I would and will have Andrew as my advocate any time. He handled my difficult case with honesty, professionalism and integrity.
Andrew did EVERYTHING he could to keep my case from going to trial. When it became unavoidable, he was outstanding in front of the judge. Straight foreword, and with poise. In the end, Andy's hard work was instrumental in me receiving custody of my kids for near fifty percent of the time.
Andrew included me in the process from beginning to end. I made all the decisions with him guiding me, and answering every question I had. I truly felt as if I was a part of my case, not just a guy left twisting in the wind, whilst the lawyers made all the decisions. Andrew was always available, and treated me more than just a client, and that made me feel comfortable and valued.
This process was stressful and painful. It was made easier by Andrew's legal ability and the fact that he actually cared about my girls and I.
I whole heartedly recommend Andrew as a legal representative.

Andrew was not trustworthy. He discussed with me an understanding of my case, but demonstrated a lack thereof. His charges did not match the work he presented during the collaborative law process.
It was not only a waste of my time, but my money as well. I fired Andrew after a year and moved on to an efficient and honest attorney.

I have worked with multiple representatives over the years. Mr. Schwarz is the best I have ever seen.
His preparation and, use of case law and intellect really shined in the court room. I admire Mr. Schwarz and am thankful that lawyers like him exist.

I have known Andrew for several years, and believe his approach to the practice of law to be exceptional. He believes in the autonomy of his clients; educating them on their choices and working with them to achieve their legal goals. He is intelligent, dedicated and determined. I whole heartedly endorse Mr. Schwarz’s work.
