I have known Mr. Schnatmeier since he got out of law school. I have opposed him when he was a prosecutor and worked alongside him in multiple defendant criminal cases. Mr. Schnatmeier is always up on the law. I always see him reading the advance sheets whenever he has a free moment. Additionally, he is a hard working fighter for his clients who does a great job in the courtroom. He has always been thoroughly ethical and professional, both as a prosecutor and a defense lawyer.
