Excellent attorney who genuinely cares about her clients
Linda Schoonover has represented us twice, once in a juvenile dependency case and then in the legal custody case involving our grandson, the son of the the daugher involved in the dependency case. She has responded promptly to all questions, given correct advice, and prepared us for the court hearing. She has now been elected to serve on the Circuit Court and will do an excellent job.

Family Law Case
Linda and her staff did a great job keeping me informed and advising me of my legal rights. She always made an effort to smooth out matters with opposing council as best as she could during a tumultuous divorce, preventing an expensive litigation. She was, however, prepared and qualified to litigate if necessary, which I think really helps to settle a case with a reasonable outcome. I would definitely recommend Linda and her staff to my friends and relatives.

Linda Schoonover clearly & consistently demonstrates a superior proficiency in all legal matters. She has always assisted us in a prompt, courteous manner. She is highly cooperative, responsive and flexible. She creates an atmosphere of open communication..honest, above board, fair and straightforward. Linda and her staff have been, over the last 13 years, extremely effective and innovative in analyzing several of our complex legal issues, and determining an appropriate course of action. Both Linda and her staff have always demonstrated a knowledge in all legal areas that normally can be gained only through extensive experience-which they have.

Not your best lawyer
Schoonover charges rediculous rates for what she accomplishes. In my case she recommended giving the house that was almost paid off and paying permenent alimony. 16 year marraige with a women who was 35 at time of divorce. She filed for divorce and there was not cheating or abuse. If she lived to 85, that's 50 years of alimony for a 16 year marriage. Plus the home. I ended up having to hire another attorney. The attorney that represented my x walked all over Schoonover. Don't waiste your money.

Response from Linda Schoonover December 11, 2009
Mr. Tim retained us to do a collaborative divorce not a contested divorce. Part of the collaborative process is working together with the opposing counsel with regard to disclosure. When his settlement proposal was rejected because of his unwillingness to disclose information he became upset. With regard to his comment that we suggested that he leave his Wife the home, the parties had two properties; a beach home and a home in town. The Wife was at the beach home and I suggested she remain there as part of equitable distribution. As far as the fees, he wrote this comment before he received the $2,000 in trust that was refunded to him.
