Top notch legal representation
I was involved in an extremely contentious business lawsuit. Steve was referred to me by my personal attorney due to a conflict of interest. I was under an extreme time constraint to obtain representation. Steve stepped up with little time or preparation and definitely lived up to the reputation he was reported to have. In the end we prevailed and he made the opposing attorney look like a mere amateur. I could not give him a higher recommendation to anyone seeking an experienced litigation attorney!

When You Want the Very Best!
Mr. Steven H Schwartz was referred to us as someone that could help us with the following case. My wife was involved in an accident that happened January 21, 2019 in which she almost lost her life-she was hit by a drunk driver exceeding eighty miles an hour in the rear end of the car she was driving. Without going into the details of every aspect of this, I would say, we needed the best of legal help we could find, and that's what happened. We contacted Mr. Schwartz and hired him to represent us in any legal matter that would come about as a result of this accident. I am writing this review as of December 27, 2019 - Mr. Schwartz has to this point in time shown us that he is positive, thorough, compassionate, knowledgeable, trustworthy, diligent, intelligent, confident, resourceful, punctual, does what he says he will do, explores every avenue, flexible, highly ethical, and is dedicated to provide the best legal service to our case. Although, this case has not come to an end after eleven months, the end is near, and we can say what a privilege it has been to have had Mr. Schwartz work and represent us. We could not have asked for more. Thanks!

Steve saved the day
We asked for his help when we realized we were in a difficult situation that seemed like no end in sight and after changing from another attorney to Steve, the case was finally resolved with a positive outcome. I have highly recommended him to other people as he is effective and has high ethical standards.

Excellent experience!
Stephen represented me in a personal injury case regarding my child. He was compassionate, knowledgeable and amazing to work with. His research of the case was very thorough, giving me, the client, the confidence to continue forward. I felt that he was invested in my case and was extremely trustworthy. I would definitely recommend Stephen to my peers.

Mr. Schwartz is an excellent lawyer.
I have known Stephen Schwartz for over nine years. During that time, I have had cases against Mr. Schwartz as opposing counsel and have referred cases to Mr. Schwartz that I couldn't handle personally. Mr. Schwartz has always done a wonderful job for his clients and I will continue to refer clients to him as he takes the necessary time and effort to represent them zealously.

Steve is the best
We needed help in Sedona with our property and battling the People's Republic of Yavapai County and Steve was excellent. Couldn't ask for a more competent and professional. I've had many experiences over the years and Steve is in the top 1%.
