Amazing Attorney
I would highly recommend Mr. Schwartz. I had him for a carrying a concealed weapons charge in Frank Murphy. We got the charge reduced so I didn't have a felony on my record and I got no jail time! Jeff always knew exactly what was going on and was a great help! Thank you

Excellent Service. Above and Beyond
Mr. Schwartz came in and took an almost impossible situation and turned it around. This is not my first rodeo with the the system, unfortunately, However Mr Schwartz saved me from jail which was almost promised to me. If you run into any legal problems this is the lawyer that I would recommend to anybody I truly care about.

Extremely competent and experienced Attorney
I had a DUI charge that was pending for a long time. Attorney Schwartz was able to clear that. After, There was a delay in sending the correct paperwork to the Secretary of State. Mr. Schwartz was able to resolve that with his experience and networking through the 36th district. Highly recommend!

Successfully saw us through a really rough chapter
I retained Mr. Schwartz to help in the criminal defense of my brother, who endured the nightmare of being unfairly accused of a crime while his mental illness was completely ignored and overlooked. This was a long, scary struggle. Throughout the ordeal, Mr. Schwartz was surprisingly responsive to me. He never failed to answer his phone or reply to emails. I think that's rare. Through no fault of his own, the case dragged on forever, but at the end of the day, Mr. Schwartz's expertise and defense strategy proved successful. We won the day and my brother is now a free man. I will be forever grateful for his help.

Really Experienced and impressive
I rarely write reviews, but I told Jeff I would because I am extremely happy with my representation. I hav never had a felony before. We took the case to a jury trial and we won! I don't have a felony on my record and I am free to live my life. What more can I ask for?

One of the best attorneys around
He was one of the attorneys on my criminal defense team. He was one of the most valuable attorneys you could get. It was like he literally knew everyone! The judges, the prosecutors, he was friends with all of them. They say a good lawyer knows the law, a GREAT lawyer knows the judge!
