I endorse this lawyer. Scott M. Swafford contacted me to discuss the vacation of a confessed judgment entered against one of his clients. He was aware that my article on confessed judgments is about to published in the Maryland Bar Journal. I had the opportunity to review his Motion to Vacate and/or Modify the Confessed Judgment. Not only was it the best drafted Motion to Vacate that I had ever read, it contained a detailed analysis of why the "forum selection" clause in the parties' contract did not confer personal jurisdiction.
