About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

Eric Eickhoff is a criminal defense attorney based in Appleton, WI. Since second grade Eric knew he wanted to be an attorney. And having been a lifelong resident of the Fox Cities, Eric knew this is where he wanted to practice law. Even though Eric’s office is in Outagamie County, he has significant experience in Brown and Calment Counties. Because of Eric’s capabilities, he has been appointed cases in Door, Manitowoc, Marathon, and Winnebago Counties as well.

While Eric Eickhoff has extensive experience in other areas of law, Eric has made the conscience decision to focus on criminal defense. When an individual is alleged to have committed a misdemeanor or felony they need an attorney that has a thorough understanding of criminal law and the criminal justice system. Since Eric exclusively practices criminal defense, he has that knowledge. In addition to that, Eric also has the experience. He has handled all types of criminal cases including disorderly conduct, OWI, battery, sexual assault, and drug related charges.

In addition to an attorney’s knowledge and experience, an attorney’s reputation and relationship with the judge, courtroom staff, and prosecutor is also very important. Eric Eickhoff has a positive reputation and relationship with the judges and courtroom staff that he practices in front of and the prosecutors that he practices next to. What does that mean to an individual that is alleged to have committed a crime? A higher likelihood that their case will be resolved successfully.

Anyone charged with a crime has certain rights, including the right to an attorney. Exercise that right; do not waive it. The criminal justice system is a maze that you do not need to, and should not, navigate alone. If have questions about your case or your rights, do not hesitate to call Eric and set up a time for a free consultation.

I highly recommend Attorney Eickhof, his knowledge and understanding of the court system is great. He is very thorough in explaining the situation and going through your options. I've known Eric for some time now and I wouldn't recommend anyone else but Attorney Eickhof.

Attorney Eric Eickhoff is a miracle worker!!!
If you’ve found yourself in legal trouble and are looking for top notch quality attorneys, you’ve come to the right place! Attorney Eric Eickhoff is hands down a miracle worker! I had a case that, without joking, I was almost positive I’d be charged with two felonies and receive jail time. At the very least probation... Im not sure how he pulled it off, but this man got me knocked down to a Misdemeanor and a fine for $200 in a county known for being hard on crime and with zero leeway on charges, and pushing the penalties to the max! If you’re considering going elsewhere, you’re a fool! This attorney has a straight forward, no bs attitude, and is more than happy to stand up and take things to trial if need be. He’s not afraid of hard nosed DA’s, and doesn’t bend to intimidating cases. Seriously, I owe my freedom as we speak because of this legal magician. Words cannot express my gratitude! At first my outcome in my case was painfully bleak, up until I struck pure gold with attorney Eickhoff. If you’re smart, you’ll call today to put down a retainer!

Thank you Eric!!!
I would highly recommend Hogan/Eickhoff!! I was in a tight spot and had no idea who to call or where to go. I started calling attorneys and I found Hogan/Eickhoff. Best call I ever made!! Over the phone Eric helped me with everything, answered all my questions, was extremely fair and gave me peace of mind. When I met with Eric he introduced me to the whole staff then he went to work putting my mind at ease. He gave me some homework to do but most of all, he told me to put my worries to rest that he would take care of everything!! And that he did not to mention got me the best offer I could get. If I ever needed help again, which I honestly hope I don't need, I will not hesitate to make Hogan/Eickhoff my first call!

From looking like life in prision to house arrest
I went to Mr. Eickhoff because a friend reccomend him to me. I wasnt sure what to expect, I was facing a maximum penalty of 107 years of prison I was convinced that I had no chance to get no prison the public defender I had kept telling me I was probably going to do significant prison time. After meeting with Mr. Eickhoff about my case I had this feeling that it wasnt going to be as bad as the public defender made it out to be. Throughout my court cases and everything Eric was there with me translating the legal talk in to every day talk so I could understand. And every question I had about my case he was able to answer. Finally when it was my sentencing date we went in there not sure what to expect, and through his legal expertise, charisma, and ability to articulate sentences we were able to get me 6 months of house arrest and 5 years probation, compared to 100 years of prision we won big. I'd highly recommend Eric to anyone who is facing legal issues he is very easy to talk to and very skilled and knowledgeable in law.

Highly recommended!!!
I hired Eric for two misdemeanor charges. Before hiring Eric I did my own research, and called 8 criminal defence attorney's. He took the time to speak with me many times giving great advise for court before I hired him. If Eric was not in the office his receptionist made sure I had is cell phone number. Throughout the process he was very informative and his communication was great. Eric did get one misdemeanor dismissed, and the other one dropped to an ordinance violation. This was exactly the outcome I was looking for. If you are looking for a great attorney I would highly recommend Eric Eickhoff.

Outstanding Lawyer
Eric Eickhoff is not only an outstanding lawyer and litigator. Eric is an outstanding human being . This man will fight tirelessly for you. He will fight and advocate for you like you are a close friend or family member. If you are tired of being treated like you are just another "case", and attorneys tell you "it's not personal" don't settle for that. Do what I did call Eric Eickhoff. He helped my son, and I will be forever greatful.

Outstanding job Eric!
I was amazed at how great of a lawyer Eric was. He went above and beyond in my case. I was being charged with a felony and he fought for me and got them to drop the charge. I am so thankful I had such a hard-working and dedicated lawyer on my case. I would definately recommend him. I was very much amazed at just how good he was. Thank you so much Eric. You have helped me tremendously and I am grateful

AMAZING WORK!!
If I could give Eric 10 stars I would!! For starters, Eric is extremely polite, professional and he always responds quickly! Previous attorneys would take days to respond, but Eric always answered the phone, and if he couldn't, called back within minutes to an hour. Eric represented my husband in his probation revocation hearing. Instead of weeks or months, he got my husband in with the judge within a week! My husband was facing 12 months....he got my husband 37 days!!! Eric definitely knows his stuff and is GREAT at what he does!! I will recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Godsend
When It comes to attorneys , Eric breaks the mold! My son just wasn't a name on his calendar. Eric literally takes the time to get to know his clients! And the people supporting them. Not once did he ever miss returning one of my phone calls or make me feel like any of my questions or offerings of information were stupid or bothersome. He sees the good in people, knows there is two sides to everything and will fight tooth and nail to the best and fairest deal possible. My son was facing 12+ years in prison and because of all that Eric has done he will be on Huber in a month, reunited with his two small boys the end of next July and 4yrs. probation. I highly recommend him!!!
