Michael was supportive and explained in detail how the system works in my odd case across the United States. He was able to resolve my case quickly and set up a plan that helped our business put this situation behind us.

Excellent attorney. Kept me well informed every step of the way and handled everything quickly. I never had to wonder what was happening with my case. He really goes out of his way to help you and make it as stress free as possible. I very highly recommend Michael Doukas and if I need an attorney in the future will definitely hire him again.

Mr. Doukas resolved my case. He was professional and expedient. He appeared to have a good knowledge of my rights and laws pertaining to the case.

I know and have secured Mr. Doukas services first 9 years ago and have always been satisfied with his knowledge and ease of explaining complicated matters.
He is the person I go to for any questions and/or issues related to legal matters.
He represented me in several cases with great standing and no non-sense approach to difficult issues.

Had a company calling me on landline, cell phone, and sending out a collector to my house. The SSN was wrong and DOB was not my own date of birth. They had the wrong person and my credit report proved it. Could not get this company to leave me alone, even after telling them to not call me, come on my property, or contact me in any form. Received a referral for Michael Doukas from the San Diego County Bar Association referral service. Mr. Doukas immediately put a stop to the harassment and took proper steps so the company would learn there are consequences for violations of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and California Robbins-Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The end result was very satisfactory and the resolution was quick. Highly recommend Mr. Doukas.

Mr. Doukas helped me to quickly resolve a disputed trade line on my consumer files. Mr. Doukas really impressed me with his diligence to keep me informed at every step of my case. He always responded quickly to my emails and phone calls and that's a huge factor for me in the attorney-client relationship. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Doukas kept me informed during the entire process. He knew I was right and he keep pursuing my case against Bank of America. He is extremely prompt in replying to my emails and was always professional. I would highly recommend him to any other client.

Attorney Michael Doukas gave honest, direct, helpful and much-needed advice on a lawsuit dealing with credit card debt/collection agency. Using a book and the Vista Law Library (very helpful librarians, by the way) I had filed my own challenge and obtained a court date, but other than that, I soon realized I was out of my league, and that if I was going to continue to be my own lawyer, I definitely had a fool for a client. After a free phone consultation where Michael laid out my legal options, the realities of the potential costs a losing decision, and the possible advantages of filing bankruptcy, I decided to pay $250 for Michael to prepare the court forms I needed to send to both the plaintiff and Superior Court. Also Michael advised me on how to handle the court meeting (still pending) on my own, as well as giving a referral for a possible bankruptcy attorney.
I give Michael a definite 5-star rating. Only wished I'd called him earlier in the process. It would have saved me the $370 filing fee and the loss of half a day's work waiting in line to file papers!

Mr. Doukas helped me deal with a complicated situation dealing with a default judgment caused in part by another attorney abandoning me and my case. He researched my case in a timely manner, gave me a number of options and worked with all parties to reach an amicable settlement. I would, and have, recommend him to anyone.

I interviewed other lawyers and found Michael to be the most reposonsive, capable and interested in helping me prevail in this difficult legal matter. His paying attention to detail and truly advocating for me and working with me, makes this negative process a little more positive and workable.
