A perfect fit
After learning that Ms. Swenson was licensed in both Indiana and Florida we knew she would be the perfect fit for our needs since we were relocating to Florida soon. Shortly after contacting the office my call was returned promptly by Ms. Swenson. We discussed our needs re: preparation of an updated will and other concerns re: our current guardianship of our adult daughter. She was extremely knowledgeable and provided instructions in preparation for our office appointment. She was thorough and we appreciated the time she spent to ensure we understood the legal requirements in Florida that we would encounter. I would not hesitate to recommend Swenson & Associates.

The Best!!
I highly recommend hiring Angela Swenson. She fought hard for me and is a bulldog in the courtroom! Angie got me through a lot of tough times that I thought I would have never made it through. She answered all my questions in a timely matter and is worth every penny!

Great Lawyer!
I had a challenging case and a lot of anxiety regarding it. Meeting with Angie and discussing the case made a big difference. Her knowledge of family law and the court system has been incredibly valuable to me and having Angie in the courtroom representing me made a huge impact on my case. I recommend her if you need a great lawyer supporting you.

Best Lawyer
I have hired Angie twice now and would hire her anytime I need legal representation for my child custody case. The first time she did everything she could and we won without even having to go infront of the judge. The 2nd time was an emergency hearing and she was on top of it. We went to court and she was well prepared as always to wipe the floor with him and she did and I now have full legal and physical custody of my son. She is no-nonsense and really does everything She can for you and your child. She is an answer to a very long time prayer and I am forever grateful for her. Thanks Angie!

Amazing Person&Amazing Attorney
She goes out of her way and tries her best sometimes more than her best to try to win your case, if you don't when she never gives up. She will keep fighting, she will keep finding L things against the other person I love that about her. Also she will set up a payment plan, unlike other lawyers who expects you to pay them right away, you could set up payment plans and that helps so much. I will keep using her actually she's going to be my main lawyer. If I need her in a case or at all again I have her information. I will be more than happy to pass it around to anybody that might need her.

| Consulted Attorney
Very Knowledgeable & Honest
I was about to hire a lawyer for my child support/custody case; during our consultation he assured me I would get everything I wanted out of this case and that he couldn't see any reason it would not go my way. I thought this was too good to be true since I am close to a few people who have been in this sort of situation so I wanted to get a second opinion. After reading some reviews I decided to go with Angela because I like what others said about her. I am so thankful I did! She is very knowledgeable, gave me good advice and her honest opinion. After speaking with her I knew that it would've been a big mistake to hire that other lawyer not only because he gave me false info and hope but more importantly because, unlike him, she showed interest, concern and actually cared about how the different outcomes could affect me. I am so thankful for Angela. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer who will have your best interests at heart.

An excellent lawyer A+
I remember the first time that I met Angela and she told me that she would not represent someone that beat their spouse or their kids. I was very impressed her determination to Uphold what is right by the law. She is incredibly passionate about what she does and she does it very well. Not only did she have an excellent knowledge of the law, but the first time that I went to court with her she was an absolute knockout in the court room. I just recently won custody of my son which I really wanted but did not even think that it was possible. Cannot even express the gratitude that I have for the tenacity and hard work of Angela. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
