Todd is a very knoweldgeable and highly effective trusts and estates attorney with great integrity. Todd did a great job of helping me update my estate planning documents ensuring that my young children would be protected and cared for in the event of my passing. All work was delivered as promised and Todd is always available to answer any follow up logistical questions. I highly recommend Todd to anyone looking to get their estate planning in order.
I was very nervous about setting up a trust for my wife and I.
I was afraid that the wrong lawyer would just be out to get money from me in any way possible and not worry about my best interest, or just go through the motions and give me a will that didn't protect my family.
Todd was very professional and walked us through the process. He took his time with us and explained the Truast in terms we understand. I am sure we have a Trust that will protect my family and the assets we've worked so hard to obtain.
Todd wrote several trust documents for my parents. His helpful and professional manner immediately calmed my anxious mother and father. When my father passed away Todd was always available via phone and e-mail to answer a multitude of my trust related questions. This help has continued, as needed and without any extra charges, for over a year. He gets my highest recommendation and also my great thanks for his excellent legal advice and support.
Todd prepared our will and trust. We were very pleased with his gentle demeanor and skillfull communications with us. He walked us through the process and then delievered on what he said he would do.

Originally, we began working with Todd 5-6 years ago but to this day, he continues to treat us, and help us, as if we just began working with him last week. Todd will return my phone call and consult me over the phone long after most other lawyers have gone home for the day. Definetely, beyond the call of duty!

We had the privilege of meeting Mr. Schmitz when my parents needed to update their trust. We found Mr. Schmitz to be extremely knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. we had many questions about dome Elder Law matters and found that not only was he able to answer our questions, but he always got back to us in a very timely manner.

Last year, my parents had their trust rewritten and we had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mr. Schmitz. I cannot say enough about the few times we met with him in person or over the phone. He was extremely personable and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an Elder Care attorney.

From the first time I met with Todd I could tell he was not only extremely knowledgeable in his field but more than willing to walk me through the trust process. Later it became necessary to enroll my husband in Medicaid and even though the rules had changed, Todd was more than capable of guiding me through and even more stressful journey. Todd's confidence in law issues made a very stressful experience a lot easier. Also knowing Todd is available 24/7 to answer frightening questions is very comforting.

We applied for Medicaid for my husband who was in a nursing home. After the application was filed, the state Department of Human Services changed the rules, but did not go through the normal rule-making process or give notice. Attorney Schmitz showed us the documentation of the state policy change and provided us with alternatives. Following his advice we were quickly able to then qualify for Medicaid. This was done in a way that we did not lose any more to the nursing home than I would have if the state had not chnaged the rules. And, the attorney did not charge me more to file a new Medicaid application or an appeal! Attorney Todd Schmitz is a very ethical attorney, did what he said he was going to do, and did not charge me more, even though he could have, and other lawyers probably would have. I understand others who did not hire this law firm were caught in the same DHS trap and are still going through the appeals process, and paying more and more legal fees to other attorneys. Attorney Schmitz qualified my husband for Medicaid and my case is resolved. This is a family-friendly firm and they work hard for you.
