    • I do not recommend Ruth Swenson.
    • I hired Ruth 1-3 years ago.
    • Ruth handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Represented herself as an "advocate" for "victims" yet victimized me further. Extremely poor follow up, lack of progression/timely filings caused my case to be DISMISSED for lack of progress! It took nearly 4 months to receive a refund of fees paid (and only after advising her i was filing a complaint with the Bar Assoc.) which I was billed for services PRIOR to signing any agreement for representation. I am filing a formal complaint with A/CAP against this attorney as she violated many areas of procedural/professional conduct. This attorney will appeal to your emotions and vulnerabilities but forget you exist once she has collected her money. BE WARNED!!

  2. Great Attorney, Call her!

    • I recommend Ruth Swenson.
    • I hired Ruth more than 3 years ago.
    • Ruth handled my Child Custody matter.

    Ruth has been our attorney for years. Always there and ready to help with our custody and support issues when needed...Ruth accomplished more for my husband than we thought could happen. Everything she said could be accomplished was and more....She put extra effort to accompolish what needed to be done in a timely fashion. I have referred a few people to her as well. Thanks Ruth and your staff for all your dedicated help throughout the years.

    Worst divorce lawyer on the planet. Please do not go to her. You will regret it. Poor response times, bad explanations, excuses for everything, and just bad all around. The work at her office is sloppy and slow. My divorce was drawn out WAY too long. She was awful and very unapologetic.
