An Outstanding Attorney

Duke Schneider is an outstanding attorney.  He manages to get things done quickly and efficiently with no nonsense results.

His business experience outside the field of law is very beneficial, and his ability to help handle business situations is exceptional.  I have the utmost respect and trust for his abilities, both legal and otherwise.

Professional Experts with Attention to Details

Attorneys Schneider and Dodsworth represented me during the 2010 merger of my business, Gross and Jansen Realtors, with Prudential Highlands to form Prudential Gross & Jansen Highlands Realty, a New Jersey real estate business with five offices located throughout Sussex County. Duke Schneider, with whom I have worked many years, teamed with Lara Anne Dodsworth, New Jersey counsel, to handle the merger from start to finish.  I thank both Duke and Lara Anne for their professionalism, expertise, attention to document details and the personal attention each gave to me and my business transaction.

“I was never fond of lawyers… until I met Attorney Duke Schneider.”

John Schneider truly cares for the people he represents. He jumped head first into my case and kept my wife and I in the loop…he was upfront with us.

He willingly put himself in the background and fought for OUR cause without thinking about what was in it for him first.

John treated us like friends, NOT clients. And in return, we never considered him an attorney. It was more like… a friend helping a friend.

John was loyal to our case! His dedication to us was unselfish, and the service we received from him and his associates of WSK&L was unending. We are in a BETTER position today than we ever thought we would be.

It is a blessing to meet and work with an attorney that learned about humanity before he learned about law.

It makes ALL the DIFFERENCE.

John, in my book, is ‘ONE IN A MILLION.’

Thank you Attorney Schneider.

I was immediately comfortable and totally confident that my case was being handled by one of the best in the area.

“As a real estate owner faced with condemnation of my property, the key factor came down to understanding all viable options to protecting my property. Attorney John J. Schneider’s extensive knowledge of, and experience in, the field of condemnation, handling challenging valuation issues for both developing and improved properties for hundreds of clients proved to me what an extraordinary counselor I had in my corner. He is well versed in land use, environmental and government regulatory matters which helped throughout the evaluation process. His performance, negotiation skills and the exemplary manner in which he represented my case made me truly respect his counsel, his experience and the man that he is… and he’s also a nice guy.”

I have worked with Duke Schneider on many issues, including conservation easements and historical tax credits, over the course of more than 15 years.  Duke’s expertise is deep, his judgement excellent and his integrity unquestioned.  I have greatly benefited from his common sense approach to legal matters.
