Excellent Service
Rhonda and her team were very helpful in getting us thru this process. The ladies in the office would answer any questions that I would have and helped figure out some things that I needed to find. I will definitely use Rhonda in the future if needed.

Rhonda
I would highly recommend Rhonda. Her office has helped me tremendously! Explains everything about the process, step by step. Helps me to understand what I need to do to make my bankruptcy go smooth. I was honest with her, and she was easy to work with. I didn't just hire a lawyer, but I gained a wonderful acquaintance!

Respectful, honest, determined, and easy to work with!!
I hired Rhonda as my divorce attorney. My divorce was a long, vengeful, and frustrating attack on me so I truly have to commend Rhonda for always keeping her cool, getting things done, and keeping me focused throughout the whole process. Her office staff was amazing as well; very compassionate, great communication, and extremely hard working. Thank you so much Rhonda and Jenny for all your hard work!! I apprectiate it more than words can say!!

Highly recommended! Kind, fair and honest
Rhonda and her staff were hands down amazing from the first time I called the office earlier this year. I was very nervous, scared and anxious about the court custody process. Jen was wonderful at making me feel like I was doing the right thing and everyone was very knowledgeable and always informed me every step of the way. Rhonda specializes in domestic violence custody cases and it shows. She is wonderful!

Quick, Efficient, Effective!!
I had been trying for almost two years to get a custody order for my daughter, but there was always something in the way preventing any progress. I hired Ms. Werner. We went to court, and again, they tried to delay and reschedule, but Ms. Werner wouldn't let that happen. Everything that needed to be accomplished was done in that one court hearing. Efficient, to the point....Very Very Pleased!!

I have worked with Rhonda on and off for over 5 years. Working with Rhonda and her office has been great. Her knowledge and advice helped prepare me to get through my custody battles with great results. She also helped me get money that was owed to me. Highly recommended!!

Thank you!
I hired Atty Werner Schultz for a bankruptcy. It ended up to be far more involved than I would have ever imagined. She went above and beyond to research what information I needed and explain it in terms I could understand. Obtaining this information prevented the bankruptcy court from taking a retirement fund I had received in a previous divorce. Without her hard work I would have lost it all. Thank you!

Awesome Attorney
Rhonda is very professional at what she does. She has helped us in several situations. She first helped with legal guardianship and then bankruptcy. Now Rhonda is helping us with the adoption process. She truly has your concerns at heart and listens to what you are needing. She is easy to talk to and very efficient. Also her staff make it a point to address you by name. This law office is top notch and will continue to use as necessary.

Great Divorce Lawyer!
Attorney Werner Schultz represented me in my divorce. She is a very caring, honest, ethical attorney. I was kept well-informed throughout my entire case and she was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the divorce. Attorney Werner Schultz is straight-forward and does not sugar-coat the facts. I was given a realistic picture of my case. When we went to court, Attorney Werner Schultz was prepared and she did an excellent job preparing me for what to expect. I highly recommend Attorney Werner Schultz!

Awesome Bankruptcy Attorney!
I hired Rhonda to do my bankruptcy recently and I highly recommend her. She was very professional, knowledgable, approachable and was able to timely file my bankruptcy. Her support staff was very easy to work with and helpful.

Divorced Mother
Rhonda handled my case and was the attorney who finally was able to settle our dispute. Rhonda is level-headed and all about conflict resolution rather than conflict continuance. If you want a lawyer who cares more about the mental health of your children than making money off you, she is the attorney for you. PS. She doesn't get pushed around or intimidated by other attorneys, she just wants what is best for the children of the clients she represents.

Not recommended if your a father
Rhonda did little as possible for my custody battle for my son , refused to address any police reports filed on the other party when given this law office video proof, she helped hide me from knowing my son was already baptized, chose not to fight for my rights to my son , sent interrogatories without me being able to see prior, which other party refused to answer and hurt me and my son from having a quality life and placement, also refused to discuss billing issues, abused my retainer and extra to benefit the other party , beyond heartbreaking

Response from Rhonda Schultz April 26, 2022
I am saddened to hear this criticism. Due to attorney client confidentiality rules I cannot comment regarding any specific case. I can say that as a general rule I fight hard for my clients in every case. I communicate options to my clients about prospective outcomes in court and how to proceed with their case. I involve my clients in the process so that they have an active say in how things are progressing. People often do not understand the rules of evidence or the court process, but I do. Even if I explain that process some people do not want to follow my advice or do not understand despite my best efforts to inform. That is their choice, but there are consequences for that. The evidence rules are complicated and often times are not common sense rules and instead rules that serve the legal process, so they may appear unfair but this is the system within which we must work. I always have a retainer agreement with clients that spells out what they will be charged for. My staff and I often remind people to consolidate their questions and concerns to avoid being charged for too much time spent on their case. Sometimes this cannot be avoided depending on the issues. My fees are directly related to the amount of time I spend working on each case. Some are more expensive due to more needs or demands of a client. My staff and I are always willing to help people understand my invoices and the billing process - I have yet to find a legal billing system that is not complicated to understand. Nevertheless, we spend a great deal of time explaining to clients why certain items are billed as shown on their invoice. I cannot guarantee any specific outcome on any case and sometimes things do not go the way the client wants or as I want, but I am there every step of the way. I do not hide information from my clients and share all communications between opposing counsel, the Court and witnesses with my clients so they are fully informed.

There are better attorney's for your money that you will pay for her.
Rhonda completely dropped the ball in my case. What should have been a "slam dunk" for ANY attorney turned into a nightmare and has only cost me a lot of money and even more time. I was referred to her through family recommendations which I regret. I had to fire her after my last court hearing because she was fumbling over the evidence pertaining to the custody of my son which I now lost. She allowed my mother to take the stand and made her look like a fool. The first words out of her mouth when we walked out of branch 1 after court was "now I'm tripling retainer and my fees" under the assumption, that the mother of my child would have to pay for them eventually, which was not the case what so ever! Would not recommend to anyone for family law!

I make every effort to work with client's and get the best outcome possible. I play one role in the larger Court system and cannot guarantee any outcome. I am there for my client's no matter what the outcome and offer options to respond, even when the outcome is not what you want.

Review Everything in a Decree!!
Rhonda was very organized at gathering all proper paperwork together for medation, but failed to look out for 2 kids and my best interest! Alot more needed to be covered in detail that gave my Ex the upper hand! I was not aware of what needed to be done after a divorce in a timely manner, so therefore I lost some much needed benefits! QDRO's are very important, just make sure they are done before the member retires, and your lawyer does what you ask them to do, its your QDRO!!

Response from Rhonda Schultz September 26, 2018
I always review any agreement with my client's before the agreement is signed. I answer questions and will address concerns before an agreement is signed and finalized. I work hard to make sure my client's understand completely what they are signing and what compromises they may have made in order to enter into the agreement. Sometimes issues arise that were not anticipated at the time of signing an agreement. While I try my best to anticipate every outcome, I cannot foresee every future event and I apologize that you felt I missed something.
