Special Needs Litigation
I hired Joshua to secure guardianship and adult disabled support for my son. Though the process itself was highly unpleasant and took an excessive of time due to my ex; Joshua's calm and professional demeanor helped me get through this difficult time.

Good Judgment
Joshua was referred to me by another attorney (who’s experience extends all the way to the US Supreme Court) as extremely well qualified for my case. And this was true. Joshua has great communication skills, willingness to listen, and very good judgment. He and his colleagues were an effective team for me.

Honest, caring, and upfront!!!
I can’t say enough about Josh and is whole staff. He took care of me for my divorce. Josh made sure that not only was everything fair for me but fair for my ex wife as well. My ex and I get a long so I wanted to make sure this was done amicably. When something came up that wasn’t fair for me he addressed the issue and took care of it right away. Josh always returned my calls and emails in a very timely manner. Thank you to Josh and staff for what could be a horrible experience and made it as smooth as possible. I would refer my family and friends to Josh for sure.

Best in Illinois
Joshua was originally referred to me and I now understand why. Going through a divorce is stressful for anyone but Joshua really helped fight my case. He was diligent, responsive and very attentive to my concerns. He was always punctual to court hearings and our scheduled phone calls and he independently followed up with opposing counsel if there were any delays. I will continue to refer him to anyone I know for legal matters. Truly Joshua is the best lawyer out there for your matters.

Excellent representation
I retained Joshua’s services as the attorney for my divorce proceedings. Josh was thorough, dedicated, managed things during the dissolution proceedings in a professional manner, and as expedient a manner as possible when interacting with other parties. He always answered my questions and addressed my concerns thoroughly and with great attention to my needs as his client. I don’t think I would have felt as comfortable, or as satisfied, with another attorney because Joshua came to the table with compassion and with a view to achieve my goals to the best of his ability. I always felt that professionally he used every tool possible throughout the proceedings. I would thoroughly recommend him to any client. His compassion and dedication is evident from the initial consultation to the present day where he has left the professional relationship open to any further need to retain him as counsel, and I applaud his commitment to his clients throughout the entire process for which they retain his services.

Joshua is one of the best attorneys in the business. He took great control and good care of my case. I honestly felt no stress during the process and I was well advised. At the end of my case, I was completely satisfied. Whatever your situation, he will take good care of you.

Fantastic Representation
Josh has represented myself and my children several times during my contentious divorce and custody proceedings. He has been fantastic. He is always organized, articulate, well respected in court. He knows what he is doing and how to handle things. I never had to worry he wouldn't be prepared or have our best interests in mind. He was easy to talk to and even get ahold of when needed. His experience makes him a very valuable attorney in this realm. I can't say enough good things about him or this firm!

Great attorney!
had Josh represent me for over 2.5 years and I cannot say enough good things. He was a great attorney, very responsive, always kept me in the loop, and always made me feel at ease when going into a court date. Of course you always want an attorney that's on your side, but you also need someone to be realistic so you know all possible outcomes of the situation. In the end, we were able to get what I was asking for and I am beyond happy to be done with this situation! Very rarely, Marc would need to stand in if Josh was out and he was just as a great!

Excellent Attorney
I couldn't have found a better attorney to work with to shed 350 pounds of dead weight from my life (aka divorce). Joshua is a very caring, professional attorney who was patient during my occasional venting and calm as he clearly explained what I needed to know and do to obtain my divorce. He was persistent with getting needed information from opposing counsel. He fought for me and, in the end, I got the assets I originally set out to obtain. I could not have done that without Joshua. Thank you for a job well done!!

Great experience
Mr. Schwartz was so helpful in resolving our guardianship matter. He was very efficient and got the case wrapped up very quickly. I will keep his information for the future and anytime we need an attorney again! Our whole family appreciates him and his team!

Terrific lawyer!
Joshua was not only competent and thorough, but he made litigation less stressful because of his compassion and demeanor. Very smart, very responsive to the client. He fights for the client while being fair. Would recommend him to anyone for litigation .

Family Run Business
Joshua and staff at Schwartz Wolf and Bernstein are a kind, caring and attentive group of humans. The needs of my two children and myself were a priority throughout the divorce process. Steps and processes were explained. Calls and emails were answered in a timely fashion. At the most emotionally distressing event such as divorce, you can trust that you will be supported.

Special Needs Litigation
Attorney Joshua Schwartz went above and beyond with my legal needs regarding my Special Needs son within a divorced situation. He clearly understood the concerns that a mother of a special needs child faces and went to great lengths to fight for what was in the best interest of me and my child. Joshua explained all matters in a way that I could easily understand, he was readily available whenever I needed him and easy to get a hold of. He has a good sense of humor and I felt at ease when talking/meeting with him. I would highly refer Joshua to anyone looking for representation in the area of divorce/separation...but more importantly, when it involves special needs children. I could not have wished for a better attorney.

Highly Recommend!
Josh is a fantastic attorney! I retained his services to secure adult disabled child support and guardianship for my son and he did not disappoint. What should have been a few straightforward meetings became an...interesting... and protracted court battle with my ex-husband. Josh helped me obtain a settlement for my son that was more than I expected and, just as importantly, respected me throughout the process. He is thorough and appropriate in his communications and I never felt he was padding a bill. Josh is straight shooter. Sharp, dedicated, and professional. He's the guy you want representing you, not against you as opposing counsel!

Amazing advocate
I hired Josh to redo my custody agreement. He was always willing to do what I wanted, always willing to listen, amd didn't hesitate to tell it to me straight. Josh helped me to navigate the entire process. He let me know what to put my time / money / energy into amd what to let go.

Visitation during Covid-19 Pandemic
Joshua was hired to re-instate visitation that was still arbitrarily denied by a mother in spite of Illinois removing lockdown restrictions. He performed with persistence, without compromising the best interests of the child and the father. He was very prompt in all written, phone and e-mail communications to all parties involved. He clearly distills issues and positions without ambiguity, but also with honesty and integrity.

Absolute professionals
Joshua and his staff didn’t miss a step handling my case even though they took the case with COVID was at its worst. He was very good at keeping communication open so I knew what was going on every step of the way and I very much appreciated how he was sympathetic to the additional stress that my family was dealing with I will not hesitate to call on Josh again to represent me in the future
