Great lawyer.
Hans did a great job on my case. I was facing a charge that could if handled wrong would have cost me more than just money. He was professional and able to get me into a deferment program to clear my charges off my record. Thanks again Hans.

Wonderful Experience
Mr. Pfaffenberger went above and beyond with our insurance claims case. He did thorough research, communicated clearly with us along the way, and worked in a very timely manner. We had great faith in his knowledge and skills every step of the way. Ultimately, he was able to settle the matter quickly and very strongly in our favor. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for someone to represent them in his areas of specialization.

Criminal case
Hans was great to work with. He was very accessible and when not available he responded quickly. He went way beyond what was asked of him. I trusted his ability and that I was receiving good advice. Very professional and I would highly recommend him.

Well-prepared
Mr. Pfaffenberger is well-prepared for his cases. Each litigation is well thought out and put together in great detail. Many other attorney's are only in the business for money, however, Mr. Pfaffenberger takes extra time to investigate all avenues that may help your outcome, and treats you as a person, not a paycheck. He is very talented and highly recommended.
