Review Ruth Swenson
  • Worst lawyer ever

    I hired Ruth to help with my custody case. Worst idea ever, first of all I had to keep on her for everything I felt like I worked in her office. I felt like I was doing everything on my own. I would send her important info for my case to be used as proof and she would wait until the last minuet to tell me she did not get the email by this point it was too late to use as we had court the next day. She lied on my behalf in court and caused me to loose custody of my son and then blamed me for it. She never gave me a client lawyer agreement either. After the worst was done I couldn't get ahold of her as she avoided my calls. She did nothing for my case but make it a nightmare. I do not recommend this Ruth at all. She did not take my case serious and had an excuse for everything not only to me but the judge in court. She did not do anything the judge asked her to do for my case either. She would keep me on the phone for an hour every time we spoke just to ask me a few questions about my case then proceed to rant about other random things that had nothing to do with my case or law even for that matter like people she used to know or about how she's all jacked up on morphine all day everyday or the size cloths she wears or her first husband ect....

    Represented herself as an "advocate" for "victims" yet victimized me further. Extremely poor follow up, lack of progression/timely filings caused my case to be DISMISSED for lack of progress! It took nearly 4 months to receive a refund of fees paid (and only after advising her i was filing a complaint with the Bar Assoc.) which I was billed for services PRIOR to signing any agreement for representation. I am filing a formal complaint with A/CAP against this attorney as she violated many areas of procedural/professional conduct. This attorney will appeal to your emotions and vulnerabilities but forget you exist once she has collected her money. BE WARNED!!

  • Great Attorney, Call her!

    Ruth has been our attorney for years. Always there and ready to help with our custody and support issues when needed...Ruth accomplished more for my husband than we thought could happen. Everything she said could be accomplished was and more....She put extra effort to accompolish what needed to be done in a timely fashion. I have referred a few people to her as well. Thanks Ruth and your staff for all your dedicated help throughout the years.

    Worst divorce lawyer on the planet. Please do not go to her. You will regret it. Poor response times, bad explanations, excuses for everything, and just bad all around. The work at her office is sloppy and slow. My divorce was drawn out WAY too long. She was awful and very unapologetic.
