Grant Schwarz is a Civil Trial Attorney and 4th Amendment Lawyer headquartered in sunny Florida. Grant focuses his practice in the areas of personal injury including premises liability and products liability.

Prior to starting his own firm, Grant worked as a prosecutor for the State of Florida. As a prosecutor, Grant tried 50 jury trials, conducted hundreds of non-jury trials ranging from simple drug possession to economic crimes and violent felony offenses. Fighting for the State of Florida and for victims of crime gave Grant the motivation to continue fighting for what is right and to stand up for victim's rights.

After years as a State Prosecutor, Grant joined a nationally recognized law firm where he litigated 4th amendment issues and personal injury cases. Over the years, it became apparent that bed bugs were becoming a troublesome problem across the United States. Grant was approached by a young family who had been injured at a local hotel. The family was awarded a large settlement after months of negotiations. After that, Grant started learning as much as he could about bed bugs. Grant read many books about bed bugs, attended pest management seminars and cultivated relationships with pest management professionals and entomologists. After many successful years of practice and litigation, Grant decided to focus his work on bed bug injury cases. Grant has gained a national reputation as a passionate trial lawyer.

Grant started Bed Bug Law with the idea that nobody should have to suffer injuries while they are at their most vulnerable. Bed bug injuries occur most often while the victim is asleep in bed or simply relaxing at home. Sleep and rest are crucial elements to maintaining good mental and physical health. Bed bug bites are painful, last for weeks and can even cause permanent scarring. The mental impact of bed bugs can affect victims for a lifetime. Nobody should have to suffer bed bug bites at a hotel, motel, resort, cruise ship, Airbnb or any other rental property. Further, Grant believes that one of the worst things that can happen to a person's mental health is when their own home becomes infested with bed bugs. This most often occurs after the delivery of recently purchased or rented of furniture.

Bed Bug cases are often opposed aggressively by defendants and will often require litigation in State and Federal Court systems or through the American Arbitration Association. Grant has dedicated his career to speaking up for those who cannot and to make every effort to make hotel owners and operators, apartment owners and operators, and furniture retailers pay for exposing his clients to bed bugs. Grant is a skilled negotiator, who has been particularly successful in resolving disputes without costly and time-consuming litigation. Grant believes that gathering evidence and preparing each case as though it were going to trial is an important practice in bed bug cases.

Despite his passion for his work and the law, Grant most enjoys his time spent with his family and caring for his garden. Grant has a large collection of rare and exotic plants, flowers, and trees.

10 Star Lawyer
I would like to thank Mr. Schwarz for taking our case. During the free consolation, he was able to provide me with helpful information that no other attorney would help with. When it came to payment, I was shocked at how reasonable Mr. Schwarz fee was to take the case. He was upfront with all cost and the process.He also gave me time to decide, so I didn’t feel pressured. Long story short, he was able to help free his client that was incarcerated in another state for a Broward county case. Although the court house shut down due to Hurricane Ian, Mr. Schwarz was able to drop the warrant, lift the extradition hold, the bond was dropped, and my family member was released from jail in a matter of two week! THAT WAS UNBELIEVABLE! He didn’t stop there. Less than two weeks later, Mr. Schwarz was able to get the entire case was DISMISSED! THIS LAWYER DESERVES 10 STARS! HE DID EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO, AND THE PROCESS WAS FASTER THAN WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. We are very grateful for all of the hard work and great efforts put into helping resolve our case! THIS IS A LAWER I WILL KEEP ON SPEED DIAL! Mr. Schwarz was and is very respectful, professional, honest, and dedicated to his clients. We are more than thankful for your help!

Excellent Attorney
It has been a pleasure working with Grant . He is professional, honest, and will do his best to get you results. My experience has been a positive and I highly recommend. What like the most is that he works with his clients who are on a budget not like other lawyers who see you as a $ sign, and lack interest in providing top service. He was able remedy my case and get me the results I was looking for.

CANT THANK HIM ENOUGH
Grant went above and beyond for me! I live In Ohio and needed a lawyer to manage an old case in Lauderdale! What was supposed to just be a simple case regarding a FTA warrant turned into a nightmare when I got detained in Ohio! Not only did he get me out of jail as fast as possible, he got my extradition waved, my probation violation dismissed, and advocated for me above and beyond all expectations! He was kind, understanding, kept in constant contact with me and my family (with my consent of course) and never once missed a beat! He was super fast and diligent with his responses and assured me, not only with his words but also with his constant actions, that I was in amazing hands! Should I ever need a lawyer again I wouldn’t hesitate to call him again! In fact, I wouldn’t trust my case with anyone else!

