“For the first time in my 60 years, I finally experienced what it is like to have legal representation that I absolutely knew and felt were unequivocally advocating in my best interest! From our initial consultation on a difficult worker’s comp case, to a successful resolution that spanned several years, Attorney Grauel and his outstanding paralegal Diane were in my corner every step of the way. They fully explained the laws that govern workers comp in NH, and how those laws would and did apply to my case. The calm guidance and advice without all the over-hype allowed me to make informed decisions without feeling pressured. In addition to getting my workers comp case settled, Doug and Diane also took an active role while assisting me to clear all the hurdles required to secure and receive Social Security disability benefits, an effort for which I cannot thank them enough!” I you have a worker’s comp case you absolutely need to be represented, and I highly recommend the Grauel Law Office! Sincerely, Dave

Workers comp case
I hurt my knee on the job in 2016. The workers comp insurance company agreed that the knee was injured on the job and paid for PT and a meniscus operation. I was still in pain after the operation and insisted on another MRI. It was determined that I would need a total knee replacement operation. The insurance company told me "you don't need a lawyer" , then their lawyer sent me a notice that I needed to go to an Independent Medical Examination. That's when I found Doug on the internet. Long story less long, he took my case and won unanimous decisions with four mediators at two different hearings at the Department of Labor. I got my knee replaced after 2+ years from the initial accident and Doug was amazing. Highly recommend his services. I would not have prevailed without him.

Knowledgable and caring lawyer
I had injuries at work, and it can be intimidating to deal with your employer and the workers comp carrier. Doug explained the law clearly, answered all my questions, and he fought for my rights under the wc laws, which I did not know. He is very professional and down to earth, he listens to you and cares about your situation. Then he forms a plan to ensure your rights are respected and will fight for you. I thank God I found Doug, after suffering injuries at work and the workers comp carrier started hassling me, Doug fought for me all the way. His paralegal Diane is awesome, and I am grateful and very thankful I had them on my side. Anyone having trouble with workers comp after being injured at work should call Doug for a consultation!

The best Lawyer I have ever known
Doug Grauel has been my lawyer for almost 3 yrs now. It is terrible when you have no where to turn to when you are hurt really bad at work and are going up against a large company and their insurance company. You find out really quick they are only interested in money and how much they can save and could care less about the employee or how badly he is hurt.Well I had to find a lawyer and thank God I found Doug. He did not allow the ins. co. to take advantage of me and they tried many times.Doug and his staff fought for me everyday and they do not treat you like a client they treat you like family. Even when my case is finally over I will keep in contact with Doug and Dianne because of the way they treated me through this whole process. Doug also keeps you informed every step of the way and answers all questions and concerns. I cannot give high enough praises for Doug and his staff I would highly recommend them to anyone. They truly are a God send. They made an extremely difficult and painful situation much better. You will not find a better lawyer anywhere Thanks Ronald

SS Disability
Attorney Grauel put together a presentation that was phenomenal. He kept me in the loop of what was going on throughout the year regarding the status of my case. When it came time for the court hearing, the Judge looked at my file and immediately signed off on my case and we won the disability hearing. This was due to Attorney Grauel's persistence in obtaining all the necessary documentation from my physicians. He was very thorough and did not leave out any details in my treatments. I would highly recommend Grauel Law office.

Great attorney
I have heard many horror stories regarding lawyers and workers comp. I am so lucky to have had Doug for my attorney. He was very prompt and professional in all aspects of my case and I didn't feel at any time like he wasn't fighting for me. Doug gave me clear options in my case and made me feel like I had plenty of people on my side. I would recommend Doug Grauel for anybody seeking a lawyer for a workers comp case.

"An excellent lawyer who treats clients with patience, care, understanding, and utmost professionalism - an even better person and I wholeheartedly recommend for future services."
Workers compensation Attorney | May 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I first noticed Doug through an email group for plaintiff's lawyers that I follow. His contributions show that he's one of a handful of gurus in the workers compensation field. But besides having a sharp legal mind, a client I referred to him said that he was a pleasure to work with. I hope to refer more cases to him in the future."
