I had a possible felony charge and he fought for me. He knew the laws and how to deal with the charges. It was very comforting to know that someone knew the laws and court systems so that I could just relax and not worry. I would recommend him to anyone. His price for me was $1000 cheaper that other lawyers I called and well worth it for the case. The case was dismissed and I am very proud of David for his work and thankful. Any negative reviews on the web are probably not true or accurate. I again highly recommend him to everyone out there needing help. Thank you David.

David E Swanson is the most effective lawyer I can refer in the southern California region. He is honest, hard-working and is understanding of every situation of the legal process. He diligently worked on my case and will continue to be my lawyer for the rest of his time in this profession.

I was referreed to David Swanson about a year ago through a friend who is an Attorney I have used in a previous civil matter. I met with David and was immediately put at ease with regard to what I could expect and his specific strategy for keeping me out of jail. Through various tactics and legal manuverings, David got 2 out of 3 charges dropped entirely and got me the minium on the other. Instead of ending up in jail for 18 months as the DA initially wanted, I ended up with informal probation. I have had occasion to retain attorneys in the past for personal or civil matters but this was my first go round on a criminal case. David did an amazing job. Returns calls same day, always honest and fair, fee structure that is very reasonable and damn good at his job. I hope I never need him again but if I do I would not hesitate.

I have to say Mr. Swanson was really nice working with. He tells you clear cut solutions with nothing but Honesty and truth. How Mr. Swanson pulled off my case to avoid going to state prison is something I am so grateful for. But the fact of the matter is after I completed probation we went back to court to reduce all multiple felony's to misdemeanor charges. In the end instead of serving 8 Years in Prison as a Felon I did 12 months in county with NO More Felony's which that is what shocked me. I want to recommend working with Dave Swanson to anybody looking to get clear cut answers and not some sugar coated nonsense. I went through 4 different attorneys when i was fighting my case from my first public defender to 3 private attorneys and the best was my last the 4th was Dave Swanson.
