Mike recently handled my Divorce case and I have to say that he was Fantastic. My case was fairly difficult and Mike navigated every step with ease, and confidence. It became particularly difficult at times as the attorney for my Ex would make completely inaccurate statements in court, and made accusations that were egregious at times. Mike knew when to respond, and most importantly when NOT to respond. He helped me stay strong, and offered me excellent direction on what documents I needed to provide to refute their allegations, he gave me easy deadlines to make, and was patient with me. Throughout the whole process, Mike demonstrated a great amount of Reason, when their side offered none at all. It was incredible as Mike laid out my case versus my ex's case - and Mike got me a settlement which includes A) A lump sum check for several thousand for the Buyout of our marital residence, B) my ex-wife has to pay me Child Support and Mike got me almost double what I was originally going to request, and C) Finally Mike also got me an agreement from their side that they will have to pay me half of a deferred compensation account my Ex had which will be another check to me in excess of $8 grand...... and Mike will absolutely represent me when it comes time to file that Qualified Domestic Relations Order. Mike and his Paralegals were very easy to communicate with, and quick to respond. (the office staff was great and very accommodating) and I would absolutely recommend Mike for someone going through a Divorce. Lastly was the cost and financial arrangement when I hired Mike. I was in a very tight position with finances when I started the Process (I Filed for Divorce against my spouse) Mike worked with me to set the retainer amount that worked, and allowed me a payment structure that took my needs into account (My needs and the needs of my two Little ones as well) Mike did not break the bank as some Lawyers can. he was very affordable, and made the whole process easy from start to finish. There is one word that sums up my experience working with Mike Schmitt - INCREDIBLE

Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.

Michael returned my first contact very quickly and met with me that day. He has been very responsive so far and his rates are so reasonable it just didn't make sense not to use a lawyer for my child support case. I am very happy so far.

Mike Schmitt is experienced, perceptive, and knows how to work within the system quite well. He is responsive to your needs and questions and is available via text, email and phone. He gave me a great rate and we agreed upon a payment plan that worked well for the both of us. In addition, he did not disappoint during the court process and I was happy with the end result. I highly recommend him!

What happened to me in court with Mike Schmitt by my side would have happened if I went at it alone, the end result was I was tied to child support enforcement and was ordered to pay back child support. First off, the girl had been alienating me from the baby since his birth, he was 5 by the time we were in court, I had paid this woman money each week without knowledge that he was my son. The opposing lawyer and her client blatantly lied and said I never paid any child support, I had receipts sitting on the table for everyone to review. Mike hardly said a word, The magistrate said it was illegal for her to look at my receipts, (would someone please tell me where this written) and so the lie that I never paid stayed. Mike and opposing lawyer were too friendly in hallway as they discussed how much more money I was going to send this woman for a child she had been alienating me from, this woman has been pregnant 4 times by 4 different men. Mike misplaced my money order for a $1000 and found it in the bottom of is yellow envelope, opposing lawyer said, "Making that much money that you don't know where you put your money" I am being hung out to dry and they are being friendly about how much money they are making. I paid $2000 to be tied to child support enforcement and to pay back child support. I could have received that on my own. I went the custody case alone, I was granted 6 hours on Saturday, seems like the money the woman gets is more important than the quality of time the child gets with the father. This woman pulled the 6 hours of visiting time that was written in the court order out from under me and violates the court order, and till this day is still violating this court order. I am frustrated to no end of how well this scam works. In my humble opinion, I think the lawyers are all friends with one another and also friends with the judges, but they put on a dog and pony show in court, the end result is they make $200 plus an hour. When someone such as myself proves I was paying money and three grown adults (Magistrate, opposing lawyer, Mike Schmitt) play this game that those receipts don't count, and then there is a blatant lie that no money was ever paid, plus the woman does not want me near the child because she set me up so she could be a mother all to herself, something is seriously wrong with the system. There is no way I could possibly win or get justice. This was a lose lose proposition for me and continues to be a lose lose proposition. But the girl and the two lawyers made out very well. My 11 year old son struggles in life because he is fatherless, but the opposing lawyer sees this as a victory because she makes $200 an hour to keep good Dads out of the children's lives. Mike you owe me a phone call and explain to me what went wrong? where is this law written that this Magistrate would lose her job if she saw I was a stand up Dad, I even offered the girl a ring on the night she said she was pregnant. I feel I am owed something.

Contacted the office for an inquiry related to my case. He was extremely rude!! Wanted to know if I'd need legal counsel or what my options were. After a very brief conversation if I were looking to hire an attorney for my case (which I'm still unclear if I need) It would not be this guy!
