-Joseph Rivkin

"I have worked with many professionals over the last 25 years, primarily in the medical field, but I have never worked with anyone as knowledgeable, prepared, confident, respected, and professional as Bob Schwartz. In my opinion, Mr. Schwartz elevates the legal profession. Many times I have referred Bob to not only my friends but acquaintances. Bob Schwartz is a brilliant attorney who I have entrusted with my future and he has never let me down."

-Annie Gillette

"Bob is an outstanding advocate. He is always prepared. He always has a detailed plan for proceeding in meetings in and out of court. He is very knowledgeable of the law. It is a pleasure to watch how he can think on his feet almost to the point of manipulating opposing counsel. One of the greatest compliments that I could pass on is from a friend of mine. Her ex- husband retained Bob for their divorce. She said, "You know Bob is one of the best; he is the toughest bulldog in town". I highly recommend Bob as an outstanding attorney for anyone who has a lot at stake in a divorce proceeding. "
