Izaak Schwaiger is an advocate and champion for the rights of regular people. A decorated veteran of the United States Marine Corps, a former Sonoma County prosecutor, and a respected presence in the courtroom, Mr. Schwaiger has devoted his practice to defending the criminally accused and upholding the civil rights of those who have been wronged by the police. Following ten years of service to his country in the Marine Corps, Izaak enrolled in law school at the University of Wyoming, where he did not graduate with honors, but was named "most likely to become a rockstar."
Called the "go-to lawyer on police brutality cases" by the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Izaak's successes in cases others have called "hopeless" are as numerous as they are unequalled. Izaak has successfully defended hundreds of clients in cases ranging from simple misdemeanors to first-degree murder, and his accomplishments in police brutality cases have made headlines in The Detroit Free Press, The San Jose Mercury News, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Guardian, Fox News, and CBS. Izaak holds the record for the largest settlement of a non-death police violence case in Northern California history.
Izaak is admitted to practice in all California State and Federal courts.
