Michael Schwartz and Team were a Huge Help
Posted by: Joel, December 5, 2018
Michael Schwartz and his Team (including Amy Radak) were immensely helpful to me in my Ch 7 case. They put my worries at ease and assisted me in navigating the process to discharge my debts. The price was fair and I could not recommend them enough. Mr. Schwartz was kind and understanding, and clearly brought decades of expertise to the table. They were quick to respond to any emails and questions I sent. I am good with bureaucracy but I am glad I did not undertake this process alone. I chose him in part because of the excellent reviews here on Avvo, and I am happy to report that they were accurate. Thank you!

Michael help me through a very difficult time in my life. I felt like I was suffocating in debt. He eased my mind and my life and was sensitive to me. He got me through a stressful situation in a relatively short time. I would highly recommend Michael and his staff to anybody in financial difficulty.
Best Attorney Ever IMO!

Michael took our case and gave us the extra special attention that he promised to all his clients even with our “special situation”. We are very happy with the outcome and would recommend his practice any day.
A truly kind professional who knows what he is doing

I was so worried how my case would be handled by a lawyer. I had a lot of reservations about filing bankruptcy I felt like a loser.
After my meeting with Michael H. Schwartz, my feelings was entirely different. I felt that I was not a loser, but a person who made a lot financial mistakes, and was being given a second chance in life.
Mr. Schwartz was always available to talk to me, always pleasant. His staff was professional and they cared about your case.
I highly recommend Mr. Schwartz. He is one of kind,
Michael Hal Schwartz Is the very Finest Bankruptcy Attorney in the Entire Country, in my opinion and I Very Highly Recommend Him
Posted by: anonymous, December 15, 2012
Michael H. Schwartz was my Bankruptcy Attorney in a Chapter 7 case, which was recently very successfully concluded. Because of Michael H Schwartz’s skill, knowledge, and dedication in his work, I am now completely debt free and all my credit card debts were completely discharged. I was extremely happy with the way in which Mr. Schwartz handled my case with great knowledge and compassion, and I very firmly feel he is a brilliant attorney. I think he did an absolutely amazing job, and cannot imagine anyone more dedicated to his work and client relationships than he was. Mr. Schwartz always puts his clients first, and had always taken great pains to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease. There is no doubt that I would gladly recommend Mr.Schwartz as a Bankruptcy Attorney to anyone who was in my prior straits. Mr. Schwartz has helped make the entire experience painless and seamless, and always took the time to bolster my self confidence. He explained in great detail all the ins and out of the entire procedure as was needed. I must say that Mr. Schwartz most thoroughly prepared me all the way through to the final court session with the Trustee of the Court. As well, he has a terrific sense of humor that always put me at ease and built up my confidence at every point in the entire proceedings. I feel blessed to have had Mr. Schwartz by my side throughout the entire Bankruptcy and felt very secure under his guidance. I also feel that his fees were extremely reasonable considering the amount of time and effort he put into my case. Again, I would easily rate Mr. Schwartz 5 stars and much much more as a Bankruptcy Attorney, and I would very highly recommend him to any individual in need of an absolutely superb Bankruptcy Attorney!

I visited Michael Schwartz’ office when I felt like I had run out of options. He and his team were able to provide a clearly defined plan for bankruptcy protection. He was able to stop the harassing phone calls and letters from creditors. I have started over, and I now possess the knowledge fora financially secured future.
A very good lawyer

A very good lawyer who has a great team. He met with me personally and along with his associates, answered all my questions and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I achieved the result I expected and was overall very happy with his services. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a bankrutcy attorney.
BEST UPFRONT BANKRUPTCY ADVICE OU T THERE!
Posted by: Lloyd, May 22, 2012
After many interviews with other lawyers in the same field, as well as other alternatives to Bankruptcy, I put myself in the hands of Michael’s firm, who went out of there way to help with any and all questions and concerns as my case progressed. Not only was I taken care of during the process, but my exwife recieved a complimentary consultation on a matter that may have affected her during my case, and Michael ‘s knowledge calmed her down right away, (not an easy task by the way….)
I highly recommend the practice, and although I certainly hope to never need their services again, and happy that they are there.

