Laurie Shertz is the very best attorney i have ever had. She has been very helpful in my case and has helped me make all the right calls. She got me out of federal custody and into a halfway house. She has had nothing but my best interest while dealing with my case. I am so grateful to have her helping me.

She is always available and communicates when she is not... This will sum up Laurie shertz, " she has allot of integrity" if she says she is going to call u better believe she will.. she tells u how it is and does not B.S you... Thank you Laurie Joel

My son was accused of a serious Federal offense, at this point, his future was in the hands of an attorney, I am so grateful that attorney was Laurie Schertz!! It is a very scary place to be, to say the least. Ms. Schertz took charge, she had an investigator and an assistance. They all seemed to spent countless hours to give my son the best defense. I am sure that she had other clients, but Laurie always made us feel like we were the only one. She is attentive, responsive, dedicated and professional and most important to me.....compassionate. She took the time to know my son and I. I did not feel like I was just another number on the case load.
I unfortunately have had the opportunity to deal with numerous attorneys over the years. Most of the time I have felt that it was about the money and moving the case along. I never felt that way with Ms. Schertz. She truly cared about what was best for my son, not herself.
My son got the best deal possible, I believe. He has been in prison for almost 8 months now. The really amazing piece is this......Laurie told us that she was closing the case and putting the file away, but that if there was anything we needed to let her know. My son is having some release issues, he got a hold of Laurie and she took care of business.
Laurie Schertz is a woman of integrity, if you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, my belief is that Laurie is the BEST. She knows her way around the court room and has poise. People pay attention when she talks.
I can not say enough good about Laurie Schertz as an attorney and a person.
