    I've known Ms. Schumacher since we attended law school together. Although we've never worked at the same firm, I am very well acquainted with her work as an attorney. I've opposed Ms. Schumacher and have also represented clients whose interests aligned with Ms. Schumacher's clients in various probate court matters over the years. I find her to be an excellent attorney worthy of the highest rating, who is respected by her peers in the San Diego probate bar.

    I've known Ms. Schumacher since law school. Since then I have had the pleasure of working on cases collaboratively (representing different clients with a common goal) and have opposed her in cases as well. I can state with confidence that in both circumstances I have been impressed with her ethics and professional skills. She is one of the best attorneys in the local probate bar and very deserving of an AV rating.
