About me

Attorney Frederick P. Schoonmaker whose law office is located at 515 Glenview Avenue, Suite F, Wauwatosa WI 53226 (414-731-7900), has practiced family law since 2007 and has served with three prestigious family law firms. Mr. Schoonmaker believes that divorce is a last resort and always explores the prospects for reconciliation. If a divorce is the only answer, every effort is made to conduct the proceedings in a civilized, non-contentious fashion. Mr. Schoonmaker is experienced in separation, divorce, custody issues, property division, alimony, support, post dissolution matters, and the tax impact of all financial issues. He makes a concerted effort to maintain good relationships between both parents and their children. In recent cases, he has successfully negotiated third party visitation rights and handled the dissolution of a 31 year relationship that never resulted in marriage. He has handled numerous divorce cases and restraining orders, and is eligible to serve as a Guardian ad Litem for children in divorce cases in Milwaukee County. Mr. Schoonmaker graduated with a B.A. from Bucknell University, a Masters of Letters from St. Andrews University in Scotland, and a J.D. from Seton Hall Law School. He lives with his wife, a graduate of Marquette, in Wauwatosa.
