“Mr Schwartz represented me in domestic violence case. His cross examination of the “victim” show that she was a total liar. The judge dismissed the case against me. David did a fine job for me. I recommend him to anyone”

        – Eric

“I hired Ms. Posnock for 2 cases this year with Hit and run(with 5 other traffic offenses) and Careless driving. All charges were dismissed and I am very happy with the outcome. She is extremely skilled lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone. She is a true expert and I’m thankful for all her support throughout the entire process.”

        – Karson

“David helped me during a very trying time in my life. I found him to be professional, informative and trustworthy. Anyone needing legal help would be well represented by David. David answered all my questions, explained the proceedings and kept me calm. David was truly an advocate for me and my rights.”

        – Client

From our first conversation, it was clear that Leslie knew what she was well-spoken, knowledgeable and professional. She set realistic expectations for my outcome that we were able to exceed. Her attention to detail required the prosecutor to do his job and check all boxes, some I didn’t even know existed. The prosecutor ultimately unable to do his job, I got an acquittal, and have Leslie to thank for it.
