Practice areas

I have been representing family law clients in southern California for 15 years.  I have successfully litigated many child custody,divorce, child support, spousal support, and guardianship issues in court.  I have had many succesful outcomes in court.  Many of my clients have had their child support  lowered or I have gotten them big financial rewards.  In divorce cases my clients have  always received huge financial rewards and walked away with there equal share of the community property they were entitled.  For grandparents I have successfully fought and won guardianship cases. Grandparents have been awarded custody of their grandchildren as a result.

Very Sharp Guy
David is a super knowledgable guy and he really made me feel like comfortable on the phone - not rushed - he's very easy to talk to.

Highly recommend, aggressive and will fight for you
I hired David Schwarz for an outstanding warrant and he helped me clear it. Now i am able to find myself a job. He appeared in court for me and was helpful. He answered all my questions and was attentive. I highly recommend this lawyer.

great lawyer! will do anything to help you.
I had a case that really messed up my plans I had. I have never had any run ins with the law so I was blind in a big world. I contacted David to help me filter through all the muck. he made it clear as water and piloted my case to a dismissal and put my life back on track. he comes highly recommended from myself.
