I would recommend Mr. Elder to anyone.
He was a blessing in a bad situation. If not for him I would have been in a lot more trouble. He understood my situation and the reasons I ended up in the courts. I was arrested for DUI not once but twice following the death of my mother.
He worked very hard , was honest, knowledgeable, professional, sympathetic and treated me with dignity and as a friend.
He and his staff were always available when I had a question or concern even while I was in jail.
Every situation was handled very quickly and it was obvious that he was well respected by the judge and all the court staff as well as other attorneys.
Doraid Elder worked hard through the courts system to make sure I received only the minimum punishment allowed by the law.
Having him as an attorney relieved a lot of the stress from a very stressful and scary time.
I can't thank him enough, thank god I found him and would definitely refer and gladly recommend him to anyone who is in trouble.

I would not hesitate to give Mr. Elder the highest recommendation possible.
I was witness to how Mr. Elder worked hard to represent a very good friend of mine. I was present at every court date, meeting and appearance.
This friend was facing the potential of a very serious jail time. He worked through the system to make sure her sentence was the minimum required by the laws.
Mr. Elder was always patient in answering questions and had great empathy for his client, making sure to keep her calm but realistic about the outcomes. He made sure he was available in taking phone calls except when he was in court. When he was unavailable his office staff was equally attentive and knowledgeable about the case.
All in all his service was exceptional and very professional. I have the greatest respect for him and would recommend him to anyone with the highest regard.
Hiring this lawyer changed my life. Case got dismissed. Truly a hard worker and determined lawyer.
My son was charged with muder I hired another lawyer who spoke a big game & mislead us in order to hire that lawyer. At our first hearing we were horrified by the evidence against my son and the lack of ability our first lawyer had with the witnesses. Another lawyer told us about Elder. We did our home work on him then met him. He was very knowledgeable & specialized in criminal defense . I hired Attorney Elder to represent my son. From the first day Elder stepped in court we knew we had the right lawyer. The prosecutor, Judge and everyone in the building knew who he was. At trial he tore part the eye witnesses. The guy is an expert at getting to the truth. He was breaking down grown men on the stand. He caught the police in there lies. I recommend him to everyone. My son is free because of Elder. We owe him our life.
