“During an unfortunately very antagonistic and adversarial divorce and custody matter, Ms. Schuler was a steady, knowledgeable, and strong advocate, especially for the children.’


“I was not expecting a difficult case, but it turned into one and she gave me the right guidance and represented me well so that I was able to come to a resolution without further exacerbation.”


“Ms. Schuler made sure I understood the relevant laws and how they might affect my choices in the proceedings. She is not someone who is easily intimidated — she is a true advocate for her client.”
