Carl Barkemeyer is the man with the plan!
Highly recommended! I was frightened of what will happen after I got a DUI, but with Mr. Brakemeyer working my case everything turned out a lot better than expected. He'll let you know what will happen step by step, which made me feel reassured and stress free.

He is honest, a very serious intellectual and knowledgable lawyer and I recommend him highly. and will certainly call on him if one is needed in the future. He kept me informed of all action being taken and kept me up to date on every decision being made.
