Ballard Spahr attorney Joseph A. Kanefield is among several Arizona lawyers who say they have tremendous respect for Judge Peter B. Swann, who sits on the bench for the Arizona Court of Appeals Division One. Mr. Kanefield noted that Judge Swann’s understanding of the law has earned him a solid reputation in many legal circles.

“Judge Swann is one of the brightest minds on the legal bench,” said Mr. Kanefield, who played music with the judge for nine years in a band named “Joe Lies.” “His opinions are consistently concise, well-reasoned, and understandable. Any non-lawyer could read a Judge Swann opinion and easily understand the case and legal issues.”

Mr. Kanefield added that “anyone who appears before Judge Swann will leave the court feeling pleased that Judge Swann took the time to carefully review the filings and arguments and [will feel] confident that his ultimate decision will be the result of careful thought and deliberation.”
