Douglas Schmidt: You don’t have to go downtown for a great lawyer. Dean and I have both practiced downtown with distinguished firms. We provide downtown quality legal services that are not in a downtown area.

Dean Salita: Being a lawyer and being a law firm is not just about giving legal advice and spitting out law and statutes. It’s about dealing with people and their lives and knowing who they are, and I think our firm is very different on that accord than many other firms.

Douglas Schmidt: Dean is a people person, like I have never known. He understands and appreciates people. He’s an example of what I consider to be a great lawyer, and he’s a great partner. There are few lawyers that I can go to for a second opinion that I respect, and Dean is one of them. He’s a great lawyer. He’s a great people person, and I love him for that.

Dean Salita: When I had the opportunity to go with him and be a business partner with him, not only did I learn that he truly is a fine lawyer, but where it came from. It came from – as he’s discussed, himself, it came from being a good human being and a good listening. It came from knowledge of the law and years of experience, and it came from passion. And truly those three things together I think make Doug Schmidt one of the finest lawyers, not in the state but in the country.
