Professionalism and Accessibility

We believe there is a huge difference between being professional and being pompous. Being professional means providing honest, ethical and knowledgeable representation to each and every client. It means working hard to get a positive result for every client.

Being professional means not talking down to people. It means responding promptly to phone calls, e-mails and text messages. It means not hiding in an office when there is courtroom fighting to be done. To us, that is simply being pompous … being rude.

When you choose Oakland County criminal attorney Steven L. Schwartz, you will have a professional on your side. Steven L. Schwartz has an AV Rating* under the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Rating System. He will make himself available to you. You can call him. You can e-mail him. You can even send text messages. He will respond to you.
