COMPASSIONATE, CONFIDENT, RESULTS ORIENTED

The founder of the Law Offices of John Schmidt & Associates PLLC, John has a personal devotion to help struggling families. The happiness and welfare of clients are extremely important to John, which is why he stresses that clients come to healthy solutions in their cases.

 

John grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and put himself through college and graduate school at the University of Kentucky. Later, he completed the Six Six Sigma Green and Lean programs at Villanova University and worked as a special education teacher, prosecutor, turn-around executive and consultant before going  into private practice.

 

He is very active with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other charities, which have come to influence his view on how he practices law. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes mucus to be thicker than normal. The thicker mucus causes issues in the pancreas, lungs and digestive tract. However, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made great strides so those with the condition can live longer, healthier and more active lives.

Divorce
I had a previous lawyer for 2 years that couldn't get my divorce finalized. I hired John Schmidt as my divorce lawyer and in a total of 3 weeks he is getting it done. He is amazing!!! I will continue to use him as my lawyer in the future and would recommend him to anyone that is going through a divorce!
Response from John Schmidt February 11, 2019

Six year client, will always return to John Schmidt
Very professional, yet laid back. If you prefer someone you can be yourself with, John is your guy. I’ve used his services for divorce and for will/POA/healthcare POA and each time he is efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. I appreciate having him on my side!

I have known John for three decades. He is an excellent attorney, and even better person. You would be hard pressed to find a family law attorney with more knowledge and experience, but who is also as affordable as John.

Cps case against my ex husband
John was great and awesome in the court room. He kept me informed and if I had questions he quickly answered them. I never had to wait a period of time to talk or discuss something with him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone for custody or CPS case.
