This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Nick Swartzendruber is an outstanding attorney.
My company has hired Nick twice and I view each of those actions as unqualified successes. Both cases involved disputes over natural gas royalties in Wyoming. Nick is sharp and diligent and was devoted to me and my side of the dispute. I could not have been better represented. I would recommend Nick in a heartbeat to anyone including my closest friends. God forbid I would need representation in the future, but if I did Nick would be the first person I would call. Even if the need for an attorney were outside his field of expertise, I would still talk to Nick before anyone else as I value his opinions and thoughts so greatly.
