Testimonials

We hired 'Chuck' as he had us call him, for our son's case of 'fraudulent enlistment'. Although our son was the client, Chuck wanted to speak with his parent/parents since he recently enlisted , was young & didn't understand the 'military way', he wisely felt it necessary to include us in the process. Chuck's prior position as a JAG was a BIG plus since he knew how to deal with all Navy legal issues. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough & felt as if I knew him forever! All my interactions with Chuck were via telephone & I IMMEDIATELY felt at ease discussing every aspect of our lives necessary to the case with him. I knew my son chose him wisely for his case. Chuck consistently kept us informed, helped us remain positive & never gave us false hope, however, made sure we understood that 'it wasn't over yet & to keep the faith'! I was so thankful for his straight forward communication & yet constant encouragement, which I being the mother, needed so very much of! I actually 'sucked the life out of him sometimes'...however he NEVER made me feel that way, answering every question & believe me I had many!!!

We consistently emailed, texted, spoke on the phone, faxed...anyway of communication was ongoing. Throughout the entire process I don't think I ever waited more that 1-2 hours for a response back from either him or his partner...EVER! It was pretty much the most stressful time we ever went thru, again however Chuck & his partner were right there with us all the way thru! I can't speak enough to his professionalism, caring & positive attitude, and above all intelligence & guidance all the way thru to the end....which was a very painful journey!

However, we had a POSITIVE outcome & my son's Navy career continues which I truly believe & doubt would have EVER happened without Chuck as our Attorney.

My whole family certainly knows we all have Chuck to be thankful for as this Thanksgiving approaches.

We recommend him HIGHLY & without hesitation to anyone in need of a caring , very bright Attorney!!!

Thank you Chuck!

I would highly recommend Chuck Schierer for your legal needs. Chuck made a positive impact on my life in a tough situation. After a car accident left me with pain and a need for physical therapy, the last thing I wanted to think about was managing a difficult case. Chuck was compassionate, competent and worked quickly to defend my interests. I felt like he guided me through the process every step of the way and felt secure with my decision to have him represent me. I met with other attorneys in the area but was not completely satisfied. After my first meeting with Chuck, I felt relieved because I finally felt like I was being taken care of properly. Chuck included me in updates in the progress of the case and I could tell that he takes pride in his work and really worked hard for me. I felt like I was part of a team and was very satisfied with the settlement and how quickly I was relieved of my financial burden.

Mr. Schierer helped me in a military lawsuit and he is incomparable to any other lawyers I have worked with. 100% satisfaction. Mr. Schierer represented me in a case where I was fighting to hold my career in the military. I was informed of every bit of information he knew every step of the way. Mr. Schierer updated me on a regular basis and put great efforts into my case. I could tell he cared to save my career and he was honest and never misleading. After a long struggle with my case he prevailed and I am now able to thank Mr. Schierer for my career. He is unlike any attorney I have ever come across and would definitely recommend him to anyone.
-Scott

I recommend Chuck Schierer. He represented me after I was injured in a car accident. He helped me find a good health care professional, made sure my unpaid bills were not affecting my credit report, and worked with the insurance company to make sure they had all the information they needed. He quickly returned all my calls and never left me in the lurch. Chuck doesn't talk down to you because you are not an attorney. He explains everything clearly and is really easy to get along with. And he seemed to be very knowledgeable about the law. I strongly believe Chuck will take care of you and your case.
-Judy

Mr. Schierer handled a personal injury case for me after a car accident. He was very professional and was able to share with me a lot of behind-the-scenes knowledge that enabled me to make the right decisions about my case. He kept me informed every step of the way and was very professional and supportive. I would not hesitate to use him again.
-Elaine

