Chris provided the needed guidance, and took care of the surrounding issues with this case. He is very detail oriented, and works hard to see things through. His advice is exactly what I needed in this case, and he helped me to be successful.

I was initially very impressed with Mr. Schmitt because he was obviously very honest. He let us know what he could and could not do to help us and did not try to persuade us to utilize his services for more than we actually needed. This was in contrast to our "opponent" whose attorney showed up for events for which our attorney told us he would be (and would have been) superfluous. He is definitely not the type to try to gouge his clients. This was a breath of fresh air, because we knew we weren't paying for services we did not need. This (the legal system) was a brand new arena for us, and we could easily have been taken advantage of. He is quite down to earth and conversed with us in a friendly, caring, yet professional way that made us feel at ease. However, he is committed to his clients and clearly not about to let his clients be walked on. He is very adept at explaining to the layperson how the legal system works and how to ethically get one's needs met within that system. We learned a lot from him and are very grateful for the services he provided and the subsequent results. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to cut through all the legal system BS and get the results you deserve.

Had previously hired for a shared custody agreement. Situation changed and I filed for full custody. Christopher was upfront about the realities of the case, including projected costs, as it progressed. I would suggest you follow-up with him frequently to keep the case moving forward. Outcome was positive and along expectations that were initially discussed. He is a competent lawyer and I intend to continue to use him going forward.

I am very pleased with the professional service I received from Christopher Schmitt. My issue was grandparent rights and Chris was very knowledgable about the laws in Ohio concerning this issue. Every question I had was answered and I felt very comfortable placing this issue in his hands. Chris was successful in getting my issue solved and I would highly recommend him for any family law issue. He cares about his clients.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Schmitt and I have worked against one another on a number of Family Law cases in Wayne County, Ohio. He is a good lawyer and works hard for his clients best interests. He is friendly and easy to work with, often helping to solve problems instead of create them. Do not hesitate to give him a call if you need legal advice or representation.
