TESTIMONIALS

Thank you so much for all your help Brent! I'm thankful that we were able to work through this tough situation with your assistance. My son's case happened on the weekend and Brent answered the phone when I called. This impressed me that he would take the time to help over a weekend. We were terrified and Brent assured us he could help. Brent was very knowledgeable about criminal defense. We felt he was thorough and kept our best interest at heart. He helped us through a difficult situation and the outcome was the best we could have hoped for. I would highly recommend Brent Schafer. Thank you Brent for being there for us!

I was charged with 4th degree DWI in Golden Valley, MN. One of my very close friend referred me Brent Schafer's name and I contacted him right away. He started the document work straight away and was very detailed and knowledgeable throughout the process. Being an immigrant and with zero knowledge of any legal term, it was a terrifying experience for me but Brent helped me and explained everything with patients.

I had to move to different state and couldn't make it to a single court hearing but Brent have been an amazing help and handled everything in my absence. At the end, after lot of efforts and tons of court hearing he was able to reduce my DWI charges to less serious charge and we are happy with what we have got!

Brent literally brought my case up out of no where. I was going through a different lawyer and he spent 6 years on it and pretty much told me there was nothing to be done. I contacted Brent and within a week was my statue of limitations and he opened the case again. It's been almost 9 years since my injury and Brent has saved me. I would recommend him in a heart beat he is very professional and very honest on everything. Brent is very worth your money and time.

Brent Schafer represented me in my DUI case and did an excellent job. He explained my options in great detail and was very respectful to me in my pre-trial meetings even though I was extremely ashamed of my actions. I felt he was respectful to the Judge during my trial which led to a favorable outcome for me. I hope I never have to use a Lawyer again but if I do I will not hesitate to call Brent for his assistance.

My wife and I found ourselves in a legal mess and had retained a different attorney to start with. That attorney was extremely disorganized and basically told me to plead guilty to a charge I was not guilty of and move forward. I quickly realized I needed to change attorneys and luckily found Brent Schafer. Brent took the time to listen to both my wife and myself and spent extra time understanding our family and situation. He then guided us through the process of 1st appearances, the pre-trail.

In 2008 I was charged with a 3rd degree assault and DUI for a domestic dispute. Brent was very helpful in strategizing the case and worked with me on every step to get the best outcome. As a result, DUI was dropped and my conviction was Gross Misdemeanor. During the process my ex-wife also filed for a protection order which could have disallowed me to see my kids. He successfully argued to not have any protection order. I am very pleased with Brent's services.

Brent did an excellent job throughout the entire process by keeping me well informed of my options and outlining the different scenarios so I could make a well informed decision. He was honest with me and had my best interest at heart. I felt he was in my corner throughout and it gave me a great piece of mind. I would definitely call on him again and highly recommend him.

Couldn't have done it without him!!


I had to break a lease with a townhome company that I was renting from because of the loss my job. The management company of the townhomes, decided they wanted to bring me to litigation court for money owed to them for breaking the lease (which was rent I owed until my lease came to term, painting, locks, disposal of trash, etc). The money they were asking for was astronomical and ridiculous!! But, I knew that I couldn't fight this alone in court. This management team was hard pressed to get what they wanted. When searching for an Attorney to help me out with this, I came across Brent Schafer. I knew the passion he had for his clients and the impact he had when fighting cases for them. So, I called him and asked him if this was something he would take on. He did, with no hesitation. Brent was very thorough with what he needed from me, and what he could do. He explained everything from why the rental management company may be charging me this, and what they may buck at and want me to pay. He made a phone call to the management company and explained that I had retained him to work on this case. He told me they didn't budge with his first offer. He would continue, and wasn't going to give up until he got them to budge. It didn't take Brent long to get a good settlement for me from them. I didn't have to be there, he always kept me in the loop as to what was going on. Brent is extremely knowledgeable in the legal system. He puts in the time and effort into his clients, explaining everything has he goes. In the end, Brent saved me nearly $3,000!! I highly recommend Brent, and always give his name to people that may need help with legal issues. I would definitely hire Brent for any legal issue I have. I trust his work, his word, his knowledge. And I know he is in it for me, to make sure to get me the best outcome.

Legal Representation- Review Hearing


I hired Mr. Schafer for a loved one. We were very pleased with the outcome of the Court Hearing. There was conflict with the original sentencing agreement. Our loved one attempted to get his EHM started and was denied by the agency that sets up the equipment in the home. Turns out that the Judge only granted our loved one 30 days in jail, in addition to what agreed upon for him to serve in custody. At this Review Hearing, Mr. Schafer made it possible to present very well before the Judge and our loved one ended up NOT facing Probation Violation for an additional charge. Everything ran concurrent.

Brent was instrumental in assisting our family with some traffic ticket issues. He has a thorough understanding of the law and came through in a big way for my son Gavin and daughter Erin in two separate cases here in Eden Prairie, MN.

I would highly recommend Brent's services.

From the initial contact with Mr. Schafer, I felt right away that he was going to represent my interest in the best way possible. Brent looked at every angle of the case and left no stone unturned in my defense strategy. He kept us informed in every step of the process, which helped to calm the given fears of going through any legal matter. He achieved the best possible outcome for us, which we are forever grateful for. I would recommend Brent to any of our close family, friends and co-workers who might be in need of a top notch legal defense, without question. Thanks again Brent for your outstanding service. You are the BEST!

Legal Counsel for DUI Case


Brent was an excellent resource from the moment I contacted him. He was available to answer my questions beginning with a phone call from the police station late on a Friday evening (following my company's Christmas party -- Thank You very much). He continued to answer my questions and concerns quickly (even on a Sunday evening). His recommendations and counsel proved to be very valuable. Furthermore, what he asked for in compensation was more than reasonable. If you need legal help regarding a DUI, no need to look further than Mr. Brent Schafer.

Brent is not only an excellent lawyer, he cares greatly about his clients. I couldnt have asked for a greater person to help me in my difficult time!

Mr. Schafer's has been extremely helpful for me in dealing with multiple legal matters. From my divorce and real estate matters, to traffic violations, his vast knowledge of the law has proven to be invaluable to me and my family. I have used Brent's services on 4 or 5 different occasions and in each instance he has been very attentive, fair and quick to get matters handled. I will continue to use Brent as my main legal council for years to come, he's truly an asset to anyone needing legal help.

When going through a difficult situation I felt confident knowing that I had the best person looking out for my best interest.

Brent Schafer Did a Great Job

He then guided us through the process of 1st appearances, the pre-trail, and the whole process we had ahead of us. He was always available to answer questions we had. In the end, he got all the charges against my dismissed as they should have been and I would highly recommend Brent to anyone who needs legal help.

Excellent Help for Out of State Client


I was in town on business when I got a DUI for just moving a coworkers car so we could get a taxi back to the hotel. Living out of state in South Carolina this created quite a mess for me to deal with and understand. Brent was very good at taking me thru the steps that Minnesota required and calming me down to deal with the reality of the situation no matter how ridiculous I found it. Since I had a previous incident in another state this only added to the possible charges being brought against me. Brent took the time to work each step and finally got my charges and penalties down to a level where I could keep my job (avoiding jail time or house arrest) and having no community service to boot which would have been tough to manage with as much as I travel.

Having not dealt with a legal system as complicated (to me anyway) as Minnesota's it was very helpful to have someone take the time to work thru each step of the process and fight to get me the best deal possible when he simply could have pushed me to take the first offer which would have probably not only cost me my job but my career in outside sales. He fought for what I wanted and he got it!
