Ms. Svetlana Schreiber was born in Romania. She came to the US when she was 12 years old and spent the next decade in New Jersey where she obtained her BA in comparative literature from Douglas College, New Brunswick, NJ in 1973 (where she was president of her class for two years).
She was admitted to a PhD program at Rutgers University which she commenced in 1973, but then marriage caused her to move to Ohio where she completed a MA degree in the same subject at Kent State University, where among other things, she taught a course in Romanian.
She attended John Marshall Law School at Cleveland State University and received a JDL in 1981. She has been in private practice since that time, specializing in domestic relations, personal injury, worker compensation and social security cases. The firm also handles Constitutional work, specifically First Amendament litigation, discrimination, police and government misconduct and major criminal cases.
Since 1990, Ms. Schreiber has become the primary attorney for the extensive Romanian community, being one of the few lawyers in the country to speak Romanian fluently. As a result of her involvement with the Romanian community she expanded her practice to include immigration law.
She is a member of AILA (Association of Immigration Lawyers), of its Ohio Chapter, of the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers, the Cuyahoga County Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association where she is also admitted to practice.
An article in the New York Times describing the plight of Romanian stowaways who were incarcerated in Elizabeth New Jersey, drew her attention and caused her to organize a multi state effort to bring legal help to these asylum seekers. She was fortunate to elicit the help of Bishop Nathaniel of the Romanian Orthodox Church and of Armand Scala of the Romanian American organization known as CORA and throughout 1985 -1986, she devoted much of her time, pro bono, to successfully litigate on behalf of these young men and women. She subsequently became a member of CORA (Congress of Romanian Americans). She is currently the acting Chairperson of the Cleveland Chapter of the Romanian American Chamber of Commerce.
She is married and resides in Cleveland Hts., Ohio and has two grown sons both living in New York City. Since 1986 Ms. Schreiber was heavily involved with the ClevelandPublic Theatre where she sat on the Board of Directors for fourteen years. The recent addition of grandson Tobias has enriched her life immeasurably.
