I recently needed a lawyer for a criminal court case and i had the pleasure of working with Michael Schmitt. He was very knowledgeable with information pertaining to my case. He was courteous, prompt and treated me with respectful. He truly cared about my cases outcome and I would highly recommend Michael Schmitt to anyone looking for a lawyer. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and very grateful for his assistance. With out having Michael Schmitt i could have ruined my future, however with his help he put me on the right track and for that i am very thankful. The entire time Michael Schmitt kept me informed with what was going on and never made a decision with out my consent.

Michael represented me in a family court action. His services and responses to my questions timely and professional. I appreciated Michael's empathy towards my financial circumstances and willingness to work with me on a viable payment plan.

My divorce was finalized in December 2012. It, as you can imagine was a very rough time for me and my children. Mike was truly amazing throughout the whole process. Not only did he take care of us professionally, but during the course of the divorce, I lost my 16 year old son to a very rare form of Meningitis and Mike came to my house and called me numerous times to check on me and my daughter. Mike went far beyond the call of duty for us and it will never be forgotten. Mike fought hard for me and my children and we got great results. I thank God everyday for placing Mike in our lives. Not only is Mike a great Attorney, he is one of the finest people I know with the highest of moral values.

Michael and his team have been absolutely FANTASTIC. He has helped me since day one when I needed an attorney and has always been professional and so kind to my family and I. Whenever I hear friends or family needing assistance in the family law, I've always referred his name. His fees are VERY reasonable and always willing to help out in any way he can. He has helped me being a single mother and all and set-up a payment plan in the beginning and was so helpful since I've never been in that situation before. He is like family and always reassured me in any doubts I had going into court and felt like he was definitely a fighter for my son and I. I would recommend him to anyone in Rochester, NY. Thanks for all your help as always, Michael!!

Michael is an outstanding lawyer. He represented me in my divorce and was able to achieve the results I was looking for. He kept me calm before all the court appearances and was able to explain everything to me so that I could understand it. He is very responsive with both voice mail and email and I never felt like he was out of touch. Michael handled my case for a very reasonable rate and offered a payment plan if that was necessary.
I couldn't be happier with the results Michael Schmitt got for me in my divorce trial. I highly recommend Michael to anyone that needs a lawyer.

I hired Michael to handle a Family Court issue. After the initial meeting I was consistently asking questions and providing thoughts as I felt my case was not receiving the proper attention. His answers were always short and irrelevant. After nearly a year we lost as he failed to prove a case. Opposing Council crushed us. This mishandling has cost me and my family tens of thousands of dollars. It is obvious my best interests were not a priority. Michael lacked commitment, law knowledge and experience. Don’t make the mistake I did!
