Our Firm’s Overview

Our law firm has been helping people since 1985. What we do at Rawls, Scheer, Clary and Mingo is simple — our clients come to us with a problem and we guide them to the best possible resolution. We work tirelessly and fearlessly to accomplish this singular goal.

Our clients are charged with crimes, they have been injured, they are under investigation, or their small business or professional standing are being threatened. For over 30 years, we have stood between our clients and those who would do them harm, assuring that they are heard, that their rights are protected, and that no one – not the government, the police or some big corporation is going to railroad them. We have built RSCM’s reputation on the principle that each of our clients will be taken care of by this firm as though they were one of our own.

Rawls, Scheer, Clary, & Mingo is recognized by many peer review surveys to be among the best law firms in country, and has received the distinguished “AV-Preeminent” rating from Martindale Hubbell. Every one of us is a trial lawyer with years of experience in the courtroom. Many of our lawyers are Board Certified specialists in their field. Each one has earned the respect of the judges and lawyers we work with on a daily basis.

But don’t take our word for it. Read what our clients have to say about us, look for reviews, ask someone you know in the legal community, or simply or scroll down to learn more about our lawyers.
