Nice guy ready to hard for me

I only had supervised visitation for 3 hours every other Sunday when I first hired Mr. Schmitt. Without an attorney I was not protecting my rights in court and was being taken advantage of. Although I was clean off of drugs for 5 years I still had a hard time getting my joint custody back. Mr. Schmitt was the only attorney I contacted that personally called me back and gave me advice without scheduling an appointment. He seemed very genuine and he offered pricing that was very affordable. I hired Mr. Schmitt with a deposit and a monthly payment. During the pandemic he worked with me when I lost my job and when I didn’t have the money for my payments he told not to worry about and pay when I can. He still showed up to every court date early and seemed to have a fantastic relationship with the judge. He is very knowledgeable, articulate and diligent. I deeply believe the satisfaction of helping someone get their child back means more to him than the money he receives. After passing a hair follicle test that was demanded by my ex and her attorney they still tried to deny my overnight visit request. Not only did Mr. Schmitt see to it that I got my overnight visit. I also got an extra overnight Fri-Sun and a weekly dinner visit not supervised. Also this will be the first Christmas Eve overnight to Christmas I’ll have with my daughter in 8 years. I cannot thank Mr. Schmitt for what he has done for me, my daughter, her sisters and my fiancé. Now that I am back to work I plan on paying him every dollar that is owed and will recommend him every chance I get. I wish I could give him 10 stars because 5 just does no justice for the service he provides.

Completely professional. Due to my situation I turned to him as he was referred by others in his profession to handle a case like mine and now I see why. He is about consultation and not confrontation. About being prepared and proactive and is the best choice for matters like mine. I am always confident in court of his representation of me and my matters. He has earned my trust and respect in all of this and I highly recommend him no matter if it’s cut and dry or complex as my matters. He is definitely one of the top lawyers in the area. Even his staff is top notch. Kind, responsive, courtesy is the best I have ever experienced, informative… Definitely principles over personality. As emotional as matters can be he keeps it logic and sticks to the facts at hand. Definitely above and beyond 5 stars he deserves.

5 Stephanie via

Michael Schmitt is a great choice if you want something done fast, with no nonsense. He doesn’t rip you off with price either, and actually cares about his clients. He’s an example of someone who overdelivers- and it’s so refreshing to see.

5 Cip Traub via

When I met Mike I had just been shocked to find that my marriage was over and everything I had ever worked for was in jeopardy. I felt completely lost and overwhelmed with fear of the unknown. As soon as the meeting was over I felt the first sense of hope that I had felt in a few months. Mike explained to me what was really going to take place. He also advised me on how to conduct myself and prepare to generate the best possible outcome which is extremely important. He was responsive via phone, email and text whenever I needed him…even when I interrupted his family vacation (sorry Mike!).

Mike knows the law and he’s not afraid to stand up on behalf of his client to protect their rights even when he’s standing before the judge on your behalf. Thanks to Mike Schmitt I came out of this divorce in so much better shape than I could have ever allowed myself to think possible when I walked into his office for the first time feeling defeated. He is the only Divorce Attorney that I have and will continue to recommend to friends facing the same life changing experience.

“MONEY”… For everyone that is the first concern when hiring a lawyer. Mike listened to my situation and his first priority was giving me the help I needed. When it came to money he worked within my means and was extremely affordable especially considering the level of representation that he provides. To be fair, the results he delivered outweighed anything he charged me by a long margin.

Mike’s a no BS attorney and a no BS business man. You can go elsewhere and pay 4 times as much but you’re not going to get 4 times the representation… you’re just paying for another law firms billboards and radio commercials!

If you’re reading this, you’re probably in a tough spot and I remember that feeling. Do yourself a favor and set an appointment with Mike. For me it was literally the moment that I started the process of taking back control over my life and future. For me to take the time to write this long of a review…I hope you’ll recognize it’s because his help was so impactful on my life and I’m grateful.

5 Kathryn via

When I came into Michael Schmitt’s office, I was a near wreck. Divorce is hard enough, but worrying about your children is the worst feeling in the world. He organized my case with no problem; was extremely professional while still being a comforting person in a time of great stress. From the beginning he took my case in stride, and recognized how important my children were, and just what to do to maintain custody. He really went above in behind in representing me in all avenues, helping us achieve the desired end result. If I had to go back in time, the only change I would make is hiring him even sooner. Great lawyer, and I highly recommend him!

5 Tracy Dinkmeyer via

You will be rewarded for putting your faith in Mr. Schmitt. He is an excellent lawyer who will give you the best, and most practical legal advice. He excelled at handling my case. If you are in a custody situation and find yourself looking for an attorney that will understand the facts of your case, and are looking for someone who will fight for what is best for yourself and your child, Mr. Schmitt should be your choice.

