  • “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 new 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.”
