Immigration Law



David Swaim is a Board-Certified Attorney in Immigration and Nationality Law and has been the Managing Partner of David Swaim & Associates, formerly Tidwell, Swaim & Associates, since 1991. The firm has represented over 45,000 cases with a 95% success rate on behalf of individuals, employers, companies, and families that covered all areas of immigration law. He has developed many of the most innovative techniques for H-1 and labor certification cases, as well as created immigration procedures at dozens of companies throughout the United States. Mr. Swaim pursued Immigration Law because, “it is a practice in U.S. law that deals primarily with people and not money. There is a special feeling when you are able to overcome the power and resources of the Federal Government, whether the Immigration Service, Department of Labor or US State Department, to force the Government to follow the law and treat people fairly and justly.” Mr. Swaim and his associates are known for their extensive depth of experience and are recognized throughout the legal community and courts by their proven, industry-leading practices. Most importantly, they are known by clients to successfully navigate and expedite their cases through an ever-changing legal and political environment. Mr. Swaim is also one of the few attorneys in Texas authorized to represent both the University of Texas system and the Texas A&M system. Committed to immigration education, Mr. Swaim speaks at seminars to international students and for several colleges and universities. Over the years, he has held many leadership positions in his community including sitting on the board of directors of Bent Tree Country Club and DFW International Airport. He is the founder of Dallas HR’s Global HR Professional Emphasis Group. View More ›
