About Benjamin

Learn Benjamin’s areas of practice.

Attorney Ben Schwartz brings a welcoming and positive attitude to the firm every day. The energy he brings encourages clients to develop a level of trust with him and allows them to feel comfortable talking about their legal and personal situations.

Ben was raised in San Antonio and attended the University of Texas in Austin where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Mathematics. During his time in Austin, he discussed both collegiate and professional sports on his weekly sports radio show. He also served as a sports writer for The Horn in his final two years at UT.

After his time in Austin, Ben moved to Dallas where he received his law degree from SMU Dedman School of Law in 2016. As an attorney in the Criminal Justice Clinic at SMU, he represented numerous clients through all stages of various misdemeanor cases. While still a law student, he tried a criminal case in front of a jury where he defended his client’s rights. The experience that Attorney Schwartz gained through his time in the Criminal Justice Clinic led him to know that protecting the rights and freedoms of the accused was the job for him.

Ben has represented those charged with Class C Misdemeanors all the way to First Degree Felonies. His experience working with prosecutors and in the courtroom leaves him well-prepared to handle all criminal matters. No matter what the charge, you can rest assured that he will work vigorously to get the best outcome possible for your case.

Absolutely the best Attorney
After an extensive 1 1/2 year long case, Ben was relentless on making sure I got the absolute BEST outcome. Not only did he go to bat for me time and time again, but his understanding of my needs and Other obligations, truly ranks him and the edgett law firm at the highest level one could get. I would without a doubt recommend Ben for anyone who’s found themselves in a situation in need of a compassionate attorney who’s ready to fight for them. Thank you Ben and the Edgett law firm for what you’ve done for me and my family!

Professional and compassionate
Every interaction I had was professional and compassionate. Case was settled in the best possible outcome. And if it's true that... "A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer"- Robert Frot With Ben on your side they'll be hard pressed not deciding its yours.

Ben Schwartz
Ben Schwartz recently represented my family in a very serious matter. Ben was extremely professional and attentive from the start. Conference calls on and off work hours, frequent case status updates and always prompt attention, even as the months dragged on due to Covid. In the end, Ben and team’s meticulous preparation and strategy of how to pursue our case prevailed, resulting in a complete dismissal! My family is forever grateful to Ben and his teammates for their help and expertise!

Brilliant Professional & Caring Criminal Defense Attorney with Exceptional Skills
Law Firm of Scott Edgett     We found ourselves in need of a Defense Attorney. We knew the reputation of many law firms as our daughter was a paralegal for various Attorneys. This is when we found Ben Schwartz. He was self assured yet calm. He was easy to talk to & even easier to listen to.     The office had an ambiance of easy professionalism & total excellence! From the moment we walked through the doors to the front desk, we were greeted by Madeleine & we instantly felt at peace with the Edgett Law Firm.   We were a little nervous when we first went in to meet Ben. Mallory, Scott’s equally professional wife & office manager made us feel welcome & confident that we had found a legal home for our problem.   I remember after our initial consultation, we all felt assured with our great find …. Ben Schwartz of Edgett Law Firm was our man for the moment!    Ben Schwartz is a young and creative lawyer with a brilliant mind, salient & sympathetic heart.  Ben did a lot of the leg work on our case, unearthing items of truth like gold nuggets to our hope. As our case moved forward, their strategies were exceptional yet they proceeded with caution. Their command of the law was outstanding & they educated us with every move.    Neither Scott, Ben, Mallory or Madeleine were ever too busy to calm our anxiety & fears, nor were they ever too busy to explain a point of doubt or uncertainty. Would I recommend them.....?  Absolutely & without a doubt I would recommend Ben Schwartz of the Edgett Law Firm. I would hire Ben again & trust him with whatever criminal, legal situation I found myself in.   If you have a need for a Criminal Defense Attorney, look no further than Ben Schwartz of the Edgett Law Firm. Firmly placed in the DFW Metroplex ‘for such a time as this!’ Jonathan & Sharon Settel

Ben Schwartz and Edgett Law firm review
Hello - To whomever it may concern. I have been working with Ben Schwartz little over a year now on my case. During my journey with Ben he has been extremely sensitive to my state of mind and needs. I needed support to hold myself together especially due to mental stress. This has been only case throughout my life and had already spent 1 yr with no result before moving to Ben. Ben not only provided me mental support but has also been instrumental in negotiating with DA. He finally got a dismissal on my case without going to plea. I am 100% positive that any client can rely on Ben for professional and emotional support rest assured Ben's capability can bring to light all the aspects of your case and get you the justice. I came to Ben at a very hard time after wasting my potential time with another attorney. I wish I would have found Ben and Edgett Law firm before. They are together just great. Madeline from Edgett law firm keeps a close eye on your appointments so it don't get lost in one's schedule. I am thankful to everyone who helped me in my case at Edgett Law firm.

Amazing lawyer
When I met with Ben Schwartz to discuss my case, I could already tell my tough situation will be placed in good hands. He communicates extremely well with his clients, giving them hope and optimism that everything will be alright and then boom he delivers! Him getting my felony case that was pending for three years dismissed... literally saved my life and it lifted a ton a weight off my shoulders and for that I am forever grateful. A Very outstanding team!

"Ben is a phenomenal person and effective lawyer — he knows the law and is, bar none, always ready to share information and help other attorneys when they need it. He gives speaking presentations to the Collin County Bar Association and is incredibly patient and helpful in answering questions. His clients love him so I frequently refer others to him. I just did this morning so I thought I'd take a minute to publicly endorse him. You won't find an attorney with a better or friendlier demeanor to represent you in court. I promise you that."
