  • Steven Greg Wenzel

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Karl on and off for 10 years. Generally, the pattern is that he has handled a commercial real estate transaction which has later become the subject of litigation that I am handling. The underlying transactions have been competently handled in each such matter. The transactions are well documented, the documents are prepared in conformance with the state of the law and the clients for whom the transactions were accomplished report a very favorable relationship with Karl.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Karl Schmitz on a number of matters over the years. I have found him to be very knowledgeable in real estate law and a number of other ancillary areas of the law. Mr. Schmitz applies a very practical approach to transactional matters and is adept at bringing transactions to a successful close. Importantly, Mr. Schmitz always acts in accordance with the highest ethical standards. I strongly endorse Mr. Schmitz.
