Michael worked with my wife and I throughout the 5 year period of our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He was supportive and extremely helpful and knowledgeable and always answered our questions fully and concisely. We especially appreciated his prompt response to any and all emails. He was kind and courteous and we were very grateful for his representation.

Phone consultation
I was interested in asking several follow up questions to Atty Schwartz's opinion I found online, concerning Tenant by the entirety law and bank accounts. Not only did he personally take my call in the middle of a busy business day, but he spent a good 10-15 minutes talking the subject matter with me. He asked his own follow up questions of me to make sure he was giving me the best information based on my exact situation, and generally showed himself to be a thoroughly professional, caring attorney whose services I will be happy to employ should there ever be cause. I can see why he has the glowing reviews here.

He take care of his clients!
Michael Schwartz is the best lawyer I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. He takes care of his clients by spending as much time as necessary with them, answering their every single question and he never looks at the clock worrying about how much time he spends with the clients. His goal is for the client to feel comfortable and secure. Usually lawyers are money first, client second. Michael returns your emails and phone calls the same day. He makes sure both parties understood each other and he answers all questions asked so you can feel protected by a good lawyer. Michael will explain the whole process of how to apply for bankruptcy and what to expect and he will support you from the beginning until the end of this process. If you feel stuck because you cannot pay your credit cards anymore there is a great solution out of this situation. You need a lawyer! Don't hesitate to call Michael Schwartz. You will not regret it. I definitely recommend him. Anna

Chapter 13
Michael Schwartz worked for OUR benefit, he was timely, responsive, and pro-active for the entire 3 1/2 years of our program. He showed patience and took initiative, depending on our need or when something wasn't handled correctly through our program.

hire him, now.
Mr. Schwartz was an absolutely wonderful asset. I never thought in my life that I would need to file for bankruptcy. But, I needed neck surgery and then back surgery, with an extended recovery that was unexpected. I lost both my full time and part time job and needed a job. I was out of work a total of 10 months and can only work one job. My debt had increased due to being out of work. There was no way I could possibly pay it back. I tried debt consolidation but even my credit card companies told me to consider filing bankruptcy. So, my search for new information was started. I searched for attorneys in my area and found Michael. We talked over the phone for a brief interview and then I went to meet him in the office. Michael guided me through the process and told me what I needed to do. I followed his advice, paid the fee (definitely worth it) and hired him. Within just over 4 months, my bankruptcy was filed and discharged. Because of Michael's help, I get to start my life over. While it will be challenging for a little while, it's a fresh start without substantial money hanging over my head that I wouldn't be able to pay in a lifetime. I definitely recommend Michael Schwartz to anyone who is considering bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy chapter 13
Michael was a great lawyer. He made sure we were knowledgeable of all the details of our case. If in the last five years I had any questions he got back to me right away. I have recommended him and would gladly do so again.

Review for Michael S. Schwartz
I was a little fearful of going through the bankruptcy process as I did not know what to expect. On our initial meeting Michael put me at ease and was gentlemanly and very courteous. Mine was a fairly large bankruptcy case and he got it finalized much sooner than I expected. He also helped in keeping me at ease during the whole process. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone facing serious debt problems.

Great Experience
Michael Schwartz helped to make a horrible experience as bankruptcy into a most pleasant experience as it could be. He kept us informed every step of the way and explained everything to us, ensuring our complete understanding of the situation. We were unsure of what to do when we first met with Mr. Schwartz, but we were able to better understand our situation and the laws and processes surrounding bankruptcy after meeting. He always got back to us with any questions we had, and made sure we understood everything he was doing.

Excellent Attorney for Bankruptcy Filings
We found Michael to be extremely knowledgeable, responsive and reasonable. Bankruptcy was not an easy decision for us but Michael was understanding and non-judgmental. We were able to handle most everything through e-mail or telephone conversations, which was a nice convenience for us. Michael Kept us fully informed throughout the process. We would recommend him to anyone comtemplating bankruptcy.

Foreclosure / Loan Modification
Michael was extremely helpful with the multiple questions I asked him. I'm going to sleep a lot better just with the information he provided. I would also like to add, me personally not knowing an attorney for my case, it was stressful trusting someone. Michael, proved that he cares the first time I spoke with him.
