The best!
The best!

Steve knew exactly how to handle my first offense OWI case in Royal Oak, helping me get the best outcome possible and no jail time. He's very approachable, a pleasure to speak with, and puts things very clearly. He encouraged me to call anytime, and answered when I did. He pointed me to all the right people for evaluations/therapy and is very connected throughout metro-Detroit. While I've not hired many lawyers before, it's hard to imagine finding a better one!

"GREAT ATTORNEY, would recommend Steve to anyone!! One of the only lawyers you will ever meet who truly cares about his clients, I could reach him anytime I wanted just by calling his personal cell phone. I am gratefull that I had Steve as my criminal defense attorney! Mike Y.

I cannot thank Steve enough for the outstanding job

I cannot thank Steve enough for the outstanding job he did defending me in court recently for a probation violation. I went through the initial case a few years ago with a different attorney. I never knew what was going on and my attorney had no time to explain anything to me. The outlook was bleak. This time with Steve representing me, it was very different. He put me at ease every step of the way. The unbelievable deal I received was better than I had expected and I know I owe it all to Steve. I would definitely recommend Steve!

I had Steve represent me in a crimanal case. He got my delivery of drugs case reduced to a misdermeaner. He was a bulldog in court. He gave me his carphone number and was always available. I recently read were he got a murderer like 5 years or something. Little known but a great plus in my life. Derek

Probation Troubles Gone Away
Probation Troubles Gone Away

Wow Steven saved me. I was on probation when the court said i was not sending enough money each month. And had me in front of a judge in days. I was nerves this is not going to be good. Steve talk me down and put a plan together that night. We meet at court in the morning. The deal he got me was less then i was sending each month. A friend recommended Steve. And now I tell my friends. Hes the really deal. Mike

Steve has been my lawyer for over ten years. I have recommended him to many of my friends, who have also used him. I speak for everybody when I say he is the best lawyer in the tri-county area. I wish I could say more, but words cannot express the gratitude I owe Steve. He saved my life.
Best in Michigan!

Steven handled my OWI case like it was his only case! He is very honest, listens to you and is always available via phone if you need him! If it wasn't for Stevens quick thinking and knowledge of the court system, I would be in jail. I have referred Steven to multiple friends who have also hired Steven. A+ in all areas!

Steven got my drug conviction down to disorderly conduct

I spent time in prison for prior drug convictions i felt hopeless after receiving another. When i found out my license would get suspended for a possession charge my world would've fallen apart, until Steven fought for me every step of the way. He got my possession charge knock down to disorderly conduct so that I would not loss my license.No jail time!! Best lawyer I ever had!!!! 🙂

Steven Schwartz review

Mr. Schwartz did a fantastic job. I had numerous cases that I needed representation on. Steven got me back over $500 from courts to pay towards getting my license back. He always kept in touch and is a GREAT attorney. If you're looking for representation...look no further. Steven Schwartz WILL get the job done
exceptional lawyer

Mr. Schwartz represented me on two separate occassiions. In one case he was able to get a felony down to a misdemeanor and a OWI to a careless driving ticket. Mr Schwartz conducted himself in a very professional manner. He comes highly recommended by me.

     I was on probation for four years and ten months. Judgment day was fast approaching. My options were going to be: start over with probation, go to jail or close the case. I contacted Steve - he said he could help. And help he did. He put together a plan and got me off probation, and out of the system. Case closed. I can't thank Steve enough!
