Great company!
I had the pleasure of working with Jay and his paralegal, Jeff, for 9 months while they pursued the best possible outcome for me and my case. I was able to settle and was very pleased with what they were able to get for me from the insurance company. They were so kind and helpful through the whole process, and answered every call and text whenever I had any questions. I would recommend them to anyone going through an injury from an accident.

Still working with them, and so far it's been a huge weight off my shoulders!! Accidents really turn your world upside down... I was nervous to start this process but grateful I did.

Incredible team!
The team helped me get reimbursed in an accident that I was involved in, with multiple cars, at no fault of my own. They kept me updated at every step of the way and dealt with multiple insurance companies on my behalf. They saved me so much stress and headaches. I am grateful to have had been represented by an incredible team.

Highly Recommend
One Call That's All is absolutely the truth. My attorney Jay and his assistant Jeff worked really hard to make sure every detail of my case was handled, and kept me informed along the way. They are very patient, kind, and easy to work with. They're hard work and determination resulted in a considerably larger settlement payout than I was expecting. I have and will continue to recommend Craig Swapp and Associates forever. Steve Bailey

TBI case
Jay and Jeff have been amazing during this rough year! Here in Spokane Washington I had gotten hit by a truck as a pedestrian. Gave me a horrible TBI and bad knees. I struggle alot with everything now and due to that Jeff and Jay had gotten all my paperwork/medical/insurance stuff put together and had got the settlement and finished the case. I appreciate all the help they did and how genuine and kind they were. Honest and on top of it. I recommend Jay and Jeff for any TBI case!

my feelings about Attorney Chris Barrus and case manager Heidi Underwood
I followed the recommendation of a friend and a sister to contact Craig Swapp and associates to take on mine and my husband's case which had been really messed up by a previous attorney at another firm. Our new attorney, Chris Barrus and his tireless case manager Heidi Underwood have been a godsend! Heidi has been so on the ball with things, courteous and helpful. She deserves a 21 gun salute of thanks and appreciation. While we aren't through the process yet, I have great faith in her and Chris's performance on our behalf. If you're as lucky as we have been to have them, consider yourself blessed from God!
