About Our Firm
The Bartow law firm of Boswell & Dunlap LLP was founded in 1900, and we are Polk County's oldest law firm. For over 100 years Boswell & Dunlap attorneys have provided personal, high quality legal representation to our clients. When we undertake a client's representation, it is always our purpose to aggressively pursue the client's goals, protect and preserve the client's interest, and to seek to achieve fairness and justice.
The firm began in an office on Main Street in Bartow when Clarence A. Boswell and Solon G. Wilson formed a partnership for the practice of law in 1900. The Dunlap Firm also began its existence in a Main Street office in Bartow when it was founded in 1954. The two firms operated continuously until the merger in 1998 that created Boswell & Dunlap LLP.
Our firm's longevity is a testament to the close and longstanding relationships shared between our lawyers and their clients. Our firm has provided legal representation to our clients for generations and decades through personal service and careful attention to clients' interests and needs. Boswell & Dunlap has represented the Polk County School Board since 1939, Polk State College since 1963 and the City of Bartow since 1971. During this time the firm has also enjoyed longstanding relationships with numerous businesses and families in Bartow and Polk County.
As presented in other sections of this website, Boswell & Dunlap represents its public and private clients in many different areas of the law, including both litigated issues in state and federal courts and transactional matters. While we enjoy the opportunity to represent some of the largest businesses and agencies in Polk County, we recognize that the concerns of individuals and small businesses are no less important to those clients. It is always our goal to provide superior legal representation and personal service to those whom we have the privilege to call our clients.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss possible representation with anyone needing representation in Polk County and surrounding Central Florida.
