After my son received a summons for a parks violation, I consulted by phone with Doug's partner, Kimberly Summers, and decided to retain her. We came into the firm to meet with her and Doug, and it was Doug who represented us in court. They were both very patient and reassuring, especially with our son; we felt listened to and cared about. Doug went the extra mile for us, personally appealing to the Judge, and walking with us to the local precinct to engage the police regarding the park situation. We recommend him highly!
I had a great experience with Douglas Schneider as he was very clear and consistent when explaining the legal process and my rights. Douglas was able to answer all my questions and kept me informed about every step of my case. I highly recommend Douglas.
Mr Schneider was recommended to me by the lawyer who helped me to buy an apartment in NYC. I was giving a 60 day notice to my landlord excercising a clause that was in my lease because I was in the process of buying a place. My landlord became very difficult and tried to intimidate me by saying there was no such clause and wanted me to be held responsible for the payments until September 2013. My Schneider represented me and wrote a very firm letter with evidence and copies of emails exchanged between me and the management company at the time of the renewal of the lease. The clause was mentioned. The landlord still tried to make me back down. Thanks to his help, he backed down and the case was resolved .
He reassured me and listened to me throughout the process. We prevailed. This was a job well done . I had to deal with two other lawyers in the past and was disappointed, they were very expensive and did not pay attention to my case.
This time I felt confident. He is a good listener and he knows exactly what to say and goes straight to the point. Kudos.
Doug is a fantastic lawyer and skillfully helped me navigate an exceptionally trying period of my life. He is candid, honest, and provided me with excellent advice. I cannot say enough about his integrity, work ethic, and genuine care for his clients. Doug allowed me to reclaim my life and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in need of counsel.
