Mr. Schwarz is very professional and extremely personable. My husband and I contacted him regarding felony fraud charges against my husband. We were never aware of these charges until my husband was detained; causing hardship on our family and causing a slew of other legal problems for my husband; including being able to obtain a driver's license, on which our livelihood is dependent. From the beginning, Mr. Schwarz approached our case with genuine concern and desire to help us. (We had contacted another attorney prior to him who had not been as amicable with his response during our consultation), but Mr. Schwarz was very personable and understanding and got to work from the moment we left his office after having retained him. This was a nightmare for us to go through and we feared the worst; thinking we were looking at months of court appearances before the issue was resolved; however, thanks to Mr. Schwarz' diligence and professionalism, the charges against my husband were dismissed and he was able to get a license in less than two months with no court appearance. He even helped us have a minor traffic violation dismissed indirectly related to the case during the process!! I can not thank Mr. Schwarz enough and would recommend him wholeheartedly to help anyone with their legal troubles! You will not be disappointed and more importantly, will be treated like a human being, not just another client!

Greg represented me in a family domestic violence case. I cannot recommend Greg enough for many reasons. He really cares. Greg is an expert in the nuances of the justice system and how to negotiate the details of a plea with a DA.
These types of cases are extremely serious and after my initial attorney had not reviewed my final sentence properly I spent months of heartache, not seeing my children due to a court procedural error. I departed from my local attorney and took Greg fulltime. In 48 hours negotiating with the DA Greg got the sentence corrected with no court appearance and the initial plea spirit of seeing my kids corrected which the other attorney was not able to do in 6 months.
Most importantly I found him to be an exceptional human being. He will give you 100%. Greg is responsive and communicates in a timely manner. I highly recommend him to help you get the best outcome on your case. I wish I had started earlier on the case with him. It would have saved me a lot of stress and time.

Greg defended my daughter in a traffic violation case that could have caused her to have points on her driving record. Greg gave us perfect advice concerning what needed to please the court to lower the charge and bring it to a conclusion. He was courteous and well informed; he showed up in court on time and worked well to see us on our way from the courthouse in short order. I would recommend him highly.

I highly recommend him to anyone seeking top level criminal defense representation.
