I had a very complicated and difficult case that took over a year to unwind all the details. The D.A. wanted prison time for me that scared me to death because of the prison and I still have a family to support. Doug worked and worked hard, and he didn't give up on trying to get me the best deal. He fought for me until the D.A. finally agreed to put me on a monitoring bracelet which not only kept me out of prison but also allow me to work and take care of my family while serving a much reduced sentenced. Is Doug Myers a life saver? In my opinion and experience ABSOLUTELY YES! He is honest and understands the needs of his clients. Doug Myers is Priceless in my book.
Doug Myers is an excellent, caring, creative professional. He proposed a very low cost solution to my legal problem that ended up settling the matter to my satisfaction.
Doug Myers is an incredible criminal defense attorney. I was looking at a maximum of 7 years in prison for a DUI with injury. Through many court appearances, Doug was able to negotiate a plea bargain of 6 months jail time. Doug was consistent, patient, informative, intelligent, and organized. He also never sugar coated anything. He always gave me straight forward advise. Doug Myers is truly an excellent attorney.
I don't know where to begin. My grandson had been charged with a major criminal offense. My grandson, husband, and I began interviewing attorneys. We were worried, anxious, and extremely scared. Doug was recommended by a friend who works in the court system, and we will be forever grateful for that friend! Within a matter of minutes of sitting in his office, we knew we were in the right place. Doug has a calming effect which comes from the overall sense of caring you pick up on from the beginning. He listened, asked all the right questions, did not judge, and was very forthright with his feedback. We were involved with the courts for approximately 7 or 8 months. Doug was there every step of the way. His knowledge of criminal law is incredible. His integrity cannot be matched. He guided and assisted us with major decisions that needed to be made. My grandson, who was 20 at the time, trusted and respected him, something he has a very hard time doing. What started out as a possible 25+ year sentence, ended with greatly reduced charges and a 9 month sentence. A young man's life was literally saved. My husband and I felt strongly from the beginning that it was important for our grandson to be fully accountable for his actions, but be treated fairly and not destroyed. Doug gave us that. What we appreciated the most, besides his obvious expertise and skill, was the fact that Doug dealt with our grandson in a direct, honest, and sometimes confronting manner, and he did it with true caring. At times, I wondered if we were in an attorney's office or a therapist's. His intuition and input on "life" was so very important to my grandson at this point in time. Doug is not only an incredible attorney, he is also a good man. We owe him more than we can ever repay.
Douglas Myers was very honest about my case from the first appointment. He was upfront with the fee he would charge (a flat fee for the whole process) and did not continue to add fees as time progressed. He was able to negotiate a fair settlement to my case that allowed me to receive a less restrictive sentence than the prosecution was seeking. He kept me informed of my options all throughout the judicial process. In addition, when it was discovered than an error had been made in my probation restrictions, he fought to correct the error with a modification, without charging me extra. Douglas Myers is a man of integrity who will use his legal knowledge and experience for the benefit of his clients.
I Highly recommend Attorney Myers. He worked very hard on my case and never tried to settle the case early so he could move on to other clients. He always had my best interest as a priority and I will always be greatful. I don't believe another attorney could have done the fantastic job that Attorney Myers did on my case. He worked until I got an amazing deal on my case and I am so happy to have chosen such a Great Attorney that knows the Law so well but also such an Honest Person. I hope I never need an attorney again but if I do or someone that I know needs an attorney, Attorney Doug Myers will be my first call. Thanks again Doug for your hard work!!
I was extremely disappointed in this attorney's handling of my case, particularly in the preliminary hearing. I felt he failed to include factual information that could easily have responded to and countered the District Attorney's position. He appeared unfamiliar with the specific case law in my situation. I believe he allowed to District Attorney to overwhelm him, which later resulted in my charges being upraded. He did not keep me informed regularly and appeared more concerned about money than my outcome.
