Almost an ugly divorce
My divorce had become extremely messy. Dean stepped in for another lawyer and now my ex-husband is paying exactly what he should! Dean was a pleasure!

Top lawyer in the field, I owe him my freedom!
Dean represented me for a serious drug distribution case. Somehow he got the prosecutor to come off the Brimage mandatory sentencing guidelines and kept me out of jail. Thanks Mr. Schneider!! You're the best!

Mr. Schneider is the best criminal defense attorney around!
Mr. Schneider handled a very serious drug possession and distribution case for me at the end of 2014. I was looking at State Prison time, he was able to get the results of the illegal search by the cops suppressed. We won the case, he helped me find treatment and I am healthier and happier today than I have been in years. Thanks Mr. Schneider!!

Mr. Schneider was my criminal defense lawyer and helped me with my divorce, he is very good man and lawyer
in 2012 I got inton some serious trouble and Mr. Schneider filed motions for me and the case was dismissed, unfortunately, I got divorced later and he helped me with this too. He is a good man and an even better lawyer. I have never felt so comfortable about going to court in my whole life. I have recommended him to many people since 2012 and all have thanked me for the recommend.

Dean helped me through the most serious trouble of my life...
Dean Schneider was my attorney for a very serious criminal matter. He was responsive the entire time and never left me wondering what was happening with my case. He even managed to get me two less years of time than I had bargained for, his sentencing argument was masterful. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. 5 STARS!
