Professional Legal Background

After leaving to become in-house counsel for an insurance company, he formed Mordini & Schwartz n/k/a Mordini Schwartz Vine.

Personal Life Experience
In 2004 Mr. Schwartz was hospitalized with meningitis that led to sepsis and caused him to lose his arms and legs. The doctors at the emergency room missed many warning signs and failed to realize that he had meningitis. The hospital’s delay in diagnosing meningitis caused septic shock that ultimately led to the amputations of his limbs.
With the use of prosthetics Mr. Schwartz re-entered the practice of law and began directing his efforts toward cases involving personal injury, medical negligence and misdiagnosis. By combining his legal skills with his hospital and limb loss experiences, Mr. Schwartz is able to assist people in need of a lawyer who understands the unique challenges that face severely injured clients.
In 2012 Mr. Schwartz started L. Bradley Law, LLC with a focus on medical malpractice, personal injury, patient advocacy and insurance litigation. He immediately began volunteering his legal services to Chicagoans who were in need of quality legal representation but were not able to afford a high-priced lawyer. In 2014 Mr. Schwartz was honored by the Chicago Legal Clinic, Inc. with the James D. Jacobson Memorial Award for his outstanding efforts in making the legal system accessible to those in need.
