About Michele

Learn Michele’s areas of practice.

I enjoy the practice of law and care about each of my clients.  I pride myself on being responsive to my clients when they contact me, and on keeping my clients informed about their cases.   When I started practicing law in 1978 in Jefferson County most attorneys were general practitioners and as such I also practiced general law and gained experience in a broad spectrum of legal fields, including personal injury matters, business law, real estate law, estate planning, contract law, family law and traffic..  I have over 35 years experience helping the people of Jefferson County and the adjoining counties with their legal needs.

| Hired Attorney
I highly recommend the Schwent Law Firm.
Recently, I consulted with and retained attorneys Michele Kaido Schwent and Catherine Martarella to help me with a real estate matter in Imperial. Ultimately, and after considerable study of my situation, they arrived at finding the best solution for me. They also did so at a very reasonable financial cost. Michele and Catherine are smart, competent, very professional, thorough, motivated attorneys, and they examine and study legal situations from many different perspectives in order to come up with the best possible solution for a client. That is exactly what they did for me. I highly recommend the Schwent Law Firm, and will not hesitate to engage them again in the future should the need arise.

Helpful and Trustworthy
I have used Michele in the past for legal advice and business contracts. She is fantastic at what she does. I sat down with her and told her exactly what I wanted in a business contract. She was very helpful and put together a great contract that protected us and our customers. I would recommend Michele to anyone.

Highly Recommend
Michele made me feel comfortable from the first moment I spoke to her on the phone while I was searching for a lawyer. She has never projected the "high and mighty" attitude that many lawyers have. Michele keeps things real and I like that. Michele always has time to talk to me. She is very timely in her responses.
