About Us

The Law Offices of Joan M. Swartz is a small law office with big ideas.  Our practice focuses on helping small businesses and individuals to prepare and plan for the future, to analyze issues in advance and prevent controversy, and to resolve disputes that arise despite the best plans.

Do you need an attorney?  Good question.  There are many reasons why someone would want to consult with an attorney, the top one being peace of mind.  Our firm believes in being proactive.  It is much better to prepare and prevent issues from arising than to have to resolve those issues in a courtroom.  Unfortunately, most people contact a lawyer well after a dispute has arisen and been festering for some time.  In that event, we can represent you aggressively.  We know the law.  That's why people call us.  If you are an attorney, we can help you by serving as local counsel for your valued clients.  We know the laws of Missouri and Illinois and the local court rules for circuit and district courts.

Please browse our site and get familiar with our firm.  Our practice is varied and covers a wide range of practice areas.  To get an idea of the diversity of our practice, take a look at the Recent Cases Resolved page.
