Michael helped me with a civil judgement case and was very knowledgeable and professional. He handled the matter quickly and the result was very favorable. I would recommend him to anyone.

Considering filing for bankruptcy is never an easy choice. With up to my nose in debt, a new baby, an unemployed husband and nerve wracking bill collectors calling non-stop, I had enough and turned to Michael for help. What an amazing experience! Michael was respectiful, honest and as soon as I had the money to file my case, it was filed within 48 hours.-- I was impressed! Michael took his time to answer all my e-mails and questions in record time; it was refreshing to know that I had a lawyer that took time to represent me the best way possible in a time of crisis. In Summary, I would highly recommend Mr. Michael Schwartz to those that are considering filing for bankruptcy. Despite my nievty with finanical knowledge, michael made the process very easy going and smooth which helped keep things moving along. His timeframe of when the case would be discharged was dead on and within 3 months of appearing in court my chapter 7 bankruptcy was complete. My husband is back at work and we now have the fresh start we need to get back on track on our finances and ensure we are able to provide the financial security needed to raise our child and future children. A big thanks to Michael for his services! Life couldn't be better knowing that the phone isn't ringing off the hook for bills we were not able to pay due to our situation-- thank you for making that old life a thing of the past Michael!!!

I would highly recommend Michael Schwartz to anyone looking for legal advice concerning financial matters. Michael is very knowledgeable in his field and presented me with all my options in a simple, easy to understand plan. He addressed all of my concerns, kept me informed throughout every step of my process, and returned all of my calls in a timely fashion. His caring and courteous manner put my mind at ease during a very stressful period. I now have a fresh start and my financial problems are behind me. Michael is a true professional and an excellent attorney. I could not have chosen a better lawyer!

No offense to the rest of avvo's attorneys, but I've known many thousands of attorneys in my life and Mr. Schwartz is one of the very few who are a credit to your profession. Bankruptcy and foreclosure are two very stressful situations, and entail processes that are unclear and difficult from the client's point of view. Mr. Schwartz made the path clear, the process seem under control, the end result a welcome outcome. He was unfailingly responsive, clear, smart, competent, thoughtful, and kind. You should all have to take a class in law school called "How to Be Like Michael Schwartz." The reputation of your profession would improve by orders of magnitude overnight. Thank you, Mr. Schwartz.

From the start Michael was very helpful in calming my worries about filing for bankruptcy. He was extremely detailed in explaining the differences of each and helped me figure out which was my best option. I consider myself a simple person in my thoughts and Michael's calming personality was very welcome in helping me through this rather embarrassing time in my life. Would highly recommend him and use him again in the future if i have any need for a lawyer.

Michael was referred to me to help with a personal matter with my home. He got right back to me, scheduled a timely meeting and walked me through the entire process. He made sure I understood everything. Always available with my questions. He made me feel very at ease and I would suggest him to anyone! Thank you Michael!
