Testimonials for Chadwick James Kaehne

  • “We hired Attorney Kaehne to represent my husband in a serious legal matter. My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. We hope to never be in this predicament again, but if we are, he will be out first choice! We appreciate Attorney Kaehne’s time, attention, and diligence in getting this matter resolved above and beyond our expectations. We are ready to move past this chapter of our lives and couldn’t have chosen a better attorney to accompany us on this journey.”
  • “We were so fortunate to be referred to Attorney Kaehne and his firm to assist us with a very complex legal case that was already a few years old. Attorney Kaehne listened to us, thoroughly researched the issues and quickly had a grasp on the complexity and nuances of the case. Within a short time he had a better understanding of the issues than an attorney who had been working with us for a couple of years. He and his firm were professional, thorough, and most importantly honest with our options and guided us in some difficult decisions. The case has finally been able to come to a successful conclusion due to the hard and unrelenting work of Attorney Kaehne and his firm. If we ever need additional or subsequent legal advice we would only think of Kaehne, Cottle & Pasquale & Associates. We are grateful and more than satisfied.”
  • “A few months ago I hired Chad to take my [owi] case. When presented he listened closely and explained what steps he would take if hired. He followed through with discovery, motions to suppress. The outcome was in my favor. The case dismissed. Now, I can’t say this will happen for all, but it my case it did. I recommend him highly. His prep of my case was thorough and well thought out. He had done his homework and knew exactly the case law the judge referred. Again, I highly recommend Chad. I might add, if the case would not have gone in the direction it did, I still recommend Chad. Not only for the above reasons, but for his no-nonsense approach. He told me what I was facing, what might occur. There were no surprises.”

Testimonials for Rachel Renae Laborde

  • “Attorney Rachel Laborde is amazing. I met with a few lawyers before Attorney Laborde and I felt like they were treating me like cash flow, another case number. When I met Attorney Laborde, I felt comfortable with her from the start. She handled my case on a personal level and made me feel like my opinion mattered. She treated me with respect and took my son into consideration through the whole divorce process. She is honest, straightforward, and won’t make promises she can’t keep. I have and will continue to recommend friends to Attorney Laborde.”
  • “I have had the opportunity to have my stereotype of lawyers and particularly divorce lawyers completely demolished by Attorney Laborde. She clearly and most definitely has the best interest of her client and children involved at heart. She is articulate and direct and most completely, ethical. I would like to thank her for wrecking my stereotype;)”
  • “As messy as the divorce process is Rachel made it as easy as could be. She always kept me informed and let me know of a certain situation that could arise. She was very honest and made sure that I was comfortable with every situation. She knew exactly how to handle, what seemed like, every situation. I couldn’t have got through the process without her. Absolutely fantastic.”
  • “Attorney Laborde was very knowledgeable throughout my case. I would recommend her to anyone with a family law issue. She helped with my divorce and was able to help me get what was best for myself and my children. She was always thinking about the long-term consequences of the legal choices.”
  • “While the reason for my need of an attorney (divorce) is emotional, Attorney Laborde has been very kind, and a pleasure to go through this with. She is patient with me, and she always gives me time to think of and ask more questions when we meet or speak on the phone. I had sent an email on a Saturday and she called me back on Sunday! Attorney Craig is very organized and detail oriented. Every meeting, including the first hearing with my husband and the Commissioner, she was calm and confident which helped my nerves and anxiety remain calm and confident. The office is very friendly as well. Again, the reason is unfortunate, but the experience with Attorney Laborde really has been excellent.”

Corey Mehlos | Criminal Attorney

737200-attorney-corey-mehlosAttorney Mehlos graduated with honors from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Wisconsin Law School. During law school, Attorney Mehlos participated in the Wisconsin Innocence Project for three semesters, handling 10 post-conviction homicide and assault cases. He received outstanding training and mentorship from his Innocent Project supervising attorneys, which include two Innocence Project lawyers who have worked on Steven Avery’s DNA-based exoneration from his sexual assault conviction and one of Mr. Avery’s current post-conviction defense attorneys. With the Innocence Project, Attorney Mehlos learned advanced DNA testing theory while working with Dr. Greg Hampikian, one of the nation’s leading DNA experts. Attorney Mehlos’ relentless investigation in a case was the driving factor in his client being released from prison 26 years before his scheduled release date despite three prior attorneys being unable to achieve that result. Prior to joining Kaehne, Cottle, Pasquale & Associates, S.C., Attorney Mehlos practiced law in Wisconsin in the areas of criminal defense. He has proven the innocence of a man facing three years in prison and extended supervision and succeeded in protecting the rights of community members in a lawsuit against a multi-million dollar corporation, the first case he tried as a lawyer.

Testimonials for Corey Mehlos

  • My son had a very serious charge being made against him and Corey went above and beyond anything we couldn’t even think about! He always called to check in on how not only my son but also how his father and I were doing too. Corey was in contact with other lawyers to get a little extra input to make our case even stronger and with the attention to not only the major, but also the small details that others wouldn’t have worried about, Corey spent a lot of time on. He was able to not only have that charge dismissed, but reached an agreement that my son was ok with! I truly believe if not for the time and patience of Corey, my son’s life would’ve been ruined! So, I would and have told everyone I know that if any legal issues were to come up, Corey IS the best person to hand on your team!
  • I cannot say enough great things about Attorney Corey Mehlos! He really listened to our situation and we could feel that he really cared. We went into his office so upset and confused, but by the time we left, we felt so much better and more at ease. He has a way of explaining things that anyone can understand & he makes sure you do understand. He answers all and any questions in such a timely matter as well. He is one excellent attorney that I would recommend with no hesitation. He is also very respectful, honest and down to earth. He is an all-around excellent attorney!!!
  • After looking around for an attorney while facing 5 felony charges I felt comfortable in his abilities after talking to him about my case. I am glad I did because Corey ended up negotiating a total of 17 felony charges for me. With his time and effort, I walked away with no felony charges. Some people would call that a miracle but I would say that is an excellent attorney working hard for his client. Furthermore, he really cared about me. I consider him a friend.
    Thanks Corey.
