Hager & Schwartz, P.A. Founding Partner Brett M. Schwartz, Esq. has been named to the 2017 Florida Super Lawyers® list, a prestigious achievement earned by lawyers who have exemplified the highest standards of professional excellence and given to just 5% of all active attorneys in the state! Attorney Schwartz has been included in the list of Florida Super Lawyers each year since 2014.
Brett’s fourth consecutive selection to Super Lawyers Magazine’s list of top attorneys is a significant accomplishment in the legal profession. This is due to the patented Super Lawyers selection process, which values objectivity and uses meticulous evaluations to construct its annual list of attorneys who demonstrate exceptional ability, respect, and client satisfaction in their particular area of law.
Because Brett was again selected to the annual list of Super Lawyers, he was able to pass this selection process with flying colors. This includes the initial peer nomination phase and independent research that evaluates candidates on a dozen indicators of success, such as their case results, community and professional engagement, scholarly writings or lectures, certifications and special licenses, background and work experience, and more. Attorneys are then further vetted by a peer-review panel comprised of distinguished lawyers who also practice in the same area of law. Final selections are made according to point totals awarded during the research and peer-review phases, and no more than 5% of all currently licensed attorneys in the state of Florida make the final list.
Selection to the Super Lawyers list is a defining achievement in an attorney’s career, and it serves as an objective measurement of their proven abilities. As such, local consumers who need qualified attorneys to guide them through their legal journeys can rely on Super Lawyers Magazine as a trusted resource during the attorney selection process. By choosing a recognized Super Lawyer, you choose a recognized legal mind with the tools and resources to produce the positive results you need.
And producing positive results is something Attorney Schwartz has been committed to for nearly 20 years of his legal career. A former prosecutor with the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office, Brett refined his criminal and trial skills by handling thousands of cases involving all types of criminal charges. This insight and experience proved invaluable as he transitioned into criminal defense more than a decade ago, and enables him to leverage his understanding of the “other side” when representing the accused and defending their rights.
Over the years, Brett’s experience and passion for the law have made him an effective and successful advocate for our clients, including individuals facing charges ranging from DUIs, domestic violence, and drug crimes to the most serious felony and federal offenses. Like our entire legal team, Brett is also dedicated to providing the communication and accessibility clients nee during these difficult times. Brett is licensed to practice in all Florida state courts and the U.S District Court, Southern and Middle Districts of Florida.
