In 2016 I had been sued in court for custody of my daughter. Not being prepared with an informative lawyer I went to my court date and left with only one day a week with my daughter. I was devastated, being in a low place in life, fighting my way uphill from a nasty break up and recovering from an addiction. I knew that I did not want to live with the court order that was just granted only seeing my daughter only once a week. During this time I continued to rebuild my life which included getting my own apartment with a separate bedroom for my daughter, and researching the internet for an attorney I could actually afford. I went to a few interviews but when I went to the interview with Lee Schwartz I knew that he was the best option for me. From the beginning he told me honestly what to expect from best outcome to worst outcome and he worked with me from the beginning to the end. He would check in on me throughout the process asking me if I had any updates and never forgetting to ask me how I was doing and how my daughter was doing every time. He gave me direction on what my next move was in the road to the hearing day. The first time we went to court I wanted to aim to get 50/50 custody and I would not take no for an answer. Lee knew how I felt about it and we went for it. The outcome was everything I expected. I was at about 40% physical custody right from my one day a week custody arrangement. This was in Jan 2017. I was happy but I knew I wasn’t finished. I filed for custody again about 6 months later and it took about a year to actually get to the hearing. For this trial, I had lots and lots of written evidence that included a 20 page diary and 500 pages of text messages. I felt bad that he had to go through all of that but I knew it was for our case. Lee went through all of my pages of drama and he narrowed it down to the most important factors, summarized it for me, and even wrote for me my own testimonial to study from to get me ready for the hearing. Believe me I was ready! We went in that day shooting for primary custody. I knew Lee was great in court but in this trial he was amazing. Everything went better than planned. It seemed so easy for Lee to organize and have all information ready in his head with reference to evidence in text and emails on the desk, to come out in defense for me all at the right times! I was seriously impressed. When we left that hearing, I was granted with Sole Legal and Primary Physical custody of my daughter! So I went from minimal custody to basically full custody of my daughter in 2 and a half years. Lee Schwartz is really an amazing lawyer and his actions really impressed me. Another plus is that he offered to stay in the waiting area during the break if I was uncomfortable to be alone in the same room as my daughter’s father. I would say if you happen to need a lawyer and you want to be sure that he will go the extra mile for you, call Lee Schwartz. He is my one and only family law attorney.
We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts ♥️. We are so happy that we found an amazing lawyer like you. Now we all are so happy and at peace at home.🏡 thank you again.
I came across this law firm from a Google search where you can pay/bundle payment based on your legal situation. At the time, with the Holidays just being over, this law firm was what I needed. Lee Schwartz was my lawyer. After our initial meeting, I felt less stress, confident, and satisfied that Mr. Schwartz would do everything he could to rectify my case where an agreement or an arrangement could be made for each party involved. He was very responsive to my calls and emails. His partner Ms. Jordan, though I has little interaction with her, was responsive and good as well. The office staff was professional as well. Though I did not have to go to court because it was settled, I would certainly use and recommend this law firm again. Thank you Mr. Schwartz.
Lee is a trusted, smart, and thoughtful legal counselor. I am incredibly grateful for his advice and guidance. – Joshua
Mr. Schwartz is a person who is committed to a fair process and to the best possible outcome for his clients. There is absolutely no substitute for experience, and he has it. I had an effortless mediation experience with him and was more than pleased with my results. He has a unique way – combining calm, sensitivity and smarts. I highly recommend Mr. Schwartz and have done so, to several friends. – Hope

Lee A. Schwartz is terrific lawyer. Personal, caring yet also focused on the issue at hand, dealing with matters both large and small in the most professional manner. With his intelligence and legal knowledge, he is a rare lawyer whom one wants to have on their side, reacting to the most difficult issue with the focus necessary for legal protection. Should anyone have a legal concern or need for advice, I would highly recommend Lee A. Schwartz. – Mila

Lee has handled several legal matters for me over the past three decades. He is always well prepared, thoughtful, and well informed about the applicable law. His advice is impeccably precise and strategic. Above all, his ethics are among the highest of anyone I’ve met – attorney or otherwise – and he is a profoundly good, active listener who does not come to a discussion with preconceived notions of where the conversation ought to go. I’ve met few other attorneys in my professional or personal lives who so capably can transform a problem into a solution. I plan to turn to him in the future when confronted with legal problems, and I heartily recommend him to others as well. He’s really that good! – Paul
I worked with Lee as a paralegal for several years and would recommend him and his services to anyone in need of them. He is thoughtful, caring, and very straight forward. When you are in need of a family law attorney, it is typically a time of great stress. Lee works hard to remove that stress factor and provide representation that will always be in your best interest, providing sound, reliable advice and service. – Chuck.
Lee Schwartz is a rare lawyer, and person – a man of deep integrity and great subtlety. The judges in Philadelphia’s Family Court know this and it benefits his clients. With calming finesse, Lee can talk clients through the hardest parts of the dissolution of a marriage, and make sure they come out in the best possible shape on the other end. In fact, I like Lee so much as a person that I would want to know him even if he hadn’t been my lawyer. – Helen
