About Me



Attorney Ryan Schwartz graduated from Winthrop University where he was a starting pitcher for the Eagles.  After graduation he worked in The Netherlands for a plastics company, focusing on lean management.  After leaving the Netherlands he attended the Charleston School of Law.  While in school he served as President of the Federalist Society and was active with the Trial Advocacy Team.  He completed a thousand hours of pro bono legal work at the Charleston County Public Defender’s office and served as a Clerk under Bill Thrower.  Immediately after his graduation, he joined with Mr. Thrower to form Thrower & Schwartz.  When you need legal help, whether to have your rights defended because of criminal charges, have family law issues, or have suffered a personal injury, contact Thrower & Schwartz today for a consultation.

  • Rebecca A. Seibert

    I endorse Mr. Schwartz. He not only knows the law but demonstrates that he has the ability to apply it properly based on his answers on Avvo. It is admirable that he answers so many questions on Avvo and helps those who are unsure of how to proceed in very unfamiliar territory. He is an asset to the legal community!
