”Brian Lathen did a fantastic job at getting me what I deserved in my settlement from a car accident that occurred three years ago. He was honest, helpful, and an all around great person to work with. His assistant Allie was fantastic as well. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone and would use him again if I ever needed it.Destinee ThomasCar Accident
”Before I came into their office, I was overwhelmed with medical bills, doctor visits, and the other party's insurance company urging me to settle for a small amount. After visiting with Travis, he listened intently, explained my options clearly, and then let my wife and I take time to decide whether or not we want representation. After agreeing to have them represent me, all the stresses I had were removed, and his staff took care of anything accident related. If you are looking for a law firm that has your best interests in mind, is professional, and genuinely cares about you, I highly recommend Swanson Lathen Prestwich, PC.Robert Potts

”Travis Prestwich did an excellent job pursuing the large national company that runs the care home where my mom lives and suffered abuse by another tenant. He followed through obtaining the necessary documents and reports about the incident to secure a settlement that was substantial enough punishment to get the facility’s attention and step up their oversight. Thank you so much for your help!Lisa PeartNursing Home Neglect
”I was walking and a truck hit me. I had to have all my arm muscles reattached in surgery and extensive physical therapy, massage and chiropractic. Attorney Brian Lathen worked hard to get me a settlement from the insurance company. He is professional yet friendly, honest, knowledgeable, and thorough. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.Shauna CoulsonPedestrian Accident
