Douglas helped me through some difficult times with the criminal justice system and kept me informed & wanted what was best for me the whole time , & the final outcome was to my benefit. Hopefully I won't need a criminal defense attorney again , but I know that if I do Douglas is a man you can count on.
At the time I contacted Doug, I was in a situation that seemed impossible to win. Upon conversing with Doug, it became apparent to me that he was the lawyer for me. He was nonjudgemental of my situation, extremely understanding, and above all, he put me at ease with the knowledge that I was being represented by someone who had my best interest at heart. During my case, Doug was tenacious and would not take "no" for an answer. My case lasted almost a year, and at no point did Doug lose faith that we could win or try to tell me to "take a deal". The outcome of my case was better than I could have ever hoped for. In my opinion, Doug is truly the best Minnesota has to offer, and you could not go wrong in choosing him to represent you.
Doug Kans and his team were exceptional. From the very first phone call from Doug himself, I knew I was in good hands. I was treated respectfully and I felt that my concerns and worries were heard, understood, and taken care of. I was a first time offender on a DUI charge, and had no idea what would happen, what kind of sentence I might receive, or how to handle any legal matters associated with my case. Doug, his partner, and his assistant were all involved in answering any question I had and keeping me informed. The outcome of my sentence was something I did not know was even possible, but Doug bargained it down. Because of Doug and his work, this will not affect my professional career, and I will come out unscathed. I sincerely recommend this lawyer to anyone, not only for his high degree of professional know how, but also for his tenderness with situations that need a certain degree emotional awareness. Doug and his team are by far the best at what they do and I would recommend hiring them in a heartbeat.
I wanted to express my sincere thanks to Doug Kans and his law firm for their outstanding work on my DWI case. Doug had the experience and knowledge to get me through this difficult time. His genuine concern & respect for me was very comforting. With his calm, professional and caring manner, he took the time to keep me informed every step of the way. Doug was able to attain the best possible outcome and truly deserves the right to be called “the best of the best”! To anyone needing this type of legal assistance, I would highly recommend Doug Kans.
Doug Kans was an amazing lawyer. He worked through all of the DWI issues that we faced and explained everything to us perfectly. He represented us very well to the judge and got us the absolute minimum required of punishment. We don't think any one else could have done a better job and are very grateful for his services.