I hired Charles Schierer to represent me with a traffic ticket. Right off the bat I felt comfortable and at ease with the precedings as he told me what to do to protect my license, touched base with the state's attorney to work out my issues, instructed me on how to act respectfully infront of the judge, and communicated with me regularly throughout the whole process. The end result was the ticket being thrown out, so I was really satisfied. I've recommended him to friends and family, who've also ended up being represented by him in a wide variety of issues, all with really great results. Mr. Schierer is an honest and extremely capable attorney and I would recommend him to anyone.
-Wes

Charles Schierer helped my family out during a difficult time in our lives. He was very caring toward us and very empathetic to our situation. He also explained the law to us in a way we could understand, and put us at ease knowing he was out there fighting for our rights. We left our case feeling like not only had we found an attorney we could go back to for anything, but also like we'd found a friend. I highly recommend Charles Schierer as an attorney.
-Dawn

Attorney Tiffany Ritchie conducted a thorough examination of my son's case. Her skill and professionalism along with Attorney Charles Schierer made a very difficult legal situation a lot easier on me and my family. Attorney Ritchie, even after the case was successfully concluded, took the time to follow up regarding other aspects dealing with a large criminal justice agency in the state. This lawyer was relentless in getting justice to the end. Again, the staff and Ms. Buehler whom is a paralegal with this firm did a wonderful job. God bless this firm!!!!!!
-Tony

Tiffany is an excellent attorney and I would recommend her to anyone searching for legal representation. Since my first consultation with Tiffany I believed I had found an experienced attorney who was going to give me the greatest circumstances for a positive outcome. Her knowledge and preparation put me at ease during the time until my case was resolved. I felt every step of the way that Tiffany was flawless and I knew I found not only the expertise I was looking for but also an attorney who was genuinely looking out for my best interests. Tiffany was superb throughout the process and she will be the first call I make should I ever need legal assistance in the future.
-Sam

Tiffany is AMAZING. She was my attorney for an order of protection and custody case. After I told her what had happened, she dropped everything and filed an emergency hearing the same day. We had the O.P. dropped and temporary custody agreement in days. She cared about my child's and my well being far more than any other attorney in the area. I don't know what I would have done without her. Her knowledge of the law was outstanding. She went above and beyond for me. Couldn't have been happier.
-Blake

Tiffany helped me when I was indicted on a federal drug case. She was caring and concerned about my well being. Even though i do not live in her local area she traveled to come see me and work on my defense. The end result of my case was very positive and I know I would not be where I am today without her help. I would recommend her to anyone that needs personable, caring, knowledgeable lawyer on their side.
-John

When in the position of need of an attorney, it's difficult to decide who to entrust while being in such a vulnerable state. I can honestly say that I am grateful to have had Tiffany Richie on my side. From the moment I consulted with her, her dedication and trustworthiness were obvious. She kept me updated at all times and returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. I believe she has a high level of integrity and positive work ethic and therefore highly recommend her to anyone in need of legal representation.
-Matt

Tiffany Ritchie is an excellent client oriented Attorney. She was very helpful and was in contact with me everyday detailing the proceedings during my case. Her knowledge is immense. I would highly recommend her in the cases she deals with. Ritchie guided me well with my situation and helped me achieve a great result in my case.
-Sandra

Chuck did a great job in listening to my situation and was very attentive during the consultation. He asked multiple detailed questions to ensure everything was covered. He also responded to a follow up phone call that I made to him in a timely matter. I would highly recommend Chuck Schierer for legal services.
-Dave

I hired Charles to represent me through a non-contested divorce & custody situation. I had called several firms, but when I called his office, the person on the phone was so helpful and took the time to answer some of my initial questions, it was a great 1st impression Charles met with me personally and took his time to review my case & make suggestions that would benefit me in the agreement. He was very personable and treated me with respect and consideration. He was also with me when I went to the courthouse to finalize everything in front of a judge, that was a big reassurance for me. His paralegal kept in contact with me all throughout the process. I never had to wonder what was happening, I received timely and relevant updates from his office. All in all a great experience during a stressful time in my life. I have recommended him to others and would hire him again for any legal need I had in which he could represent me.
-Eileen

