I hired Attorney, James W. Schmehl, after my Attorney withdrew from my case when it became quite complicated and demanded considerable lawyering capabilities. I found a true exemplar of discriminating intellect combined with a compassionate heart. These ideals are hard to come by, but are worth seeking out. Attorney Schmehl fearlessly addressed every legal hazard, and he advocated remedies that were both relevant and pertinent to my situation.
My Case involved a very complex land easement/right-of-way issue that was expressed in my Warranty Deed's legal description; however, my access was blocked and denied by an adjacent land owner. This "Land-locking" of my property caused great duress and financial hardship to me.
In this arduous, long-fought dispute, Attorney James Schmehl's virtuous dedication, drive and determination were effective in restraining, rejecting and removing distorted, untenable and false information from being allowed as valid or as legally binding in a court of Law. Each Motion that was presented was judged accurately with an in-depth review of all the documents in accordance with the evidence. Attorney Schmehl anchored legal theory with results based upon Truth and Justice. He governed his actions with the intent of attaining these very same principles.
Mr. Schmehl brought not only analytical expertise to the table, but also statutory knowledge and experience so necessary for a successful outcome. Truly, I had found that the labyrinths of Law require a capable, caring and qualified expert. A Lawyer who is able to protect and guide one aright under the canopy of Truth, Justice and Fairness to which all of us are entitled. This kind of an Attorney safeguards a person's life and liberty, as wells as one's assets. He is indispensable. James Schmehl is this kind of Lawyer.
Lawsuit are constantly changing, and challenging circumstances invariably arise. Mr. Schmehl met these claims and confrontations with re-newed efforts and acted in readiness wisely, promptly and properly. One's rights can easily be trampled, eclipsed or misled by specious, deceptive wording or by fraudulent Motions, especially when a person has meager funds with which to fight injustice or unethical claims. Any Lawsuit is daunting without a competent, trustworthy Attorney by your side very step of the way.
Attorney James. W. Schmehl championed my Cause and he ennobled my Case. He is a genuine warrior with armor of wisdom and dignity, plus he is undeniably a force to be reckoned with inside the battlefield of a courtroom before a Judge. In my case, he deftly dismantled opposing Counselor's arguments and motions, and appropriately exposed opposing party's attempt at influencing public servants/officials in Government Offices in the State of Colorado as well as Federal officials at the BLM.
Mr. Schmehl brought to light and proved during the Evidentiary Hearing before the Judge, that egregious acts had taken place such as: falsifying documents, lying to material facts, as well as conspiracy with another in an attempt to make my Warranty Deed's legal description null and void, thusly forever changing the significant, legal weight of this said Deed. My Attorney also discredited a witness and revoked this man's authority as an agent in my case. Bad Faith was revealed, Breach of Contract unmasked, and lack of credibility laid open. Notable and vital to my Case was this Attorney's ability to deliver the facts substantially and thoroughly. He accomplished this nonpareil.
I unreservedly recommend Attorney James W. Schmehl to anyone who is in need of a "real" Lawyer. I am eternally grateful to be his client.

James Schmehl has been my attorney for several years. His extensive knowledge in the field of which he was hired is exceptional. He returns phone calls and emails very timely, even on nights and weekends. He's always kept me up-to-date with everything involving my case. My particular case has been on-going for over 3 years, and even in my times of financial difficulty, Mr. Schmehl has been sympathetic to fees that are associated with any court proceedings and very willing to work with a client through the rough times. My ex has sent him countless, inappropriate emails of which, obviously, I was not charged for. Mr. Schmehl's integrity compounded with morality and knowledge of family law equal a fantastic combination that I'm lucky to have found in an attorney. He's always looked out for the best interest of not just myself, but more importantly, my child.
My ex has been extremely upset with the rulings set by the judge after countless motions. I believe my ex has gone to extensive lengths in retaliation, including bad-mouthing my attorney on social media and other internet sites. Reading through some of these reviews, it's apparent that my ex has chosen to exude vindictive and cruel, not to mention false information towards Mr. Schmehl. My ex is extremely upset that as a result of his habitual non-compliance with the judge's orders, this case has to be dragged out even further. His immaturity and blatant disrespect for the law has resulted in his retaliation, not only towards me, but a fine attorney. It's unfortunate that a man such as my ex, is willing to go to such lengths to try to intimidate an attorney, an officer of the court, because he doesn't think 'the judge is being fair'.
Again, Mr. Schmehl has his client's best interests at heart, is sympathetic to financial hardships, and works diligently to not only advise his clients well of the legality of each motion, response, hearings, possible outcomes, but gets to know each client and their families as well.
If you are looking for an attorney who is compassionate, moral, realistic, very knowledgable and compassionate, James Schmehl should be your choice. I urge anyone to see for themselves everything this attorney has to offer, on so many levels, and ignore reviews that are negative.
Family law is very difficult and emotional, and it's important to be able to trust the attorney you choose to represent you. After just one consultation with Mr. Schmehl, I was convinced he'd provide all the necessities for a successful case, and years later, I was absolutely correct!

Have on several occasions been represented by Mr. Schmehl and each time he handled the case professionally and knowledgeably and effectively. He seems honest and able to actually represent a client. He seems to be a person of integrity and worthy of trust. Good lawyer, and a good human being.
For the record, I made the mistake in the 90's of going with a more experienced attorney on a critical case...and it was a disaster. That attorney was pretty much the opposite, and got paid win or lose. Lesson I learned the hard way is that not all attorneys are equal.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
