I was referred to Doug Swope by another attorney. Upon initial contact I was very impressed with how personable and helpful he was. Going through litigation is never easy but Doug's experience & professionalism was much appreciated. Doug is extremely knowledgeable and was able to give me the information I needed during our consultation to move forward.

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".

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%/