I hired Mr. Schierer as my representative after a car accident. He handled my case in the utmost professional manner. He was attentive to my needs, promptly responded to my calls, and achieved a very honest and just settlement from the insurance company. My case was resolved in a very swift and timely manner as well. I am very pleased with his hard work and results, and I highly recommend him for any legal needs.
-Ty

I was referred to Mr. Schierer by a friend who highly recommended him. After a strong handshake and consultation with Mr. Schierer, he gave me candid legal advice and personal counsel, showed empathy, and outlined a couple of realistic legal courses of action I could take while considering my unique concerns and goals. I immediately liked and trusted him and look forward to working with him on my case.
-Anonymous

Mr Schierer assisted with a legal issue that I had. He worked hard for me and I am happy to say the charges were dropped. I doubt I would have had such favorable outcome were it not for Mr.Schierer. Hired attorney could take while considering my unique concerns and goals. I immediately liked and trusted him and look forward to working with him on my case.
-David

I recently used Charles at Schierer & Ritchie to provide legal services in a business transaction which involved purchase of the building, incorporating the business and putting together a buy/sell agreement between my partner and I. I cannot say enough about how professional, timely and affordable the services were. Charles is very knowledgeable and communicates in ways which are easy to understand. I would highly recommend Schierer and Ritchie for your legal needs.
-Chris

Although I have never personally needed Charles' services, I have consulted him a few times for legal advice and he was very gracious in speaking with me. I have also referred friends and clients his way and they have been thrilled with their experiences. I feel comfortable sending business to Mr. Schierer and will continue to do so.
-Vince

I had a criminal case in Peoria. I was originally assigned a public defender, who wanted me to pled guilty and take 8 years. I hired Chuck Schierer and I could not be happier. He met with me and my wife. He listened to what we had to say. My house was searched by police. Mr. Schierer reviewed the search warrant and determined that my rights were violated by the search. He filed a Motion to throw out all the evidence. We had a hearing before the judge. I was impressed with how prepared he was. He completely outdid the prosecutor. The judge agreed with us and the evidence was thrown out. Hiring Mr. Schierer was the best decision I ever made.
-James

I hired Charles Schierer for a criminal case that I had in Peoria back in April 2015. I can honestly say it was the best decision I could have made. I was facing a battery charge and some serious restitution fines if convicted. Charles and his team went to work on a defense right away, gathering as much information as they could, and kept in contact with me the whole time to give me a heads up on what was going on with the case. The trial date came and Charles' defense found so many holes in the plaintiff's story that he had the plaintiff literally contradicting himself the entire time he was on the stand. This ultimately led to the jury voting a "not guilty" verdict in our favor, and a defendant that couldn't be more happy with the outcome.
-Carlos Saldana

Very friendly, supportive, responsive, knowledgeable and understanding team. As a military member I was very happy with the teams' knowledge and support to unique aspects of my situation.

Reasonable and comparable price for service. I was very happy with speed with which my case was handled and processed. Outstanding support.
-Anonymous

On Nov 8th I found myself needing a lawyer in a county I'm not familiar with..after searching the Internet I decided to call "Chuck" and can say I'm very happy with my decision. I contacted the office first thing on Nov 10th about my situation and Chuck and his staff was right on checking out the whole thing. They were in contact withe me every step of the way, he is very knowledgeable and they tried to keep me relaxed and let them deal with it. On Nov. 12th, I was notified my case was taken care of and I wouldn't need to attend court in December. To my relief I didn't need to stress for a month! I would recommend Chuck and his staff to anyone. He is very thorough, knowledgeable, understanding and will keep you updated on the process.
-Scott

Everyone that I spoke with at the law firm was very knowledgeable and very helpful. All my questions were answered promptly and I was always kept informed of any paperwork additions & court date. Everything was flawless and much less stressful because of the firm, greatly appreciated!
-Anonymous

