The Schneider Law Firm is always looking for ways that we can better serve the individuals who come through our doors. We recently furthered this endeavor was by hiring Attorney Ron Poirier, a criminal defense lawyer who brings nearly 40 years of experience to the table. We are thrilled at this new addition to our team and anticipate increased success as a result!
Legal Talent Bolstered by Military Experience
After graduating from Hobart College in 1972, Mr. Poirier went on to obtain his Juris Doctorate, Magna Cum Laude from New England School of Law just five years later. Since then, he has amassed numerous successful case results on behalf of his clients.
Mr. Poirier immediately joined the United States Marines after law school as an active duty JAG officer. He served for four years and eventually achieved the rank of Captain. Shortly following, Mr. Poirier served as a partner in the law firms of Greenwald, Poirier Williams and Myerow & Poirier. He spent 23 years as a trial attorney in Massachusetts, litigating tort actions for those suffering catastrophic loss by defective products and medical malpractice.
Mr. Poirier and his wife then moved to Savannah, Georgia in 2004 when their four children were grown. He shifted his legal focus back to criminal trial advocacy, something he concentrated on while in the U.S. Marine Corps. Mr. Poirier held the position of chief trial prosecutor for Bryan and McIntosh Counties after serving as a Public Defender and an Assistant District Attorney for the Atlanta Judicial Circuit.
Today, Mr. Poirier spends his time defending those facing criminal charges in both the Federal Courts and State Courts of Georgia. He currently lives in Savannah with his wife and enjoys running and training for marathons.
We at The Schneider Law Firm look forward to all that Attorney Poirier will accomplish for the criminally accused in Savannah. If you are in need of legal representation, contact our criminal defense attorneys right away!
