“When you’ve got a defendant who has received as substantial a sentence as Bobby Ferguson did, it seems that either the government doesn’t have confidence in the previous conviction or is just engaging in piling on,” veteran defense lawyer William Swor said Monday.

Like the corruption trial, the bid-rigging case alleges Ferguson capitalized on his friendship with Kilpatrick to fix bids and receive millions in public contracts.

“To the extent the two cases are inter-related, there’s an argument that (a conviction) would be concurrent, so why is the government wasting all of these additional taxpayer dollars?” Swor asked.

TESTIMONIALS

Bill is the best attorney I have had the pleasure of meeting. He is very professional and he is the best in his field. He clearly explains what is happening and the different choices that are available while giving his opinion on the choices that should be made. I highly recommend Bill to anyone you will not be disappointed.

I have had the best of intentions to share the great experience I had dealing with Mr. Swor and his team. After being acquitted, it has taken time to try and get my life back to what it used to be. That being said, as I continue to get back on my feet, I will forever be grateful. I retained Mr. Willam Swor as my attorney in September 2014. On my way back home to Canada from a routine business trip, I was accused of smuggling cocaine into America. This accusation if convicted, carried a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years. Needless to say this was the start of a 6 month nightmare that I would never have imagined and had the possibility of becoming a 10 year nightmare if convicted.  Mr. Swor and his dedicated and brilliant legal team did everything within  their power, scouring the globe to find  evidence to confirm my innocence. During the whole legal process,  Mr. Swor displayed empathy  through his actions  providing assurance, continuous communication  and support to my wife, two  young sons, extended family and friends. In March of 2015, I was acquitted of all charges . I was able to go back home and be with my family.  Mr. Swor and his team believed in me and helped me prove my innocence.  Thank you

I have personally witnessed the level of detail Mr. Swor puts into the defense of his clients. Nothing is left to chance. If someone I loved needed a criminal defense attorney in the Detroit area, he would be my first choice.
