Traditional legal representation of use to most businesses and their owners.

About the Firm

Formed in March 2010, Schnelker, Rassi & McConnell PLC provides expert legal counsel to clients throughout the Greater Grand Rapids and West Michigan areas.

At SRM, our services not only include traditional legal representation of use to most businesses and their owners, but we also pride ourselves in providing trusted counsel that our clients can rely on when making decisions relative to their business and personal lives.

As a small law firm, we are proud of the fact that each and every one of our attorneys has been recognized in Super Lawyers magazine for their respective practice area. From complex corporate legal issues to family law, our skill sets run the gamut of the legal profession.

Big Law Firm Expertise... Small Law Firm Value

At Schnelker, Rassi & McConnell, we are a law firm that thinks like a business. Our skilled attorneys and counselors are committed to providing exceptional client service paired with bottom line sensibility. We understand that as a business owner you have to watch your bottom line, why shouldn't your attorney?

As a client, expect the expertise of a big law firm with the flexibility, efficiency, service, and value of a smaller law firm.

Our Philosophy

Client Focus

We Believe:

• Clients don't want cookie-cutter counsel. They want their attorney to listen to their specific problem/issue and custom fit a solution for their current situation.

• Clients want advice and recommendations, not endless options.

• Clients want their attorney to be available and proactive, not constantly putting them off or missing deadlines.

• Clients want their attorney to take problems off their desk, not punt the problems back to them.

• Clients want their attorney to resolve their legal problems as expeditiously and practically as possible, not to churn time and expense unnecessarily.

Our Resolve

To serve our clients with proactive, responsive, and practical advice and counsel.

• We listen carefully.

• We give advice.

• We make recommendations.

• We solve problems.

• We get things done.

• We don't mess around.

Industry Specific Experience

With over 30 years of combined service in the Grand Rapids area, we understand the nuances of the West Michigan business environment and have provided legal services to individuals and corporations across a broad spectrum of industries.

From family law matters and complex estate planning issues to business formation, franchising, and corporate litigation, expect the knowledge and expertise of a big law firm with the flexibility, efficiency, and value of a smaller law firm.

    I have worked with Andrew Rassi as co-counsel in a commercial litigation matter prior to his focusing his practice on corporate and franchise matters. He was an outstanding litigator had provided excellent advise to our client. Since then, I have referred several corporate and franchise matters to Andrew for some of my firm's Texas-based clients. Andrew has received high marks from all whom we have referred. He is worthy of the highest rankings in quality and integrity.
