Dirk was highly recommended to us by a fellow attorney in whom we have great confidence.  He proved to both capable and diligent legal counsel, exhibiting a courtroom demeanor that inspires respect and confidence, and I am sure, persuasiveness to the court in his presentation of our case and management of procedures.  In our view, his effectiveness played a large part in influencing opposing counsel and his client to settle our case in a manner completely favorable to us.  In addition, it was a pleasure to deal with him from  personal and professional levels and, as an attorney myself, I would commend him to anyone seeking legal representation over other lawyers in his field of practice.”

“I had the pleasure of working as co-counsel with Mr. Schwenk on a complex civil matter. During a lengthy trial, I found Dirk to be extremely well-prepared and unflappable. He has an easy-going manner, which I think both judges and juries appreciate, but don’t let that fool you: Dirk is spot-on with knowing the law and is an excellent advocate for his clients, being suitably aggressive or charming as needed.”

Thank you for the way in which you handled the defense of my recent case. Having to deal with this from overseas I had to place my entire trust in you to deal with this case on my behalf..thank you most sincerely for doing a great job and getting the best result for myself. To say I am 100% satisfied would be putting it mildly!

“Dirk was able to quickly settle an insurance claim on my boat when the insurance company had been unwilling to pay.  His quick action and knowledge of marine situations helped me gain a five figure settlement which allowed me to get back on the water again.”
