Seth Schwartz, Esq.


"Practicing special education law is a very personal decision for me. My sister has autism and I've experienced the direct impact of the disability on her education and our family. Growing up I watched my parents struggle when making the choices that affected my sister's emotional, social, and academic growth. When I think about my job as an attorney and legal advocate I always keep that perspective in the forefront."
