Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • William Babich

    I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. I supervised Doug when he worked for me early in his career. Doug is a smart and hard working attorney. He has sound business judgment and great ability to problem solve.

  • Scott William Drusch

    Intelligent, articulate, and always prepared. After winning a case against a large company that attempted "scorched-earth" litigation against his clients, opposing counsel paid Doug the compliment of referring to him as the "bully" in the lawsuit. I have worked closely with Doug for the past year, and he would be my first choice to represent me on any business or real-estate matter.
