I help clients and individuals to protect and defend their rights in the Metro Detroit Area.
I founded Schmidt Law Services to be able to work with individuals who find themselves in hard times. I know that most of the time, lawyers see clients during their darkest hours. It's my job to help those clients to address their concerns and find a resolution that meets their needs.
Because I know each case is different, I make sure to stay on top of changes in the law and, when necessary, push to make them.
When I am not working to defend the rights of my clients, I am a progressive Christian, and I am a worship leader for my church. I see my work as an attorney as an extension of my faith.
