Mr. Scheurer will handle your matter from consultation to courtroom. He understands the emotional toll a divorce takes on a client and that assigning associates or other staff members without staying “hands on”, only creates more stress for the client. From the outset, Mr. Scheurer works with his clients to determine their short and long term goals. He recognizes the importance of compassion and patience while staying laser focused on protecting his client’s rights when dealing with tough adversaries. He learned early on that the best way to negotiate a fair settlement in a divorce case is to be thoroughly prepared. A large percentage of Mr. Scheurer’s business comes from client’s who lost faith in their former attorney once settlement negotiations broke down; feeling that they were being forced to settle because their attorney did not want to go to Trial. On the contrary, when settlement cannot be achieved and Trial becomes necessary, Mr. Scheurer is ready. He zealously protects his client’s rights utilizing his vast courtroom experience and almost three decades of trying cases.
Mr. Scheurer takes pride in the fact that fellow attorneys often refer their clients to him, including some attorneys who practice in the same area of law !
