also known as Craig Swapp

About Me

Personal Injury Attorney Craig Swapp practices law in Utah,
Washington, Idaho and Colorado. He has dedicated his legal efforts to
helping individuals who have been hurt or killed as the result of
someone else’s negligence or wrong doing. He is a zealous advocate for
his clients in their fight against big business and the multi-billion
dollar insurance industry.


Craig is an active member of the Utah, Washington and Idaho
Associations for Justice. He currently sits on the Board of Governors
for the Utah Association for Justice and has been actively involved with
their legislative efforts. Craig is also a long time member of the
American Association for Justice. Craig and his team of lawyers have
been recognized by peer groups and community groups for their effective
advocacy on behalf of their clients.


Craig and his partner Buddy Gregory joined forces in September 2000
and have been going strong ever since. Both Buddy and Craig had
achieved successful practices on their own and believe the combination
of their efforts makes their legal efforts even more effective. Craig
and Buddy have been successful in recruiting an all star team of
experienced personal injury lawyers and other professionals to assist in
the battle for what is right and fair.


Craig was nominated to be the face of Gregory & Swapp PLLC
appearing in the Firm’s “One Call, That’s All” advertising campaign in
Utah, Washington and Idaho. The firm’s advertising message is designed
to help educate and provide an answer to those who have been injured in
their quest to bring normalcy and healing back into their lives. The
firm’s advertising augments the many referrals the firm gets from prior
and existing clients, medical providers, other attorneys and friends of
the firm. Craig has proven over the years that he really cares about
each client and will do whatever he and the firm can do to help.


He graduated from the University Of Utah School Of Accountancy in
1988 with a bachelor’s of science degree in accounting. After spending
a short time in a large Public Accounting firm Craig realized his
talents and passions could be better used in the practice of law helping
level the playing field for those being taken advantage of by big
business or government. Craig graduated from the University Of Utah
College Of Law in 1991 with a Juris Doctorate degree. While at the
University Of Utah College Of Law Craig served as a senior editor for
the Journal of Contemporary Law. Craig also enjoyed and succeeded at
his trial advocacy and moot court competitions.


Craig is married to his college sweetheart Susan and they are the
proud parents of four daughters and one son. Craig is an avid reader
and loves to travel with his family. He is actively involved in his
community sponsoring youth groups and teams and volunteering as a coach
for a variety of youth sports. Craig is also a supporter of Justice
for All, a charitable group designed to provide legal services to those
who can not afford to pay. Craig loves what he does and finds great
satisfaction in helping his clients get back on their feet after
difficult and often tragic events.


Craig welcomes any feedback good or bad regarding the efforts of the
Gregory & Swapp Team and will personally address any issues or
concerns that may come up. He and Buddy want to provide the very best
legal service possible and to turn clients into long term friends of the
