Berg, Rouse, Spaulding & Schmidt PLC was formed in 2000, and consists of four attorneys. Tom Berg, Ward "Sam" Rouse, Chris Spaulding and Rick Schmidt. Although we are a relatively new, and relatively small, law firm, our attorneys cumulatively have over fifty years of experience. Unlike some larger law firms, personal attention is a cornerstone of our practice. We understand the burdens faced by people who have been injured, and the importance of standing up to large insurance companies which may wrongfully deny claims or attempt to obtain unfair settlements from those who have been injured.

Choosing a lawyer may be one of the most important decisions you ever make, and should only be made after thoroughly researching the training, skill, and reputation of the lawyer being considered. We emphasize communication, persistent advocacy, and attention to detail. We invite all of our prospective clients to ask any questions they may have about our firm. People who have been injured need someone with experience in order to level the playing field against a corporation or insurance company with endless legal resources. At Berg, Rouse, Spaulding & Schmidt PLC, when we represent a client in a claim against a large corporation or insurance company, we bring all of our attorneys' knowledge and experience to the table in defense of our clients' rights.

Berg, Rouse, Spaulding & Schmidt PLC has been recognized as an "AV" law firm by the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register. For over 130 years, Martindale-Hubbell has been the most respected source of authoritative and reliable information about members of the legal community in the United States.

An "AV" rating identifies a lawyer and a firm with a very high to preeminent legal ability and is the highest reflection of expertise, experience, integrity and overall professional excellence. Martindale-Hubbell ratings are established by attorneys for attorneys and it states: "clearly indicates a demonstration of the highest professional and ethical standards."

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
