Our Attorneys

Andrew W. Jones

“One of the things I enjoy most about the practice of law is the opportunity to help people during a time of need. All of our clients have suffered through some type of tragedy and are looking to us for guidance. Helping people during a time of need is rewarding and it’s the reason why I’ve chosen to focus my practice in the area of Personal Injury.”

M. Chase Swanson

“It goes without saying that seeing a case through to an ultimately good and fair result is one of the most fulfilling parts of my job. I take great pride in having well-informed clients who are better able to make good decisions now and in the future for themselves and their families.”
