Professional and Practical
I was in a car accident that left me with some long term physical impairments that were not well known immediately after the accident. Michael guided me through the insurance claim process allowing me to take the time necessary to understand the complete impact that the accident would have on my life. Michael interacted with me through all stages of the process. We were able to make a fair settlement with the insurance company which was a huge step in the mental part of the recovery process.

COMPLETELY SATISFIED!!
My husband was in a Tragic Fatality accident in 2014 and I didn't know which way to turn! I sought out for Attorney Counsel and Mr. Michael Schneider, was kind enough to sit in on the briefing and in turn I retained him to assist me with my case. He is very thorough and his staff worked diligently with him to answer all my questions and make me feel at ease while going through this difficult time. I recommend, Attorney Schneider to you if you need assistance, as he has a wealth of knowledge and WILL get the job done!

T-boned at an intersection
My truck was struck by a vehicle that ran a red light. I was referred to Mr. Schneider by a friend/co-worker and thank gods for that! Michael was an encyclopedia of law knowledge, friendly, and patient with me in my by then very stressed out state of mind. He was able to answer all of my questions clearly and concisely. To make a long story short, he was able to get me far above what I had wanted in my settlements with insurance companies and was great help in clearing up my medical bills. I would highly recommend Michael as an attorney and definitely utilize his services again if the occasion arose. - Peter

testimonial
Michael Schneider and his legal team were very helpful and wonderful to work with. My husband was in a very serious accident. It has been very overwhelming to me. Michael was supportive and honest. He was upfront with me and did not make false promises. We are so appreciative of all his work. He really took care of everything during such a difficult time for us. I know we would not have got the settlement we got without his help. Thank you Michael and legal team. E&E

The best in town
The insurance company wanted to give me very little for my case. Without Mike Schneider, I would not have received a settlement that made me feel fairly compensated.
