Mr. Swor has always gone above and beyond all that I ever asked of him. As a client of his for the past 10 + years Mr. Swor has represented in me in the courts and has received a victorious outcome each and every time. I am beyond satisfied with his representation and would never even consider hiring another attorney but WIlliam W. Swor. Thank you so much Mr. Swor with out you I wouldn't be here today.

I have known Mr.Swor for more than 20 years and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney. I have used him on several occasions and have referred many friends & family to him. Every single referral has reported an A+ rating back to me. He is powerful, assertive, trustworthy and reliable. He is prompt in returning my calls and responding to emails. This lawyer establishes trust and confidence immediately. He has gone above and beyond his professional obligations to win each and every case he has handled for me. I would proudly recommend Mr.Swor to anyone.

I endorse this lawyer. I have been sharing office space with Mr. Swor for the past few years. He is an excellent attorney. I have gone to him for questions and advise many times, and he has always been more than willing to help. I have always found his input to be very valuable.
