I rarely write positive reviews about anyone (let alone the quality of professional legal services I receive from lawyers, because I expect extraordinary legal services from them to begin with). However, in this rare instance, I believe a stellar review is merited and so here is my review of Laurence Allen Schwartz, who represented me during my divorce.
I am a corporate/securities lawyer for over 15 years, rated AV Preeminent® by Martindale-Hubble. I am a graduate of NYU School of Law and have worked at some of the world's largest and prestigious international law firms representing various Fortune 500 companies. My clients expect the highest quality of legal services from me, therefore I hold other lawyers to the same standard.
Facing the possibility of a very traumatic and contentious divorce involving child custody, child support, alimony subject to a challenge to a prenuptial agreement, and facing significant equitable distribution issues, I started searching for a divorce attorney. I conducted extensive research, sought referrals from colleagues, and read online reviews.
I wanted a divorce attorney that was a highly experienced, reputable, personable (not egotistical, arrogant and condescending as many lawyers are), empathic (sensitive to my feelings), well-reviewed by clients and other attorneys, and who charged reasonable legal fees.
As a result of my research, I chose Laurence Allen Schwartz. Based on his advice, in light of the issues in my case, we brought in Lynn Britt as our forensic accountant. Armed with this "dynamic duo", my divorce and all related issues were equitably resolved through mediation in record time (seven weeks!). In addition, by promptly participating in mediation (avoiding a long, expensive, bitter, and emotionally traumatic court battle), my ex-wife and I remain on good terms, which is a blessing for the sake of our children.
I could not be happier with Mr. Schwartz and highly recommend him to anyone in need of high quality representation in their divorce.
