Working With Schaner Law Firm


The search for Justice is at the core of everything we do. Whether we are representing a business or an employee, we go the extra mile to get justice for our clients.


We believe that Justice is not always fair. However, we work every day to bridge the gap between the two. While sometimes not the same, both aims are equally important and worthy of pursuit.


Our profession is all about conflict resolution. We best serve the interests of our clients when we quickly and effectively bring resolution to their case.


We understand the need for professionalism and confidentiality in our relationship with our clients. We will provide diligence and hard work in getting your legal issues resolved.
