Focused on Your Case

We have found that our clients want value, but not at the expense of experience. Most clients wish for their case to be handled by one attorney or a pair of attorneys. However, clients wish for their assigned lawyers to collaborate with a knowledgeable legal team whenever necessary.

At Carleton Hebert Wittenbrink & Shoenfelt, LLC, we promise that an experienced attorney will always be dedicated to your case. However, we often consult with other members of our legal team. Our approach ensures that clients receive the benefits both of single-attorney commitment and the legal knowledge of a larger attorney team with comprehensive experience.

We Know That Reasonable Legal Costs Are Also a Priority

The inner workings of a law firm can seem a bit mysterious from the outside. Clients often wonder why their costs tend to be higher than expected.

We keep costs low by focusing on the case result from the beginning of each case. By focusing on the outcome, not on increasing the fees and overstaffing cases, we have earned a long-term reputation for cost-effective results. At Carleton Hebert Wittenbrink & Shoenfelt, LLC, our clients receive our commitment and collaboration at a reasonable cost.
