Cycling Attorney Craig Swapp JD
Attorney Craig Swapp JD
Personal Injury Attorney Craig Swapp has been cycling since 2009, enjoying both road and mountain biking. “I started off with a simple aluminum road bike and soon discovered how much fun cycling can be,” Craig explains. “Since then, I’ve been impressed with how far cycling technology has come. That’s why I’ve graduated up to a Specialized S-Works. It’s an amazing bike to ride.” In 2016, Craig decided to take up mountain biking, riding a Specialized Epic. “I had a number of friends and family members who were big into mountain biking and finally decided to take the plunge and buy a full-suspension 29er. I soon discovered mountain biking is challenging physically and mentally, but rewarding in terms of getting close to Mother Nature. I’m blessed to live by some of the most incredible scenery and bike trails in the world and a mountain bike gives me the opportunity to experience it first-hand.”
Craig is dedicated to helping injured cyclists. “As the owner and managing partner of Craig Swapp & Associates, I’ve gathered a select number of attorneys, paralegals and staff – many of whom actually cycle – to represent our injured cycling clients. They fully appreciate the medical and legal challenges that cyclists have when involved in a vehicular accident. Usually injuries are severe, which requires our legal skills to ensure the cyclist is fully compensated for his or her injuries and damaged equipment. Sadly, it’s our experience that insurance adjustors do not understand the complexities of an accident between a cyclist and a motor vehicle. It takes the help of an attorney experienced in both personal injury law and cycling to get the cyclist that full and fair settlement.”

Craig graduated from the University of Utah School of Accountancy in 1988 with a bachelor’s of science degree in Accounting. After spending a short time in a large public accounting firm Craig realized his talents and passions could be better used in the practice of law helping level the playing field for those being taken advantage of by big business or government.

While at the University of Utah College of Law, Craig served as a senior editor for the Journal of Contemporary Law.

After five years with Siegfried and Jensen, Craig chose to leave that company to open his own firm which is now known as Craig Swapp & Associates.
