More than a Client Number
I wanted to say that words cannot express how much I appreciate both of you, not only for expertly handling my case but also for the way you treated me throughout that entire rather extremely difficult time. Most of last year was an incredibly draining experience for me, both emotionally and financially, but the patience and kindness you both extended to me did more than you know to keep my spirits up and keep me moving forward with everything that needed to be done. It was a true blessing that you made me feel like I mattered, that you didn't view me as Client #3042 and that you were invested in the outcome of my case. Both of you know how much I love and completely adore my daughter. Losing custody of her would have been completely devastating beyond belief and I honestly don't know how I would have gotten through the next 11 years only seeing my angel two weekends a month and a few weeks in the summer. The two of you helped me avoid that nightmare and I will be forever grateful to you for that. It really meant the world to me that you both worked so hard on my behalf and that you both actually CARED.....cared about me, cared about my situation and ultimately cared about my daughter.

Knowledgeable, Assertive and Professional
Ms Swofford demonstrates a complete understanding of issues. She is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. I was impressed with her analysis and effectiveness in being objective while dealing with extremely emotional matters. She listens and understands your needs and helps you identify what is important and subject to legal proceedings. The results of her work exceeded my expectations.
