I hired Mr. Schafer to work for me on a D.U.I case. He did a nice job on informing me about what was happening and what to expect. He was clear on his approach to the situation and listened to my concerns about the case. I am extremely happy with the work done on the case and would use Mr. Schafer again.

Brent Schafer represented me in my DUI case and did an excellent job. He explained my options in great detail and was very respectful to me in my pre-trial meetings even though I was extremely ashamed of my actions. I felt he was respectful to the Judge during my trial which led to a favorable outcome for me. I hope I never have to use a Lawyer again but if I do I will not hesitate to call Bent for his assistance.

Brent Schafer is well respected by judges, attorneys, court staff and professional colleagues. He has earned an excellent reputation as a smart, well-prepared and effective attorney. I have known Brent a long time, and I would gladly refer to him with confidence that he would do an outstanding job.
