Who We Are
The Story - The Whole Truth and Nothing But...
A former Department of Justice Technology Executive along with fellow Judges from across the country decided there needed to be a positive change in the way the justice system serves the public. When the concept was developed to apply the best technology resources with some of the greatest legal experts, it was Swift Judgment's time to come to the forefront of the public's eye. It's helping to shape, provoke and reform an important part of the judicial system. We are about influencing and engaging back with the litigants, logically during an emotionally sensitive process. For many citizens of our great nation, small claims court is usually the first and sometimes the only interaction that many people have with the courts, but that doesn't mean that it has to be an arduous, dragged out process. As a company, we have eliminated the bureaucracy and charge forward with progress for you, personally and throughout this great nation.
