Bradley D. Schwartz was an attorney for thirty five years and an inmate for fifteen months. As an attorney, he practiced criminal law and medical malpractice claims. At the age of sixty two, he was incarcerated for fifteen months in the Maryland state prison system for a nonviolent economic crime.
After his release, he launched Prisonpath in 2012 to help inmate’s families and first time nonviolent defendants face prison. Prison Path provides extensive information about every prison and jail in the United States, posts articles every week about the numerous problems confronting our prison systems and answers questions daily from inmate’s families and individuals facing prison.

“Bradley Schwartz is an amazing storyteller with an amazing and surreal, but, nonetheless, a very true story. Brad took the time to come to New York City from Washington DC, to meet 25 students from Business College in Denmark and to hold a seminar pass about the time he spent in an American prison – as an inmate. His true story has all the ingredients of an average prison-movie, not more, not less. The horrors of prison, the lack of privacy, the rules you have to obey to survive – and how lucky you actually have to be to make it through your sentence. No wonder that Brad – and many others – has lost faith in the American penal system. Thank you for teaching us and for letting us into your life! You are a great man and a great help for many inmates and their families. We wish you all the best in your life! I highly recommend Bradley Schwartz’ seminar to everyone, who is interested in the American judicial and penal system and American social studies.”
Anne Pratt, Ph.D., Clinical and Forensic Psychologist
“Bradley Schwartz is in a better position than most to offer information about the prison experience, and to articulate and explain the important issues facing people who might be incarcerated. His combination of experience – as an attorney and as an inmate – gives him a unique perspective to bring this information to the public. The criminal justice system is in dire need of reform, and Bradley Schwartz’s voice will be important in the national conversation.”
Martine Herzog-Evans, Law Professor at the University of Reims, France
