You Need an Attorney You Can Trust

When faced with difficult legal decisions, you need an honest and caring lawyer on your side. Eric M. Swinyard's clients know him as an honest attorney, offering sound advice to hundreds of clients and businesses throughout the state of Utah. He can be your confidant in difficult times and help you navigate the legal jungle. He’s an experienced lawyer who can help you with your legal needs.

You Need an Attorney Who Is Available

Some attorneys are notoriously difficult to contact. Not Eric M. Swinyard. We know how frustrating it can be when you can’t get hold of your lawyer to find out what is happening in your case. That’s why we have two offices conveniently located in Salt Lake County and Utah County. Eric Swinyard responds quickly to his messages and keeps you informed as to the status of your case at all times.

A Skilled Utah Family Law and Divorce Attorney

Sometimes relationships don’t go as planned. When seeking a divorce you want what is fair, but often both parties don’t agree. That’s why you need the skilled representation we provide. We offer candid advice and work hard toward making the divorce as painless as possible. If there are children involved, we know you want the best for them, which is why we will represent you on issues such as child custody, child support, and alimony. We can represent you in cases where you feel threatened and need to have protective orders or stalking injunctions put into place when the other party becomes aggressive.

We also offer legal counseling and representation on mediation, adoption, and paternity situations.

We Give Your Peace of Mind with Estate Planning

Don’t let the courts decide where your property goes after you die. We can help you control how your property is handled to each of your beneficiaries by drawing up a will that is binding within the state of Utah. You can ensure each of your beneficiaries’ welfare with our estate planning. Your estate plan should include your last will and testament, your advanced health care directive, your power of attorney, and a living trust. We can go over your estate plan, if you have one, or draw up a new one to be certain that everything is in order.


Eric wants you to be certain we are a good fit for your situation. That’s why we offer a 30-minute consultation that is completely confidential. This way we learn about your case and your needs, and we can both decide if our services are a good fit for your case. Should you decide that we are not the right attorney for you, you still pay nothing for our time.

Don’t Do It Alone; Get Representation You Can Trust

Life can throw some pretty unexpected situations, which is why you need trusted legal representation. Without legal representation during a divorce, you could be taken advantage of by your ex-spouse, you could lose custody of your children, and you might have to forfeit far more than is fair.

Without legal advice during estate planning, your will might be declared inadmissible and the state would have the right to determine who are your heirs and beneficiaries.

Without an advanced health care directive, your family could end up fighting over your disposition with the state, hospital, or even between each other should you become incapacitated.
