Great Shot of John Schmidt

My name is John Schmidt and I have a personal devotion to helping struggling families. The happiness and welfare of clients are extremely important to me, which is why I insist that the client take an active role in working with me in a collaborative manner on their case. I ask clients to come into the office to work on their cases so we can work together and stay on the same page every step of the way.

I have had to hire attorneys and I know what it is like to be the client. I work hard to find solutions for my clients. You know the old expression that “time is money”? It is true when it comes to an attorney working on a case, so I work hard to solve your problem(s). I also try hard to make sure you have a voice with the court and that the judge knows what is important to you. I discuss this on my weekly segment on Wave3 television, Family Law Fridays with Attorney John Schmidt.

I grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and put myself through college (I studied painting and sculpture, art history, and psychology) and graduate school (MBA / JD) at the University of Kentucky.

Later, I completed the Six Six Sigma Green and Lean programs at Villanova University and worked as a special education teacher, prosecutor, turn-around executive and consultant before going into private practice.


I believe in the quotation from Albert Pine: “What you do for yourself dies with you, but what you do for others lives on and is immortal.” I hope clients will show up and tell stories about our time together and ay that I made a difference for the better in their lives at a time when they were dealing with an important issue.
