Prior to attending law school, Mr. Schmitt worked in the sport fishing business in southern California. He has resided in the Dana Point-San Juan Capistrano portion of south Orange County for the entirety of his 34 year legal career and has served for many years on the boards of the homeowners associations where his family has resided.
Mr. Schmitt, his wife Wendy and their five children live in San Juan Capistrano and are proud to be active members in their local community. He is a member of the Ocean Institute of Dana Point, United Anglers, and the National Rifle Association.
