Mr Schupp took my case just over a year ago, starting with my need for defense of wrongfully issued ex-parte protection order, and representation for the custody war that would follow.
On our initial meeting and consultation, he was very professional, and thoroughly examined all the evidence I had on hand regarding my case. He outlined appropriate strategies for us to follow, and advised me on exactly what to do, and more importantly, what not to do.
Upon paying the retainer, he was willing to work with me on making payments for the remainder of the balance owed, which I'm so - so grateful for, because that's the only way I could possibly obtain council in this matter, which has completely upended my entire existence.
With his representation, and I'm assuming my ex's complete lack of any evidence of wrongdoing on my part, she was compelled to drop the protection order, which was dismissed, unfortunately w/o prejudice, meaning she'd threaten to have it reinstated any time she felt displeased with anything I did or said.
We are still fighting the good fight for custody of my child, and for me to at least be allowed to have visitation. Covid has severely delayed many aspects of the case. Each day separated from my child is sheer agony, and The court system is moving so slowly, I'm sure compounded by covid.
However Mr Schupp has been there for me every step of the way. At times when I was just inconsolably crying and felt like I was loosing my mind, he personally called me, and stayed on the phone talking me down, and assuring me that I just have to hold on, that we'll get through this, not to do anything irrational, and that he would be right there with me every step of the way. This scenario arose more times than I can count, and each time, he was there to talk me down, and provide me with much need comfort and reassurances.
I've NEVER heard of any lawyer going to the lengths he has to be there FOR ME in my greatest times of need and despair.
He is always very punctual in returning emails and phone calls, once even emailing me while he was on vacation where in he'd told me he'd be unreachable over that period of time.
I would not hesitate for one second to hire Mr Schupp, for any legal matter that is in his scope of practice. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation.
To all the men out there(especially those, who like me, were victims of domestic abuse/violence), the system is set up in a way that's not necessarily going to work in our favor. Dont face it alone... Please dont face it alone, it will leave you a level of broken that one can't hardly fathom. Even with a great attorney, it is an absolute nightmare.
Mr Schupp is a top notch advocate, and I don't know what I would do or where i would be without his kindness, steadfast guidance, and leadership.
Tl;Dr: Mr Schupp is a wonderful lawyer. Honest, straight forward, hard working, punctual, and will diligently pursue your case to the best of his abilities. He communicates frequently with me, and always makes me feel as though I'm the most important client he has.
Thank you Mr Schupp, for all your hard work, I dont know where I'd be right now if not for your guidance and support. God bless you!!
