Mr. Schwartz is professional, patient, and a very knowledgeable lawyer I contracted. Justin is a highly experienced well spoken attorney who goes above and beyond for his clients, and always shares his knowledge of law with me as if I was one of his students. He, in a sense, has inspired me to go back to law school and complete BA so that I could become a well respected attorney just like him.

Justin was a good and attentive lawyer who kept me informed, revived a case over a default judgment, showed resourcefulness and creativity, coming up with approaches few other lawyers would have known about. He defended the estate as fiercely as he did with my cousin (the original client who passed away during the pending case), he wound things up as fast as the court would permit, and in general did a good job.

Thanks for the thorough review of my civil matter.
Although we could not move forward with a claim,
I understand a little more about the legal system.
I would definitely consider retaining you if any other circumstances call for your services.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. I've known Justin for many years. He is about as bright as they come. More importantly, he believes profoundly in what he is doing. He has my respect and my admiration, in addition to my endorsement.
Huma Rashid, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Justin Schwartz is an excellent attorney. He is thorough, thoughtful, and creative. He feels very deeply for his clients, fighting the injustices they face as if these were injustices he suffered himself. He leaves no stone unturned and is committed to doing the best he can for criminal defendants.