5 Ashley via

This is my first time entering into the realm of NY legal proceedings. Walking into Michael Schmitt’s office I was extremely nervous and on edge. In the matter of minutes, I had my confidence and trust built up. To break down the jargon the court system uses is no small task, and I was able to learn more about what was going on and our plan of attack without having to do any outside exploration. Not only was I able to feel comfortable, and even though my case is on the smaller level of importance compared to charges other clients surely have faced, I felt as though my matters would be handled appropriately and given their due diligence- if not even more. To top it all of, he and his wife just welcomed a baby into the world, helping to increase the level of comfort and humanizing his role, if you will. In a time of stress, and with serious potential implications, you need to have a lawyer that you can trust to get the job done, and that you can also respect as a person outside of the legal degrees and titles. With Michael Schmitt, you get both of these important factors.

5 Sierra Breese via

Michael has helped me tremendously. I’ve been going through a divorce for over a year now and he’s be there every step of the way. If I needed to contact him out of business hours, he always answers right away or calls back in a timely manner. My divorce was and still is very stressful. He has kept me cool and calm the whole time. I’ve had a lot of anxiety that he took away. Very detailed and very relaxed person. Made me feel so much more confident than I was before I stepped into his office

5 Michelle via

When I went to Michael Schmitt’s office, I was a bit nervous that my child support case was too trivial to be treated with care. This was an example of just regular unpaid child support, nothing overwhelming or all-too-horrifying. Also, here I was going to see a lawyer about not receiving money- I was nervous I’d be paying more than it was worth.

A friend referred me to Mike’s office, and she didn’t let me down. Despite my case being “small” he gave it a great deal of time, care, and genuine effort. This was proven in the results- but even better was how I felt afterwords. I was able to land a top-notch attorney at an affordable rate that really took the time to care about my family and needs.

If you’re going through a case with child support and want results quickly, from someone who will pour his heart into your case, Michael Schmitt is the answer.

Michael and his staff were kind, compassionate, but professional and good at getting what I wanted in my settlement.

5 Chris via

When I received my latest traffic ticket, my license was in jeopardy of being suspended for a year. For someone who needs their license for their job, this was an incredibly stressful time. Michael Schmitt handled my case with no problem, he was completely calm from the beginning and took my case without any fear. It really helped to calm me down, and go into proceedings confident. Turns out there was nothing to worry about, his experience really pulled through here and he was able to save the day. Definitely recommend him to anyone going through a similar case, you have to pick his office to pull through for you.

5 Lynn Becker via

I highly recommend Mike and his team. They are very thorough and responsive. Mike helped make an unpleasant situation a little more tolerable and advised me of my options how to enforce my divorce judgement that my ex wasn’t adhering to. He is always working in the best interest of his clients!

5 Eric via

Michael Schmitt made himself available to help on my case immediately, and despite a clearly large case log, he dedicated himself to an aggressive approach to clearing my name. He made me feel comfortable, and at ease despite the seriousness of the situation. His clear understanding of the intricacies of all the laws, despite their changes, made this process much easier and smoother than I could have ever hoped for. Definitely the best choice anyone could make to represent their case!

5 Jennie Goodwin via

Mr.Schmitt has represented me in family court. Michael has made these stressful times less stressful.He is very knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. I highly recommend Michael and his team.

5 Amanda Brown via

There is a lot I can say about Michael Schmitt…. He is one of the most professional lawyer I’ve seen perform. My son (19) is currently going through some stuff with the law and I had him call Michael right away. I know he is is very good hands with him. The conversation he was able to have with my son would be something he would say to his own son. He really cares about people. Thank you for all of your support. You are very recommended by me.

5 TK via

Mike assisted me with obtaining child support from my child’s father. I received more than what I expected. Mike and his staff stayed in communication with me and kept me updated throughout the entire process. Extremely professional, he definitely made a stressful situation much more tranquil.

One of the most distinguished hard working attorneys in the entire city.

5 Jamie P. via

The best words to describe Michael Schmitt is “Above and Beyond” or “You get more than you pay for”. He’s the only attorney I recommend in Rochester. If you want results then choose Mike.

