Jill S. Schwartz, Managing Partner, Labor and Employment Attorney

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed and caring people can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
— anthropologist Margaret Mead

 These words have inspired labor and employment attorney Jill Schwartz. As founder and managing partner of Jill S. Schwartz & Associates, P.A., a top-rated labor and employment law firm in the state of Florida, Jill devotes countless hours and resources to community service and philanthropy. 

Jill was instrumental in raising the funds to build Hospice House of Hospice of the Comforter, Central Florida’s first inpatient facility for the care of terminally ill patients. She serves on the Board of Directors of Harbor House, serving the needs of victims of domestic violence, and of The Holocaust Center of Florida. She is a member of the American Heart Association’s “Circle of Red,” and has chaired their annual “Go Red for Women” fundraiser. This year she will chair the United Way Leadership Council luncheon, promoting literacy in Orlando’s underprivileged communities.

For Jill, giving back to the community is a firm-wide effort. “We could not have a thriving law practice and impact the community in a significant way without the commitment and dedication of our invaluable team,” says Jill. Attorneys and staff members have been active in many philanthropic projects for organizations including Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Town USA, Orlando Ballet, Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, and the Legal Aid Association.

In addition to her devotion to community service, Jill has assumed numerous leadership roles in the Central Florida legal community. She has served as President of the Federal Bar Association, Orlando Chapter; President of the National Employment Lawyers Association, Florida; Chair of the Orlando Bar Association, Labor and Employment Section; and Chair of the Judicial Nominating Committee for the Fifth District Court of Appeals.

It is Jill’s passion to better her community. Through her personal efforts and by meaningfully supporting the volunteerism of all around her, she continues to have a lasting impact on the lives of many Central Floridians and on the city she loves.
