History and origin of our law firm

Marilyn Gale Vilyus opened her law practice on or about May 3, 1999 with the stated objective of offering effective but less costly alternative conflict resolutions for divorcing couples.  Over the course of twelve years, Marilyn Gale Vilyus built up a successful family law practice employing and mentoring a number of associate attorneys who shared her concept of providing empathetic and cost effective divorces. Effective August 1, 2011, then associate attorney Christopher Eric Schmidt merged his individual Law Office into Marilyn Gale Vilyus & Associates. As Marilyn Gale Vilyus elected retirement status and is no longer licensed to practice, the law firm was renamed C.E. Schmidt & Associates, Attorneys At Law. To ensure continuity of the same policies, mission statement, C.E. Schmidt & Associates, Attorneys At Law has continued to employ many of the same staff members hired by Marilyn Gale Vilyus in furtherance of the aforesaid objectives and standards.
