Shannon,Micheal and Catherine all worked very hard to keep me filled in during the process.Any questions or concerns were answered thruout the process in a very timely way and they did a great job in representing me.If ever in need of assistance in the future I would hire this firm immediately..Shannon,Micheal and Catherine are all great to work with

After trying to handle this myself and studying Family code, in mediation I felt railroaded and alone. My case involved a restraining order, in which
Has ripped my son and I from each others lives.
Almost a decade ago I retained Catherine Shwartz for a criminal matter with awesome results.
It was a no brainer to seek her help.
She and her staff not only did everything, to quickly prepare for my hearing, but Mr Razzo was brilliant
In resolving every issue between both sides
Brittany was awesome in all she did in preparing
All paperwork with precision.
I can't say enough to describe my gratefulness
To the law office of Catherine Schwartz.
It really was never about me...it has always been about justice for my 9.5 year old hero....
Today my son received justice...
And we are now on the road to recovery....
Once I realized I needed help with my family law issues I found the law office of Catherine Schwartz
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I’ve worked with Ms. Schwartz at the opposite end of counsel table for nearly six years . . . she’s a great attorney. Ms. Schwartz’s legal knowledge, modesty, and charm, coupled with her power of persuasion afford her the ability to connect with judges and juries alike. I have personally seen Ms. Schwartz win cases that others thought were unwinnable; I’ve heard jurors speak about her no-nonsense approach to the law and proving the elements in favor of her case; and I’ve talked with judges who gave glowing reviews of her presentation of evidence and closing arguments. If ever I need the assistance of a criminal defense attorney, I would call Ms. Schwartz first without a doubt.

I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy inside and outside of court. In all instances I have been impressed by her knowledge, professionalism, and expertise. She is a skilled litigator and astute advocate. She is extremely diligent, hard-working and committed; capable of tackling any issue and opposing counsel. In addition, she is a kind, warmhearted individual who truly cares about her clients and is willing to go the extra mile for them. Cathy’s staff is also deserving of praise. They are talented and professional, each with significant experience and wholly devoted to their clients and work. Cathy and her entire staff are an impressive group that any client would be fortunate to have on their side.
