As 2014 comes to a close and a new and exciting year begins, we are pleased
to announce that
Attorney M. Chase Swanson has been named a partner at the firm as of January 1, 2015. Chase began
working for the firm in the summer of 2007 and became a full-time Associate
in 2010 upon graduation from Mercer University's Walter F. George
School of Law. He practices in all of the firm's personal injury practice
areas and has obtained substantial results for countless clients in automobile,
animal attack, and trip/slip and fall injury cases.
Chase is an extremely active member of the Cobb County legal community.
He currently serves as the Treasurer of the Cobb County Trial Lawyers
Association and is the immediate-past President of the Cobb County Younger
Lawyers Division. Chase has also served as Secretary of the Cobb County
Trial Lawyers Association, Treasurer of the Cobb County Younger Lawyers
Division, and Co-Chair of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association New Lawyers Division.
In addition to these leadership positions, Chase serves on multiple committees
throughout the Cobb County community. He has chaired the Cobb Bar Association's
Annual Sleighbells on the Square 5K for the past two years and has assisted
in coordinating the Cobb Bar's Law Day Classic golf tournament, both
of which raise money for the Children's Emergency Fund. Chase is also
an active deacon at Marietta First Baptist Church where he currently serves
Chairman of the Church's Financial Oversight Committee.
2014 was an outstanding year for Chase, as he was awarded the prestigious
President's Award by the Cobb County Bar Association for outstanding
dedication, service, and hard work, as well as the Ross Adams Younger
Lawyer Award. This award recognizes an attorney "who has made a significant
contribution to the legal community and the Cobb County Bar Association
and who exemplifies the finest characteristics of a younger lawyer."
We are thrilled to have such a talented and successful attorney as a partner
of our firm, which will now become Jones & Swanson, LLC. We are excited
for this new partnership and for what 2015 has in store, and wish each
of you a wonderful and successful New Year as well!
