Scott Swafford is the founder and sole practitioner behind Swafford Law. Scott, a member of the Maryland and DC Bars and the American Bar Association, is a lawyer with experience practicing law at a large international law firm, Arnold & Porter, LLP, and extensive experiences before becoming a lawyer with work for federal agencies, government contractors, and the US military. Scott is AVVO Rated, and appears on numerous other attorney review websites and programs.

Scott is a neighbor and friend that has lived in Maryland since 2001 when he and his family returned from service with the US government overseas in Germany, Belgium, and the United Kingdom, with military deployments to Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Scott currently lives with his three children, who attend local schools. He is active in the local community, having coached or appraised Destination Imagination teams for over seven years, and coached soccer for local children through various programs including Sport4All, for at least that long.

Scott served honorably in the United States Air Force, finishing his career working in military intelligence coordinating a multinational cell supporting North Atlantic Treaty Organization and United Nations activities in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and is a decorated veteran of the first Gulf War.

Scott works hard and does things the “old-fashioned” way, attending law school at night while working full-time during the day as a federal civil servant for NOAA, still coaching activities for his and other neighborhood children, building a two-story treehouse, and graduated summa cum laude, 7th in his class.

Scott believes every client’s legal situation is unique, and each needs advice they can actually use, rather than just be expected to pay for. While he doesn’t shy away from court, Scott’s practice and professional life reflect that sometimes, the best solution isn’t always a legal one, and that seeing the forest for the trees is just as important a skill as being able to read between the lines. And, even when a legal solution is called for, the best one is always the one that gets the best results for his client, not the most work for Scott. After careers in IT and military intelligence, Scott has learned how to be efficient and effective, without spending a lot of time to get an answer.