I would recommend him to anyone who needs a bancruptcy attorney or for any other services, as an attorney, he renders.

Best Lawyer Ever!!
Posted by: Alma, a Chapter 7 client, December 22, 2011.
From the beginning, Michael made the experience of filing for bankruptcy accessible and easy to understand. I instantly trusted him and his team, especially Amy who was a tremendous help with all my questions and with taking care of all the paperwork involved. The process was quick and all responsibilities on my end were handled effectively with their help. I recommend Michael without exception.
Michael Schwartz truly cares about his clients!!!
Posted by: Steven, a Chapter 7 client, December 20 , 2011.
Michael Schwartz is a very professional and respectable attorney. He was very detailed in explaining what my options were and clearly outlined the process. I went to 3 other attorneys, who would not help me (probably because they lacked the experience) and Michael took hours of his time to evaluate my case. He walked me through to the very end, and thanks to his extensive knowledge and experience he has helped me rebuild my life. Please use Mr. Schwartz with confidence and know that he stands by his word.
I highly recommend Michael Schwartz
Working with Michael was a true pleasure – he handled our bankruptcy case with professionalism and truly possess the most current and up to date information regarding bankruptcy laws. If it was not for Michael we could have lost our home.
Michael Schwartz is a superb lawyer!!!

Working with Michael Schwartz and his staff was truly a pleasure. Forced into bankruptcy after a brutal (and costly) divorce earlier this year was one of the most difficult situations I have ever faced. Mr. Schwartz helped me to understand all of my options so that I could make the best possible decisions. He meticulously outlined the pros and cons of every issue throughout the bankruptcy. His professional staff was very helpful along the way. I have now been able to move on with my life thanks in large part to Mr. Schwartz and his dedicated team! I am extremely appreciative for all they have done to help me.

Michael, thank you so much for the professional services you provided!
You and your staff was truly a pleasure to work with. I’m sure you know the stress and strain that some have when it comes to making this decision and you reassured me that it’s something that sometimes unfortunately happens and was nothing to feel bad about. That was truly a relief and exactly what I needed to hear. I had consulted with two attorneys before being referred to you by a close friend and they made me feel worse than I was already feeling. I am forever grateful to have been blessed with your services and will gratefully refer you to anyone I know in need of assistance.
Once again, thank you for the Professional Services you provided!

Michael helped us through our toughest times and we appreciated his expertise, honesty and assistance.
Michael Hal Schwartz Bankruptcy Attorney
Posted by: Jamie R., a Chapter 7 client, August 16, 2011.
Michael has been very helpful as well as comforting in getting me through the misery of having to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. He is more than just an excellent Attorney I feel we have developed a true relationship as a friend. He not only walked me through the paperwork filing but prepared me for the type of questions that were asked at the meeting with the court appointed representative; I couldn’t feel more comfortable knowing that I had Michael on my side throughout the whole process. I can’t say enough positive things about Michael except you won’t find a better Attorney to get you through a nerve racking experience.

