Academic dishonesty case
I had been accused of academic dishonesty and had evidence showing that it could not have been me. I presented this at a hearing and the board agreed I couldn’t have done it but thought I knew who had and were still going to find me responsible . It was at this point that I decided to seek the help of a lawyer and found Brandon. He was so responsive which was amazing since the appeal I wanted to submit had a fast approaching deadline. He was always easily accessible if I wanted to talk through any details of the case and helped me put together a very strong appeal in a very short period of time. He ended up getting my case dropped and I was fully exonerated. I do not think things would have gone as smoothly or as well as they did if I had not hired him.

Brandon Schwartz Review
I wanted to thank my lawyer, Brandon Schwartz, for representing me in my case. This has been a stressful case that I was dealing with for a number of years. Mr. Schwartz was able to assuage my fears through this strenuous process leading up to the trial. He navigated me on the types of details needed from me in order to provide the best legal representation. I admire Mr. Schwartz’s composure and work ethic. But most of all, during the trial his defense for me had so much passion and zeal, it would make one believe that he was fighting for his own family member. Ironically he was fiery, yet tact; his words were vehement, yet respectful to the judge and opposing party. And through his counsel and his one time representation, he managed to win the case for me. My only regret was not using an outstanding lawyer as Mr. Schwartz earlier. And would like to again express my deepest appreciation for his help, and can feel assured to have him by my side for any unexpected developments. I will say having a lawyer by your side like Mr. Schwartz will give anyone both the confidence and peace of mind that you have a true legal representation.

Such a seamless and Successful experience!!
Brandon was amazing. I found him after many attorneys would not take my case. It was an employment hostile environment suit. From the start Brandon was transparent, he was very patient with me. He explained everything step by step. He commuted to what my best options were. He fought very hard for me and believed in me and my case which is exactly at that time. I would recommend Brandon to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy lawyer!

Settlement
Mr. Schwartz demonstrated a positive representation to a settlement case in which I was disputing. As complicated as cases may be at times, Mr. Schwartz made a great effort on my case and was very persistent to not only what I was trying to achieve but to the well being of my needs of the matter. He helped me to perceive a “bigger” picture of how the future of the settlement would be. His consistency and understanding of my case brought a very positive outcome. I highly recommend Brandon S. Schwartz.

Professional, Knowledgeable, and Caring
What can I say? I was recently involved in a contract dispute with three large firms, kind of David versus Goliath legal fight. I immediately contacted Brandon Schwartz, and within 2 hours, I had a phone call with Brandon directly. I was uncertain as to how this would all turn out, knowing that the defendants had very deep pockets. Brandon and his team kept me educated throughout the entire process until we reached a settlement with the defendants. There were some tough conversations along the way, and things that I didn't want to hear. However, the one thing Brandon kept telling me was that regardless of the power of the defendants, I was wronged, and he believed that the court would find in my favor. Well, he was right, as it appears that the defendants came to the same conclusion and acquiesced to a settlement. He was always suggesting ways to lessen the cost of each step; this runs contrary to many law firms that will unnecessarily prolong a case to keep billing you. I really can't say enough great things about Brandon Schwartz and this firm. I feel like we just ended a personal relationship with the conclusion of the case. I hope I never need to call them again other than to say hi or to introduce others to him. However, if I do, I know once again I will be in great hands.

The Impossible
In my case involving Syracuse University's Academic Integrity allegations, it seemed as if my fate had already been sealed. The school was going to do everything in their power to convict me and their case was very strong. This did not discourage Brandon, however. He took my case hands on and was completely invested in proving my innocence, as well as my wellbeing throughout the entire process. He was always available to meet when needed and provided all the guidance and knowledge necessary to win, and we did just that. I truly don't know what I would have done without Brandon's help, and I recommend him 100%.

Academic Integrity Investigation
We found Brandon in the nick of time. Our son was accused of cheating in college while he was already on Academic Probation from earlier poor grades - All of this in the midst of him having and recovering from COVID. Other attorneys didn't return calls after speaking with us or said they couldn't help us. Brandon immediately provided advice on how to proceed and guided us through each step. He was knowledgeable about the process and potential outcomes. He spent time to understand all the facts and elicited information from the school that we would not have known to ask. It was reassuring to have his counsel and advocacy with the school's administration which was intimidating to us. In the end our son was found not guilty and the case against him was dismissed completely. This was the best possible outcome and we don't think it would have been possible without Brandon's advice, patience, thoroughness and expertise. If he had been found guilty, I would still be thankful for the help Brandon provided because I know we presented the best defense and did what we could to advocate for our son. This was an incredibly stressful situation for us as parents and for our son living through this accusation while trying to recover from COVID, still do his school work and worry he may be kicked out of school. I highly recommend Brandon.

Code of Conduct Accusation
Brandon Schwartz provided legal services in conjunction with allegation of violation of student code of conduct. Brandon's review and legal support was exceptional. He identified the improper procedures that resulted in the allegation and mounted a very strong rebuttal that resulted in a full acquittal of all charges. I would recommend his services to anyone seeking professional legal assistance.
