Worst lawyer I've ever seen. He couldn't care of the importance of my life at hand. Ignored my calls and emails. Very unresponsive. Took my money and didn't help me one bit. Very shady, did minimal work. He was clueless when speaking to him about my case after doing bare minimum research. I went to a different lawyer for same case and was night versus day better

Atty. Schonland provided me with defense of a speeding ticket. From the initial phone conversation it was clear that Atty. Schonland is knowledgeable and experienced with the law for this area. Atty. Schonland represented me at the clerk magistrate’s hearing and had a well prepared motion that referenced the facts and the law. The magistrate found against me but Atty. Schonland made all of the necessary arguments and it was clear that nothing would have convinced the magistrate that it was even possible I was not guilty. Atty. Schonland explained the pros and cons of the appeal to me and even encouraged me to settle, which of course would have meant less business for him. I decided to appeal. Atty. Schonland brought the motion to the appeal which was based on the facts and a little known law that he was aware of called the “No fix” law. The judge had no choice but to either grant the motion Atty. Schonland had prepared or ignore the law. Our motion was granted and thus I am in the clear. The outcome is that there is no fine and no points on my driving record. I am very pleased with Atty. Schonland.

I was so disapointed with this attorney. He was rude and unprepared. There are enough good attorney's out there to not get stuck with this one. Awful responsiveness and overall hot headed. Please heed my warning and go elsewhere for legal representation. My husband and I were disgusted with his manorisms and lack of concern for our legal matter. Just a horrible experience from start to finish.