Nothing less than professionalism is what I experienced with Michael Schwartz and his office staff. My questions and concerns were answered in a timely manner. Would I use him for legal services again??? I still have his number in my blackberry.
Posted by: a Business client, June 8, 2011.
Michael was understanding, very knowledgeable & thorough. His being so thorough enabled us to close our case in one short Hearing. He walked us through unfamiliar territory with patience. He & his Staff were always available to answer a question or give some guidance. Overall, for his legal expertise and excellence, I would recommend Michael Schwartz to my children, my family or anyone who wanted a job well done.
Assuring and hopeful experience
Posted by: a Chapter 7 client, April 13, 2011.
I found Attorney Schwartz just in time. After being laid off since 2007 not only were my finances in vertigo, emotionally I was defeated. My first consultation was with the attorney, which I found impressive because it showed he took my case seriously. During the entire process any questions I had were answered within a reasonable time by either Attorney Schwartz or his paralegal Amy. The mandatory courses were very educational and beneficial. His supporting staff and Amy, the paralegal, were very efficient and knowledgeable as well. My anxiety was dispelled by the time of the filing. I could not have asked for a better legal team, they transformed a very difficult personal matter into an experience of assurance and hope.
Posted by: Linda, a Chapter 7 client, March 25, 2011.
My husband and I brought Mr. Schwartz a very difficult and complex legal bankruptcy case. We knew it would take an exceptional legal team to manage the complicated aspects of our financial situation and work with the trustee in our behalf. We are most pleased to write that Mr. Schwarz handled our case with the utmost professionalism and competence and the outcome he achieved was substantially better than we had even hoped for.
Michael was the best
Posted by: a Chapter 7 client, March 8, 2011.
Michael was an outstanding attorney. He handled my bankruptcy. The person in front of me at the hearing had a bad attorney and a lot of problems. I was very worried. Michael was prepared and all the paperwork was in order. I had absolutely no problems. I will recommend him to anyone I know that has financial problems!

Atty Schwartz, was knowledgeable about my particular situation. He made very constructive recommendations. A very important fact is that his staff is well trained, courteous and available. No question was considered “irrelevant” or a nuisance. This was a “first experience with Bankruptcy”, and I did feel a degree of “financial failure”. However, both Atty Schwartz and, especially Amy, his Para-Legal, were especially supportive.
Posted by: Robin, a Chapter 7 client, February 2, 2010.
The first meeting with Mr. Schwartz I was impressed by his knowledge and experience. I was nervous, of course, to file but Mr. Schwartz assured me everything would turn out fine and it did. He filed my case quickly and I received my discharge in less than 6 weeks. It was refreshing to find an honest, intelligent and professional attorney who delivered what he promised. His office is staffed by courteous, caring and empathetic people. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, go with the best. I would highly recommend Mr. Schwartz’s services.
Light in The Dark
Posted by: a Chapter 7 client, January 31, 2011.
Michael H Schwartz and his associates from our very first meeting were Professional, direct, informed and so very patient as to our needs and anxiety. Once we became clients Mr. Schwartz and his legal team guided us thru the legal shoals of our case. Enough cannot be said about the constant interplay of communication among everyone in his office, affording us as clients the security of knowing if there was a question one could not answer at the moment …”a we’ll call you back soon with the answer”… was given us… and the call was returned with answer as promised. His is a legal office that we would recommend confidently to anyone in need of his Bankruptcy expertise. At the end of our first meeting, we told Mr. Schwartz “we are standing in front of a very dark forest and you are holding the candle to light our way”.. . he led beautifully.
Review of Services
Posted by: Erica, a Bankruptcy client, December 31, 2010.
I had never done bankruptcy before (I was a legal secretary for over 30 years but never in this field) and was very nervous and scared. Mr. Schwartz and his staff took away all my fears and helped me through this proceeding. After the first meeting, I signed on to have him represent me. All questions regarding procedures and legalities were answered promptly and explained in “layman’s” terms so I could understand what was going on. Also, having health issues it was imperative that I go through this procedure so I could concentrate on my health and not the debts that I incurred after becoming ill, and the stress that it was causing.
I’ve used Michael Schwartz and don’t regret it.
Posted by: a Chapter 7 client, March 16, 2010.
He’s great. For the time I work with me, I found him to be very trustworthy and knowledgeable. I’m glad I found him as a lawyer. My case was well prepared and everything was done in a timely and effective manner.

I was a recent client of Michael’s. He and his staff at White Plains were very diligent and tenacious throughout the entire process. He said that he hasn’t lost a case yet and it’s quite true, He fought for me every step of the way. I have already recommended him to friends considering bankruptcy.

Michael H. Schwartz Review
Posted by: a Chapter 13 client, March 3, 2009.
What I liked about Mr. Schwartz is that he does not like to waste time and gets down to the point. Meetings are short but to the point. Most communication with Mr. Schwartz and his associates were done very discreetly, most of the time by email.
I highly recommend Mr. Schwartz.