I was very impressed by how informed they kept me, and always called with updates. Will definitely recommend Attorney Schierer to all friends and family.
-Amber

Attorney Charles Schierer is a very professional and dedicated lawyer. This lawyer not only is trustworthy but truly cared about my son's case. On very short notice, he reviewed the case along with Attorney Ritchie. A strategy was developed with the knowledge of dealing with a very complex legal situation that could have resulted in a lengthy prison sentence in this case. Attorney Schierer made his presentation of the case with key individuals in conference and later secured my son's release. His follow up after the case made me feel like i made the right choice in selecting this attorney. This lawyer and the entire law firm took the lead in ensuring justice was done. Superior staff at this firm!!!!!
-Anthony

Charles Schierer is an excellent attorney and I would recommend him to anyone searching for legal representation. Since my first consultation with Charles I felt confident that I had a highly skilled, efficient, and compassionate attorney. I felt the entire time that my case was of the utmost importance to him and that he was committed to giving me his best. I was never made to feel like I was just a number or that my case was of minor significance to Charles and his staff. Charles Schierer and his associates were superb throughout the process and I hope to work with them again should I ever need legal assistance in the future.
-Anonymous

Attorney Schierer deeply cares about his clients. When I first contacted him on a Saturday late night, he called me back early Sunday and gave me advice and possible consequences about our situation without asking for any money which did not happen with the other lawyers I called before him. He is always kind and deeply cares about his clients and his cases. He fights for your better outcome and always stays in communication with you. He keep his promises and he takes every case very personal as I was able to observed him taking care of other cases as well. I will 100 % recommend Attorney Schierer and his law firm.
-Mary

Integrity, Honesty, Compassion, Confidence which comes from Experience, all qualities that Attorney Schierer possesses. I highly recommend hiring Attorney Schierer. I do not make these recommendations lightly, as I have worked with other lawyers in past and feel they did not have many, if any, of these qualities. I am late posting this review because I have been spending quality time with my children because of Attorney Schierer's competence in and out of the court room! He took on my case with confidence and I felt like I was his only client. He was prompt and thorough with all communication, which is so important when dealing with the courts. I honestly, have only wonderful things to say about Chuck and again, highly recommend hiring him and putting him to work for you, you will not be disappointed!
-Jenny

Mr. Schierer is an excellent attorney. He handled my case (felony drug) for a year, and my final results were very favorable. If there is one thing that makes Charles stand out from other lawyers it is that he genuinely cares about his clients. He went above and beyond in defending me, and made me feel confident about my case. Although I live outside of his local area, he went out of his way to meet with me and work on various aspects of my defense. I could not have asked more from him, and I would highly recommend him to a family member or friend.
-Paul

I highly recommend Mr. Charles. He handled my case like a true professional. He kept my informed. I've had other lawyers that keep u in the dark. Charles Schierer called me back when I had a question. He made me feel as if he cared about me. Not just the $. If you need a lawyer call him.
-Anonymous

He was honest, consistent, and reliable. I was always able to contact him through text, email, or phone calls. He always responded in a timely fashion. He stayed positive and fought for his client. He's charming and if I had any questions, or was unclear about anything, he made sure I understood. Bottom line is, Charles is a great lawyer and he's worth every dollar.
-Kristin

I recently had a need for legal counsel in a very timely order. I was able to meet with Charles within 24 hours of contacting his office. He was very easy to work with and his explanation of the situation were very clear and easy to understand. He immediately made me feel at ease and ensured that all of my questions were answered and that I was comfortable with the actions he was going to take on my behalf. He kept me very well informed throughout, made me feel like I was always a priority for him, and represented me well. I would definitely recommend Charles and will go to him again should I ever need legal representation in the future.
-Anonymous

I thought Mr. Schierer was outstanding. He was direct and to the point, and did not try to make things seem better than they actually were. I was very prepared for trial, thanks to Mr. Schierer. He made sure that I would be comfortable on the stand, and helped me prepare my case for the very best outcome.

