The legal service that I received from Joy was exceptional. I would hands down in another legal situation ask for her representation. Most attorney's in the Boise area would not handle a case such as mine,but I was grateful to even have her hear my case,and even more so when she agreed to represent me.

The specifics of my case were in some areas new or unknown to myself and to Eric. Eric was very capable and willing to undertake the needed research to handle this situation. The case took some unexpected turns and seemed totally hopeless. Through his attention to detail and encouraging me to be patient, my case came to a more than satisfactory conclusion. I will refer anyone in need to Eric Swartz.
