From the first phone call to file for a divorce with this law firm I was treated with respect and compassion. Shannon,Micheal and Catherine all worked very hard to keep me filled in during the process.Any questions or concerns were answered thruout the process in a very timely way and they did a great job in representing me.If ever in need of assistance in the future I would hire this firm immediately..Shannon,Micheal and Catherine are all great to work with
My case was unusual as I reside in Nebraska and the case was in California. I had to have a lawyer that I could trust to take of the things that I could not from half way across the country. I had a poor experience with a different law firm and was wary when I went to hire new representation. After consulting with a few different lawyers I landed on Catherine A. Schwartz's firm. Michael Razo (the attorney I worked with) and Shannon Highfield (paralegal) were incredibly knowledgeable, understanding and passionate when it came to handling my case. The positive outcome of my case was the direct product of the fantastic job they did as my representation. They kept me informed about my case, made sure I maintained a positive outlook during a very stressful time, and handled the proceedings like true professionals. After the first day of my trial my family had to fly back to Nebraska and the next morning Catherine, Shannon and other people from the office came to the courthouse to show their support. I was moved by the incredibly kind gesture. Mike Razo and Shannon are the best in the business. If you're looking for representation, don't hesitate to give them a call. You won't be disappointed!!
Miss Schwartz team has done an excellent job helping and guiding me through my custody case. Couldn't have picked a better law firm to represent me in court.
If you need help she's the one to call ! she was always there or had someone available to talk to me always called right back to give me informed and protect me 100%. gave me good advice so I could make adequate decisions. she it is a no-nonsense lawyer tough as nails and Able to deal with the other lawyers that she comes up against with a firm hand. I would truly recommend this lawyer and if you're looking for help she's want to go to!!
We got the chance to have this firm represent us and through it all Shannon Highfield was THE MOST helpful in our case; she made us feel very welcome and always kept us up to date and explained things in "normal terms" so we understood everything that was going on. She is very trustworthy and personable. She is our paralegal but I wish she could of been our lawyer from the start to say the least. I would definantly recommend this firm again and again to represent you in your case; they will actually fight to get you results and they know there stuff!!
After trying to handle this myself and studying Family code, in mediation I felt railroaded and alone. My case involved a restraining order, in which
Has ripped my son and I from each others lives.
Almost a decade ago I retained Catherine Shwartz for a criminal matter with awesome results.

She and her staff not only did everything, to quickly prepare for my hearing, but Mr Razzo was brilliant
In resolving every issue between both sides
Brittany was awesome in all she did in preparing
All paperwork with precision.

Once I realized I needed help with my family law issues I found the law office of Catherine Schwartz
First and foremost I have to thank Mr.Razo,Mrs. Masson and Mrs. Schwartz. I trusted you with my bambini's and securing their safety and Financial stability. They acted promptly swiftly and secured the safety of my children. Because of them I can sleep at night knowing the fact that my children are protected underneath the California law. By far the best Riverside\southern California lawyer that I can recommend. Their law office is very family orientated. And I feel like my Bambini's and i are apart of her family . Thank you thank you so much
I was referred to the law offices of Catherine Schwartz by a dear friend after my child’s father chose to not only lie about my fidelity as a mother both under oath and in legal documents, but also slander my character as a professional, hard working mother and student. I never thought I’d need an attorney’s assistance in this way. When I sat down with Mrs. Schwartz herself, I will admit, I was skeptical that anyone could help me at this point due to how convincing my child’s father had been in trying to convince law enforcement and the legal system of things that just were not true. Mrs. Schwartz and her paralegal, Shannon Highfield, were more than welcoming, optimistic, and supportive throughout the time they were representing me. Ms. Highfield was more than professional in her communications. She ensured all my questions were answered relatively quickly, scheduled legal appointments at a time convenient for me, and filled court documents I couldn’t even have begun to fill out let alone file due to feeling so overwhelmed. Mrs. Schwartz prepped me for custody mediation and although another reputable lawyer from the firm represented me during the actual court proceeding, I felt more than confident that my child and I would be legally protected. Words would not suffice in describing how this law firm helped my family and provided me peace of mind during one of the most disturbing and difficult times in my life. Mrs. Schwartz’s law offices represented me and assisted me in retaining child custody and restraining order permanence. Not once did I feel unsupported and alone. Thank you Mrs. Schwartz and Ms. Highfield, for everything. You and your staff are truly are self-less in working to restore justice that seems inaccessible. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Mrs. Schwartz took personal interest in getting me and my wife through the process. She did everything she said she would and then some. She truly helped us when we needed the help.
As a professional within the legal industry we all have our personal issues as well. I know of many attorneys however I had to select who I felt was best for my particular personal case. Catherine Schwartz was my pick. She represented me for a child support case that I had been battling alone for over a year. I wanted what I felt was right for my children. Catherine not only made me feel comfortable she always had my best interest. THANK YOU CATHERINE!! I appreciate you very much.
