I hired Gayanne Schmid to help me navigate a tricky divorce. There were 3 business entities in play so I was very concerned going in. First off, she is very knowledgeable about the law. She helped me craft my filings in a well thought out way. She is very savvy about the different personalities involved in the case. My ex is on the narcissistic side so she took that into account. I noticed that she was able to accurately read and respond to the other players (opposing counsel and mediators) involved in my divorce as well. She knows how to create solutions in situations where egos and feelings are in play. I appreciated that she suggests ways to keep billing hours lower. She worked towards resolving my case in the quickest and the least expensive way. I was very happy with the outcome. I would recommend Gayanne to anyone, especially if there are special assets involved like real estate or businesses.

As an unmarried father fighting for visitation and custody of my daughter, I felt defeated and frustrated by the Utah family court, until I hired Attorney Gayanne K. Schmid. Atty. Schmid was my third family law attorney and immediately became 100% committed to the case. She quickly developed a game plan to help me achieve my end goal.
Atty. Schmid had a never give up attitude, even in the face of overwhelming odds against us. She worked tirelessly on the case and got the results I dreamed: full legal and physical custody.
Atty. Schmid has tremendous presence in the courtroom and understands the legal issues very well. She is both thorough and unrelenting. I say this not because she got me full custody, but I have significant trial experience of my own as both a prosecutor and defense attorney for over 10 years.
I will recommend her to anyone who is going through family law issues. There is no one more equipped to handle a ruthless and contentious custody situation and all of the unusual cure balls like Atty. Schmid did. If you want to win and have the case resolved so you can really go on with your life, use Atty. Gayanne K. Schmid.

I hired Gay as a domestic attorney for a very difficult domestic legal case. Her skills and expertise were key in a successful legal case for me. With years of experience in domestic law, Gay is a seasoned attorney with impressive court room skills. She is a very capable trial attorney and also, deals well with difficult negotiations. She doesn't back down from challenging situations, and will prove a great asset for anyone who needs legal representation.
