For 8 years, Attorney Don Schweitzer wasn’t known as a family attorney. No—he was known as one of the most effective deputy district attorneys in Orange County, with a rock-solid 95% conviction rate in 70+ trials. While there, he was also a part of the Family Support unit, as well as numerous criminal prosecution units involving complex, difficult issues. His knowledge of criminal law was founded on a 10-year career as a police officer, serving as a member of S.W.A.T. and as a homicide detective.
However, in the early 2000s, Don decided that he wanted to serve the people of Southern California in a different way. He left behind his success as a prosecutor and opened a private practice. Together with his wife, Maria Schweitzer, he opened a family law practice in the heart of historic Pasadena. In 2003, the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer was founded on the same principles that led to Don’s success as a prosecutor—exceptional trial skill, vast knowledge of case law and the legal code, and an unwavering commitment to the best possible outcome.
