A-List Professional
“I retained Doug Watson on a referral from a friend and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. Doug has an honest, pragmatic and practical style that helped me understand and navigate the court system. He recognizes opportunities, is extremely professional, well-spoken and most importantly- tenacious. I have already referred Doug Watson to others in need.” I wouldn’t walk into the courtroom without him!” -L.G.

Top Lawyer
I highly recommend Douglas Watson. He has been a strong and caring advocate for the various legal situations I've been faced with. He has helped immensely with apartment leases for our children, home purchases for us. Mr. Watson also sensitively assisted my 90-year-old mother through complicated estate planning; his creative and vast understanding of the law is balanced by a common sense knowledge of human behavior.
