Excellent Representation!
Mr. Haedicke is a top level attorney. He took on my traffic case and did a good job of explaining the various laws and statutes that was involved with the case. He did his due diligence researching prior cases that were relevant to my issue and using that information for my case. In addition, he did a good job of reducing my stress by answering my many questions in a timely fashion and for being very competent and professional. As a result of his representation, the outcome of the case was very good for me.

Best of besr
From start, to end, Stephen made certain that I was aware and understood all the events as they happened. Never having gone through the system and not understanding how lengthy the process can be, he was influential in helping me maintain some level of sanity during the most chaotic times. Worth more than what he fee was, I would recommend him without a second thought.

Fantastic Attorney
I recently used Mr.Haedicke as my attorney. Mr.Haedicke did an awesome job representing me in a personal injury and Civil Rights Case before a Federal Judge. Mr.Haedicke made his self available to me, anytime I called or sent and email with a question I would receive a response usually the same day or the next at the longest. I consider Mr.Haedicke to be a friend now. He represented me well. He was always kind to me and keep me at ease. The settlement was way better than I expected. I highly recommend him for any type of case. If I ever need a attorney I will call Mr.Haedicke. I couldn't have been represented any better. I'm very happy with the results of my case. If you need a attorney for anything call Stephen Haedicke.

Highly Recommended
I spoke with Mr Haedicke on two different occasions and he was very helpful and empathetic. It is rare to find an attorney who treats you with respect and caring like Mr Haedicke did. He gave me sound advice and followed through on what he said he was going to do. I highly recommend!

Endorse Stephen
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 26
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Stephen and I tried a case together in federal court a few years back. We had different defendants, but essentially the same government witnesses testifying against our respective clients. Stephen was highly prepared before after and during the trial. He filed great motions before and during trial and made thoughtful objections here necessary. Turns out the government's case was built on unreliable and fabricated testimony and Stephen exposed that. The result? The government ultimately dismissed the case after a jury verdict that was in favor of the government. I do endorse Stephen and hope to work with him again in the future."