At trial, Mr. Schierer was positive and kept me informed as to how things were going. He was aggressive when he needed to be, but never to the point of making me or himself look badly. He knew how to handle both the prosecutor and the judge and made me feel very at ease.

I think Mr. Schierer is a very caring, knowledgeable, and responsive attorney. I would definitely hire him again. I think the firm had my best interest at heart, and won a case that I thought maybe was too difficult to win. Thanks to you and your firm.
-Tony

I call his office an he help me with my case. He agreed to meet me at a restaurant bc I did not have a car at the time. He listened to me. He really believed in me. we was a really good lawyer to me. Plus I got a really good deal. Probation. Now I can just go back to work.
-Andres

I highly recommend Mr. Schierer. My ex tried to keep me from seeing my children. Mr. Schierer filed a motion and asked the Judge to allow visitation. Then my ex tried to modify visitation to supervised. All based on lies. Mr. Schierer kept me calm and helped us work through the case. We built a list of witnesses and prepared for our day in court. The other lawyer gave in and my visitation was returned. Thank you Schierer & Ritchie! I will recommend you to anyone.
-Anonymous

I hired Mr. Schierer as my lawyer and he did a outstanding job with my case. I really appreciate the work he did to get my case dismissed. Thanks for everything.
-Anonymous

Mr. Schierer is my go to-attorney for matters of estate planning and professional liability. His vast knowledge of law coupled with complete competency in accounting matters allows him to provide solid advice from multiple perspectives. I highly recommend Mr. Schierer.
-Paul

I have recommended Charles Schierer to clients over the past 10 years and have received excellent feedback as to his responsiveness, knowledge, and master in the subject required. Also, having been in court with Mr. Schierer, I know firsthand of his preparedness and assertiveness in representing criminal defendants. Mr. Schierer gets the job done!
-Anonymous

My Husband contacted Charles regarding a recent car accident that was not my fault. Upon meeting with Charles for the first time I felt very comfortable and that Charles is a caring and very knowledgeable attorney. Since then we have been in constant contact via phone, in person and email. The first case has not been settled as I am still under medical care.

I was just recently in another car accident that is not my fault and Charles will be handling this case also. When we met with Charles for this case, Charles explained that this is a very unusual case but he explained that all we had to be concerned about was getting me "back to normal" and not to worry about anything else as that was what he was hired for. We left that meeting feeling relieved and comforted that we had hired Charles to do our cases.

I have recommended Charles to others for handling their legal issues.
-Ingrid

Charles is a very patient, smart & quick guy. He is such a warm hearted gentleman. All i had to do is to believe in him and the issue gets resolved with ease. I would strongly recommend Charles, what ever case it may be....
-Ganesh

Love one got himself in trouble with the law and attorney Schierer has been there to offer not only his professional experience and services but in addition he personally has giving us the peace of mind we needed during this difficult time. He promptly communicated the legal process even before we hired him. Our case is still in the process and the outcome so far has been favorable . He genuinely serves his clients. He does not see his cases as numbers or has interest in how much money he can take from you.
-Client's mother

I highly recommend Charles. He represented a family member on a murder charge. Everybody had given up thinking he did it. But Charles fought the charges. He showed how the police and witnesses did not tell the truth. He cared about us. He returned our calls. He sat down and explained everything. And when the jury came back with a NOT GUILTY we all cheered. The judge ordered us out of the courtroom. Everyone was celebrating. Charles Schierer is the best. Thank you!!
-Madison

The office contacted me less than 24 hours after I inquired for legal help online. My case was handled very quickly in a very professional manner. Although my legal needs were for a misdemeanor case, Mr. Schierer never treated me as if my case was any less important than a "higher retainer" case. I would recommend this firm to anyone needing legal assistance. The retainer was reasonable.
