    I have had the honor of having Mr. Swope as opposing counsel on many cases over the years..Very rarely am I as highly impressed with other counsel as I am with Mr. Swope. He is an incredibly talented trial attorney and a wonderful human being, traits that are invaluable when searching for attorneys..As such, I endorse him 100%/
