Edward has helped us with 2 different cases over the years. My husband and I had originally chosen a local "bankruptcy farm" that ended up costing us an absurd amount of money each month. We couldn't keep up and the lawyer basically threw up his hands and said that there was nothing he could do then. My brother recommended Ed and he took the case and filed it the way it should have been done in the first place. When we ran into legal issues years later there was no doubt we were going to start with Ed. He genuinely cares about his clients and his sister who works the front desk is also super friendly and efficient. Ed is honest and up-front and knows the courts and bankruptcy laws like he was born practicing law. He is also good at "outside the box" thinking, coming up with solutions for things that other large firms would just ignore.

My bankruptcy was done in no time, and I didn't have any problems with my case.

After our father died we had Mr. Schimmel help us with the estate. Our father had many vehicles without titles and paper work that we unable to locate. Eddie helped us work through all the legalities and navigating our way through the paperwork. He responded to our questions in a timely manner. It was not a question who we would use when our mother passed.

During a difficult time, when my Husband passed. Mr. Schimmel was able to walk me through the Estate and Life Insurance jargon and set me up with necessary documents that a single parent should have in place, as far as Wills, POA and such. Ed is knowledgeable, kind and fair fees. I will definitely return and also recommend his services to anyone.