Efficient attorney
After being completely surprised and caught of guard from a charge from 16 years ago that I thought no longer exsisited and thought it was cleared it popped up as a felony when I was in the middle of college pursuing medical field and Grant was the first attorney I found by Google due to his reviews considering I had not lived in Florida in over 15 years. That same day of talking to him he was at the court house receiving my records and put in as representation and has hope it can be resolved in a few weeks. I can not be more pleased for someone who knows nothing about me or the case but yet so willing to jump on it to help. I am forever grateful and sure there will be a resolution to this soon.

Great Law Office
Itbtook some month to convince the counter party for a settlement but in the end we won. I had an injury case against a Motel Chain in Elizabeth, New Jersey because of bedbugs in the room. I am a business man from Germany. The communication with the Law office was no Problem although the lawyers were fully occupied with work. But all in all very satisfying.

Great Personal Injury Attorney
My family and I were injured at a hotel in Orlando last summer. Grant Schwarz and staff were top notch in getting my case signed up, investigated and settled. Attorney Grant Schwarz kept us informed at every phase of the process and we could not be happier with the outcome. Thank you again.

Attentive, extremely knowledgeable, helpful and genuine!
Mr. Grant I. Schwarz from start to finish of my case knew exactly what he was doing. He came to my home and made our initial consultation extremely easy and as stress free as he could. He did his research and presented me with all possible outcomes, never making false claims or promises along the way. He has an open line of communication if you have a question, any question at all, and never makes you feel silly for asking. His office staff are friendly and take thorough messages, too. That was important to me. Grant Schwarz is presentable and professional at court, goes in with confidence and of course... he came out a winner for me and my case! He's not lying when he says he's a lawyer that doesn't lose. Have confidence that when you hire Grant, you're hiring the best! He truly cares about protecting his clients best interest and will not let you down.

Trust Grant Schwartz
I got in to some trouble on vacation in Miami, and my I have never been in trouble before. I was literally freaking out! Grant gave the the piece of mind I needed to continue about my life with his promise to do everything he could to help me out of my situation. If I had questions all I had to do was call to sent a text message and he was there with an answer, and reassurance that he was taking care of everything. Grant got my case thrown out just like he said would happen! He is very confident and know exactly what he is doing. I suggest if u are in a bind that Grant Schwartz is the man to help you out. Thank you so much Grant, you saved my life!

Good Honest Lawyer
Mr Schwarz was responsive to all my questions, kept me informed of the status of my case and achieved a favorable outcome. I highly recommend him.

Outstanding service from lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz.
Lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz provides outstanding service. I recently hired him for my case earlier this year and on the day of the trial it got dismissed with ease. Not only did that case get dismissed but my first case three years ago got dismissed as well with Grant by my side. Mr.Schwarz is a reliable lawyer who I would recommend to anybody having any sort of legal issues. Grant is an extremely caring lawyer who will answer all questions that you have and will respond to any e-mails, texts, or phone calls that you send his direction. I cannot forget to mention his confidence in the courtroom is amazing and it truly shows his greatness. Grant Ian Schwarz is the right lawyer for you. Thank you for everything Grant.

Best Lawyer in Hollywood FL
Grant Schwarz is a great lawyer for many reasons in my book. My case got dismiss because he's very professional and cares about his client. This was the first time I ever got in trouble with the law and he demonstrate confidence with somebody he never met. I met my Attorney Grant Schwarz at court and he seem very organize and down to earth. My confidence grew and I was able to zoom out the legal issues that I was facing because I knew my lawyer had my best interest. I strongly recommend Attorney Grant Schwarz to anybody who wants a good lawyer. Thanks again. God Bless

I can not thank you enough
I hired Grant Schwarz to represent me for my felony case. Grant Schwarz was always available any time to discuss my case and explain how the system worked. I respected the way that he explained the pros and cons of my case and was able to manage my expectations on the outcome of my charge. Grant really worked with me and made me feel comfortable even though my freedom was in the balance. Ultimately, the charges were reduced and Grant is now in the process of having my record sealed. I cannot thank him enough and I would always recommend Grant to others. I really owe my future to Grant and I wanted to write this review to thank him. I am sorry for not putting my name online, but Grant knows who I am. Thank you again.
