A Collaborative Law Firm
Our firm practices Collaborative Law. Collaborative Practice eases the emotional strains of a breakup and protects the children’s best interests. Your lawyers negotiate in good faith and work together with you to achieve mutual settlements outside the courts.
Collaborative Divorce law is a non-binding Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. Mr. Schutz is a collaborative law lawyer and an International Academy of Collaborative Professionals member.
The process begins with the spouses and their professionals (lawyers, accountants, mental health professionals, and others) signing a Participation Agreement. The Participation Agreement binds each person to the process of working together to reach an amicable resolution without litigation.
Any professionals hired by the spouses are compelled to withdraw from the representation of the spouses should the process fail and litigation ensue; thus, the professionals have a vested interest in the success of the process.

Coming from someone who has never really had great experience with attorneys, John was above and beyond in court. He completely dominates his specialty, thinks of everything, is unbelievably well-versed in the law and knows exactly how to approach a case without getting caught up in the awful and uncomfortable details that make litigation so depraved. Since hiring him I never felt taken advantage of, or unsettled. I always felt that he had me best interest and used the law to express that. There is not one minute in court were I felt uneasy about his approach. He was brilliant, calm and had an extremely confident demeanor. I can't thank him enough for keeping my babies here with me in a custody/relocation case that had been really ugly and toxic for many years before hiring him. Today in court, John was my hero and my husband and I can sleep well, knowing he fought for us.- C.C.
Mr. Schutz is very knowledgeable about marital and family law. Mr. Schutz and his staff are communicative, sympathetic, and hard-working. I highly recommend Mr. Schutz should you ever need representation in a family law matter.- Robyn
Amazing attorney. So much class and confidence in the courtroom. Brilliant in terms of the law. Couldn't be happier with how John handled my case. Eternally grateful.- Candace
I recommend Mr. Schutz without any reservations whatsoever. He is the ideal divorce attorney to have ON YOUR SIDE! Mr. Schutz is a fast thinker, he's always well-prepared, appropriately confident, and knows how to present a case to get the results you're looking for! Hire this attorney without giving it a second thought!- Anonymous
Mr. Schutz represented me in a highly contentious case wherein my ex-wife falsely alleged child abuse and many other horrible things to gain advantage. She spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in hiring a team of attorneys, forensic accountants, HR Specialists, and real estate appraisers. It was a funny sight in court….just me and John versus their entire Army. Even more amusing was how he so brilliantly and efficiently undermined all of the opposing team’s positions. The CPA’s 401K valuation was thrown out, the vocational evaluator’s opinion was rejected, I got the house and equal timesharing with my child. My home controls where our child attends school. We won on all counts…. Alimony was unavoidable, though the amount she was awarded was significantly less in amount and duration than what she was demanding. If you have the means to ‘Invest in the Best,’ I highly recommend John Schutz.- Mark
Mr. Shutz is an exceptional attorney who always has your best interests at heart. He is beyond professional and motivated in helping you meet your needs in the court room!- Kathi
Mr. John Schutz is an excellent lawyer. I live in Peru and was not able to get any timesharing with my kids who have lived in Florida for 8 years. Mr. Schutz took on my case and made my dream possible. My children visited me in Peru for the first time in 8 years and I will be able to spend Christmas with them too here in Peru. I will be forever grateful.- Anonymous
John Schutz is a brilliant lawyer. Not only did Mr. Schutz do an excellent job cleaning up the mess from the previous lawyer, he in my estimation was key in me ultimately obtaining a very good outcome. I had a very contentious divorce and the opposing lawyer was very unprofessional and somewhat abusive. Mr. Schutz through his professionalism and excellent people skills was able to reign in the opposing attorney's unprofessional conduct. Mr. Schutz ran circles around the opposing attorney as he was always prepared and was quick on his feet. He is well worth the money in my opinion. Due to his skill and the ability to outclass the opposing attorney, a trial was avoided which ultimately would have been far more costly. Highly recommend.- Elizabeth
