Douglas is an exceptional attorney in every sense of the word. Professional, compassionate, honest, supportive and an outstanding example of integrity in its highest form. Douglas' expertise not only brought me forward in my workers compensation case but he also restored in me trust and faith in the legal system. I was injured at work and needed help with my case. While trying to navigate my way through the confusing world of workers compensation procedures, I was in pain, needed help, and lost hope. Then I soon realized that I had to stand up for myself but I wasn't able to do that on my own. I sought the best and that is exactly what I received when meeting with Douglas. He not only guided me through the process but he did so with genuine concern and care. He not only brought a positive, successful closure to my case but he also gave me what I needed the most--peace of mind. I highly recommend Douglas Williams.

It is very important that folks receive an honest and sincere opinion based on fact. I am a current client of Douglas Williams, and I can honestly say that Douglas is an exceptional professional and a true asset to the legal system and most importantly to his clients. The everyday person would certainly have difficulty trying to navigate their way through the legal system on their own, and having a true and honest professional to assist them is the key to the success in their case. Douglas assists his clients in all aspects of their case and not only is a success in the monetary sense but he also earns his clients trust and confidence from start to finish. A person can feel very small in the big world of the courts, judges, paperwork and confusing legal terminology. Douglas gives us a voice, within the legal system and he has his clients best interests in mind throughout the entire process.

I have been involved in a workers comp case for many years, a friend referred me to Mr. Williams since talking with Doug and e-mails I am now in a much better position to settle my case. Now I know why my friend spoke so highly of him. He helped me the most of any of the lawyers I've been with since my original injury in 1988. I found him to be extremely knowledgable and helpful. He explained things I didn't even know to ask so I would reccomend Doug Williams to anybody that needs the best work comp lawyer on the planet. Awesome, Top Shelf Super Kinda Guy doesn't even say enough. With Doug Williams help I am settling my case tomorrow thanks so much Doug.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Doug is the consumate professional. He is a take back to a time when lawyers had a positive image. He is one the most ethical colleagues I know. I could not more highly recommend him. He is excellent at his trade in workers compensation.
