Why Hire the Family Law and Criminal Defense Attorneys at Schneider Law Firm?

There are many reasons why clients choose to work with the experienced family law and criminal defense attorneys of the Schneider Law Firm.

Access to a Diverse Legal Team

We take a team approach to ensure our clients’ legal needs are met.

  • Our firm handles cases primarily in the areas of family law and criminal defense. While these two areas of practice seem quite disconnected at first, there are times when a divorce or child custody case involves issues of child abuse or family violence. Our legal team combines forces to ensure your interests are protected.
  • We sometimes handle child protective services cases, which are themselves an unusual combination of family law and “criminal” defense.
  • Many family law cases result in a “new” form of family, which means that old estate plans are no longer valid or workable. One of our attorneys handles estate planning and can step in to update existing plans or create new estate documents – wills, trusts, medical powers of attorney.

Recognized for Our Accomplishments

Attorneys at our firm are known for their dedication and professionalism, demonstrated both in our track record of courtroom success and the acclaim we have received in the legal community with recognition as “Top Attorneys,” in Fort Worth magazine, and “Super Lawyers” or “Rising Stars,” as well as receiving high Avvo* ratings.

  • P. Micheal Schneider: “Top Attorneys, Criminal Defense”, 2011-2014, Texas Super Lawyer 2013-2019, Avvo rating of 10 (superb)
  • Alison Porterfield: “Top Attorneys, Family Law,” Fort Worth magazine, 2012-2019; “Rising Star”, 2014-2020
  • Melissa Korene Swan: “Top Attorneys, Family Law,” Fort Worth magazine, 2012-2019, “Rising Star”, 2014-2020, Avvo rating 10 (superb)
  • Trent Marshall: “Tarrant County Top Attorneys, Parole Law” by Fort Worth magazine, 2014-2019. Trent was the former commissioner of Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.

* The Avvo Rating evaluates a lawyer’s background. The rating considers information shown in a lawyer’s profile, including a lawyer’s years in practice, disciplinary history, professional achievements and industry recognition.

Our attorneys never back away from a complex case, whether it is a high asset divorce case involving the division of complex marital assets or helping someone secure parole. We are proactive, preparing all our cases as if they will go to trial. This ensures we are always prepared for success.
