Intelligent and ethical
Elizabeth Douglas is the epitome of an excellent lawyer. She is highly intelligent, ethical, and knows the law. Her extreme attention to detail and her high standards of excellence kept me at ease during the most difficult time of my life. Throughout the entire process, I was able to put my complete trust in Elizabeth because she was compassionate towards not only me, but also my children. I Know she had our best interest at heart. She got to know me as a person. I didn’t feel as if I was just another file number. She was extremely personable and was genuinely interested in my and my children’s well-being. She knows the law - and if there was something she was uncertain about, she conducted the proper research to ensure she had the correct information. She is polished, and highly organized, which subdued my anxiety. I am glad that she was my attorney because she had to do a lot of much needed hand-holding and reassuring, as I knew nothing about the divorce process.

Very knowledgeable and professional on the law and strategies
It was SUCH a pleasure to have found an attorney and the firm who cares about my needs. Legal matters are very stressful and draining the last thing I need is someone taking my money and disregarding the objective why I hired them. No way not here!! I have to admit my guard was up after speaking with several attorneys I wasn't feeling too confident I was going to find what I was looking for but I did. Right from the beginning I had dropped my guard and was able to open up to Ms. Douglas. I finally found an attorney who understands what people are going through instead of just looking to get my retainer fee. After hiring Ms. Douglas I have spoken to many people at her law firm who are all very caring to me as a client and on point with following up and that's important to me. She has also surrounded herself with some very talented attorneys on her staff. I found Ms. Douglas via Google but now I'm very glad to know her and her staff. I usually don't fill out surveys but I made an exception in this case because I feel she is a special kind of attorney. If you haven't given her a call you don't know what you're missing.

Consulted with Ms. Douglas
I went for a consultation with Ms. Douglas and was very impressed with her organization and being prepared for our first consultation with knowing most of the basic facts. Before coming into the office she had me fill a questionnaire on line that gave her a good insight to the my case and she also did some background searches as well. This saved a lot of time wasting and I really liked her approach. She had game plan for how to deal with my case, unfortunately I was too far along to switch but would have if the timing was right.

A True Appreciation of Legalese
With prolonged procrastination I was in search of an attorney with whom I could feel comfortable and who I could trust with embarking on the journey of discussing my final life wishes. Ms. Douglas was recommended to me by a very reliable source. At first meeting I felt that Ms. Douglas shared an interest in my request for a Will and health proxy, yet at the same time provided me with questions and issues that I had not considered. She helped me toward a greater realization of the seriousness of the decisions that I wished to make. I received a document from Mrs. Douglas that further assisted me with the process of thinking through my goals and allowed me to be more specific about my needs. The document was reviewed and I was contacted in a timely manner for a followup consult. As I was not familiar with the legal terminology used in documents such as these, Mrs. Douglas allowed and even encouraged me to ask questions and make comments related to the information provided. Mrs. Douglas was very prompt and thorough in her response to my concerns. Appointments were always kept and if reschedules were needed they were done so well in advance. I am extremely pleased with my choice of Mrs. Douglas and with the final documents that I possess.

Law Offices of Elizabeth A. Douglas is Phenomenal !!!
I recently worked with the best lawyers of all time; Elizabeth Douglas, Esq and Donny. They are very professional, extremely organized, easy to talk to, patient, understanding, empathic, strategic plans and strong/solid approaches. They give BEST LEGAL ADVICE for every situation and circumstance. They know their law! (Unfortunately, I cannot say that about most lawyers). They truly care about your case. They want you and your family to receive what you deserve. And the staff is absolutely amazing and easy to work with! It was a great pleasure having them represent me for my Divorce and Child Custody/Support case.

The Truth and Nothing But The Truth
A friend referred me to the Law firm of Elizabeth A. Douglas and I thank her for doing so. This Law firm has the specialized knowledge to carry out the necessary steps to get results. Elizabeth and the staff are very professional. Elizabeth and the staff when answering questions and returning phone calls remain businesslike and do not waste any time. I highly recommend this Law firm and if necessary will use again.

Would definitely hire again!
I contacted Elizabeth a year ago for a consultation, she explained me everything that I would need as a mom of 3 and deserved for 13 years of marriage. I hire her firm this year and it was a pleasure working with them, not only they fit all my expectations but also helped me make some adjustments that I needed it to change last minute, I was divorce within a week after signing my stipulation. I can't say enough thank you, for all.

Excellent Family Attorney!
Elizabeth is by far the most competent, compassionate and knowledgable attorney I've ever worked with. She makes you feel like yours is the only case she's handling, she fully familiarizes herself with your case and doesn't skip a beat when consulting with you or when representing you in court. She is appropriately forceful and is extremely likable. She has a knack for making you feel like everything will work out in your favor. I've had moments of disappointments where Elizabeth has had to pull me back, she is great at laying out the facts of your case and putting things in perspective. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who needs legal assistance in the family law realm. You will not be disappointed - she is highly skilled and above all she cares for her clients. I can't say enough good things about her!

Highly Recommended!
I came to Elizabeth with a very difficult situation, a single mother of three kids after 14 years of marriage. She returned phone calls, was very attentive, explained all options thoroughly and she did it with care. I was able to TRUST her and she did a fantastic job, with a quick and smooth divorce. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for legal matters in regards to family and or divorce.
