I was accused of sexually molesting a minor in my own family home!
As soon as I learned about the charges, I obtained Chris to represent me. The case took 2yrs & from the start I had so many factors stacked against me. English is not my first language, I had only been in the states less than a year and other than my son, his wife and my grandchildren, I was practically alone and knew no one.
I remember when I first went into the law office; everyone was kind and professional and even though the charges were unjust and heinous, I never felt like I had to prove my innocence.
From day one, Chris kept me well informed of every move, motion and paper he filed. At my request he allowed my son and daughter-in-law to be involved so I could and would always understand what was happening every step of the way.
It wasn't always easy for me to understand and trust what Chris was saying to me throughout my case, I constantly questioned his decisions; but even so he always took the time to explain and made sure that I truly heard and understood what was being said and why. It was the most important thing Chris did for me, he built trust.
Besides WINNING my case against the State, the most important thing Chris gave me was his word and belief.
He believed in me, as much as I believed in myself. He trusted my words, when I told him that I didn't do it, and I trusted him when he gave me his word that he would do everything in his power to make sure I wasn't prosecuted for a crime I didn't commit.
On the last day of my trial, after the jury voted unanimously that I was innocent, we were able to do an interview with the jurors; basically we were able to ask them questions about how they came to their decision and talk some about the case. 3 of the jurors came to Chris and I and said to us the following statement, "we believed you were innocent for many reasons, but the number 1 reason we believed you were innocent was because we could tell that your lawyer truly believed in you!" I looked at Chris and he was brought to tears by their words. He stood up immediately and said, "YES!!! I do believe him and in him!!"
I don't think I'll ever be able to thank Chris enough for his job well done.
If you need a defense attorney hire Chris Swaby! If you know you're innocent, hire Chris Swaby!
If you want someone who cares about you not your money; hire Chris Swaby!
Thank you Chris, you are truly one in a million!
Mr Swaby took my case out of town and without much information. He was thorough and professional, and did not judge me for my indiscretions of the past. I appreciated his demeanor and his knowledge of the system and the people in it. My case was dismissed because he cared and knew what to do. I highly recommend him to all who need a good attorney who will work hard for them.
Uopn my case being closed, this is the "Thank you" email i sent to Chris and his staff. It sums up him and the firms operation.
I want to thank you for everything you and your firm did for me. This was a difficult time for me. It’s the type of situation where you want to avoid it, and hope it all goes away. I quickly learned it doesn’t, and I'm so happy I chose you as my counsel.
The best decision I made through all of this was to retain legal counsel. I know you had many more pressing cases during mine, but I thank you for always taking the appropriate amount of time to help me. Obviously I went into this process with zero knowledge of the legal system, and I couldn't be more thankful I had you there to walk me through it.
I can promise you the sentiments I'm sharing with you are not just mine, but they represent the feelings of all of my family and friends. Being away from home through all of this made everything harder, and my parents were contacting me every day. My mother is probably the most grateful. You and your firm made her feel like someone was looking out for me, and wouldn’t let anything happen to me. She put great faith in you and your experience.
I would also like to thank Danica. I can still remember how embarrassed and ashamed I felt walking into the office for the first time. All of your staff, especially Danica, handle themselves with professionalism and courtesy, and I never had that feeling again.
Also, although I only met him once, I was still nice to meet Brad, and get to speak with him in regards to my case.
Again, thank you for everything!! Please share my email with your staff, as they should be applauded for their efforts daily.
Chris has represented my fiancé At least three different times. I only met hint through two instances and the amount of compassion he has towards his clients seems unmatched by other attorneys I have used in the past. He shoots straight from the hip and will represent you both in and out of court.
