Attorney Schwartz was hired to work on a VERY complicated and delicate OUI matter. This particular case involved a number of factors that could be considered to be "abnormal", and Mr. Schwartz was nothing short of articulate, aggressive, talented, prompt, and caring. He thought creatively about how to manage the problem at hand, and was able to achieve an outcome that was completely unexpected!! In short....he sincerely exceeded ALL of my expectations, and he did it all with a demeanor of someone who was genuinely invested in his clients best outcome. Top level attorney...but more importantly....a top level human being.

Stephen Schwartz represented a family member for me via a referral only, on very short notice, and with a very complicated and bifurcated criminal felony charge that also overlapped a substance abuse (alcoholism) condition and a separate and concurrent difficult divorce proceeding involving the same family member. Steve had to start his representation of the felony charge with all of the other complications ongoing and concurrent. Steve engaged with the attorney handling the divorce and assisted without asking, providing valuable assistance. Steve recommended the rehab facility we chose and it was an outstanding choice. Steve ultimately negotiated with the State and other attorneys involved to have the felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor and essentially no jail time or probation. My family member owes his chance at a new life to Steve. Steve is exceptional at what he does and he clearly is an expert at understanding Maine law, Further, it is clear to me from observation during the various proceedings that other attorneys, both private and with the State, highly respect Steve. It is very noticeable. Lastly, Steve is a very moral, kind and patient man. I have worked with many attorneys in my own career and Steve is exceptional in all aspects I would ask for in legal counsel.

I hired Steve to represent me in an OUI case after he was highly recommended by one of his peers in the legal profession.
Steve was a pleasure to work with. He was patient, thorough and incredibly knowledgeable when it came to educating me on the law and walking me through each and every step of the process.
My case was ultimately dismissed based on inadequate evidence after I hired his firm to represent me.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs representation for charges of this nature
