First time I met with Mr. Swanson, I wanted to appeal a judgement in my child support case. He could have taken my money at that time and got me nothing. He gave me free advice and sent me on my way. Once I was ready half a year later to revisit my case, I contacted his office because of the initial meeting was very honest. I hired him not for the appeal, but to file a change of circumstance instead. He did a great job and him and his staff got me exactly what I asked for. One more thing that was a nice touch working with Mr. Swanson was receiving explicit documentation of exactly what my retainer was used for and how much was used for each item that was worked on. I've never gotten anything like this from any other family law attorneys I've had in the past.
