Five stars across the board.

How it should be
Andrew was absolutely amazing! He is compassionate and truly cares about you as an individual not just as a case! He goes after what is your civil right as a human and puts on a good argument to win a case! I would suggest this office to everyone looking for someone who really fights for you! The whole staff is very pleasant to work with.

Wonderful attorney and powerful negotiator
Mr. Kraushaar is a fantastic attorney. He took the time meet with me in person to discuss my legal issue, accomodating my work schedule and even giving up his own lunch hour multiple times to do so. He individually explained each one of the options before me and ultimately pursued the one that I chose aggressively. The outcome of my case speaks for itself. Thanks to Mr. Kraushaar, my case ended with the best possible result that I could have hoped for without ever even having to go to trial. There is nobody else I would recommend to a person in need of legal assistance. Although I hope to never have to see him again in this context, I would certainly go to him for any legal issues that arise in the future.

Great Attorney!
Andy is a great attorney, he took the time to understand my story and explain it to the court in a way that was impactful. Even though the district attorney opposed my motion we still won the hearing. I couldn’t be happier with his services!

Amazing Lawyer
I was charged with a disorderly conduct and duii when i was drinking in my own home. The cops could of used information that i had given them to prove i was Not driving prior to me drinking, they choose to not use that information an booked me. Andy got the duii charge dropped and 5 days of community service w/no probation for the disorderly conduct, which was understandable considering the circumstances. Andy was very professional an is a great person. I highly recommend Andy’s firm.

Exceptional Performance and Help
Throughout my legal needs, Mr. Kraushaar provided exceptional service. I received timely responses to questions I had pertaining to my case and phone call updates to explain any new findings that changed aspects of process. I had a goal to follow through with all agreements I made related to charges and received excellent advice in how to go about and maintain good standing with the court. The professional help and environment exceeded my expectations, I am very happy that I hired an attorney. Moreover, hiring Mr. Kraushaar was a great decision, I ended up with a better outcome than I had expected or even known of prior to the case. I would highly recommend Mr. Kraushaar to anyone looking for a positive and professional attorney that can yield very great resolutions out of negative situations.

Thanks Andrew
I had a legal issue come up and contacted Andrew after recommendation from a friend. From the first minute he was professional and listened to what I had to say. He assured me he would do all of the work for my case and reassured me that he was onto of things. Well he definitely didn't disappoint. He handled everything and the case didn't even go to trial! He clearly explained all of the steps of the process and rexplained things I missed. I will and highly recommend him to anybody who wants a great lawyer and will be sure to call him if I ever need any legal help again. Thanks Andrew!

Review of Andrew Kraushaar
Andrew assisted with my request on a motion before the court . He stated that the motion was an uphill battle but. he put all his efforts and presented my position with great enthusiasm and believe that my motion should be granted . He did such an amazing presentation that my motion was granted. I will if I have a need to use his services again and if I know of anyone in search of a criminal attorney I would recommend Andrew.

Lawyer of a Lifetime
Andy is an awesome lawyer. Unfortunately I got caught up in a situation with the law, and had no idea where to turn, or what to do next. I had never previously been in trouble or worked with a lawyer, and Andy guided me throughout the whole process. As a student at the University of Oregon, I was directed to Andy through ASUO legal services, and I am so thankful. Andy was knowledgeable about all the options I could have taken, and got me on an awesome diversion program to remove the offense from my record in just 6 months. He is attentive, and made the situation easy as we struggled through corona virus in the middle of my case. He set up an awesome video call with judge, and city prosecutor through the state, so I didn't have to show up to court since I am in a Stay At Home order in California. I would highly suggest Andrew, he will get you the best result for your case!

Skilled, effective, and personable
Andy was incredibly knowledgeable and worked tirelessly to research and prepare everything necessary to present the best case we could. He was open and honest with me about the strengths and weaknesses of my case and he was understanding and sensitive to what I was going through, which made a traumatic process much easier to walk through. He encouraged me to be truthful and say the hard things that needed to be said, and I was confident throughout that my case was in more than competent and capable hands and that he would do all he could to achieve the best possible outcome. I am so grateful to Andy for all his hard work and I would not hesitate to recommend him!

Lots of Help in a Crazy Time
He knows his stuff, which was nice because I would have been completely clueless without him. Also good communication and getting everything done that we needed to despite all the craziness happening during the time of my legal troubles, with covid continually pushing back the court dates and personal appearances and whatnot. He did a great job.

Legal assistance
Mr. Kraushaar was a huge help in court and was pivotal in helping my daughters’ case. We were able to extend our “grace period” and finalize our sentencing with minimal pressure from the city and court.
Posted by John | June 17, 2015
great results
Just got back from court, Mr Kraushaar did a good job for me, gave me all my options, so i could decide what was best for me at this time. we both wanted to take my case to trial. but my present situation dictated that i settle for the lesser charge. I would definitely keep him as my lawyer if i ever have a need for one in the future. John

Don't ever go to him for divorce case
Due to the time limit, I had to choose him. What a gigantic mistake!!! He doesn't even know basic stuff I can find from internet and he pushed me for settlement in terms favor of the other party. I even pay the 1/2 of extracurricular cost for kids on top of child support I pay which I found out today that you usually don't pay after you pay child support. It looks like he is an excellent criminal defense attorney but he would be the worst attorney for divorce case you can get.
