Client Success Stories

This firm is exceptional! Professional, knowledgeable, great communication and easy to work with. Could not recommend them enough.

Adam R.

Case Type: Class B Felonies

I was pleased with Mr. Waterkotte’s personable manner and reasonable, competitive fee. Most of all, I was thrilled with his negotiation of the best plea bargain possible. The good result made a huge difference in my life. I could not be more pleased with the result.


Highly recommend Chris and his firm. They were very responsive and great at communicating every step of the way. I actually had originally hired a different attorney to begin with, however, I switched to Chris after speaking with him because he gave me full confidence that he would be able to get my charge reduced to something that won’t show on my record which he was able to do. I am glad I made the switch and I will definitely be using him again if needed.

Case dismissed, I could not have made a better decision in my choice. I care for my elderly parents and Mr. Combs literally saved my life.

Steven Waterkotte is a great negotiator. He is a straightforward and honest lawyer. He went above and beyond to help me. I was charged with a felony. The prosecutor wanted to give me 5 years probation and all kinds of scary stuff that would have messed up my life. Steve was able to get it to a misdemeanor and a fine. It was more than expected. I was so happy with the outcome of my case and I cannot thank Steve enough. Excellent professional service. Trustworthy and reliable. I highly recommend Steen Waterkotte and his firm to anyone that needs a good defense lawyer.


My fiance had a felony drug charge and Mr. Combs got it dismissed! There were no fines, court cost, nothing. He is loyal and a man of his word if your in need of a professional Attorney that gets the job done then Mr. Combs is definitely your man. My fiance has always went with a public defender until I found him Mr. Combs now he is the number one Attorney on his list. Since he has had Chris he has stayed out of jail and I'm pretty sure that's what we are all looking for. He is loyal professional, knowledgeable and a man of his word , He also keeps you updated on your case so your not always worrying about what is going on. Once again you nailed it Chris! Your amazing in everyway and have definitely made a difference in our lives and Ken and I are forever grateful for you. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Your deeply appreciated. Mr. Combs your still the man!! Wow just Wow!!!! 👍😁💯
