Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.

I retained Jeff Schwartz of Schwartz & Waible after I was charged with a felony. Jeff was caring, professional, detail-oriented, and thorough in how he handled my case. He has a strong knowledge of criminal law and knows the Larimer County court system and its players well. He was able to negotiate the best possible plea deal for me, and I am grateful for his representation. I highly recommend Schwartz & Waible’s services.
