This attorney and her entire office were very caring and helpful. I would recommend this firm to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

I hired Pamela Edwards-Swift to handle our Divorce case. She charged her retainer fee and also placed a lien on my home. Her office staff began to complete documents but would postpone court dates and continuously ask for extensions, or refile documents. Several Paralegals shuffled my case around without any follow through. I have an entire file box filled with meaningless paperwork. She represented me for four years before I fired her. After four years, I am STILL NOT Divorced. I still owe thousands in legal fees. She almost worked her way up to the total amount of her lien on our home before I fired her. If I could actually prove that she extended my case for 4 yrs. in order to get the total amount of the lien money, I would file a formal complaint against her with the BAR Association.

The office loves to overcharge for not completing work. The office did not know about my case at all. I would not recommend this attorney unless you want to spend ALL your retainer and then some.

I was recommended to Pam Swift’s firm by a family member, when I made the difficult decision to get divorced. Initially I thought the process would be routine, as divorce is now so common. How wrong I was. Before I knew it, my spouse was attempting to kick me out of my house and gain sole-custody of our 4-year old son.
With Pam Swift’s guidance, we were able to fairly and efficiently conclude a very difficult and highly complex divorce; involving child custody, visitation, property sale, property division, alimony and child support. Pam’s entire staff was dependable, supportive, and understood the emotional rollercoaster throughout the difficult process.
Pam’s office worked extremely efficiently, and considerately worked to preserve capital and minimize the overall cost of my divorce, allowing me the financial means to “start over”. I truly believe that without Pam Swift’s representation, I would have paid much more in the long run.
I highly recommend Pam Swift’s expert services. Her experience proved to be invaluable in protecting my parental rights. As a result, I now enjoy sole-custody of my son, and my support and alimony payments are fair.

I would and have referred friends to Pamela Swift's office. Pamela is very knowledgeable and works very hard for clients! She has a wonderful staff that is very helpful and knowledgeable. Pamela knows the court system very well... when you are with her at court she is in complete control and always puts you mind at ease because she knows the system very well. One huge thing that I loved she was not intimidated by any other attorney at all !!!! I feel very fortunate to have had PamelaKristi as my attorney. Any person male or female that chooses Pamela as their lawyer will be very happy with her professional and service. She is a fighter and will do anything possible to win your case.
