5.0 out of 5 stars

I can honestly say that MR SWIRLING and MR HISKER are the absolute best CRIMINAL ATTORNEY'S in the state of South Carolina and probably the entire east coast in my honest opinion!! I was facing around 50 or 60 years in prison with some very serious charges and they got me 2 years of probation!!! I'm not saying they can do that for everyone but hiring them as your attorney's will definitely give you the best chance possible of beating your charges or at the very least get you the best plea deal possible so if you have that Knott in your stomach everytime you think about your charges and you basically know your about to go to prison for a long long time hire them as fast as possible and I promise you won't be disappointed
