Easy to work with!
Mr. Schmittgens was very helpful with determining where to go and how to approach a case after a car accident. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, which is what you want in an attorney. He was open and honest with me in regards to my options and helped me find the best fit for my situation. He was a pleasure to work with and I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer!

Professional and hard working personal injury attorney
Rob is a hard working attorney who you can trust. He goes above and beyond to make sure that you understand what is going on in your case every step of the way. He was extremely knowledgeable of the laws pertaining to my case, and how to use the law to my advantage. He was so helpful to me during such a stressful time in my life and always promptly returned my phone calls. Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the results he helped me to obtain. I would recommend Rob to any person with a personal injury, workman's compensation or wrongful death claim.
