Without Joe...it would have been a painful, lengthy process

"In the challenging navigation of the divorce process, Joe leads his clients with fairness, compassion, honesty and truth. Without Joe and the amazing associates at Schmitz Law, it would have been a painful, lengthy process. Joe and his team are 5 stars, 10 out of 10, best of the best!"

His honesty and confidence from the beginning put us at ease.

"My husband and I came to Joe's office nervous, with a tough case that would change the future of our entire family. His honesty and confidence from the beginning put us at ease. His staff was quick to respond, kept us informed of every step of the process, and answered all questions promptly. Joe's performance in court blew us away. The case he presented was rock-solid, evidence heavy, to the point I almost felt bad for my defendant at times. This is a dream-team worthy attorney worth every penny."

I highly recommend Joe Schmitz and his firm!

"I highly recommend Joe Schmitz and his firm! I was out of the state working when I had in not so many words "my world come crashing down". Since I was away from home my wife called multiple law firms for assistance. Joe was not only the first to call back, but, called back and set up an immediate Zoom appointment to discuss the issues. I was being held to the fire and had been beaten down so much that I truly felt all was lost. During the first meeting Joe was very kind and professional. He made my wife and I feel extremely confident and also he made us feel as if we were important to him (he more than exceeded the latter). Joe met us face to face for the first time the day of court. He was confident but also very matter of fact. He always told us the truth and what negative outcomes we could face. Joe hit a home run that day and in a way saved my world. I can't say how grateful we are to have had the pleasure of having Joe and his staff (especially Rhonda) work for us. They both truly empathized with our situation and provided a soothing atmosphere whenever we needed it. Thank you Joe and Rhonda for everything, God Bless you both!"
