Frederick William (“Billy”) Swaim III honed his legal habits early, born to a home where the language of law compromised the daily discourse – with his dad and namesake a law professor for four decades, his mom a litigator, and his sister a future prosecuting attorney.  Billy has earned a reputation among clients and colleagues alike for his hard-work and diligent legal representation in jurisdictions including Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, Texas, and beyond.
