"Upon my first visit to the office, I was in an unfamiliar part of town.  I was also bewildered and experiencing anxiety.  I was not even sure I should be there or how to proceed in a very new situation where my back was against a wall.  The first person I met in the office was Ms. Patti.  I have to say that Patti has the absolutely right demeanor and is extremely successful in her position.  Patti has a slight but comforting smile and persona.  She is confident but not arrogant in processing the needs of clients.  I do not feel that this is a small achievement in any way.  I feel Patti in many ways sets the tone for the office as the gate keeper of the office and emotional clients.  Patti definitely helped me thru this process with her silent and dedicated service to me, the clients and the office."

"Steve has built good relationships with others in the community.  It was extremely helpful and productive to work with anyone he recommended from having the home value assessed to other services.

I have only met with and dealt with a few others in the office on occassion.  Each and every person was caring and respectful.

Overall, my experience with Steve, Patti and the rest of the team has been excellent  There were situations and challenges after filing that I thought I would never get thru.  The Swift team was there to listen, help and provide any service or time I asked for.  The calm and professional demeanor of the office is greatly appreciated.  The joy of ending my bankruptcy is also met with a good feeling of knowing there are caring individuals in Colorado Springs that actually work to help people and to make a lasting difference in the lives of so many. "

John Callahan 02 - Colorado Springs, CO

"Upon entering Steve's office, one immediately knows they have entered his "zone".  Steve will talk, think, contemplate, then act.  He then spins his chair around, garbs paper, types on the computer and zaps something thru the printer.  Occasionally, a document needs to be scanned or something else from outside the office is needed, and Zap someone appears without having to yell down a hall or call out.  There is definitely a team here that is in sync.  There may be a question out of the blue suddenly or a brief conversation about something else.  The whole time, Steve is on point.  I felt from day one, a trustworthy confidence in placing my future in his hands.  I was not wrong.  I also never once felt rushed, brushed off or that my concerns were not his.  I felt that Steve is in this for me and his clients.  I have a debt, gratitude and confidence in Steve and the Swift team that far exceeds the fees pain.
