My husband and I turned to Bret when his probation was almost over, but the amount of Community Service he had was ridiculous for anyone who has to work a normal 8-5. Bret worked... with us, it was cost effective, and he had my husband take care of everything he needed to. We were able to get the Community Service hours waived and expunged of all charges. Well worth it and i wish we didn't wait 9 years to do this! Probably could have cut down probation if we'd have gone this route sooner. Thanks for being an amazing and caring attorney!read more

If I could give Mr. Schmidt a 6 star review I would. He has been my attorney for years, and has always gone the extra mile in his representation of my past issues with the... criminal justice system. Bret (I'll call him that because he is also my friend) not only provided top notch representation for me, he has been instrumental in my return to society and me maintaining sobriety and living life the way it's supposed to be lived. Bret is always available to offer advice and guidance, even though the issues I hired him to represent me on have long passed. I have found that he has concern and empathy for his clients, unlike the majority of criminal lawyers whose main concerns revolve around money. Bret is a strong family man, and a devout Christian. I am proud to call him my friend. A better attorney and man such as Bret is a rarity.read more
