About Kevin

Learn Kevin’s areas of practice.

Kevin Swenson was raised in Bountiful, Utah, and is a co-founding partner of Swenson & Shelley. After graduating from Bountiful High School, Kevin attended business school at Westminster College. While in college, Kevin owned and ran a sign company and worked as an ambulance driver and firefighter. Kevin loved his work in the emergency medical arena. His career as a personal injury attorney allows Kevin to continue devoting his time to assisting injured people.

Kevin graduated from law school at the University of Utah and worked as a defense attorney for insurance companies. Through that experience, he learned how insurance companies work, how they think, and how they attack a claim. In 2010, Kevin “changed camps” and switched to representing injured individuals in his community rather than the multi-billion dollar insurance companies that fight those claims of those individuals.

He now feels a greater sense of purpose and fulfillment by assisting people injured by the wrongful acts of others. Understanding the reluctance of insurance companies to pay claims and the strategies they use to get out of paying claims, Kevin can now use that first-hand knowledge to fight for injured parties and collect the money rightfully due to them from insurance companies.

Kevin involved himself in thousands of lawsuits for more than 30 years as an attorney, many of which have gone to a jury verdict. Kevin is passionate about what he does, devoting time to helping individuals get the medical care they need, and he enjoys seeing his clients heal and move on from their injuries.

Kevin enjoys the outdoors, family, and travel when he isn't working.

Felt helpless and lost!!!
After my car accident in September 2015 we felt helpless and lost and were unfamiliar with the legal process necessary to get the relief and support we so desperately needed. Kevin and Emily and their entire team helped answer our questions and get me the help I needed. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who's been in an accident.

Made life much easier
After my daughter's accident we felt helpless when trying to get the care she needed. The Hospital and Insurance companies both dragging their feet to help. We contacted Kevin to help us figure out how to get my daughter the help she needed. Emily was worked tirelessly to help get everything rolling. Within days we where able to get the required test ran to find the extent of my daughter's injuries and finally begin the healing process. I am grateful for the professional way they have handled this case. Thank you.

Awesome!!!
My daughter was injured in a car accident in 2015 and we debated retaining an attorney for her. I read the AVVO reviews for Mr. Swenson and immediately called his office to set up a consultation. I was contacted quickly and treated very nicely and professionally by Mr. Swenson and Emily Richins. They have gone way above and beyond our expectations and have worked tirelessly for the last year to get my daughter a fair settlement for her injuries. I've had my calls and emails returned promptly and any questions I had were answered....even the dumb ones!! It was so nice to be able to hand all of this over to Kevin and Emily knowing they are experts in their field working their hardest to get my daughter everything she is entitled to. I cannot say enough good things about Kevin, Emily and Robert J. Debry and Associates. Would I hire them again? YES!! Would I recommend them to others? YES!!! Thanks for everything Kevin and Emily!!!

Great experience
I hired Kevin following an auto accident and very pleased with my decision. I just wish I would have done so earlier in the process. I tried to handle it all on my own for almost one year. Kevin is very kind and knowledgeable. Emily, our paralegal is fabulous. I can't tell you how great she is to work with, she is very attentive, professional and sportive. Together Kevin and Emily have exceeded my expectations. I trust Kevin completely and recommend him to anyone.

Kevin, Emily and staff are absolutely amazing!!
We hired Kevin for an accident a year and a half ago. Kevin, Emily and the whole staff always went above and beyond our expectations. I have and would recommended them to anyone I know who could use their services. Kevin has even helped us and referred us to others for matters that had nothing to do with the accident. He and his staff are truly in this business to help others and genuinely care about their clients.

Helen's Review
I would recommend Kevin Swenson and have hired him. I was in a traffic accident in Nov. 2016. I was a passenger in a car and this accident left me unresponsive at first. I have hired Kevin as I believe he is the best for the case I have at hand. He, Emily, and the staff at Robert J DeVry in St. George have been amazing to work with and I look forward to still working with them.

Kevin Swenson and Emily Ritchkins!
What a team that will be on YOUR side, these two sure know what they are doing. He (Kevin) even met me in my town so I didn't have to travel the hour to his office! Both took exquisite care of me and my car accident case...they got even more than expected! I learned to trust their judgement and realized that they were experts in their Field....if you want honesty and great service...see them! Emily stayed in touch with me during the whole process to keep me informed.

Highly Recommend!
I was in an accident and tried to work with the insurance company without the help of an attorney and after several failed attempts I turned to Kevin and his team for help. I don't know why I waited to hire him! Kevin and Emily took great care of me, once I got Emily everything she needed I didn't have to do anything else besides excepting the settlement offer at the end. Emily kept me posted through out the whole process so I was never left wondering where my case was. It felt great to have them in my corner! I would highly recommend Kevin and his team!

Car accident
I would like to give thanks to Kevin, for all the hard work that he and his staff did. They did a lot for me and my family. He did everything possible that he could to make sure my injury was taken care of. Calling me and checking in on me while in the hospital, just an overall good human being. He worked hard and did everything possible that he could according to the circumstances we where dealt. He fought hard against the insurance people and did what he could. I'm very happy that I'm now healing from injuries from accident, and taking it one day at a time. Thanks Kevin for what you have done. I would recommend him 100 times over.

Kevin was my attorney for my motorcycle accident. It was nice to know that everything was being handled and taken care of. I was able to get all the money that was available to me and my bills were paid. I'm back on a motor cycle again!!!!!

Melissa's review
I hired kevin to represent me in my personal injury case. It was a hard case because I felt that we had to prove all my injuries and my damages. The case went to mediation and we had to fight very hard for the settlement that we got. The office was excellent to work with and they returned my calls promptly.

Nellie's review
I hired kevin to represent me in my case. I think he did a great job I had never worked with an attorney before but it was a good experiences. He was able to settle my case for an amount that allowed me to get my medical bills paid and a large amount to me. I knew it would take a long time but it was worth it.

I hired Kevin Swenson to represent me in my car accident. He fought for me and I was able to get the surgey that I needed to repair my back. I even had money left over. I would recommend him to anyone.

i would recommend Kevin Swenson at Robert J. Debry - 10/10
I was in a motorcycle accident and didn't know what to do so my mom advised me to get an attorney and Kevin was a great choice. He regularly kept me updated and settled my case in a timely matter. The other insurance company was trying to bully me around with the claim process and having a lawyer really eases the stress and anxiety of dealing with an insurance company. i would recommend Kevin Swenson at Robert J. Debry to anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer. 10/10 I feel like this office has totally exceeded my expectations. - Cody

I hired kevin Swenson to be my attorney, he was able to settle my case. It took longer than you realized but litigation takes time. He was a friend to me and gave me some really great advice. It was a reality. I quit smoking and drinking. He really cared about me.

lauren review of kevin
I hired Kevin to be my attorney in my personal injury case. I felt like I didn't have to do anything they kept me informed with what was going on and everything moved along quickly. I did not have to be responsible or overwhelmed with handling the paper work and the insurance companies.
