This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar warns the lawyer in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.

I was very upside down on a condo I refinanced in 2006 at the top of the market. I stopped paying and got sued in 2012. He kept the big firm wolves at bay picking apart their legal stuff while the agent he secured got me a short sale, which canceled the litigation right before the auction sale date. I was going to take a big tax hit, too, but he knew of a CPA that gave me awesome advice on how to get help under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act. That saved me tens of thousands in capital gains tax! He stayed in touch the entire time of the case and explained all the possible ups and downs for me. He made a scary process a lot more easy to deal with and got an albatross off my neck.

Mr. Schwartz has assisted me in several areas of legal representation including Workers' Compensation advice and several contractual obligation reviews. He is a wealth of knowledge in that he is willing o spend time with you, helping you to understand your legal rights and needs. He is more than willing to supply you with very appropriate legal advice that will benefit you, all along preparing you for the "what-ifs" of due legal processes. My wife and I could not be more pleased with our relationship with Mr. Schwartz. I can, and regularly do, recommend Mr. Schwartz to anyone needing legal assistance and/or advice without any hesitation.

I feel I wasted almost 7 months hiring Mr. Schwartz as my attorney because nothing was done or filed for my workmans compensation or former employer as far as I know and that if he thought we did not have a claim or case he kept me thinking he was persueing one but did not keep me informed either way and I ended up hiring a new attorney and having to start all over again having wasted a lot of time and money!

I met Ken Schwartz in law school, and we worked together in the Asian Pacific Law & Policy Journal, which he co-founded. In that capacity, I reviewed much of his writing, editing, and analytical skills, all of which were impressive. Since law school, we have discussed a few cases, as I value his legal input. Again, he demonstrated a sharp legal mind and keen understanding of the nuances of the law, including in areas fraught with complexity such as worker's compensation and appellate law. I highly recommend Ken Schwartz and fully trust in his capabilities.