5 anonymous via

Back in November of 2018 I hired Michael Schmitt to represent me in family court for an order of protection I placed against my mother and one she cross petitioned. I also used him for 2 civil court cases against her and 1 civil court case for my business, as well as traffic court. I’d highly recommend. Mike is a no nonsense attorney. He gets stuff done and done right. He has been successful in all of my cases. After reading this nonsense bad reviews I had to post a good one. I can believe these people. Mike has never missed court or rescheduled on me. Mike is prompt and on time. When Mike is standing next to me in court I feel confident. Hiring him is the best thing I’ve done. I have used him in multiple courts and have been more than happy with the outcome. He is YOU’RE GUY. HIRE MIKE! I couldn’t of found a better lawyer. Honestly he should charge more for the hard work he performs. “besides me Mike” Best part is he calls me and doesn’t charge $75.00 for a phone call. He answers his phone and emails promptly. You won’t find a better family court-civil court-criminal law-traffic court attorney around. If you didn’t hire him yet you’re making your first wrong move in your court hearing already.

5 Wendy Kieser via

I recently retained Mr Schmitt to assist with a traffic matter involving my son. Most of my contact was with Kristyn, who went above and beyond to ensure his ticket was reduced as much as possible.  She was a pleasure to work with, always responding immediately to my many questions.  Mr Schmitt will definitely be my first call if I need an attorney in the future.

5 Christopher Johnson via

Great Guy – Great Attorney.

5 anonymous via

Mr. Schmitt is a amazing attorney, from the initial consultation I knew immediately I had the right person in my corner to fight for my rights. He offered me a low down payment and a reasonable monthly plan to fit my budget, offered me a flat rate which took the stress off as I could call, email, text and visit as needed without the worry of the bill going. Through the entire process he was honest and did not sugar coat anything, no empty promises just the truth! He has a amazing team that works for him and I am glad I made the decision to hire them.

5 Richard ZImmer via

I would highly recommend Mike for family law.  He was very informative gave me my options and was completely honest given my situation.

5 Phil A. Rizzo via

Through my experiences, I couldn’t refer anyone else. Stellar!!!

5 Joe via

After my breakup from my girlfriend, I contact Mike about my best course of action for custody and child support. He gave me a free 15 min or so consultation over the phone on the best practices that I should immediately do while I made up my mind on whether or not I needed…

5 Jamie Pelkey via

For some reason my last review isn’t showing up.  I originally retained Mr. Schmitt several years ago so I could obtain sole custody of my daughter.  He accomplished the job despite my constant nagging and basically being the worst client ever.  LOL.  He then represented me for both the Custody and Child Support for my son.  He got me above and beyond what I was expecting and was extremely professional the whole time.  Two years ago (almost to be exact) I retained him to deal with my daughters child support matter.  After two years going back and forth with her father, digging through boxes of financials and the many court date reschedules he showed up to court more prepared than any attorney probably would.  Mr. Schmitt was able to calm my nerves and reassure me that everything would turn out fine.  He was right….  Court order was then appealed by my daughters father and Mr. Schmitt got me though that without a hassle.  Now that the appeal was denied and my daughters father still doesn’t seem to want to pay what the court order says Mr. Schmitt will be helping me with this as well.  Some say it’s sad that I became friends with my family law attorney but when you can trust your attorney more than people whom share your DNA friend is the only word that works.  Thank you Mike for your continuous efforts to straighten out my life.

5 Kristen via

Mike did an excellent job taking on my case at the last minute before the trial. He took the time to discuss the details even after work hours. His suggestions on handling some very personal and emotional communication matters were spot on! When it came to trial, Mike provided guidance and expertise that was invaluable. I highly recommend Mike for anyone going through a child custody matter.

5 Christopher Crough via

Retained Mr. Schmitt today! I already feel better. He’s a very knowledgeable attorney. I was referred to him! I would highly recommend.

5 Rick via

Mike recently handled my Divorce case and I have to say that he was Fantastic. My case was fairly difficult and Mike navigated every step with ease, and confidence. It became particularly difficult at times as the attorney for my Ex would make completely inaccurate statements in court, and made accusations that were egregious at times. Mike knew when to respond, and most importantly when NOT to respond. He helped me stay strong, and offered me excellent direction on what documents I needed to provide to refute their allegations, he gave me easy deadlines to make, and was patient with me. Throughout the whole process, Mike demonstrated a great amount of Reason, when their side offered none at all. It was incredible as Mike laid out my case versus my ex’s case – and Mike got me a settlement which includes A) A lump sum check for several thousand for the Buyout of our marital residence, B) my ex-wife has to pay me Child Support and Mike got me almost double what I was originally going to request, and C) Finally Mike also got me an agreement from their side that they will have to pay me half of a deferred compensation account my Ex had which will be another check to me in excess of $8 grand…… and Mike will absolutely represent me when it comes time to file that Qualified Domestic Relations Order. Mike and his Paralegals were very easy to communicate with, and quick to respond. (the office staff was great and very accommodating) and I would absolutely recommend Mike for someone going through a Divorce. Lastly was the cost and financial arrangement when I hired Mike. I was in a very tight position with finances when I started the Process (I Filed for Divorce against my spouse) Mike worked with me to set the retainer amount that worked, and allowed me a payment structure that took my needs into account (My needs and the needs of my two Little ones as well) Mike did not break the bank as some Lawyers can. he was very affordable, and made the whole process easy from start to finish. There is one word that sums up my experience working with Mike Schmitt – INCREDIBLE

Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.

