I hired The Law Offices of Saylin & Swisher, 625 The City Drive South, Suite 260, Orange CA 92868 to represent me when my ex-wife filed an appeal to overturn a judgment about our former family residence. Brian Saylin and Lindsay Swisher not only failed to represent me in my best interest (the trial court decision was reversed in part and remanded to the trial court for further proceedings) but at the end of the trial, they decided to charge me additional $15,000 on top of the $15,000 I had already paid them. After trying to negotiate with them the terms of their alleged time and charges spent on my case (they produced a 30-page document and wanted to charge me $30,000 for it) I had to bring Mr. Sayilin and Ms. Swisher to arbitration with the Orange County Bar Association. At the end of the arbitration hearing, the Orange County Bar Association concluded that The Law Offices of Saylin & Swisher not only did not have the right to charge me additional $15,000 but they had to refund to me about $4,000 of the $15,000 I had already paid them. These facts should make you think twice before you decide to hire The Law Offices of Saylin & Swisher.

Brian is a good lawyer, but watch out...he likes to talk and your bill will reflect that! Other than that, possibly the most honest lawyer I have met, and never plays games.
