As the Successor Trustee of a trust having real estate co-owned by the trust and the son (who died intestate in Arkansas) of the initial trustee, I needed expert legal advice and assistance. From Alabama, I contacted Philip Schmidt by email and provided information for him to review. Based on other legal sources, I was anticipating large legal fees and Probate Court costs with the process taking considerable time
Phil reviewed the information and determined the least costly and most rapid approach to getting the son’s interest in the property transferred to his spouse followed by her deeding it to the trust. Phil kept me up-to-date on the developments throughout. Four weeks following our initial contact, he represented the trust's interests at the property sale closing. The qualities that I wanted and needed in a lawyer I found in Philip Schmidt: sound legal knowledge and expertise, integrity, patience, and an excellent communicator.
Highly competent, professional, dependable, trustworthy. Provides personal & caring services. Very good turn around time, gets the job done!! I have worked with Phil both on a corporate level and personal level with excellent results.

His advice is sound and he responds promptly to questions and emergent situations. He willingly provides referrals to his well-qualified partners for areas of the law in which they specialize. In addition to his considerable knowledge, I have complete confidence in his regard for confidentiality and ethical behavior.
Mr. Schmidt was very professional and displayed a very thourough knowledge of what I needed. He was on time for appointments and kept me updated through phone and emails during the process.
Mr. Schmidt has assisted me on several occasions with personal and business legal matters. He is my first call concerning all legal matters. I do highly recommend Mr.Schmidt's services. Mr. Schmidt communicates clearly, thoroughly and quickly. My friends and family have found tremendous benefit from the relationship Mr. Schmidt and I have built over the years. I have found him to be a very trusted resource, I know you will also.

Phil is an excellent estate and real estate attorney. He has helped my family on a number of issues including amendments and updates to a trust, real estate closing, and some minor business matters. I have always found Phil's knowledge and responsiveness to be excellent. When I need work in this area I don't even consider calling another attorney and whenever I have the opportunity to do so I refer Phil to friends and family and will continue to do so without hesitation.
I have known Phil for more than 10 years now. His professionalism, knowledge and character makes him very referrable. Phil has handled all my referrals in a very professional manner and I have satisified clients, family members or friends after they talk to Phil.
