As a docotr in the community, I know how important it is to be able to rely on a professional in a time of need. I had my own medical crisis and Mr. Swope represented me. He is not only extremely compassionate and highly knowledgable, he is also hands on and responsive. He helped me through a difficult process and I was awarded a very fair judgement. I would highly recommend him.
I initially worked for Mr. Swope as an associate trial attorney years ago. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about PI trial practice, he took the time to mentor junior attorneys, emphasizing ethical but zealous representation, and preparedness.
As a sole practitioner, I have recommended difficult or complicated cases to Mr. Swope, and have had nothing but happy clients and excellent results. If the case merits jury trial, he will try the case....which is not something that can be said of many self proclaimed "trial attorneys".
There is no question that Doug cares about his clients and does what needs to be done to further their interests. He knows his way around the courtroom like a pro and the judges all know and respect him, which is very important. A good choice for those needing someone with strong trial skills.
Attorney Douglas Swope represented myself and my 3 children in an auto accident involving a drunk driver hitting all of us as we were at a stop. He not only thoroughly knew the law but preceded in a professional, diligent and timely fashion. He handled all matters of the situation so we could focus on getting ourselves healed from the accident and then compensated as well. If the situation ever arises again, I would not hesitate to hire him again. He is a true professional! Thank you Mr. Swope!!
I hired Mr. Swope to represent me in a lawsuit against a major insurance company for an MVA-related injury. He handled my case with professionalism, courtesy and expedience. He negotiated an excellent settlement. I would highly recommend him.
Doug is one of the most knowledgeable and hard working attorneys that I know. I am an attorney and used him to represent me in my own accident, and I refer many people his way because he has always done a fantastic job. He is honest and evaluates cases realistically, and has excellent trial skills.
This lawyer was very negative towards my case, I felt like he was working for the opposite side.
