Posted by a Child Custody client
This was my first time having to hire a lawyer and by far a bad experience. I contacted Mr. Schlegal regarding my case. I was giving my amount, I was told that as soon as I paid half i would be represented. The same day I did so. A week before my appearance I was told he could not represent me because my court date was closer than they thought. I asked for a refund and was told no. Finally after arguing and threatening to contact the news I was told I would be represented. The day off the appearance he did not come prepared and seemed to help the person I took to court more than myself. After I contacted his team and was told someone would contact me. No one ever did so I called and called. I left messages and finally got through to Crystal. After 5minutes on the phone she hung up on me and did not call back. I left it alone and figured what is done is done. It's been months and they have not filled my paperwork and when I called to ask questions I was told it was $150.00 a hour because my case is now closed. I have never felt robbed like this a day in my life. I would never ever use him again

Scott is honest, trustworthy and true champion of the law, in our initial meeting he was upfront and direct with me which is something rare to find with attorneys in family matters. They all say that you have a great case and that they can produce results, take your money and then you don't hear back from them or they drag their feet until you are up against a corner and they need more money to put out fires. Not the case with Scott he understood immediately that this was a sensitive matter to our family and he gave clear and realistic guidance. I wish I would have initially retained Scott and I hope if you are reading this review you learn from my costly mistake and retain Scott first. Having Scott on my case was the absolute best thing that has happened for me and my ex-wife as we are in the process of building a healthy co-parenting relationship. Scott delivered results in 2 months that a previous attorney could not deliver in 6 months and I am sure it would have been longer had I not made a change. I promise you that hiring the right guy for the job will make this process easier on all parties and Scott is the right attorney for that job. Attorney Schlegel will always have my referral and appreciation for what he accomplished in my case. In divorce with kids there are no victories but you can attempt to get the best results for the sake of the children and that is exactly what Scott produced. The office team was always attentive to my case and replied to my calls and emails in a timely manner. I never had communication issues with the office or his staff; everyone treated me with the upmost respect and professionalism. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication Scott you truly helped me in one of the most difficult situations of my life.

I contacted Scott with the intention of hiring an attorney. After thoroughly learning the facts of my situation, Scott provided advice which included not hiring an attorney. Clearly, Scott put my interests ahead of his billable hours.

I was very pleased with the free service consulting that Scott Schlegel of the Schlegel law firm provided
to me during the initial consultation. He gave me a solid hour of his time at no charge. I was pleased to utilize him for his service. In my opinion he is an aggressive articulate lawyer with a complete dedication towards his client. You will not be disappointed if you decide to utilize the service his office provides.
I wish his office continued success.

I hired Schlegel Law to represent me in my divorce and had an incredible experience. Scott was extremely knowledgable and his staff completely impressed me by working with me on a constant very personal level that always put my mind at ease. I also appreciated how his staff worked with me at a lower rate and I was only charged his hourly fee when Scott had to step in. When I was speaking directly with Scott, I was always amazed how fast he could answer every question of mine. Truly, his experience puts him well above the rest. After shopping around for family law attorneys, I found his rate more than acceptable compared to most and his retainer fees were one to two thousand less than almost every other firm I spoke to. I highly recommend Scott and his team to represent anyone having to go through a divorce.

My experience with this attorney revealed that all he is interested in is money. He has no interest in what he has promised the client he will do for the fee paid. He does not keep his word. He did not return phone calls, ever. There was no interaction with him once he received the money, except to send you a bill for more money, after a few contacts with his office staff. trying to get him to do what you hired him to do in the first place. A favorite tactic of this attorney is to attempt to scare you by threatening to withdraw if you refuse to pay more for unrendered services. In my opinion the practices of this attorney are unethical. If you want an experience from hell, hire Scott Schlegel, and afterwards you will have to hire someone else to complete what he was originally hired to do

I know I picked the right lawyer. He has consistently given me legal advice that is tempered with honesty and won't proceed with things even if they are legal when he knows generally it would be a waste of time or money in front of a judge. I don't feel as though i am being nickeled and dimed to death. I also feel I am getting bang for my buck. He listens to his clients which I have found to be a rare quality in a divorce lawyer. He is the utmost professional and when the other lawyer in our case was not being professional, he simply took me his client and left the room. He and his paralegal are very responsive, up to date on their knowledge, and keep me informed. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Schlegel as a lawyer and I have when people have turned to me for advice on who is good in the family law arena.

Mr. Schlegel is honest and professional. Although my divorce was amicable for the most part, I like the fact that Mr. Schlegel took the moral high ground and always considered the best interest of my children as well as myself.
I would recommend Mr. Schlegel to anyone.
