Joel D. Schwartz


Lawyers recommend Joel Schwartz to their clients because they can rely upon him to give their clients a strategy with the best chance of delivering a superior result. They know he will provide the close, personal attention that clients facing white collar criminal, civil enforcement and other investigations expect and need. Moreover, they are aware of Joel’s comprehensive case preparation, and his smart, tireless, effective advocacy—which once prompted a judge in a sidebar to admonish: “Mr. Schwartz, you simply cannot go to the mat for every one of your clients.”

A former federal prosecutor and public defender, Joel has tried hundreds of cases to verdict. He uses that experience to secure positive outcomes for individuals, entities and foreign governments in matters involving allegations of fraud (e.g., bank and mortgage fraud), corruption, smuggling, ethics violations, Food Drug & Cosmetics Act violations, as well as health care fraud, Stark Act, HIPAA, and UK Bribery Act matters. Joel’s work for one Fortune 1000 client led the in-house counsel to remark, “He is a smart and kind person and I have been delighted and impressed with the work he has done for [our company]. Really – delighted, not a word I use often when I talk about legal work. He is that good.”
