Based in Newark, New Jersey, ScheweLaw, LLC assists clients nationwide with immigration law issues, and in northern New Jersey and southern New York with employment, general family, divorce, and municipal court law issues, as well as criminal record expungements. For detailed information about the services we provide, and a brief description of the legal issues we can help resolve, please see our practice areas overview.
Chief operating officer and founding attorney, Michael J. P. Schewe, Esq., has a wealth of experience in all the various fields he practices in. To read about his experience, please visit his attorney biography page.
Regarding immigration law matters, Mr. Schewe regularly counsels clients facing the threat of deportation by helping them pursue a wide range of relief, including inadmissibility waivers, adjustments of status from within the United States, consular and domestic visa processing, cancellation of removal, and asylum, among other defenses. Mr. Schewe also has experience in employment litigation, especially in the area of discrimination and harassment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and New Jersey's Law Against Discrimination. He has worked on cases involving age, disability or perceived disability, gender (including pregnancy), national origin, sexual orientation, race, and religious discrimination, among others. Mr. Schewe is sensitive to the needs of clients suffering from unfair treatment in the workplace, and can help clients to determine whether the treatment they are being subjected to, including termination, was wrongful.
In addition to immigration and employment law issues, Mr. Schewe has been practicing general family law (including adoptions, alimony, palimony, child custody, child support modification, and so on) as well as matrimonial divorce law in the Superior Court across all of northern New Jersey. ScheweLaw, LLC practices out of their Newark office on Green Street, which is directly across the street from the municipal courthouse. If you have traffic tickets, or have been charged with drunk driving, Mr. Schewe offers affordable and convenient legal assistance from his ideally-situated Newark office.
At ScheweLaw, LLC, we strongly believe that employees and jobseekers should not be fired or denied employment based on past wrongs, and we have helped clients obtain expungements that, in certain cases and under certain circumstances, can provide clients with a one-time clearing of their criminal record.
If you believe that you have any of the legal problems covered above, please take the time to fill out our contact form and someone from our office will contact you as soon as possible.
We believe in our motto: Problem Solved.™
At ScheweLaw, LLC, we are aware that people typically seek out the help of an attorney because they have one or more legal problems that they do not have the ability to resolve themselves. We understand the sensitive nature of the of the attorney-client relationship, and wish to reduce the stress commonly associated with finding legal solutions in two, distinct ways: (i) by creating an atmosphere of open communication and active involvement between attorney and client, and (ii) by creating honest, upfront, flexible, and realistic fee schedules to reduce the added stress that is commonly associated with the unpredictable billable hours model of larger, more impersonal law firms.
One of the largest reasons for client dissatisfaction with their attorneys is the impersonal touch some law firms can exude. However, modern day technologies such as electronic mail, instant messaging, social media, "smartphones," "virtual offices," and interactive case management software have helped to bridge the gap between client and attorney. By effectively wielding these tools, ScheweLaw, LLC hopes to break down those barriers, and promote a supportive and accessible relationship with each one of its treasured clients.
A second major area of concern for clients is the unpredictable and ever-rising costs some law firms charge in association with legal services, especially litigation. At ScheweLaw, LLC, we offer our clients various fee agreements, payment methods, and payment plans to alleviate the stress of our already reasonable fees. We believe that you, the client, should have available an effective and upfront "flat-fee" system to encourage our staff to work efficiently. Moreover, this ensures you that the fee paid will cover only the work actually done, and avoids any surprises when the final bill arrives.
We encourage you to read over the materials provided on our website so that you can have some basic knowledge about your legal issues. Afterwards, if you feel you would benefit from the assistance of an experienced attorney, we would be honored to help you in that process. Just fill out our contact form, and let's get started solving your legal problems together.
