Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer 
201 S. Lake Avenue #700 | 626.683.8113
Have you ever stopped to consider what you would do if you were suddenly faced with the prospect of getting arrested and being asked by the police to speak with them?  Most law abiding clients from the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer never consider such circumstances since they do not foresee the possibility of ever having problems with the law.  Unfortunately, life is not always predictable, and some of us may find ourselves in a compromising position when the police attempt to speak with you.  Read more.

Pasadena Solar Initiative
Learn About Rebate Amounts and Incentives
As part of the City of Pasadena's Green City Action Plan and the State of California's Million Solar Roofs Initiative, the Pasadena Solar Initiative (PSI) is PWP's commitment to helping its customers install a total of 14,000 kilowatts of solar power by the year 2017.  With that goal in mind, PWP is not only offering solar rebates to all its customers, but also reimburse permit fees paid to the Department of Planning & Development associated with residential installations.  The PSI helps with the new federal incentives signed into law on Oct. 3, 2008, making the transition to solar even more affordable.
