, but this pretty much covers it all. I never felt lost during the process.
