Being investigated or charged in a crime can be one the most confusing, stressful, frightening and embarrassing experiences that a person will ever go through; even if the accusations are embellished or even completely false. Many felony convictions carry very real consequences, including being separated from loved ones as a result of a jail or prison sentence.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our son was in need of representation, and we considered doing things on our own; but since we were unfamiliar with the law and procedures involved to resolve the issue, we contacted Schwartz and Waible. It was the best decision we could have made. The charges our son faced were unwarranted, and since the attorney succeeded in persuading the opposition to fairly evaluate the situation, we were able to sleep at night; and ultimately, the charges were dismissed. I give my highest recommendation for the law firm. We couldn’t be more pleased with their services and the outcome as a result.

I would refer Schwartz & Waible as attorneys to anyone that is in need. They take the time to make sure that you know what the process of the courts are and are always willing to answer any question no matter how big or small it may be. They are very kind and understanding. Any time I needed to check in to see where our case was going, I always got a returned call back in a timely manner. They are some of the good guys to have in your corner. Thanks Schwartz & Waible for holding my hand through everything we went through the summer of 2010.
