Mr. Hassinger was there for me a couple of time when I needed more than a "lawyer" during a couple of tragic events in my life. He is the first attorney I've ever met who LITERALLY "droppped everything" to come to my rescue (in his gardening clothes) within 45 minutes of my call. Mr. Hassinger is not only brilliant when it comes to the letter of law, but he has this knack of making one feel "at ease" during the most trying times due to both his demeanor and knowledge of the law. You just feel as if things are going to be okay; and then when he's done doing his lawyer thing, you realize that things are ACTUALLY going to be okay....just like he said...no matter the judgement. If you need an advocate, then this is the guy to call. The law is his Samurai sword, and he know how to use it to help win a case....or in my case....cases. Great lawyer, and worth every penny.
I retained Doug to handle my divorce. He did not keep me informed appropriately, at times it took weeks for him to respond. He had to reschedule court dates multiple times due to being overloaded with cases.
Answered a question on AVVO promptly and with insightful points. So refreshing to have a response that not only captures the essence of the question, but also shows a caring attitude. The points he made are ones that I have raised with 2 other hired attorneys who dismissed them as irrelevant. I wish I had hired Mr. Hassinger.
I had asked a question on AVVO and recieved a quick response very detailed and accurate. I thank you.
Mr. Hassinger has helped me with multiple legal issues over the last ten years. I hired him to represent me for a divorce, involving child custody, visitation, and support. The second was a parental rights case, which was very difficult on many personal levels. Mr. Hassinger was very professional and extremely helpful during the entire process. The third case was a child adoption which he made very easy, and pleasurable. I recommend Mr. Hassinger to anyone who I think may have a need, and will also continue to consult him in the future, if needed. His personal relations are tactful and comforting during legal hardships, and I was pleased with the overall outcome in each case.
I was very grateful to have Mr. Hassinger represent me in my divorce last year. My ex, who is an attorney, was pretty intimidating when it came to negotiating child support and alimony, even though it wasn't me who was unfaithful in the marriage. Mr. Hassinger is very competent and a confident negotiator. He didn't shy away from my ex's hostile tactics, and instead, got me a fair deal. Divorce is enough of a nightmare without having to worry about being represented well or dragging out. In this case, I didn't have to, since Mr. Hassinger made sure every detail was taken care of. He did an excellent job helping me get through this ordeal and on with my life. I definitely recommend him.
Doug was awesome. He handled my divorce without ever going to court. We had a mediator, but Doug was clearly in charge.
I had to change the custody and visitation arrangement with my ex, which turned into a battle. Doug had been there before, and had all the information he needed to do the job and do it right. It was almost funny to watch him have all the details at his fingertips while her lawyer fumbled through a stack of papers.
