Jacqueline Swanson ’13

Partner, Graves & Swanson, LLC

I became a lawyer to fight for the rights of victims of crime and survivors of sexual and domestic violence. Advocacy through litigation and practical change through policy have been the cornerstones of my practice. By taking a holistic approach to representation, my goal is to ensure that every client who walks in the door leaves better off than when they arrived. There are many paths to justice, each as varied and unique as the individuals we serve. We must be willing to redefine traditional norms and transcend the bounds of convention if we are able to truly tailor effective remedies for those who need them most. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing and recovery: this is the guiding principle that propels us forward, as we strive to achieve the best possible outcome for each and every client.
