walter musgrove

Walter Musgrove III believes providing competent and successful results are not all that his clients’ deserve. Walter believes that each clients’ legal matter should be handled with effective communication and integrity. Walter strives to provide the quality of representation he would desire to be provided to his mother or father.

For over a decade Walter has been successful in securing settlements and judgments for hundreds of individuals throughout the state of Texas who have been injured by negligent drivers and healthcare providers.

After graduating from Duncanville High School, Walter Musgrove received his Bachelor’s degree in English from Texas State University where he was also an All-American Defensive back on the Texas State Football team. While in college, Walter was named Academic All-American for three years. Following his undergraduate studies, Walter earned his law degree from Tulane University. While attending Tulane Law School, Walter held the position of Senior Business Editor of the Sports Lawyer’s Journal.

Outside of working to protect his clients’ rights, Walter enjoys spending time with his family and participating in several local youth organizations.

Bret Schmidt

Bret Schmidt leads the Civil Forfeiture practice for the Musgrove Law Firm. Bret has successfully recovered millions of dollars and assets for individuals who have had their money and assets seized by various government agencies. Bret’s knowledge of the law and geniuine desire to see justice served is what has allowed him to be considered one of the top civil forfeiture lawyers in Texas.

When Bret Schmidt left the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office in 1996 and went into private practice, he had a mission. He wanted to provide a caring approach to criminal defense.

Bret has dedicated his career to defending the accused. He values the opportunity to get to know the people who come to him for help. He believes that the attorney-client relationship works best when it is based on honesty, mutual trust, and respect. He strives to develop such a relationship with each of his clients. Many of these relationships remain strong even after a particular case is over.

You will never be just “a case” to Bret.

Candice Patrick

Candice Shantell Patrick is a passionate attorney who gives each case her all – even if it means late nights and early mornings! Attorney Patrick received her Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree from Northern Illinois University College of Law where she graduated magna cum laude. She also served as a law clerk for the University’s General Counsel where she assisted in advising the Board of Trustees, handling transactional contracts, and litigation defense. Attorney Candice went on to be accepted into both the Texas Bar and the Northern District of Texas Federal Court.

After being admitted to the Bar, Candice founded Shantell Law, PLLC, where she serves the Dallas Fort- Worth community. Her law firm provides a wide range of business, divorce, and personal injury services, but is most notable for guiding business owners through the legal aspects of business ownership.

Aside from providing direct legal services, Candice also created Sophisticated Business Owners, LLC with the goal of teaching business owners how to review business contracts, acquire trademarks, and properly form their LLC. This education based business arose out of Candice observing that many business owners could not afford to hire their own attorney, but could be taught how to “Do It Themselves.” Since then, Candice has been featured on Fox, CBS, NBC, the 850 Credit Club, Eric Elliot’s Podcast, and Voyage Dallas as a Rising Star. In her spare time, Candice enjoys traveling, yoga, aviation at the Addison airport, and spending time with her daughter at the local arcades.
