“After being indicted on federal conspiracy and mortgage fraud charges, I started working with an attorney that I clashed with and did not have any confidence in. Shortly after, I found Stangl Law Offices, S.C. It took months to get my case moving, but during those months, Attorney Stangl kept in close contact, checking in to see how I was doing and keeping me up to date on new information. He worked extremely hard and I know without a shadow of a doubt Attorney Stangl did everything possible to successfully defend me. The case involved reviewing, studying, and organizing approximately 8,000 pages of discovery materials, hundreds of hours of preparation, and several days in a jury trial. As a result of Attorney Stangl’s dedication and commitment to not only my case but to me, I was given a short term of supervision. Prior to the trial, Attorney Stangl spent time with my family and answered any and all of our questions. He gave me his word that he would do everything he could to carry me through this difficult time in my life. His word is his bond. I could not have made it through or received the outcome I did without the 100%+ dedication by Pat Stangl.”
