Brett literally saved and changed my son's life..If I didnt call him, and his partner John didnt pick up that phone that morning, my son would be still in jail and looking at his life as we know it being over. Dont even think of using any other lawyer for a criminal offense.

We hired Brett Schwartz to defend my son who was facing false but extremely serious allegations of rape, sexual assault, domestic violence and a protective order against his eight year old son. He had overcome all odds of winning a military Court Marshall and now faced a civil proceeding where the odds were stacked against him once again. He was living a nightmare and faced a future where he would not be able to contact his son for over ten years. His life, his career, his whole world was falling apart.
We needed an attorney who would fight for him, believe in him and go above and beyond the call of duty to represent him and win. We found Brett Schwartz and we are eternally grateful.
After 14 months of hell and uncertainty in a case that was supposed to last an afternoon and ended up lasting three days, Mr. Schwartz achieved the unbelievable outcome. He completely discredited all the lies and false accusations resulting in the judge admonishing his accuser on her untrue testimony and lack of credibility and the case was dismissed. He won for my son and our family.
Brett truly believed in my son and defended him to the very end. His strategic cross examination of my son's accuser, his wife, exposed lies, collusion, and witnesses who could not be believed. He totally turned the tables in the courtroom, the prosecution was in disarray and disbelief.
His confidence, his refusal to give up or give in, his positive approach, his compassion, fighting spirit and professionalism make him an outstanding attorney and the only choice anyone should make if you are looking to win your case. We highly recommend Brett Schwartz. He won against all odds.
We are so thankful that we found you Brett, We know you will face many more tough cases, yet we are so confident that you will continue to win like you did for us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

On 21 September 2015 I was arrested and thrown into a military prison. I was falsely accused of rape and domestic violence by my wife. I had been married for 8 years and was in the United States Coast Guard. I hired Mr. Brett Schwartz to defend or litigate a civil injunction/retraining order that my wife filed with the county. My wife stated that I was dangerous and abusive to her and my son. I highly recommend, Mr. Schwartz as he is very professional, genuine, and honest and will work diligently to litigate your case, quickly and efficiently with the best possible outcome. After spending 10 months in pre-trial confinement, I was found not guilty of rape and domestic violence by a military jury panel. I was returned back to service with the Untitled States Coast Guard. While I was in pre-trial confinement waiting for my federal criminal trial, Mr. Schwartz extended my civil injunction/hearing on more than 4 occasions until I was free form confinement. On 16 November during a 20 hour civil hearing, in Miami Fl, Mr. Brett Schwartz was able to litigate in front of a female Judge that my wife was a liar, vindictive, manipulative and a narcissistic person willing to do anything to put her husband in jail. Mr. Schwartz’s knowledge of the law and courtroom tactics was quite evident as he made relevant and aggressive objections to the opposing council on numerous occasions. His cross examination technique is impeccable and he was able to impeach my wife on multiple occasions. Brett Schwartz is without a doubt the best civilian lawyer money can buy and is an amazing speaker. Mr. Schwartz is a great “General” and will lead you into battle in the courtroom with honor and integrity and will give you his all. Mr. Schwartz was able to lead me to victory that day and the permanent injunction was denied by the Judge and she dismissed the case in my favor. Trust Mr. Schwartz to lead you to victory. Mr. Schwartz had the utmost respect, professionalism and trustworthiness during my court proceedings. He kept me very informed and genuinely cared about my case which made me feel safe with my decision to hire him. He is worth every dime I paid.
