What our clients say…

On behalf of my entire family, I am sending this short note as a small token of our appreciation for your help in our recent litigation. First, we are forever indebted for your firm’s decision to assist us in pursuing this case. We are extremely grateful that you saw this as a just cause and were willing to invest so much time, energy and resources toward a just conclusion to the case.

Equally important, we would like to express our deep gratitude to Attorney … Swartz for the outstanding, professional work he did on our behalf. We can’t say enough about Jim’s preparation, dedication and presentation. You should all be proud of Jim, not only as an outstanding attorney and a sincere advocate, but as a wonderful human being who not only served as our attorney, but as a valuable advisor, and indeed, a friend.

Without your firm’s commitment and … expertise, we would never have been in a position to even pursue—never mind win—this case. We take comfort in what Jim correctly notes: That if another child’s pain or even death is prevented by this action then it was well worth the investment.

Again, on behalf of the family, thank you all so very much.
