There are no words to properly express our heartfelt gratitude to Brett and the entire firm for the level of expertise and professionalism we were given as I helped a family member get through a critical time. We had already spent six weeks getting the runaround from another firm when I finally gave up and called Hager and Schwartz. Within hours we had a plan of action, and any time we had questions Brett immediately returned calls, emails and texts...which is almost unheard of in this industry! I would gladly use him again!

There are not enough positive things I can say about Attorney Brett Schwartz and his stellar representation of a member of my family. I am an attorney myself and was frightened when a close family member was charged, and overcharged, with multiple criminal offenses. They were not blameless, but the charges if left undefended could have let to massive fines and even incarceration, for someone with no serious criminal convictions. We called Attorney Schwartz in what I would say was a state of panic, and fear, and by the end of a 10 minute phone call his words “I can help” were what we needed to hear and in fact, completely true, as the case ended with no convictions, no jail time, no fines, and only a probationary period. His decades of experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney, give him experience and knowledge of the criminal court system that cannot be duplicated, and help the firm to achieve the best possible results. Not only did Brett Schwartz go above and beyond his obligations to attend to our case, he was available literally 24/7 for any and all questions and concerns, explained the plan and what we had to do on our end, and followed through every step of the way to achieve what he had informed us was possible for these charges. In addition his staff were helpful, friendly, and copied us on things like answers and filings, so we were always up to date on the status of things, and not fearful of what was going on. When you are going through something as scary as the criminal justice system, the humanity of dealing with such a caring and competent law firm is invaluable. I would highly recommend the office of Hager and Schwartz in the future for anyone needed legal assistance in Florida. They were excellent.

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.

Took care of everything in a timely manner. When I had a question it was answered extremely fast. Attended court for me each time I only had to go once. Extremely knowledgeable of the law but most importantly very down to earth and a great guy. Told me and guided me each step of the way and got sentence and probation reduced. I would recommend Brett to anyone.

I hired Attorney Brett Schwartz and I am beyond pleased with my experience. It was a scary ride for me however he was able to keep me calm and explain how the process works and kept me updated consistently. If i had any questions regarding the case I could easily call, text, or e-mail and he would always respond in a timely manner. He was confident that he could handle the case and therefore he did! The case got dismissed and therefore he did exactly what I hired him to do. Also, he helped immensely by allowing me to pay him by payments which made it much easier for me. He certainly knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him 10 stars!

Our experience with Brett Schwartz was excellent. He was professional and timely and explained everything, options and what needed to be done, much more clearly than other lawyers we talked to. And the fees we paid were reasonable, but not exorbitant. They helped us negotiate a challenging legal situation, made it much easier and painless than we expected. I would recommend Brett to friends and family needing legal counsel in Miami.
I know how this sounds, but I am not a paid blogger, just a satisfied client.

Brett was hired by my family to cover a case in juvenile court for my nephew. He was unable to keep case in juvenile court and he was able to allow him to go to a program so when program is over he would not have a record. He explained everything to my family and updated us on the case. He never rushed because each time we appeared for court it was always some type of delay. I would recommend him to anyone for anytime of case.

Hired Brett to take care of my son's problem and taking in consideration I was overseas at the time and found him through Avvo, let's say I was bit apprehensive of what I was going to get and if I was throwing my money away. But hey, I ended up hitting the lotto (and I can say that by bad experiences I had with other attorneys I hired in the past for different cases) and Brett lived up to all of my expectations and more. He was not cheap, but boy he was worth every penny! What I liked the most was that he was available every time I called him and his assistant was on the money too responding to my emails promptly. My son's case was finalized and the outcome was pretty much what we anticipated. I definitely recommend Brett to anyone who is in search of an honest attorney (kinda a hard these days...) and hard worker and most importantly he is there for you any time you call.
