Home-town Attorney who will fight for what is fair.
I was involved in an auto accident and hired Mr. Erhart to represent me. He spoke in terms I could understand and explained the Minnesota no-fault laws to my family. He fought to obtain a reasonable settlement, a settlement I thought was fair. Mr. Erhart and his staff were always available for questions, and I felt at home at his offices. I had all the confidence in the world that he do his best to obtain a fair settlement. He also helped my husband and I to plan our estate after my personal injury case was settled. I would highly recommend Mr. Erhart not only in personal injury cases, but also in business law, estate planning, probate, and real estate.

Amazing Experience
William Erhart and his team provided an amazing experience from start to finish. It was evident Mr. Erhart has built his firm around providing superior customer service. The moment I engaged Erhart and Associates during my free consultation I knew I was in good hands. The ongoing communication relieved any/all anxiety I had around my legal issues. Mr. Erhart told me to concentrate on my work and family life and he would handle my case. His 30+ years of experience and foot print in the legal community aided in the positive result received in trial. Overall I am extremely thankful I chose to work with William Erhart. His firm exceeded all expectations I had and allowed me to put my troubles behind me. After my case was resolved I referred several individuals to Erhart and Associates and they all had a great experience and outcome. i can't thank Mr. Erhart enough for the services he provided!
