Resolved very complex Partnership Employment issue
Jim and his staff worked with us for more then 5 years on other matters with success as our corporate counselor before we had his firm take on a very complex, and potentially very costly corporate matter. They researched all of the claims, responded, formed proper defenses for the claims from our corporate documentation and guided us as to how to improve our processes and corporate arrangements to help us avoid issues in the future. He saved us many hundreds of thousands and grief taking the matter to a successful conclusion for us. In the 4 years since that matter, we have retained him to resolve 2 other matters of contract dispute and getting due payments from clients that failed to pay upon project completion, again, both in our favor. Long time corporate client here. We get great responsiveness, honesty, good explanations whenever we ask for advice, and successful results.

An Excellent Advocate To Have On Your Side of the Table
“James G. Schwartz and his law firm were recommended to my husband and me to help resolve a family issue involving company stock. When Jim came in he immediately assessed the situation and took all of the pressure off of our family. Jim and his Firm were then able to remove the problem which had caused us so much anxiety. Throughout the entire process we found him to be both extremely knowledgeable and effective in his work. Our stress level decreased markedly knowing he was watching out for our interests. I would highly recommend Jim and the Law Offices of James G. Schwartz PC”

Swift and Effective Resolution! Jim Schwartz took care of our Partnership/Real Estate Issues with awesome care.
We were in a time crises with a real estate partner with whom we were trying to negotiate a buyout. The favorable financing was about to be lost. Jim Schwartz came recommended by a well known attorney and Jim scheduled a meeting immediately. He contacted the opposing attorney, drafted an agreement and saved our loan as well as resolved the issues. He was supportive, direct, and yet caring and helped us keep our sense of direction throughout. I would highly recommend Jim for your legal needs.

Excellent Lawyer
I had been involved in a protracted real estate transaction and we had reached a major stalemate. We were down to the wire and had only two weeks to get the transaction closed. My client was advised by several other local financial and legal professionals to contact James Schwartz. We went from an almost a dead deal to closing within one week thanks to James Schwartz legal expertise. James kept us all informed the whole time and performed above and beyond to get the deal closed on time. I would not hesitate recommending him to any client or friend.

Great Lawyer
Jim and his Firm were retained to help me with a sticky employment matter. Jim was available to meet with me whenever I needed him. In fact, Jim dropped everything he was doing to attend a night meeting that was crucial to my case. A resolution was negotiated with the results I wanted. I was extremely satisfied with the legal services I received and appreciated Jim’s advice and counsel. I would not hesitate to recommend Jim and His Firm for anyone needing legal services.

Cash grab from athletic eligibility
Initlaly told us a cost for heloping get our child's athletic elgibility would be $8,000. He was rarely available, told us he had big CIF cases and won them. Later found out he didn;t have as many as he lead us to beleive. He was very poor at communicating, used only half the facts in our case, very unprofessioanl during the appeal and only made it 1/3 of the way through the appeal process with a $12,000 bill. He hurt us more than helped, an attroney with no CIF experience did a better job for us!
