Thorough, detailed, honest and smart
I had a car accident, someone rammed into me from behind at a red light. Mr Shofstahl, was very respectful, instructive, and laid out all options. He got the job done and I won a settlement. I would highly recommend him.

Best Lawyer Around!!!
I have never had to use a lawyer before for an automobile accident but I can honestly say Christian was the best person I could have asked for to represent my case. He always made sure to keep me updated on my case, checked in on me to see how I was doing from my injuries, worked diligently with his staff to make sure my case was handled in a timely manner, set me up with a doctor to address my injuries, along with other great things but above all he always treated me with respect and never once did he nor his staff make me feel like I was just someone to make a buck off of. Christian went above and beyond in my case and I can't say enough great things about his work and professionalism. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fair lawyer who will never take more than you get and who will go the extra mile to make you their priority!

Outstanding Law Firm!
After my car accident, I had no clue where to turn and what to do. I didn't realize how hard it would be to get the medical treatment I needed. I realized I needed a good lawyer on my side immediately. I researched lawyer's in my area & found Christian. I was impressed with his resume and accolades. I liked that he had worked for the insurance companies in the past and had now "switched sides". I had a consultation with him & knew I had the right attorney. He and his staff are knowledgeable & professional while still being relatable and personable. He handled every aspect of my difficult case thoroughly and was always a step ahead of the game. He was active and dynamic throughout the entire two and a half year process of my case and communicated with me on a regular basis, always making sure my needs were met and that I was being taken care of properly. Shofstahl Law Firm goes above and beyond. When the other party showed up harassing me at work, I called Christian & he came to my job immediately, making sure the other party left my work property & making sure my work relationship was still fully intact. He even helped me find & get appointments with doctors when I was having problems finding doctors willing to work with my case. Christian treated my case as vigorously as if he was treating my pressing medical needs. I cannot say enough good things about Christian Shofstahl. I know that I absolutely, unequivocally made the right choice being represented by Shofstahl Law Firm. While it was an extremely unfortuanate incident to have to endure, Christian and his team were the silver lining to this whole process. When the case was finally settled, I was compensated beyond what I had ever imagined. Knowing you've got the right legal representation in priceless. I highly recommend Christian to anyone needing his services!

Great Lawyer!
Christian was very approachable, professional, and honest. He was always the one to speak to me, not an assistant. I had never been involved in a lawsuit before, and he got started right away to make sure every aspect of my case went very smoothly. His team was also very helpful. Highly recommended!

Christian Shofstahl is an outstanding attorney! He went above and beyond the call of duty getting my difficult case sorted out. His professionalism is refreshing, to say the least. You will not be sorry you retained his services. (and none of the lawyer jokes apply to him!) As you can tell, I highly recommend him and have done so to friends on several occasions.

The start of it all.
When I first meet Christian he was with another firm, when he advised that he was going to start his own firm I asked him what about 'me' ? I didn't want to work with someone that I did not know. He re-assured me that he could still handle my case. I was never so pleased. Not only is Christian extremely professional and knowledgeble he is also trust worthy and straight forward. Thank you Christian your former client and friend.
