1st case is a domestic violence case, i was looking for the best attorney to get me the result i deserve, specially i'm a green card holder and i might potentially get deported if i get convicted, so i hired GREG, on the first interview i was amazed how he was able to review my case from a different aspects and showed me the positive and negative parts of the case, he was affordable on the money cost compare to the quotes i got from other attorneys, i felt so much comfort with him, on the first day in the court he got me offer from the prosecutor which's my previous lawyer couldn't get for 1 and half month, and he advised me legally very well, he kept me informed in a timely manner, he was patient and explained everything to me so calmly even though my english is not that good, he presented me very well in the court, so on my trial date, he got my case dismissed like it didn't happen :)
2nd case was violating NO CONTACT ORDER, i got arrested at midnight so my wife had to call GREG at 3am in the morning he answered her and calm her down, he was calm with her even though she kept him awake most of the night talking to him on the phone, 9am in the morning he was in the court, i got released, and he took over the case, AGAIN he did a great job, he was so caring and responsible and kept me informed in a timely manner, and spent allot of time out of the court room explaining the case all over to me, so today the 13th of march he got my 2nd case dismissed, i'm really happy now i have a clean record and i will be able to renew my green card and apply for the U.S citizenship :)
I'm thankful for GREG for the great job he did for me and i recommend him totally!

I was charged for D.V. in November of 2013. As I am an immigrant there was a risk of losing my status and being deported if I was convicted. I found in Greg an attorney that I felt confident in from the very first interview due to his knowledge and professional expertise. I am not very fluent in English and Greg was very patient and clear to make sure I was understanding all the options and possibilities my case had. He did not just give me legal advise but also encouraged me to keep my well-being in the most critical moment. He was always available to answer my questions and concerns in more than a timely manner and kept me informed at all times. The case was successfully dismissed.
I am very lucky and happy I have met Greg and thanks to him my life is back on track. He is an amazing lawyer and I recommend him 100%

Greg and Saad got my gross misdemeanor case dismissed.
When I got charged with a gross misdemeanor, my career and life would have been over if the case wasn't handle properly. I felt I was wrongly charged and needed an expert in the field, so I hired SQ attorneys.
Greg was highly knowledgeable and explained all of the processes and outcomes and helped me to make the right decisions when applicable. With his expertise, I was able to focus on work and spending time with my family without worry. In the end, my possible jail time and fines got reduced to community service and Not Guilty.
Greg and Saad practically saved my life and I would recommend them to anyone in a similar circumstance.

Great attorney and overall great guy. From my very first call and within the first few minutes of talking with him, I knew I was in good hands and that he would take care of me. He was available when I needed him and promptly answered any questions I had over email, text, and phone. I was charged with DUI and Greg was able to reduce my fines, my charges, and make it so I didn't have my license suspended or taken away at all! He's a smart and dependable lawyer who isn't going to judge you. He really has your interests in mind and will make sure he gets the best results he can. He works hard for you and he's extremely good at what he does. This is who you want to have represent you if you are facing DUI charges. Look no further!

I am ashamed to admit that I was arrested for a DUI after leaving a company farewell party... Long story short, I knew I needed a good attorney... so after doing plenty of research (my wife and I), we came across Greg Schwesinger and noticed that he had tons of positive reviews. We decided to call, and ended up leaving a message. We continued to keep searching for an attorney in desperation. About an hour later Greg himself actually called us back. He was so helpful from the very beginning. He talked to my wife and answered our many many questions. He was very honest, upfront, and respectful, and he eased our minds. I was shocked to see how much time he was spending over the phone and how he was so understanding. I realized that he was spending his own time after business hours discussing my situation, and giving all sorts of advice before we even knew if we were going to go with him. Needless-to say, by the end of our first conversation (About 2 hours), I knew we found the one we could trust to represent me. I had my hearing today, and I am very pleased to say that Greg came through for me. I ended up getting a really fair deal. I highly recommend Greg Swesinger if you ever find yourself in such an unfortunate situation.

I hired Greg to handle my obstruction case even though I already had a court appointed attorney. I could never get in touch with the court appointed lawyer and I didn't get the feeling that she would work very hard to defend me. Greg on the other was great - he explained everything in detail and helped me understand what was going on with my case and also helped me decide on the best approach to take. He was very diligent, easy to work with and easy to get in touch with. I was not thrilled with having to hire a lawyer at first since I felt that I was not guilty and I even thought about trying to defend myself, but luckily reality set in and I realized that I could not leave things to chance and that I needed help from someone who knows what they are doing. I am glad to have had him on my side - he earned the money and will be the first one I call if I run into any legal problems again.

Greg handled my first offense DUI very competently. He's very knowledgable and compassionate. I didn't know how the process worked and he explained it very well. Reduced the DUI charge to reckless driving, on probation for 2 years. On the DOL side, had to have ignition interlock installed for 3 months and get new license.

What can I say, Greg is the best. He's not going to hold your hand and tell you everything is going to be all right, he'll shoot you straight. He told me what I needed to do and I did it. My case was over 19 days after my arraignment....it was faster and a better outcome than I could have imagined. I have nothing bad to say about Greg. He's dead honest, incredibly knowledgeable, and will talk to you like you are a human. You'd have to be an absolute fool to hire anyone else.

Greg was referred to me by a friend. He successfully won my DOL case and defended/negotiated a reduced charge on the criminal side from a DUI to a Reckless Driving at a time when few prosecutors are willing to negotiate on these issues. Greg was fantastic at making sure I understand all elements of the case and the situation. I can honestly say I did not know a single thing about the process of fighting a DUI charge, the potential consequences or how to go about being proactive in putting myself in the best possible situation. Greg prepared me for all of this. He is incredibly knowledgeable, determined, persistent and really makes you feel like you have someone in your corner fighting for you. That was very important to me. I can't recommend Greg enough and would turn to him in a heartbeat if I were to ever be in a similar situation. A+
