Andrew R. Schwartz is an exceptional attorney who I’ve had the honor and pleasure to have known both personally and professionally for the past 20 years. I highly recommend his quality legal services. I trust his intelligence, admire his professionalism and envy his devotion to detail.
Over the years, Andy has represented myself and family members on various complicated legal matters, each time achieving results exceeding expectations - thanks to his thoughtful guidance, impressive work ethic and zealous advocacy.
Andy is a knowledgeable legal authority educating attorneys by presenting Continuing Legal Education seminars and publishing many well-researched and detailed Bar Journal articles on a variety of legal topics.
Often, the highest compliment paid to him is when his adversaries retain his services after concluding a legal matter. This reflects his professionalism, commitment to excellence and trustworthiness.
I am an attorney myself and regularly consult with Andy on a variety of legal matters. I’ve always found him to be a tremendous resource - his clear explanation of complicated legal issues and sound advice demonstrate his depth of knowledge and experience. He always strives to provide the highest quality services and regularly achieves outstanding results.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Andy is one of the brightest and most capable commercial litigators I have worked with. He is highly creative in his approach to litigation, and he is the first lawyer I think of when referring a case of that nature. Andy also has a broad transactional background enabling him to handle corporate, real estate, and estate planning matters. I enthusiastically recommend Andy as a highly qualified and aggressive litigator.
