4.5 stars 45 totalReview Catherine Schwartz
All of the legal representatives were so helpful with great customer service. Lasandra made the experience less intense and put my mind at ease on more than one occasion. I am very pleased with the experience and feel blessed to have found this law office in a very low time in my life. Forever grateful!
I've worked with several different lawyers at this law firm due to my case taking almost three years to resolve. My ex-husband was very uncooperative and did everything he could drag out our case. Malvina, Catherine, Jeremy, and Lyssandra were great to work with. They were patient with my case. Every time I called to speak with Lyssandra (paralegal), she was very friendly and very knowledgeable! When it came to our trial, Malvina represented me very well! I swear she knew more about me than I did myself. She was very familiar with my case and very professional in court. When the judge gave the final ruling, I was awarded what I wanted plus more. The attorneys at Catherine A Schwartz Law Firm are wonderful people and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!
I hired Mrs. Schwartz for a restraining order matter I gave my retainer of $4000 and I was passed from partner to partner in the office the paralegal was very nice and answered my questions however every single time we went to court my case was continued even though I was prepared to move forward every single time with a witness who showed up every single time to court with me keep in mind he took off work three times to go to court on my behalf and the case was continued three different times. Long story short after three continuations and several meetings with them my entire retainer was blown through. I received no results whatsoever and had to eventually settle out of court. She worked with the opposing counsel on some back door deal where my ex would pay her more money supposedly my legal fees that were owed to her after my retainer was completely gone through with absolutely no results whatsoever that were racked up because of the constant continuances I am very disappointed with this office and I received no results whatsoever from them only a debt of $4000 that I am still paying back to the bank. They did nothing for me and were unprepared to move forward three separate times it should have gone to trial after the first court hearing not continued and continued and continued. I would not recommend this office at all whatsoever. Unless you just want to throw away money.
Being arrested for a DUI and felony concealed carry was devastating. I had no experience with the court process or protocols. With less than a 24 hour notice, Catherine Schwartz arrived early to my court appearance, clearly explained the process that would unfold and explained details every step of the way. She and her office staff were remarkably professional and made a stressful situation manageable. The results of my case were much better than I anticipated. I strongly recommend this office and Catherine's services.
she was so unprepared for trial in a juvenile matter that it cost me. my parental rights were taken away. All because she was moving her office and had the case continued already 2 times. she never met with me after getting the initial payment from me. I told her I wanted to go all the way to trial, I even had her change her contract because it said it did not include trial. She told me she would meet with me and my wife to go over the testimony before trial but when the date came she had not talked to me or my wife at all about our testimony. so she did not even ask for me to take the stand. I was so pissed. and had never been through a juvenile court case before. It should have not been a hard case either. My teenage son was accusing me of hitting him when I tried to subdue him. My wife and I were both there and were testifying that he was out of control selling drugs ,running with a gang, and was 51/50ed. he had run away before trial so was not there to accuse or make statement and the CPS worker was on vacation. So the case should have been open and shut. But as a hired attorney she did not stand up for my right to a trail. The judge had even gone over the allotted days that she had to bring it to trial. she gave me half my money back but that does not make up for the stress that my other 4 kids had to go through or my family. I should have been able to have my day in court so to speak.

I really want to thank Malvina and Shannon for their hard work, support, responsiveness, and understanding. A divorce is a difficult process, regardless, and they were there to listen to me and ensure that they understood my needs and requests. I truly appreciate their kindness.

This has been my first experience with a lawyer. I went in scared, anxious & uncertain. My first visit with Shannon was extremely comforting. She knew how nervous I was & took her time explaining what the process would be like. Catherine was the very same way! Both loving, caring women! Catherine made sure that I felt completely at ease with everything she was doing for me in my divorce proceeding, that in & of itself showed me how much she cares. Catherine & Shannon were very good at keeping me in the loop about what was going on, for that I am VERY grateful. My anxieties were lessened by their communications. Catherine & Shannon treated me with patience & kindness during times of breakdowns!!! I owe them my future & for that I am VERY VERY grateful!!! God placed these lovely ladies in my life when I needed them for sure! My mind is at peace & today I have a future that isn't quite so scary, thanks to Catherine & Shannon!

Going though a divorce and searching for a lawyer. I came across Catherine A Schwartz. I was very nervous and confused with my surprise divorce, and didn't know what to do. They made me feel comfortable, and explained the process of the divorce very simple and easy to understand. And I want to give a big thanks to Malvina, Shannon, and Laloni, for making my transition to being single an easy one!

Ms. Schwartz helped me tremendously during a difficult time. Her positive attitude and wise council helped relieve me of a great deal of anxiety. Beyond legal advice, the care Ms. Schwartz and her outstanding Paralegal Brittany showed, was very much appreciated.

I reviewed other family law offices before deciding on Catherine Ann Schwartz. From my first meeting in their office I knew I had made the right decision. I felt so safe and at peace with what they'd be helping me get through in my custody/move away case. They explained the legal process to me and showed genuine concerns on different outcomes heading into trial. My paralegal, Lyssandra, is knowledgeable and very personable. She has kept me informed on all developments and answered my questions promptly. My trial was emotional, sensitive and long. thanks to Attorney Michael Razo & Malvina Ovanezova, my children and I can move safely away to Hawaii. All we can feel is grateful and blessed. Thank you!
