For the second time, Dale Swope, Managing Partner of Swope, Rodante P.A., has been chosen to chair Florida Justice Association’s Civil Remedies Webinar, which will be held on Friday, October 25, 2019. During the webinar, Mr. Swope and a panel of leading attorneys will discuss the topic of insurance bad faith and best practices to avoid critical errors in the drafting or service of a Civil Remedies Notice, which is a prerequisite to filing a statutory insurance bad faith action.
