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.

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!
