  • Jenni Fallin Swan

    I had the pleasure of learning the practice of law from Evan. I clerked for him starting the summer following my first year of law school and continuing until I passed the Bar. He took me under his wing and trained me how to be a zealous and ethical family law attorney. I was an associate with Evan's firm until I moved to Georgia. I consider myself fortunate to have had such a strong mentor (who I still call on occasion). I wholeheartedly endorse Evan.
