I hired Chris while in a dire DUI situation that left me feeling pretty helpless and hopeless. From the beginning to the very end, Chris remained honest, clear and optimistic, without giving me false hope. He worked hard and smart to find cracks in the charges that were leveraged against me and the outcome tipped in my favor. Even if they hadn't, I know that he fought for the base case I had. If you find yourself in a similar situation I couldn't recommend Chris enough.

I hired Chris to defend me in a determination case. Chris was very thorough. He spent time reviewing my case to make sure he had all the facts and understood the full story. He kept me updated as the case progressed. My trial was scheduled before an ALJ. Chris made sure I was well prepared for trial. During the trial it was obvious he came well prepared. Ultimately we won our case and the ALJ’s ruling had many positive comments in my favor. These would not have come up if Chris didn’t do his research and have the ability to see the big picture. I would recommend Chris without hesitation. I really appreciated his personal demeanor, candidness, thoroughness and preparation. If I need an attorney in the future Chris will be my first call.

I hired Chris Ehrfurth to represent me in three different cases. Two of the cases were to defend me in restraining orders and the other was way more severe. That case was a second degree sexual assault. Mr Ehrfurth did a wonderful job working extra hard into all the evidence. He spent many hours looking into the evidence and finding more evidence to support my case. In a lack of better terms, we ran the table on all the cases. With out him I am not sure what the out come would be. I will definitely use him again in the future if I need to and I'll recommend him to anyone needing legal defense in a heart beat.

I had gotten into a car accident and was arrested for an OWI. Chris, being as astute as he is, was able to poke holes in the OWI case, which resulted in not having my license revoked at the DMV hearing. He was very diligent and very thorough in regards to my case. He kept me updated throughout the entire process and left no stone unturned. Through his systematic approach, during the OWI court hearing, he was able to reduce my OWI to a reckless driving ticket. This means that my record will be clear in 5 years versus 55 years with an OWI. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris.

Was very helpful and kept me informed on everything that was going on. Works hard to get results as quickly as possible and achieves what we set out for.

Chris did is job and kept me out of jail when the state wanted me to do 3 months. I got 1 year probation and I am able to get my case expunged 6 months after my probation was completed.

I had been lawyer shopping after receiving a TRO from a former associate who had falsely accused me of a number of things, and being an artist, with ADD, and anxiety issues, I needed someone who could help me with conveying my message, and asking the right questions... I had spoken to 3 different attorneys before being referred to Christopher Ehrfurth, and Chris was the first one to ask me if I had a clean record. That was important to me, because I know I was innocent of the complaints filed against me. After talking to one of the previous attorneys who sounded like he just didn't believe me... I went into panic mode trying to find some other attorney who I thought would fight for my freedom! Christopher did that, and kept me informed. He was also very classy, and took the "high road" approach, and didn't try to disparage my accuser, like I had heard suggested by others.. At the hearing, Christopher made me feel comfortable when I provided my testimony, and he quickly, and effectively responded to new accusations brought up against me by my accuser, and was able to respond with excellent questions, even while I was bugging him, because I was beginning to get scared by her new accusations that I hadn't prepared for.. Because Christopher did his homework, over the weekend to prepare for my hearing, he was able to shoot-down her allegations, and made me feel very confident under immense pressure.. I'm sure it makes it easier when responding with truthful replies, and answers to false assumptions and truth-twisted statements taken completely out of their context, but we still had to defend against those things, and do it in a way that was respectful of the system, and my accuser... After the trial was over, and the RO was dismissed, I realized that my life was far more important than the feel I paid Christopher Ehrfurth, which was very very small compared to what loss I would have suffered if I had not represented myself well under stress, or had some bottom-feeder attorney represent me.. who didn't believe in me, nor couldn't care less about my case... but more about his fee.. I say that hiring Christopher Ehrfurth was money well spent! Thank you Sir, job well done!

I had to get a temporary restraining order against my ex boyfriend due to his persistant "anonymous" calls to my employer accusing me of being a "recreational" cocaine user. After being suspended pending the results of my hair follicle test, I was fearful for my safety, not knowing what else he would try to do to destroy me, since this plan didn't work. I work as a nurse and he wanted to ruin my career and my life! I called Donna Kuchler and asked her if she thought I would need a lawyer for the hearing, only because someone had suggested I get an attorney. She said yes and I asked her if she had a recommendation and she referred me to someone in her firm who "handles a lot of these with very good results." This happened to be Chris. I spoke with Chris on a Friday and met with him the following Tuesday to go over the case. And to also discuss that I was served with TRO from my ex and the 2 cases were to be held at the same time. To make a long story short, Chris always kept me informed and up on what the plan was and what needed to be done. Upon questioning my ex boyfriend regarding his motives for the TRO against me and the false information that was in this, he decided to withdraw his petition for the TRO. I had no intention of doing this out of fear for my safety. Fortunately, because of how prepared Chris was in his questioning of me and the ex during the hearing, and presenting the evidence, I now have a restraining order in place for 4 years against my ex. Chris is an outstanding lawyer and I can't thank him enough for helping me get my life back to normal!

Attorney Ehrfurth provided excellent counsel on our case and obtained the perfect outcome we had hoped for - a dismissal of my son's case. He was cautious in not over promising but appropriately advised us of potential outcome/s and in the end my son's case was dismissed. It was well worth hiring Attorney Ehrfurth. He not only was knowledgeable and trustworthy but he effectively communicated with us which was assuring.

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.
