Our Practice Areas
Legal Counsel And Peace Of Mind
Life changes are challenging and often painful. In family law matters, you need compassionate representation to guide you through the emotional struggles and difficult decisions. You need someone who knows the process and what you are experiencing firsthand. There’s more to a divorce or child custody case than the paperwork. There are complex emotions that differ with each person and each family.
At Schnaars Law Firm, LLC, compassionate counsel is our specialty. We provide open and honest legal help in all fields of family law. We’ll weigh your current situation against your long-term goals and find a solution that works best for you. We’re tough but caring, and we will fight for you.
Finding Solutions That Work
Whether you need help with divorce, child custody, child support, modifications or any other family law issue, we’ll work with you to deliver honest service that meets your needs with the least negative impact possible.
