Stephanie Allmon, paralegal at Jones & Swanson
On the evening on Monday 26th August 2019, I was involved in a nasty road accident. An SUV travelling at a high speed in wet conditions jumped a red light and t-boned me on my car’s driver’s front side. If I hadn’t seen the SUV and slammed my brakes, it would have slammed right into my door and I wouldn’t be typing this message now. Even though I was bleeding all over my hand, luckily I wasn’t otherwise badly hurt – or so I thought. I had a nurse friend come pick me, dress up my bleeding, and drop me home. The next morning, on the 27th, my manager insisted that I needed to go to the hospital for a full check-up, and I also needed to speak to a lawyer. He then recommended Jones & Swanson (J&S) to me. I called J&S that same morning, and by 12 noon I was seated in their offices getting advice on how to proceed. That was the day I met Stephanie Allmon, the paralegal who handled my case. Stephanie immediately advised me to schedule a visit to the hospital for a total check-up, including x-rays. The check-up showed that I had major internal bruising, especially on my hip. Clearly, I had more injuries than I originally thought, and by this time the pain and discomfort was becoming intense. Stephanie then scheduled an appointment with a pain doctor, who then scheduled an MRI for me, which revealed a severely contused hip. She also scheduled an appointment with a chiropractor for me, so I could get adjusted. At the same time, she worked tirelessly with the insurance company, which was really tough because the driver of the SUV wasn’t insured. Stephanie kept checking on me via regular phone calls and e-mail updates. About 6 months later, my hip pains came back, and she again rescheduled me to go visit the pain doctor and get further MRIs, which showed some previously undiagnosed injury. Throughout the entire medical journey, I never had to go out of pocket even once! Stephanie finally got a great settlement, which we agreed upon. I am in a much better place right now health-wise. J&S are an amazing company. I have already referred a friend who was also in an accident to Stephanie, and he tells me that she is taking amazing care of him and his case. All I can say is that Stephanie is a Godsend. If you’re ever unfortunate enough to be in a situation where you need a personal injury lawyer, I strongly suggest you use J&S. If you use J&S, please request that Stephanie handles your case. She is that good. Thank you so much Stephanie!

Responsive and Effective
I was recommended by a friend to go to Jones & Swanson to handle my personal injury claim for a hit and run accident that involved a U-Haul truck. Chase's team (Stephanie) was extremely professional and always kept me in the loop of developments with the party at fault. She was diligent to check up on my recovery status. They were able to get compensation where originally it the party at fault denied any claim to compensation. The settlement was satisfactory for the injury and I feel that would recommend Jones & Swanson to handle any personal injury claim without hesitation.

Thanks for a job well done
Unfortunately, I was rear-ended on my evening commute by an impaired driver. My neighbor referred me to Jones & Swanson and this turned out to be a blessing. Stephanie was assigned to my case and did a great job to keep me informed and things on track. She was readily available to discuss on the phone whenever I had some questions and negotiated a great settlement with the insurance company. I would not hesitate to recommend Jones & Swanson if you ever need the assistance of a personal injury lawyer.

A nice christian lawyer
When I had a car accident and didn't know what to do, a lawyer whose name is Matthew Chase Swanson, kindly explained how to think and plan one by one. His smiles and soft words comforted me so much. Office work and procedures in each step, were clean and just. He helped me to get everything done without any difficulties. I hope my son, who is a law student, to be a kind, considerate, and dependable lawyer like him. I think I will definitely visit Matthew the next time if any thing happens. What a nice lawyer! What a dependable lawyer! A lawyer you can count on.

Mr Swanson is great at communicating with his client.
I highly recommend Mr Swanson when looking for a lawyer. I went in not knowing much about the process and whether or not I needed a lawyer. Chase explained everything and made sure I understood what was happening the whole length of my case. I always felt like I could call him or email with questions and would receive an answer within the same afternoon. I hope I’m not in this situation again but If I was I would definitely hire Mr Swanson again.

Realistic and honest!
I went to Swanson based on reviews I read. I was not disappointed. Chase and Stephanie kept me informed about the process and best case scenarios. Going through an accident and subsequent recovery is not easy. The staff at Swanson took my calls and answered our questions without hesitation. I would recommend them to anyone who do not want to play the guessing game as it relates to the ‘what now’ after an accident.

Dog Bite
Chase worked closely with me during the entire case to get me a fair settlement on medical and injury from a dog bite. Chase fought the insurance company on my behalf and included me in the total settlement I was expecting before doing any negations. I am pleased with the outcome and would use this law firm in the future if needed.

Chase Swanson
I used Chase Swanson at Jones and Swanson. I have to tell you that he was helpful, nonjudgmental, professional, accommodating, and totally awesome at his job. He always gave me the time I needed, and I never felt rushed. I felt like I was always his primary concern. His paralegal - Ashley is terrific as well. I would recommend him and his staff in an instant. The staff always made me feel comfortable. Thumbs up for this fabulous law firm.

Coach
I was involved in a hit and run accident in Atlanta, Ga. I'm from out of town. Matthew Swanson and his office was first class in helping me from the beginning dealing with the accident, the insurance company, the hospital bills and paper work. His office made sure I was that I was updated about my accident. I would recommend his office to any one.
