There are a lot of good quality lawyers in Southeast Michigan. James G. Schmier (P70825) of Schmier law (Birmingham, MI) is not one of them. While representing Case No. GC 09 1653 in the Michigan 46th District Court, he did nothing but didn’t know what to do. So, he petitioned the court to withdraw and did. He did this too, he presented the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission a "bogus retainer agreement". He did. Yes he did. According to Schmier, he sent (2) copies of the retainer agreement to client via U.S. mail but neither of the two were returned to him. Laugh. Go ahead and laugh. Laugh, laugh, laugh. The client NEVER received either of the two retainer agreements because he (Schmier) never prepared/submitted them. He conjured a retainer fee agreement that NEVER existed. Also, the subject matter concerning a retainer agreement between Schmier and client NEVER surfaced. After eight months of doing nothing, he (Schmier) said "this case is hard". He said that, “this case is hard”. Client accompanied by a Birmingham Police Office retrieved all case files from Schmier at his Birmingham Office, December 2009. He, (Schmier) NEVER had conversations with the Birmingham, Michigan Police Officer concerning escorted client. He said he did. He LIED. The Birmingham, Michigan Police Officer Jeffrey Whipple denies his allegation. He, therefore, has compromised and damaged a police officer’s reputation. He (Schmier) is a #1 Loser and a Master Liar. He is inept, inconsistent and conflicting. How he ever retained a Michigan law license is a mystery.
