Best Lawyer Around!
If you want to get something done, look no further. That's what my family attorney suggested. Boy, he was right. She is so quick minded, it's remarkable; Very likable, but a pit bull when you need a pit bull.
Response from Angela Rodante January 15, 2019
Webb, THANKS for your review. It was wonderful working with you and I am thrilled that Chris Boyd & Jim Butler made the connection for our firm to work on your case.

Great Attorney
Angela Rodante is an awesome attorney. She is a partner of Swope, Rodante, P.A., a law firm in Ybor City. Through personal experience, I know that Angela really knows her stuff. She takes on tough cases with the intent to win. I could not have been happier with my results. Anyone who has been catastrophically injured or has suffered insurance bad faith needs to hire her!
