Law Office Of David Swanson

If you are ever in a jam, call Mr. Swanson. The man is kind, professional, responsive and he really knows and understands the law and legal system. I am glad I found Mr. Swanson, I had met with almost a dozen attorneys and he made me feel the most comfortable in terms of dealing with someone, credibility and know how. Initially what drew me to his office was his many awards and rating on Super Lawyers and his excellent reviews on Avvo. He took care of my case after another attorney had abandoned my case in court and left me with no representation, I did not want to make a mistake and not research who I hired next and I’m very glad I hired David. The first lawyer I hired wanted me to take 6 months in jail, a felony and 2 years of formal probation, David on the other hand got me no jail time and 1 year informal no felony! David always answered all my questions, discussed his strategy with me and all elements of my case, and most importantly he made me feel like a respected human being and the last thing you want to do is deal with anyone who cannot do that. I highly recommend Mr. Swanson to anyone looking for a professional, able and willing criminal law attorney. He provided me with a free consultation also and I highered the man right on the spot!
No one ever wants to have to hire a criminal defense attorney. I have had to twice in my life for two unrelated members of my extended family. The first was over 12 years ago. Had I not come across Mr. Dave Swanson, the results could have been devastating. He was able to show the prosecutor that we were not going to plea, that we were not going to back down, and that the charge was totally misrepresented. The charge was dismissed thanks to Mr. Swanson and his expertise in navigating the system.
The second time hiring Mr. Swanson was to represent a member of the family against a possible felony conviction that literally could have ruined someone’s life. This was a crime that the person was being charged with BUT DID NOT COMMIT. He hired investigators, interviewed people, compared statements, dissected the event. He was there to defend the rights of the accused. That is what a good criminal defense lawyer should do. The process was long and drawn out, over a year and a half, however, not once did I lose faith and I knew that the representation was the best. This charge was dismissed after the second day of trial, thanks to Mr. Swanson.
Mr. Swanson is an expert in the field of criminal defense. He knows his stuff. He knows the players: judges, prosecutors, other big-league plaintiff firms. Don’t think that that isn’t important. When you know the players you also know their points of views, their prejudices, their pet-peeves…thus, you know how to handle them. Mr. Swanson is a highly-skilled attorney and ALWAYS represents his clients with diligence and respect, with hard-work and a sound defense. He is trial-savvy, which many attorneys are not. He knows what is at stake and how to handle it.
Dave Swanson was referred to us by a friend who is a family law attorney in Newport Beach. We interviewed him and knew right away he was our guy. We relied on his knowledge of the law and years of experience negotiating in the Orange County courts. He acted with honesty and integrity throughout the case and got us the best outcome we could have expected.
I started my federal employment with ICE a component of DHS in 2005; and I was wrongfully terminated in 2006 because of discrimination and retaliation. I won the trial in EEOC court in 2008 against ICE for discrimination and wrongful termination. I was reinstated back to my job in late 2008. From late 2014 through 2017, ICE launched an unjust, discriminatory, selective, retaliatory, and malicious prosecution and adverse employment action against me. This was triggered by my former dishonest and corrupt supervisor after my whistleblowing about his illegal misconduct to both Office of Professional Responsibility of ICE and Office of Inspector General of DHS in June/July 2013. In retaliation for my civil actions, in December 2014 my employer ICE convinced a prosecutor in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) to file a felony charge against me after United States Attorney’s Office declined their request for prosecution. This was an unprecedented and unparalleled situation and the only case in history wherein there was a California state prosecution commenced due to a purported federal employment matter, and after the U.S Attorney rejected it!

After my first defense attorney did nothing, I then retained a CENTURY CITY Lawyer with a self-promotion profile website on the internet, which was a HUGE MISTAKE. He filed many motions, including motions to compel discovery in the Court of Appeal and the California State Supreme Court. Unfortunately, they ALL were unsuccessful and very costly with no benefit. He could never convince the prosecutor(s) of the validity of my defense. We had numerous hearings, and he could never convince the court of anything, and particularly the preliminary hearing judge. In in my opinion, he became completely defeated and telling me that, as a former prosecutor himself, my case was very difficult for us to win, but would be easy for the prosecution to prove. That’s when I decided I needed a real lawyer.

This time, rather than falling for exaggerated claims by lawyers on the internet, I came to Attorney David Swanson through a credible referral. After Attorney David Swanson took over the case, he worked tirelessly to conduct a thorough review and analysis of all the available evidence. He took the exact same evidence as my CENTURY CITY LAWYER and completely turned the case around. He and I worked as a team, which is his philosophy. He accepted and appreciated my input and analysis of the prosecution’s video evidence. That important evidence showed that my employer had fabricated the allegations against me. Attorney David Swanson also figured out there was exculpatory information in a separate report prepared by another government agency that we were able to obtain separately. As a result of Attorney David Swanson’s efforts, he convinced the prosecutor to request some additional evidence which was exculpatory and proved our position. Upon receiving this discovery and discussing it with Attorney David Swanson, the prosecutor agreed to completely DISMISS THE CASE. I believe OCDA realized that my employer DHS ICE was using them as their legal weapon to destroy me through particularly despicable racial profiling. The prosecution immediately filed a motion to dismiss, which was granted by the Court. In granting the motion, the judge who was very familiar with the case having presided over it for more than a year, expressed amazement Attorney David Swanson was able to get the case dismissed after witnessing the failures of my prior attorneys. This complete dismissal gives me the path for seeking justice and a remedy for the malicious prosecution. Through my experience with Attorney David Swanson, he has proved to be an extremely effective defense attorney with high competence with a brilliant legal mind, good moral character and loyalty to his clients. I highly recommend Attorney David Swanson to people who need legal help, particularly for those who are falsely accused and maliciously prosecuted.
Mr. Swanson was referred to me by a friend of mine and now having experienced his services myself I wanted to share my experience. He was able to resolve my case by having the charges dropped and saved me from serious repercussions. I am grateful for his passionate and professional services, he is a superman in mine and my family's eyes.
