Since the first time I spoke with you, you have been instrumental in helping me through this process. I attribute my remaining sanity to your ability to walk me through everything and helping to find comfort.
— Dane County OWI client

I waited until most of this was over to say a huge thanks to you both you (Paralegal Trish Meeker) and Corey. What excellent representation and kindness you showed my son. He is doing so well and a weight has lifted for him, and the rest of us as well. Much appreciate you both!
— Mother of Dane County Client

You (Paralegal Trish Meeker) and and Tim are THE BEST. This news was a HUGE relief. We cannot thank you and Tim enough!! Thank you both for your hard work, time and most of all: believing in him and his case.
— Wife of Dane County OWI/PAC Client (all charges dismissed before trial)

I’d like to thank you for helping me get past this. I want to let you know I got the job and started a month ago! On reflection I feel a profound new appreciation for what I have in life, and see this case as one of the most important lessons in my life. I work twice as hard now as I did before. You are doing excellent, valuable work changing the course of people’s lives for the better, and for that I express my sincere gratitude. Thank you.
— Dane County Client

I just wanted to thank you so much for your incredible work on my case. I am blown away by your success in defending me. Just as importantly, you went above and beyond what I expected in helping me through what was a very difficult and scary time in my life. In our face-to-face meetings, you managed to simultaneously relax me with your friendly demeanor and reassure me with your obvious knowledge of the law and entire judicial process. I plan on never being in this situation again, but if I do, you will be the first one I call.
— Dane County Client

You’ve been represented by a defense attorney who is among those I respect as much as anybody in the defense bar in this entire state; and he did a magnificent job of presenting a very difficult factual situation in as favorable a light as it could be and in marshalling you through this difficult legal process. You could not possibly have received finer representation.
— Wisconsin Circuit Court Judge

Attorney Verhoff, I really appreciate your hard work for the achievement. You are the most capable and smartest attorney I have met or worked with. I feet that I got a second life or another chance at my life. I am doing my best to contribute to our community and to be a better person. Please keep watching out for me.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me. Not only in your quality of work but your quality as a person. You were truly a caring and understanding person. You were there for me when I was not there for myself. Thank you for not giving up on me and helping me in these times. I hope to see you around and express my gratitude at a further level.

— Dane County Client

I wanted to personally thank you for handling this matter for my son. Not only did you obtain an excellent result but you handled it in a very professional manner. I certainly appreciate that both as a lawyer and a father. While I don’t have many occasions to recommend lawyers in Wisconsin, I will gladly give your name to anyone that I know needs your services in the Madison area...

Tim, thank you for your amazing work and support with my case. (My wife) and I have both greatly appreciated it. Nice to have a great lawyer to refer people to!
— Dane County Client

Tim, thank you for all you did for (client). He might not understand fully at this point in life the repercussions he would have faced if prosecuted, however, in five years when done with college he will look back and know you were a super hero by helping him. From the bottom of my heart — I thank you!!
— Parent of Dane County Client

Seriously, I cannot thank you enough, Tim, for not only your exceptional legal representation and for getting me the ‘best outcome possible’ — but for answering all my frantic concerns, endless emails, the countless times I wrote you for ‘further clarification’ - but, ESPECIALLY FOR YOUR MAJOR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND KEEPING ME ON A POSITIVE PATH!!
— Dane County Client

— Columbia County Client

Wanted to say thank you for all your help with (the client’s) legal situation. We appreciate you taking the time to meet with (the client) and for your follow-up with the DA. Your willingness to take personal time out to help a student without the financial means to secure counsel says a lot about who you are. Thanks again for your time and advice.
— Behalf of Dane County Client

You may not remember me but you were my attorney on a felony case two years ago. I just wanted to thank you for everything you did and helping me get my life back on track...I finished my probation and the felony [was] successfully expunged off my record and [I] am no longer a felon!
— Dane County Client

Mr. Verhoff, first and foremost, I would like to say thank you very much for representing me. I appreciate the time and effort you put in not only on the sanction part of the case, but also the dismissal of the charges against me. It is a big relief to have those charges dropped . . . You have been an excellent attorney, and you knew what you were doing. Hopefully, nothing bad will ever happen again. But if it does, let’s stay in touch. Again, thank you very much as it means so much to me and my family that both situations have been resolved.
— Dane County Client

Please let your staff and Tim, especially, know that we totally appreciate the quick response to a call for help and to be kind and straightforward to (client) in this situation. As I have said before, I sincerely hope we never meet again in a professional need situation, but I would never hesitate to refer Tim and your office to anyone else who has an issue to help with.
— Family Member of Dane County Client

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for all you did on (client’s) case. Thank you for talking to me, for listening to me cry my eyes out. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your hard work keeping him out of prison. I will be forever grateful.
— Behalf of Dane County Client

Thank you for the considerable work you put in researching, writing, and arguing (client’s) defense, as well as the multiple discussions you had with the DA and, no doubt, other court staff to prepare the way. He felt very well defended. I, too, want to thank you very much for your vigorous, straightforward defense of him. Several of our supporting friends also expressed appreciation of the content and the persistence of your arguments. (He) was probably not the easiest client for you to stand up for. We thank you.
— Dane County Client

I just wanted to thank you for taking the time out to help me with my situation. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am to have you for assistance. Again thank you for everything, and I will keep in touch.

— Sauk County Client

Tim, I just wanted to follow up with a heartfelt thanks for the time that you spent with me (and my daughter) educating us about the concerns that we had with respect to the arrest of an acquaintance of my daughter. Your willingness to take time on a Sunday afternoon was very appreciated and extremely helpful . . . I wanted you to know that the high regards lawyers in our office have for you is entirely justified, and of the incredibly positive impression that you made on me.
— Dane County Lawyer

Tim and Staff, I want to thank everyone for helping each step of the way! I appreciated having counsel by my side. Everything was fairly smooth, and I would recommend your law firm to anyone! It was definitely less anxiety filled when someone takes care of the legal end and knows what they are doing.
