So happy .....
So happy to be able to check "get new wills" off the "to do" list. My husband and I had wills drawn up about 30 years ago when the kids we young (and we were too!). Needless to say many things have changed since then I knew the old wills were outdated but never seemed to get around to doing anything about it. A quick email to Mr. Schwemmer changed all that. Drafting, and filing the new documents, was easy and painless with with his guidance.

The best choice!
Justin represented me for an important personal matter and I could not have been more fortunate. He made me feel like I was his only client. With diligence and fervor, he handled my case never missing a step. Dedicated to his work and informing me every step of the way with an outstanding attention to detail, exploring all options and leaving me feeling supported and confident. After my experience with him I know that I have someone I can trust to represent me and produce results. Worry free.

Last Minute Help
I've known Mr. Schwemmer since 2008. I've always regarded him as a very knowledgeable, and kind person. I was always welcome to ask him questions. In late December, I was leaving my job. The day I told my boss when my last day was, my boss told me that I had to pay a fine, and lawyer bill from an incident that I had caused. I panicked. I did not make enough to be able to pay such money, and I didn't have anything saved up. After communicating with my family, I was told I should make sure I was legally obligated to do so, just in case. I turned to Mr. Schwemmer for advice. I didn't know who else to turn to. I'm glad I talked to him. He was very attentive to my situation, and asked a lot of questions. He knew to get all the facts first. He was quick, and informative. He helped me even when it wasn't in his area of expertise. He made sure to cross-reference his information, and he gave me quotes of the information for my own use. What impressed me most was that he helped me even though he knew we would not gain anything from it, other than my deepest thanks.
