I first worked with Mr. Schmidt in 1993 and since then he has been extremely helpful to me in my tax practice and I have also recommended him to many of my clients. Charlie is thorough, attentive, and diligent in his legal work and also a very caring and supportive human being. He has been a wonderful resource for me and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
