What Our Clients Say About Us

Attorneys Schwartz and Attorney Niedermeyer are both excellent. They guided me through difficult and complicated legal issues with knowledge and compassion. The entire staff is friendly, helpful, and responsive.

- Christopher C.

This firm is very professional and gets things done. I had another firm before I decided to hire them and boy was it the best decision I made. They are not only professional but they really understand the divorce process. Ben is a great attorney who really knows how to negotiate the right deal for you. His years of experience shows every time he goes against opposing counsel. Also he is very easy to talk to and he kept me calm throughout the whole process, which is not easy because of my temperament. LOL Also his staff is so great on whatever you need. They are there for you the whole time, very professional and extremely nice. With all that said, I would highly recommend this firm.

When my marriage was obviously at an end, I knew I would need a good attorney to help guide me through the divorce process. I wanted to make sure that my son and I were well represented. I sat down with Attorney Schwarz to ask some general questions about how the process works and what kinds of things needed to be considered for our case. His answers were well thought out in regards to my situation and not the one-size-fits-most approach that some legal firms start with in divorce cases. He had my best interest and the welfare of my son at heart. Throughout my case, he explained the legal aspects to me and gave me straightforward answers to my questions about some of the issues I faced so that I could make educated choices and seek fair solutions. His staff is very knowledgeable and were easy to communicate with. I feel that we have been well represented by an attorney who has a very strong personal as well as professional code of ethics. I would highly recommend the services of this law firm to anyone who is going through the difficult reality of divorce.

Seven and a half years ago, I started going through what would be the worst nightmare I ever experienced. Divorce was such a scary and unknown territory that it never crossed my mind. As it became a reality, I was extremely thankful someone recommended Benedict Schwarz, II. Attorney Schwarz is such an experienced, knowledgeable, confident and passionate attorney. He always put my children’s and my best interests first. I felt as though he walked me through the process every step of the way and spoke a language I could understand. After a year and a half into the divorce, I was feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, and wanted to just give up. Ben was always there to encourage me, build up my confidence and he consistently reassured me that I was doing the best thing for my children and to keep going. The hours Attorney Schwarz and his staff spent working on my divorce, knowing that I had little money to give each month, just goes to show what a wonderful man/attorney he is. His staff always did more than what was expected because they share the same passion for their jobs and clients. Seven and a half years later, with a Guardian ad Litem now involved, I am back in court and would never think of having anyone other than Ben represent me. I praise his work and his passion and would recommend his firm to anyone that is in need of a family law attorney. He is truly unique and stands out from the rest. Once you meet with Attorney Schwarz, you will not regret your choice and will gain a solid understanding as to why I cannot say enough good things about him. Again, he is walking me through another equally tough time in my life and I am so grateful that he is on my side supporting me.

Being inexperienced in the divorce process, the office taught me anything I asked or needed to know. I felt the communication was good throughout the process and honestly felt Ben and his staff truly had a concern to do their best to keep costs down and before certain phases I was asked if steps were approved by me to pursue where an unnecessary cost could be a concern. With my divorce having a child involved I felt the knowledge of custodial laws were explained and that being a male and going for custody I felt the office was very truthful in my possibility of getting the outcome I was pursuing. When I was searching for an attorney I found Ben Schwartz in a search and feel I got a great attorney and would recommend him to anyone in need of his services. One of the things that stands out the most through my whole experience was the way that Ben conducted himself and communicated to me in our meeting. He talked to me in a language I understood, he talked with me as if we were on the same level and he was not above me, felt he was truthful even if it was something I didn't wanna hear and never promised me anything or told me anything to lead me in a direction for his benefit. I say that because I believed that if anyone hired a lawyer they would look out for your best interest being the client and when I saw that our opposing attorney was looking out for his financial interest rather than what was best for my ex wife I realized there are attorneys that put their gains in front of their clients' best interest and again made me much more appreciative that I made the right choice in choosing Ben Schwartz for my case. 100% satisfied with my whole experience!

The Law Office of Ben Schwarz, II has been a life saver for me. During the hardest time in my life, Ben and everyone in the practice was on my side. They fought for me, did more than I could ever imagine from an attorney. Everyone there is professional, kind, knowledgeable and very talented at what they do. I would recommend The Law Offices of Benedict Schwarz, II to anyone and everyone who needs a great attorney!

- Evelyn K.


I have been using the legal services of Benedict Schwarz for a very complicated legal matter regarding a situation with a former associate. Attorney Schwarz is an outstanding attorney and has addressed every need expeditiously that has arisen during the course of my issues. He has more experience than any lawyer I have ever known. I have recommended his services to friends, co-workers and even family members. Everyone who has used him is also very happy with his representation.

- Lisa M. P.


My husband and I have three children of our own and the idea of having a fourth never crossed our minds until we were introduced to a sweet five year old little girl with special needs. With her mother in prison, the father unknown and the grandmother as the interim caretaker, we needed an attorney with experience and dedication to help us jump through the many hoops ahead of us. Attorney Schwarz understood our situation and guided us through the complicated process of gaining custody and ultimately the adoption of this brave little girl. Working with a Guardian ad Litem, a Psychologist, numerous doctors and dealing with Public Defenders Office was a territory very foreign to us. Benedict Schwarz was there to support us during this emotional and lengthy process.
