    I have known Doug for many years. I have opposed Doug hundreds of times when he was a prosecutor for the Village of Elm Grove. He is always cordial, prepared and reasonable in handling matters. He also has a wry sense of humor that I truly enjoy. I also was privileged to watch Doug argue a case before the Wisconsin Supreme Court. He was outstanding!

    I've had the pleasure of knowing Doug since we went to law school together. Without hesitation, I can say that Doug is an extremely talented litigator. He is extremely professional and always well prepared. In my opinion, there are few things more important in law than preparation. Doug has all the skill in the world and will, I am sure, continue to be a fantastic lawyer.
