Dana is an extremely competent, professional and trustworthy attorney. She responds quickly, explains thoroughly, and offers a broad and specific view of circumstances. I would not hesitate to recommend or engage Dana in the future.
After three other lawyers wouldn't even return my calls, I found Dana. She spent two hours going over my case with me, and didn't charge for the time. She ultimately took the case. It was a long and difficult lawsuit, but in the end I was very satisfied. I felt really confident watching Dana, she really knew her stuff and I was impressed the way she handled the other lawyers. She was also patient when I was kind of freaking out, and she explained everything very well.
Dana Douglas is a tough, knowledgeable lawyer who understands employment law. In May of 2012, I was terminated as a temp employee and I believed it was because of retaliation from claims of sexual harassment and time card violations. I was devastated. Dana took my case and helped me get a decent settlement. She cared for me not only as a client, but as a person.
I was in the review process whether she would take my case, which she explained that she was still considering but that she needed certain things done, then she would proceed.
After some effort from my previous attorney who was not able to continue the case, she disappeared off the radar. Her office said she was out ill only today (about 3 weeks after our initial meeting); however during this period she did respond once via phone call call from my past attorney to ask for more work to be done but mentioned nothing about being ill.
This has cost nearly one month of waisted time and effort. She only needed to tell me during or after our initial meeting that she was not to taking the case. Even within a week would have been acceptable. But almost 1 month was lost, while asking others to do work for her to help her 'decide'.
Although she seems intelligent and competent, I would not recommend Dana Douglas as an attorney.
Ms. Douglas took on my class action case and took it all of the way to a successful conclusion. It was a real pleasure to meet her and her amazing staff and have them on my side. The entire time, I felt as though my case really mattered to her and the people who work for her. I would recommend her highly to anyone who is in need of a very experienced, tough, and knowledgeable attorney who doesn't pull any punches in the court room. I'm not kidding when I say that she fought for me. She really looked out for what was best for me and my case and treated me like I mattered. I have also retainer her and the firm for an auto accident case and have no doubt that she will kick butt for me again!
Dana took my case when others said I had none and the results I got were far above expectations! Dana was clear, informative, and patient when explaining the issues, risks, and options. I have dealt with many attorneys in the past and I am truly impressed with not only her skill and knowledge, but with her honesty and trustworthiness. She did not feed me a line to get me sold and then back off my case once I decided to retain her. She did not wait till the last minute and then hastily try to get the minimum done. I almost hope I get another case, because I would hire her in an instant!
My case was lost by another attorney. Dana Douglas took it on and got it reinstated, then aggressively went after the other side and won my case! She and her entire firm were responsive and really know the law. Dana has a "big personality." She is tall, aggressive, really smart and commands attention.
We met Dana on a referral from another lawyer. She treated us like family and dived into our case right away. She was always on top of things, and had the upper hand the whole time. We were very satisfied with her work, her attention to us and our case, and the result she obtained for us.
