His approach to law has a distinct, scientific perspective.


Uniquely qualified to litigate complex and highly technical issues of law, science and medicine

Mr. Schwimer’s hard science background further allows him to craft compelling briefs the courts find convincing, giving him a tactical advantage in complex legal cases.


In 2004, Mr. Schwimer went on to attend the USC Gould School of Law and earned his Juris Doctor degree in 2007. While at USC, he graduated with the distinction of being the recipient of the Deloitte Award for Excellence in the Field of Corporate Taxation – a further testament to Mr. Schwimer’s mathematical background.
