Fights like hell for you
Stacey was my criminal defense attorney during the most difficult my life when I was facing multiple felonies. Throughout the entire process, I never doubted that Stacey was doing her best to get me the best result. She will fight for you when you need her to fight and she will go get a plea for you if that's what you want. In either case, she will work for you and will see to your best interests. I recommend hiring her for your civil or criminal cases!

Best of the best!
Stacey represented me in my divorce case recently. As someone who has been in the legal field and worked for attorneys for many years, I couldn't have been more impressed with Stacey's her legal expertise, her ability to communicate all of my options and things to consider in my divorce settlement, and the level of care she gave me. From my experience, she's not only an excellent attorney but a person of high moral character. She's the best!

Truly a class act
I hired Stacey at the beginning of this year and was found not guilty in my case at the end of July. Stacey knew my case forwards and backwards and I couldn't have been more proud that she was standing next to me in the most important moments of my life. Stacey has a brilliant mind and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She felt like more than my lawyer, she felt like a trusted friend.

Excellent
Stacey is an excellent Lawyer! She is the best lawyer I have ever met. She is so helpful and will fight for you until you get justice. She is more of a family than a lawyer. We could have not picked a better lawyer than her. I would highly recommend Stacey. If you are looking for a criminal lawyer, call her! She will help you with your case.

She saved me
Stacey did a fantastic job for me. I was falsely accused of a sex crime and she knew it. I was found not guilty because of her expertise on the matter. I called many lawyers before her and she was the first to tell me that she would fight for me and she did. Without her i would be another innocent person in jail for a crime they did not commet.

SO HAPPY I CHOSE STACEY
I can't put into words how much Stacey did for me. Hiring a lawyer is one of the last things I have ever thought I would need to do. Stacey was extremely comforting and helped me through a very difficult time. The minute I walked in the door she made me felt at ease. Then I couldn't believe how much she new about the law. I am so happy that I had Stacey on my side.

Schlimmer will work her tail off for you
I had a very messy 3 year tangle with a felony charge. Stacey knew the charge was bs and she stood up for my rights and we went all the way to a week long trial. She and Rachael took good care of me and I am forever grateful.

Divorce
Stacey did an awesome job with my divorce. I felt like she took an ugly situation and turned it around to my favor. She knows the law and how to handle difficult situations in the courtroom situations. I trusted her and she came through for me. She returned my calls and emails in a timely manner and kept me informed throughout the whole process. I would go back to Stacey in a heart beat for any of my legal needs.

Trustworthy
Mrs. Schlimmer has been our representation on a couple of occasions and has always done an outstanding job. She is very professional and very trustworthy with all of our affairs. I would highly recommend her and her staff for any legal needs.

Stacey is very knowledgeable
Stacey is not only very knowledgeable, but takes time to listen and understand and strategize best plan of action. She is straightforward and honest, and cares that you get the best outcome possible.

Divorce
Stacey has guided me through a very messy divorce. Her judicial system knowledge is second to none. I have been blown away by her ability to sense the situation and to show real foresight in how to handle difficult complications in an already tough legal battle. Calm and focused, she is a true leader.

Divorce, traffic and an ordinance violation...
I return to Stacey Schlimmer whenever i need representation. She has helped me with legal documents, represented me in court and is now guiding me through a divorce. She has a huge heart and is super capable.

not the best but she got things done.
stacey was probably the hardest lawyer to get a hold of, and i always felt like i was unprepared for court. did she get things done? yes! the court ruled more in our favor when it came down to our son but i always felt panicked when it came to right before court and not being able to get in touch with her in between the times was worse. she did a flat rate for our case but again a flat rate instead of an hourly is nice IF you can actually get a hold of your lawyer. i felt as if we paid her too much for too little of her time. she basically just showed up to court and told us five mins before we went in what she had done...

DO NOT HIRE HER
She took my money and ran. She would not return phone calls, emails, messages. She missed an emergency hearing and will not return my retainer after doing NO work on my behalf. She is exactly what you do not want from an attorney.

Waste of money
Hired Stacy two years ago to handle my divorce. Thought Stacy was doing a great job because we seemed to win. Fast forward two years and tens of thousands of dollars later and Stacy forgets to file documents and doesn't respond to emails from the other attorneys. Ran away from her as soon as I realized how bad she really was. Was never prepared for court and seemed lost at times

Do not hire her for sex offenses.
On the outset, I'll admit that Stacey corrected an error that wrongfully placed me on lifetime parole. At that time, I was impressed by her. I was later charged with a sex crime and my mother spent $10,000 she couldn't afford to hire her. She never once even visited me in jail and blew through the money. She prepared a sloppy cut and paste brief that she had previously worked on for a different client concerning the admissabilitu of a prior. Any lawyer would have done as well. She then told my mother that the 10 grand was just for the prelim and that she needed another 10 grand! Her assistant really pressured my mom. The case was eventually dismissed by a public defender. I think Stacey is one of many attorneys who pride themselves on sticking it to sex offense cases. She is intelligent and knows the law adequately, but has an exaggerated sense of her skill set. I'd strongly dissuade anyone facing a sex offense from hiring her. And for non-sex offenses, I'm sure she will try her best to nickle and dime you too. Money grubbers tend not to care about the subject matter when it comes to their money grubbing.

0 stars
I would leave 0 stars if I could. Stacey stole my money. She received half of her retainer, but my case was dropped a day later... she performed no work. Calls, emails, visits were all ignored and now I'm out almost $1000 because she stole it. Unbelievable.

Disappointed
Stacy never took the time to understand my particular case, I felt we were very unprepared for court. She looked flustered. I never felt she was working for me. Lost documents, little explanation, no answers...Schlimmer Law made my divorce worse.

DIVORCE
Mrs. Schlimmer, did a very poor job with my divorce did not follow through with paper work cause lot of harm and hardships to myself and family. Sent other cases to other people home with my paperwork. Maybe easy case like tickets she maybe good at but when comes to getting her head into it she is not good.
