Financial problems can be very stressful. The pressure of too much debt and the threat of foreclosure, garnishment, and repossession can cause you to feel like you are walking through waist deep mud and feeling uncertain, tense, overwhelmed, forgetful, and indecisive leading to procrastination or other symptoms which impair your ability to make good decisions.

Do you have a hard time seeing how you can control the mounting bills, financial pressures, and calls from debt collectors? Have you thought about bankruptcy but not sure if it is right for you? Are you unsure whether Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is right for you but you want a fresh start?

Call the attorneys at LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES to discuss whether you qualify to discharge your debt through Chapter 7 bankruptcy or repayment of debt through Chapter 13 is the right plan for you. Congress made it possible for good, honest and hard working people to have a fresh start so - whether you qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 - we will help you through the process.

Our bankruptcy experience is your peace of mind. Put our bankruptcy experience to work for you today and get the fresh start you deserve.

Criminal Defense
"We'll fight 'em 'til hell freezes over, then we'll fight 'em on the ice." Unknown Soldier

A criminal conviction may lead to hefty fines, loss of personal freedom. We can help minimize the impact in most cases.
Call upon the experienced criminal defense lawyers at LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES for a knowledgeable and objective perspective of your situation. Our criminal defense attorneys can mount a robust defense, help negotiate the best deal possible, or help you understand the implications of the plea bargain.

We can help you through the important rules of criminal law, interpretations, local court customs and procedures. LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES can also help you understand the implications of the plea. It is extremely important to have legal counsel with experience in the criminal justice process when facing penalties, from a hefty fine to the loss of personal freedom.

Do not resist arrest if you are arrested. You may get hurt, you will be arrested, and you now face an additional charge of resisting arrest. When placed under arrest, you can give your name, address, and telephone number for yourself, a family member and your employer so that bail can be set. Otherwise, you should remain silent.

Tell the police that you want to talk to your criminal defense attorney. Most squad cars can record conversations so do not talk inside the police car. Remain silent even if the police continue to ask questions. Do not talk to anyone other than your criminal defense attorney, including other inmates.

Always be polite and respectful, but remain silent. Do not resist being handcuffed, searched while handcuffed, photographed or fingerprinted. Remember, be polite and respectful.

Clients who face criminal charges may have had to post a substantial bond and wonder how they can afford a criminal defense lawyer. We accept bond assignments in certain situations. Call LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES today for more details.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

I grew up in Louisville, KY. I put myself through college and graduate school at the University of Kentucky. Later, I completed the Six Six Sigma Green and Lean programs at Villanova University. I worked as a special education teacher, prosecutor, turn-around executive and consultant before I went into private practice.

I play an active role on the Louisville Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Board. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes mucus to be thicker than normal. The thicker mucus causes issues in the pancreas, lungs and digestive tract. However, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made great strides so those with the condition can live longer, healthier and more active lives. Consider the following:

In 1955, life expectancy for people with CF is 5 years old.

In 1981, life expectancy for people with CF is 21 years old.

In 1985, life expectancy for people with CF is 25 years old.

In 2004, life expectancy for people with CF is 35 years old.

Money buys science, and science buys lives!

I also serve on the Advisory Committee for the Arthritis Foundation of Kentucky. The foundation helps people take control of arthritis by providing public health education; pursuing public policy and legislation; and conducting evidence-based programs to improve the quality of life for those living with arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation offers information and tools to help people live a better life with arthritis. Join Mr. Schmidt and get involved by making a DONATION or becoming a VOLUNTEER.

My firm, LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES, helps people through the toughest times: bankruptcy, civil disputes, criminal defense, custody issues, divorce, DUI, personal injury, probate and visitation. We also help people in happier times: adoptions, formation of companies, and wills. In all cases, we strive to communicate clearly with our clients and to set expectations at appropriate levels.

At LAW OFFICES OF JOHN SCHMIDT & ASSOCIATES, we work hard to help our clients achieve greater peace of mind,to give them the fresh start they deserve and to be the lifeline they need in tough times. Let our experience be your peace of mind. Put our experience to work for you today.
