About Gary Schwartz

About me

Gary Schwartz has been an attorney in the State of Florida for over seven years, with six of those seven years in the criminal justice arena. During this time he has worked as both an Assistant State Attorney and an Assistant Public Defender. During his four years as an Assistant State Attorney Gary handled felony cases ranging from grand thefts to aggravated batteries to DUI manslaughters. During this time Gary worked closely with law enforcement officers, training them on the proper handling of scientific evidence in cases involving blood draws as well as working with them on the preparation of search and arrest warrants. His experience as a prosecutor assists him in anticipating the way the State puts a case together against a defendant, as well as identifying problems in the State's cases. As an Assistant Public Defender Gary spent two years handling felony cases in circuit court. Gary's responsibilities in circuit court included battling charges of sexual misconduct, drug trafficking, robberies and firearms cases. Practicing in the Public Defender's office enabled Gary the opportunity to do what he went to law school for; to defend the rights of a private citizen against the power of the government, which all too often oversteps its rightful authority.

Gary attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey and graduated in 1994 with degrees in English and Sociology. He spent two years working as an editor before enrolling in Brooklyn Law School in 1996. While at Brooklyn Law School Gary was awarded two fellowships for his service in the public interest, specifically relating to his work in the fields of Native American Rights and Political Asylum for Refugees. He was also awarded two prizes for achieving the top grade in his Constitutional Law class.

Gary is passionate about protecting the rights of individuals who find themselves swept up in the criminal justice system. He is dedicated to bringing his experience as a prosecutor and a defense attorney to bear in an intelligent, strategic analysis of your case.
