Review Douglas Silvis
  • Appreciation review

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Darlene

    Today I write to praise my attorney Doug Silvis. He has been my attorney for over 25 years. He has provided valuable representation in a number of different circumstances. He has helped and guided me in the building and growth of two successful businesses. All aspects of assistance for these companies were needed; from corporate establishment to mergers and partner relations to secession planning.
    Doug has been a friend and helped our family through several difficult situations. He is a community leader and a strong Christian. Additionally, he supports many local charities and organizations. I would recommend him. Thank you. Darlene

  • Honest, upstanding lawyer

    Doug helped me thru some family turmoil. When my Brother in Law passed and my sister was in a memory care unit. He helped me get copies of his will, something the lawyer in Florida would not send me. He answered questions regarding my options, and counseled me on things to be aware of. He also helped with a Power of Attorney for me to gain control of my sister's life. My sister is doing MUCH better, and we look forward to moving her to Georgia. Doug was a great help.

    We contacted Mr. Silvis in regard to re-doing our Last Will & Testaments. We explained to him what we felt needed to be updated as well as changed. He was very attentive to our needs, listened, made suggestions and recommendations as to how we could arrive at finalizing what needed to be done. We achieved this in less time than we thought, and were pleased with the finished results. We both felt Mr. Silvis was very reasonable in costs also.

    Mr. Doug Silvis is a lawyer that makes you want to trust lawyers. He is a godly man who lives out his faith personally and professionally. He listens, then he recommends. We had the privilege of using him to do our Living Trust. He and his staff were thorough and patient to explain everything as we went through the lengthy process. I would feel extremely comfortable coming to Doug for all my legal needs.

    He made a very stressful stituation very tolerable. He was very, very fair with his pricing. He made me feel comfortable discussing issues that had been really stressful for me. I feel now that I can live life to the fullest having all of this taken care of. He told me any time I wanted to change, all I have to do is call.

  • Top Notch Firm

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Joy

    My husband and I used this firm to help with the purchase of a home from the estate of a deceased individual. Since we did not go through a realtor to purchase the home, Mr. Silvis and his partners and employees provided the proposed contract for the purchase of the home. They worked in a timely manner with our lender, searched and prepared deeds and performed all the other legal duties and kept us informed throughout every step of the process.

    Mr. Silvis is professional, yet friendly. Prior to meeting Mr. Silvis in person, both my husband and I communicated with him several times by phone. We felt that we had become not only first- time clients, but also friends.

    Mr. Silvis was quick to provide us with "same day" answers for all our questions.

  • Review of Doug Silvis

    While knowing "of" Doug Silvis for several years, as he dates back to the '80s with contact with several members of my immediate family in South Florida, I personally had the opportunity to have Doug Silvis quickly and proficiently complete a RLT for my father this past summer. He took over work already begun, "cleaned it up" and then added important elements to complete the documents.

  • Very Helpful Attorney

    Mr. Silvis helped me with a will a couple of months ago. He did a great job of keeping me informed and talking me through all the options I never would have even considered to put in my will. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for an attorney.

  • acted as closing attorney for real estate purchase

    3.0 stars

    Posted by a Real Estate client

    At closing Mr. Silvis advised me, for the first time, that he was not only representing me, the buyer, but also represnting the seller. In what should have been a straight sale I was then informed that part of the property belonged to a non-profit church - which resulted in two separate transactions for me. Complete surprise until I walked in for closing. I thought then and feel now that there was conflict of interest and that I should have been informed before closing with the time to select some other attorney to represent me!

    Douglas Keith Silvis’s response: “My client was the Buyer. He had already signed a contract before seeing us, and been turned down by other local lawyers. He begged us to handle the transaction for him. The seller was represented by another local lawyer already. We did NOT represent both sides. The buyer who made the above comment was not only advised that I had previously represented the seller on one isolated unrelated transaction, but I suggested he retain and offered to refer him to another out of town lawyer because the Seller was so well known in our community that almost everyone knew or had represented him at one time or another. The Buyer begged me to represent him and knew that we even had to get a signed statement from the Seller's attorney that the Seller "waived" conflict of interest. The transaction was hotly negotiated and we recommended the Buyer walk away from the purchase when the Seller wouldn't renogiate his price, but the Buyer was convinced he would come out ahead by closing it, then blamed us when his new business didn't do as well as he had hoped.
