Founding Attorney Ted Schiller provides dedicated representation in various aspects of business and corporate law. While he practices in a wide range of cases, he specializes in the transactions that are essential to the structure of any business. Clients on a number of corporate levels have benefitted from the seasoned insight he has gained over more than 30 years. Within this field, Mr. Schiller has dedicated a significant amount of his work to representing owners of automobile dealerships generally, and in buy-sell transactions; as well as banks in loan transactions.

Ted founded the firm alongside Perry Pittenger in 2001. What started with only two attorneys has since expanded to incorporate the legal experience of fourteen lawyers in numerous practice areas. Prior to forming Schiller & Pittenger, P.C., Ted served in a variety of legal capacities for different firms and businesses. He sharpened his knowledge of automobile and business law during his time with Toresco Enterprises. In his time at the expansive auto dealership group, he served as general counsel while handling matters related to dealership operation, general business, and purchase and sales of dealerships.
