I had never done bankruptcy before (I was a legal secretary for over 30 years but never in this field) and was very nervous and scared. Mr. Schwartz and his staff took away all my fears and helped me through this proceeding. After the first meeting, I signed on to have him represent me. All questions regarding procedures and legalities were answered promptly and explained in "layman's" terms so I could understand what was going on. Also, having health issues it was imperative that I go through this procedure so I could concentrate on my health and not the debts that I incurred after becoming ill, and the stress that it was causing.

What I liked about Mr. Schwartz is that he does not like to waist time and gets down to the point. Meetings are short but to the point. Most communication with Mr. Schwartz and his associates were done very discreetly, most of the time by email.
I highly recommend Mr. Schwartz.

My husband and I brought Mr. Schwartz a very difficult and complex legal bankruptcy case. We knew it would take an exceptional legal team to manage the complicated aspects of our financial situation and work with the trustee in our behalf. We are most pleased to write that Mr. Schwarz handled our case with the utmost professionalism and competence and the outcome he achieved was substantially better than we had even hoped for.

I endorse Mr. Schwartz's work. I have worked on numerous matters with him and entrusted him with many of my clients over the years. He is a consummate professional and an expert in the bankruptcy arena. Very few lawyers understand consumer bankruptcy law the way Mr. Schwartz does.
