About Me

 


Attorney M. Chase Swanson’s career as a Georgia injury attorney has been devoted to first-rate representation of each of his injured clients. Chase has been a member of the Cobb County community his entire life. He is originally from Marietta and studied Economics in college at Mercer University.  His area of study was Economics and he graduated cum laude in 2007. After gaining his undergraduate degree, Chase earned his law degree from Mercer’s Walter F. George School of Law.  While in law school, he was active in numerous on-campus organizations.  Chase worked as a law clerk at Andrew W. Jones, P.C. during both summers while in law school and then joined the firm full time in August of 2010.


 


Chase is actively involved in both Georgia and Cobb County bar associations.  He currently serves as President of the Cobb Younger Lawyers Division and Secretary of the Cobb Trial Lawyers Association.  Chase is a member of the Georgia Bar Association, Cobb County Bar Association, Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Bar Association.  From 2011 until 2012, he served as Treasurer of the Cobb County Younger Lawyers Division and was President-elect for that same Division in 2012. Since 2011, Chase has served on the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Membership Committee.  He is also the New Lawyers Division Co-Chair and a Younger Lawyers Division Litigation Committee member.


 


Chase currently lives in Kennesaw with his wife, Whitney, and their two dogs. He enjoys playing tennis, flag football, basketball, and softball. Chase also stays active by camping, kayaking, and sightseeing. Since moving back to the area, Chase has become involved in multiple community outreach programs through Marietta First Baptist Church where he is a member.
