Hi, my name is Rodrigue, In the beginning of December 2014, I got myself into some serious trouble with the law, I was looking at a maximum of ten years behind bars, but I do know a GOD who knows Mr Brett. and GOD directed me to Mr Brett, honestly I thought my life was done for the fact that I am not a us citizens, and three years before this I was ordered to be deported back to my country by in immigration judge because I didn't have proper document to stay in the U.S. and the prosecutor knew about my deportation status I was really panicking. To make a long story short Mr Brett accepted to represent me. Money was not an issue Mr Brett work out affordable monthly payment for me. Now that Mr Brett is representing me my hopes was to keep me out of jail maybe get probation or something But Mr Brett knows what best he said to me jail or probation will cause me to get deported. So Mr Brett said he's going to fight to get me a diversion program and he did. I can go on and on saying how great attorney Mr Brett is but how about you find out for yourself. I'm giving Mr Brett five star is because that's the most I can give, because of Mr Brett and his wonderful staff I have a second chance to fix my immigration status And for all your help Mr Brett, my family and I would like thank you in our native language, Merci beaucoup.

During the month of December 2014 my husband got arrested and he needed a criminal lawyer to defend him with his felony case. I went online and did some research and came across the law offices of Hager & Schwartz. I read the reviews and most of them were five stars and the outcome of the cases were mostly dismissed. When I saw that I immediately told my husband that this law office can help you fight your case and we made a decision to hire Brett Schwartz. When we visited the office it was very welcoming and professional. The Secretary was very nice and helpful and assists us the best way possible. Furthermore that's when we met Brett and told him about the charges and his word was thAt this case is a peace of cake and he can get the charges dropped and he did. The case lasted for at least 8 months. During those months it was very stressful for me and my husband but through it all God sent Brett to do
his job and got my husband into a program even though a first the prosecutors wanted jail time. But we prevailed and I am so very thankful to Brett with his professionalism, honesty, and be straight forward from the beginning. I am truly greatful for Brett and his Secretary Thuy work.

I thoroughly recommend Brett Schwartz as a defense attorney. He worked tirelessly and relentlessly to get my case dropped even before it went to trial. He succeeded, although the odds were heavily stacked against us. Thanks to our overcrowded justice system, the entire ordeal took two months, and was the most stressful experience of my life, I was in constant panic and anxiety. Schwartz and his partner John Hager helped me through the entire ordeal, even affording me the opportunity to speak to them after hours and any time I needed them. They also waded through a tremendous amount of evidence I provided that showed my innocence, and used it to get a meeting with the prosecutor that eventually ended with the charges being thrown out.
Here’s my story: I was married to a particularly vindictive and manipulative woman who has threatened to lie to the police and have me arrested on domestic violence charges for over three years. I made the mistake of not taking her seriously and finally, after a particularly nasty fight in June, she made good on her threats and called the police while I stood there and begged her not to. I was arrested, although my ex-wife lunged at me in front of the police, spent over 24 hours in a jail, and endured the horror that is the criminal justice system.
Afterwards, I came out and hired Hager and Schwartz to handle my case. I provided them with messages in which my wife attempted to extort money from me, recordings of her hitting and yelling at me, and other things that demonstrated her lack of credibility. Armed with this evidence, Schwartz approached the prosecutor, secured a meeting early in the process, and successfully convinced her to drop the charges.
I think it is pretty common knowledge these days that when a man is accused of domestic violence by a woman, his guilt is presumed and the system often has little interest in considering his side of the story. I am confident that without Schwartz fighting for me, the prosecutors would not have listened to me. He got them to listen while assuring me that iI would see justice.
I am happy to have this ordeal behind me, and I am happy to highly recommend Hager and Schwartz to anyone who is falsely convicted of a crime and feels like they have the odds stacked against them.

I was referred to Brett Schwartz by a friend facing very serious charges. He was very understanding and also very honest, walked us through the process of what could happen from beginning to end best case scenario and of course worst case scenario. He did not make promises he could not keep and fought hard to seek justice. He and his team were available at all times of the night. I would text or call after hours and would always pick up. Due to his hard work and efforts the charges were never filed and case was dropped which is truly a miracle and we are so grateful for all his dedication.Should you ever need a defense attorney he is the person to contact, I guarantee he will not disappoint.The effort and dedication surpassed my expectations by far.

We worked with Brett on a domestic violence charge. He was the third lawyer we went to and we FINALLY got the result we desired. His knowledge of the law, the system and straightforwardness are beyond impressive.
He "tells it like it is", but he knows how to get the job done.
In our case, we were stuck in traffic and he had won before we even got to the courtroom. I can't say enough about his competence and true care for his clients.
IF YOU NEED HELP GO SEE BRETT!!!

I was looking for a lawyer for my DV case and I was impressed by the reviews, profile in their website, and the fact that when I contacted them the call went straight to their cellphone. I decided to trust Mr. Schwartz without having any recommendations from third parties. He did an excellent job with my case and I am more than happy and satisfied as client. He answered to my phone calls and messages promptly even after regular office/working hours. I will highly recommend him to anyone that needs an excellent criminal lawyer.

Mr. Hager and Mr. Schwartz came highly recommended by my local attorney. They did an outstanding job representing me. I was falsely arrested (identity fraud) late in the evening and they worked through the night and into the morning to get me out of jail. They were very professional and helpful through the entire process. I would highly recommend their law firm to anyone.

I highly recommend the law firm Hager & Schwartz PA. Mr. Schwartz handled my battery/domestic violence case in such a professional and expedient manner. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary in South Beach, Florida when a hotel staffer turned what should have been the happiest vacation into our worst nightmare. The second night of our stay we went out clubbing, celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived back at the hotel later that night, my wife and I had an argument that resulted in a 911 call from the hotel front desk clerk. The hotel staff member called 911 and told the police we were fighting. When the police arrived, they stated; “When a 911 call is made in Florida and the caller is alleging harm, someone had to be arrested” and escorted me to jail. Since the alleged victim was my wife, the police arrested me for domestic violence. I spent the next 2 days in jail waiting for an arraignment and bail. Once released from jail, my wife and I contacted the law firm Hager & Schwartz to discuss my case. I called on a Sunday expecting to get voice mail and a returned call during business hours. I was pleasantly surprised when the call was forward to Mr. Schwartz cell phone. Mr. Schwartz, made me feel confident in his experience and abilities as a former prosecutor handling similar cases. He promised he would do everything within his power to help me. He even gave me his cell number to call anytime to discuss my concerns. In addition, as promised his firm acted immediately on my behalf. The results from Mr. Schwartz far exceeded my expectations. At the first sounding, he had my case dismissed and is currently having my case expunged. I never expected this to happen so quickly given the current media coverage and national outrage concerning domestic violence. Being from out of state, I cannot thank Mr. Schwartz enough for handling our case so quickly and effectively and keeping us informed of the process along the way.
Thank you again-

Brett Schwartz is one of the best attorneys available in South Florida. I was charged with a DUI with Serious Bodily Injury and Leaving the Scene. I was facing a possible 10 year sentence with a Judge that rejected our plea on several occasions and seemed to have a soft spot for cases like this. And then when everything seemed hopeless and I spent my last days preparing for a possible prison sentence he came out with fists flying and fought for my freedom. He was always available for me no matter what time or day. He was very professional and trustworthy. I would like to thank Brett for all of his hard work and dedication, he is truly a skilled professional.
