Excellent attorney!!
Douglas and his team were great to work with, Everything was done efficiently, professionally and in a timely manner. He helped us in the pandemic era and could finish our deal in a very protective way to our interests. He is incredibly intelligent and responsive, I was sending him emails, in no time I was receiving the reply, on weekends or holidays, if it is urgent and sensitive, for sure he responds to your needs immediately. Douglas made the home selling process for a first time substantially easier and much less stressful in this difficult time.

highly recommend working with Doug
Doug worked with us to close on our first home and I can't begin to state how valuable it was to have him in our corner. There were several things that arose that made our closing far from seamless and Doug jumped through hoops to get it done. He acted as our advocate and kept me in the loop the entire time detailing everything. I would highly recommend him and his office.

Excellent Real Estate Attorney
I had a great experience working with Doug. We worked with Doug to close on our condo. I'm originally from WA and came from a family of DIY'ers, but after a great referral, I decided to hire an attorney and hired him to represent us and perform closing. This was one of the best decisions I made in buying a home hands down. Doug not only helped connect us with key personnel involved in the home-buying process, but was also responsive and really knew what he was doing. Will recommend him and his colleagues to anyone!

Client Review
Doug was referred to us through our real estate agent and mortgage broker and assisted us with the purchase of our first home. Our experience couldn't have been better - the entire process was clear, straight-forward, stress-free and Doug was always available when we needed him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone - Doug is a total pleasure to work with and we absolutely would have been lost without him!