5 Sheila Kennedy via

Michael and his team have been absolutely FANTASTIC. He has helped me since day one when I needed an attorney and has always been professional and so kind to my family and I. Whenever I hear friends or family needing assistance in the family law, I’ve always referred his name. His fees are VERY reasonable and always willing to help out in any way he can. He has helped me being a single mother and all and set-up a payment plan in the beginning and was so helpful since I’ve never been in that situation before. He is like family and always reassured me in any doubts I had going into court and felt like he was definitely a fighter for my son and I. I would recommend him to anyone in Rochester, NY. Thanks for all your help as always, Michael!!

Michael returned my first contact very quickly and met with me that day. He has been very responsive so far and his rates are so reasonable it just didn’t make sense not to use a lawyer for my child support case. I am very happy so far.

5 Lindsay via

My divorce was finalized in December 2012. It, as you can imagine was a very rough time for me and my children. Mike was truly amazing throughout the whole process. Not only did he take care of us professionally, but during the course of the divorce, I lost my 16 year old son to a very rare form of Meningitis and Mike came to my house and called me numerous times to check on me and my daughter. Mike went far beyond the call of duty for us and it will never be forgotten. Mike fought hard for me and my children and we got great results. I thank God everyday for placing Mike in our lives. Not only is Mike a great Attorney, he is one of the finest people I know with the highest of moral values.

Excellent. Mike fought for me for everything I wanted and felt was fair. He was always on time, never made me feel less important. I will definitely continue using his services in the future.

5 Kira via

Mike is a great lawyer who doesn’t give up being a compassionate individual for results. My divorce, as I’m sure it is for everyone, is an emotionally damning and endlessly exhausting. Choosing Mike Schmitt to represent me in my divorce was the best decision I could have ever made. He took the burden off my shoulders, so I could deal with the emotional grieving and healing, yet still provided a great ear when things just seemed too much. Divorce is a situation that no matter how good you are at separating aspects of life, there will be overlap. Instead of making me feel uncomfortable and weak, Mike helped build on my emotions, allowing us to move forward strongly with proceeds to achieve the desired legal result, and also helped me grow stronger emotionally. The best possible attorney for a divorce case in Rochester, NY- I would recommend him time and time again, and have.

Simply stated – The BEST. Michael Schmitt is a fine balance of professionalism and knowledge of the law. He made himself available to me immediately, and always made me feel like my case was his priority. His response time to my various questions and thoughts, was timely. He is attentive and efficient, in the manner that he handled evey aspect of my case. Michael’s vast knowledge of the law and his ability to apply it to my case was impressive. I never felt like I was alone in my fight. He made it a point to listen and understand my goals. It is not easy finding the caliber of lawyer that Michael Schmitt is. He is someone that I would highly recommend to others who need a talented, poised, intelligent lawyer to represent them in a court of law.

Very satisfied.  While shopping for attorneys, I spoke with Mr. Schmitt over the phone, and he was very straightforward with his initial advice of my divorce case. We met in person shortly after, and he laid everything out clearly for me. Over the next several months, he handled my case in a friendly, professional and effective manner. He or his staff were always very helpful and answered my questions in a timely fashion. Overall, I was very satisfied with the service he provided and would certainly recommend him to anyone.

Great Attorney!  Mr.Schmitt is a great attorney! I had a very complex case. He was efficient in all different aspects of the law. Questions were answered in a timely manner. The times during the custody trial were extremely stressful for me. Mr.Schmitt’s confidence in my case helped to ease my mind. His staff is very efficient also. Anything that needed to be done they were right there taking care of it. If you are looking for a good attorney you found one!

I was a 70 year old woman going through a divorce, my first divorce, and when I chose Attorney Michael D. Schmitt, to handle my divorce, it was the best decision I could have made for an attorney. He was very patient with me, I texted or called him on a weekly basis and he always texted me right back with an answer or called me at his earliest convenience. He handled all my situations in a very professional and through manner. He got me what I wanted out of my divorce and it was all done in a very short period of time. I would highly recommend him as an attorney to handle any case that anyone may be going through-I was very pleased with him.
