Attorney Schlichter could argue any side of any given issue against an impenetrable brick wall and not only prevail, but inevitably cause the brick wall to subsequently reconsider its otherwise successful career in law. All kidding aside, while education and experience cannot be discounted, values, principles and consistency thereof and adherence thereto make an already good litigator exceptional. Mr. Schlichter has these qualities in spades. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.
