I trusted Doug to help someone very special
My son, daughter-in-law, and my granddaughter were in an accident about twelve years ago. My granddaughter sustained two broken legs in the accident. Being an attorney myself I knew there was only one attorney that I was going to trust to protect my granddaughter's interests and that was Douglas Bare. Even though the accident occurred south of Erie, PA Doug did a terrific job for my family from his office in York. My granddaughter is now going into the tenth grade and in perfect health. Thanks to Doug she has a little nest egg to head off to college with in a few years.
