Justice Scale

we go

all in for you




I’m described a lot of ways. In the courtroom, it’s either pitbull or Wonder Woman.


Either way, protecting and saving people’s lives is what I do through the Swain Law Office.

I get it. I’ve watched the system work against everyday people, such as my father, a war hero, who sustained injury while serving our country in the Vietnam War. My father ended up representing himself to try and secure his disability benefits in a system that performed opposite of the help it promised him.

He won.

His struggle against a seemingly unbeatable opponent taught me that it is possible to defy all odds to achieve the results you believe in.


We bring that same relentless energy to serving clients who turn to this firm when their odds seem impossible.

And we’re pretty darn good
