About me

Experience as a lawyer combined with experience in sales, business, teaching and coaching help me to understand the varying needs of my clients whether my clients happen to be individuals or businesses. Graduating from law school with honors while beginning as a night student and working throughout my schooling provided me with training to balance the law with everyday reality that continues to apply as I advocate my clients' rights as their attorney.

  • Shane Richard Pariseau

    I have worked closely with Mr. Scholz on a number of complex legal matters. I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, highly professional and to aggressively represent his clients with integrity. I give him this endorsement without reservation.

  • Donald Wayne Werno

    John Scholz is on the short list of attorneys I trust to refer clients to when a client has a problem that my office does not handle. I have referred John more than one client and I have always received solid praise for the work that he has performed on their behalf. I would not hesitate to call John if I had a complex business problem, real estate matter or needed someone to help a client with a wrongful detainer action. John is the gold standard by which attorneys should be measured.
