THE LAW OFFICES OF ANNE SCHMIDT, LLC
Anne Prenner Schmidt is an accomplished family lawyer and certified Mediator. She draws on her legal and business experience to help resolve the issues that arise during the difficult process of marital dissolution.
What is your personal Mission Statement?
Divorce can be one of the most difficult and emotional periods in a person’s life. Compounding that stress with needless and costly litigation only heightens emotion and can turn divorce into a very ugly process. My mission is to encourage and promote an alternative path to resolution through mediation and collaborative law processes which allow for successful resolutions.
Whom do you admire and why?
My parents. They both followed their passion and left stable careers to develop a renowned men’s clothing business, The Ben Silver Corporation. Working side by side with them in their store on the weekends, growing up in Charleston, S.C., made me into the person I am today.
What is the most rewarding part of your career?
Not participating in a litigated process. The fact that I can help people realize that there is a different way to work through the dissolution process, whether that be through mediation or collaboration, to provide equally positive results without all of the acrimony, is incredibly rewarding.
