    I have known Doug for many years and I have great regard for his abilities. He is not only an excellent lawyer (with specific experience in criminal defense, DUI defense, and military-related matters), but his community involvement has provided many benefits for all Savannahians. (BTW, I have no idea why we're called "Savannahians" instead of "Savannans," or something like that.)
