    I have worked with Attorney Swenson in a supervisory capacity on a number of foreclosure and bankruptcy matters. His legal writing skills are top-notch, and he is quick to comprehend complex legal issues that will stump even the most seasoned lawyers. His attention to detail is second to none, and his commitment to his clients is absolutely without question. I feel extremely confident in endorsing his work.
