“Choosing the right attorney is no accident.” Our attorneys are well-qualified to handle your car accident claim. The accident lawyers at Swope Law, P.L. have helped hundreds of accident victims throughout the Tampa Bay Area in the last 15 years. Each client meets with a lawyer at the initial free consultation. To enable our clients open access to their lawyer, our clients receive their lawyer’s cellular telephone number and personal email address.

Most accident law firms only handle personal injury legal matters. At Swope Law, P.L., our lawyers are experienced in handling a wide range of legal matters, including debt collection claims, foreclosure defense, contract claims and defenses, real estate litigation, business litigation, and landlord/tenant law. Many times, our accident clients’ injuries prevent them from working which can result in a whole host of additional legal problems. Most accident law firms will refer their clients out to other lawyers to handle these ancillary legal matters. At Swope Law, P.L., we will assist our clients with any legal matter that is within our abilities. Many times, we are able to handle these other legal matters without collecting a fee from our clients up front.
