Review Charles Schierer

  • Great Service & follow through

    I hired Charles to represent me through a non-contested divorce & custody situation. I had called several firms, but when I called his office, the person on the phone was so helpful and took the time to answer some of my initial questions, it was a great 1st impression. Charles met with me personally and took his time to review my case & make suggestions that would benefit me in the agreement. He was very personable and treated me with respect and consideration. He was also with me when I went to the courthouse to finalize everything in front of a judge, that was a big reassurance for me. His paralegal kept in contact with me all throughout the process. I never had to wonder what was happening, I received timely and relevant updates from his office. All in all a great experience during a stressful time in my life. I have recommended him to others and would hire him again for any legal need I had in which he could represent me.

    I hired Mr. Schierer as my representative after a car accident. He handled my case in the utmost professional manner. He was attentive to my needs, promptly responded to my calls, and achieved a very honest and just settlement from the insurance company. My case was resolved in a very swift and timely manner as well. I am very pleased with his hard work and results, and I highly recommend him for any legal needs.

    I was referred to Mr. Schierer by a friend who highly recommended him. After a strong handshake and consultation with Mr. Schierer, he gave me candid legal advice and personal counsel, showed empathy, and outlined a couple of realistic legal courses of action I could take while considering my unique concerns and goals. I immediately liked and trusted him and look forward to working with him on my case.

    Mr Schneider assisted with a legal issue that I had. He worked hard for me and I am happy to say the charges were dropped. I doubt I would have had such favorable outcome were it not for Mr.Schierer

    I recently used Charles at Schierer & Ritchie to provide legal services in a business transaction which involved purchase of the building, incorporating the business and putting together a buy/sell agreement between my partner and I. I cannot say enough about how professional, timely and affordable the services were. Charles is very knowledgeable and communicates in ways which are easy to understand. I would highly recommend Schierer and Ritchie for your legal needs.

    Although I have never personally needed Charles' services, I have consulted him a few times for legal advice and he was very gracious in speaking with me. I have also referred friends and clients his way and they have been thrilled with their experiences. I feel comfortable sending business to Mr. Schierer and will continue to do so.

    I had a criminal case in Peoria. I was originally assigned a public defender, who wanted me to pled guilty and take 8 years. I hired Chuck Schierer and I could not be happier. He met with me and my wife. He listened to what we had to say. My house was searched by police. Mr. Schierer reviewed the search warrant and determined that my rights were violated by the search. He filed a Motion to throw out all the evidence. We had a hearing before the judge. I was impressed with how prepared he was. He completely outdid the prosecutor. The judge agreed with us and the evidence was thrown out. Hiring Mr. Schierer was the best decision I ever made.

    I hired Charles and I really thought he was going to be great but I wasn't impressed. He seemed more concerned with getting paid than handling my case. Once he had his fee he seemed disinterested in putting forth a lot of effort. I wouldn't come back to him in a million years. He forgot who I was on more than one occasion and even started telling me my options on a case that had nothing to do with me. If you ask questions he gets upset with you and pretty much blows you off. Steer clear of this one, much better counsel out there than this guy. So hire him at your own discretion but I won't be surprised if he falls way short of the initial options he presents during your free consultation.

    Charles Gregory Schierer’s response: “This is not a legitimate review of our services. We have over 15 years of experience and have represented hundreds of clients for charges stemming from the most serious to the minor. When we meet with clients during the free consultation, we have not yet reviewed any of the evidence or spoken to law enforcement or the prosecution. Once we get in the case and review the evidence our view of the best options available may come into better focus. In this case, the client simply did not want to accept the best options in the case. As with all cases we given careful thought to each of the option and we lay them out for the clients with our recommendations. That is what happened here. Unfortunately, the clients' prior decisions and admissions to law enforcement reduced the number of options available. Any person who hires us will get our HONEST and STRAIGHT FORWARD advice, even if that means you don't want to hear it. Sometimes clients have to hear bad news. Some problems can only be contained. This client simply would not accept the options that they caused.”

    I hired Charles Schierer for a criminal case that I had in Peoria back in April 2015. I can honestly say it was the best decision I could have made. I was facing a battery charge and some serious restitution fines if convicted. Charles and his team went to work on a defense right away, gathering as much information as they could, and kept in contact with me the whole time to give me a heads up on what was going on with the case. The trial date came and Charles' defense found so many holes in the plaintiff's story that he had the plaintiff literally contradicting himself the entire time he was on the stand. This ultimately led to the jury voting a "not guilty" verdict in our favor, and a defendant that couldn't be more happy with the outcome. :D
