At our law firm, you find a compassionate lawyer with more than 25 years of experience and a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Because we typically represent those with unequal power in their relationships, we understand the importance of listening to our clients' entire stories and offering options and guidance to most effectively resolve their individual cases.
Many of our clients come to attorney Ruth Swenson through referrals from other attorneys, social workers, psychologists, court systems, and police officers called to domestic disputes. She is often the final stop for her clients, after meeting with other family law attorneys. This is because relatively few other firms in the area have the experience, confidence and strength to handle your complex divorce cases. Our firm has built its reputation in Maricopa County on helping clients through contentious custody battles and representing clients against abusive partners.
In addition to her solo practice, Ruth is a trained mediator for private mediations and pro-tem judge for settlement conferences held through the Maricopa County Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program, so she knows how best to assist you in negotiations to reach compromises that work with your life and your family's needs. Still she knows that mediation, collaborative divorce and fair negotiation are not possible for every family or family law issue, so she is ready to go to court to argue on your behalf.
Any family law case is an extremely personal, deep-rooted matter. Ruth is sensitive to that and helps clients reach resolutions they can live with, and resolutions they would not reach without competent legal representation in court.
