I am very disappointed with the legal services provided by Ms. McSwain. An attorney friend of mine recommended her and felt she was someone I could trust to provide good legal representation and fair billing but unfortunately for me she was mistaken. Ms. McSwain did everything possible to convince me to prolong my divorce case and subsequently increase her payment. Ms. McSwain charges for every phone call, text, and email regardless of the size or message content.(eg she charged to inform me she would be out of the office for a few days) Although Ms. McSwain illustrated a percentage discount on all invoices, I feel most charges were overstated to compensate for these discounts. I also experienced very untimely billing of invoices with the expectation that these late invoices be paid immediately and in full for the continuation of legal services. Ms. McSwain was very unorganized and requested the same information multiple times charging fees upon every duplicate request. Ms. McSwain only seemed interested in prolonging my case and creating extra work to increase her fees; in the end I came out with a lot of financial debt and grief over the entire experience. Divorce is very stressful and I feel that Ms. McSwain only added to my stress on many levels. I would not recommend this attorney unless you have money and time to waste.
