Honest and Realistic Advice
I am an out of state attorney with a son that got into trouble in Atlanta area. I consulted with Mr. Schwartz after seeing his high reviews. His legal read of the case was Excellent in my opinion and so was his advice. He was realistic about the situation and spoke frankly about the way forward. The issue is not currently being litigated but if and when it does get to that point i have Mr Schwartz on speed dial and will be hiring him on behalf of my son. If you are looking to hire an attorney give him a call and find out for yourself. He promptly returned all of my phone calls, which attorneys failed to do.

Excellent
Andrew is very professional and did an amazing job representing me. One thing that really stood out was that he always keeps in contact with you. He will keep you up to date on any changes that happen. When I left him a message he would always return my call the same day. He also responds to your emails promptly. I was completely satisfied with him and he would be the first person I would call if I ever needed a lawyer's services again.

Trustworthy and honest
If you need an upfront and honest lawyer, look for Andrew Schwartz. We needed a lawyer due to honestly being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Andrew Schwartz handled the case with his expertise and was never too busy to provide updates throughout on the case. I greatly appreciated being able to communicate with him by phone and/or email when necessary. Thanks again for your services.

Excellent attorney
Andrew treated us like we were the only clients he had and returned all calls and emails promptly!! He used every connection and pull he could to get the information we needed to alleviate our legal issues!! He was very fair on his pricing and probably should have charged more....he went above and beyond to help someone he didn't know personally get their life back!! He also doesn't sugar coat stuff he will tell you the worst and best of each situation!! He won't guarantee an outcome just to steal your money!!! Will use him if his services are ever needed again, but hoping we never have to use him again!! Lol!!!

Satisfied Customer
I was very grateful that I found Mr. Schwartz. He was able to get my case dismissed at the first court hearing. He worked on my behalf to restore my good name. I was incredibly intimidated by the proposition of serving jail time. Mr. Schwartz managed to keep me calm and informed. I was apprehensive and heard rumors about the justice system in my county but Andrew has restored my faith in it all. I am grateful for his services and would highly recommend a free consultation with him.

Wonderful Representation/ Highly Recommend
After receiving a traffic citation, which would have led to a suspended license and hefty fine if found guilty, I began to search for an attorney to defend me in court. I was told about Andrew by a friend and decided to give him a call to discuss my case. From the very first call Andrew was as polite and professional as it comes. He had a genuine attitude and I really felt that he would be able to represent my wishes. He always had my best interest at heart and he worked to have my entire case dismissed in a timely manner. Any time there was a change or update he relayed the information quickly and he made himself available to me if I had any concerns to discuss. I was so anxious about this case hanging over my head as well as a possible conviction but Andrew went to work immediately. As a former prosecutor he truly knows his way around the legal system. I am so grateful for the referral and Andrews representation.

Review of Andrew L. Schwartz
Andrew Schwartz was great! He helped me with everything I needed to get done before court. He made me feel comfortable going in front of a judge as a minor and helped me though every process.

Highly Recommended Attorney/Extremely Satisfied Client
Mr. Schwartz just handled a case for my son. Mr. Schwartz was very proactive with the case involved. As with any parent, your main concern is your child therefore; your expectations are at highest. Mr. Schwartz met and exceeded those expectations. The punishment fit the crime without using the client as an example. Highly recommending Mr. Schwartz as a professional attorney.

Professional, Creative and Highly Effective
Andrew managed to keep my wife out of jail plain and simple. I retained Andrew for multiple cases in two counties. One county had a very strict Judge that does not allow for the suspension of minimum jail times. Andrew managed to move the supervision of initial sentence to another county which allows for the suspension of sentences contingent on the successful enrollment and completion of court supervised programs. This type of transfer, to our knowledge had never been done before and it kept my wife from having to spend a single day in jail. Andrew not only kept us informed of our options at all times, he crafted and executed a brilliant plan that has gotten my wife into a great program that is making a huge difference in our lives. I highly recommend his services.

Very Professional / Knowledgeable
Andrew was very knowledgeable of the laws pertaining to my case, and walked me through the process. He was always very responsive to inquiries no matter how trivial they may have been. He defended me to the best of his ability and I don't think you can ask for anymore than that.

Issue with Retail Store
My wife and I made a purchase at a retail store and were later sued by the the company for having the credit card company do a chargeback for the defective item we purchased. Andrew worked to try to settle the dispute with the retail store, but after they refused, Andrew defended us in court and we won our case. Andrew did a great job defending us and presenting our case in court. He is professional and honest. We will highly recommend him to others.
