Excellent Attorney
Mr. Maynard and his staff helped us navigate a complex, more than decade long, Workers compensation case. Without his expertise myself and my family would have been at a loss. Thanks to him the case case been resolved and we can move forward with our lives. He often takes the time to respond personally and seems to truly care.

Excellent representation and result
While riding my motorcycle in Asheville North Carolina I was struck and severely injured by a drunk driver who had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit. Being a Delaware resident and not familiar with any firm in the area I was referred to Doug by my attorney in Christiana Delaware. Doug was able to secure a very successful settlement for me. I cannot say enough good things about Doug and his wonderful staff who worked very hard for my benefit.

Special Thanks!
I would like to Thank Attorney Douglas Maynard and Staff for being so Thorough, Professional, Compassionate, and Dedicated to my auto accident case. It was a complicated case but Attorney Maynard worked very hard until they got me the best settlement possible. I was so glad that he was referred to me. If you are ever a victim of a accident, this is the form you want fighting for you. Attorney Maynard was there for me every step of the way and there was never a time that I called that he did not answer. He just doesn't take your case, but he actually cares. Thank you so much Attorney Maynard and Staff for helping me get my life back despite the opposition. Sincere Thanks, Kimberly F.

Great Experience
My experience was excellent. The claim involved Workers Comp, as well as Personal Injury which made the case somewhat complicated. Mr Maynard, along with his staff kept me informed and answered my questions promptly. Unlike many other attorneys, this Practice was always easy to communicate with.

Provided exceptional and cliented centered services
Attorney Maynard and staff provided exceptional services in assisting me with my medical claims and compensation. I recalled the Sunday afternoon when Attorney Maynard responded to my email alertness for help. After consulting with him, his attentiveness to my concerns, I felt that he listened and understood from client perspective. As a client, one will be well informed and a part of the decision-making in the final resolution. Thank you for your support and professionalism.

Very helpful
Doug Maynard was really offended by a friend. I was absolutely clueless about what I should do after an car accident landed me in the hospital. Mr. Maynard helped me greatly and did not take advantage of my ignorance. He stuck with me through my complications.

Car Accident
Mr. Maynard came very highly recommended by a family friend who is also a retired attorney. I was very comfortable during our initial meeting and it was evident that he was genuinely concerned about my plight and the details of my prospective case. Once I retained him to represent me, he and his staff were very thorough and worked very diligently to obtain all of the evidence, including contacting an expert, to further our cause toward a successful outcome. Mr. Maynard prepped me for my deposition in a very positive and calming manner which put me at ease. He and his staff remained very professional and kept me apprised throughout the long and arduous process. I would recommend Mr. Maynard without hesitation.

Thorough, calm, and efficient!
Doug represented me in a Worker's Compensation case. He is so calm and efficient that all of my stress went away as soon as I retained him. His personality meshed very well with my husband's and mine, which made everything easier for us. Throughout the process, I always felt like he was making sure my interests were protected. And he made sure I knew well in advance how things would progress. And, in fact, the final results were almost exactly what he told us they would be. My husband and I have already recommended him, and we will continue to do so in the future.

Wrongful Death
Competent, Knowledgeable, Compassionate and most importantly Available. Treated each issue and/or question with respect and proper interest. Always made time for conferences as needed and never had to chase him or his staff for responses which were always timely. Outcome was reasonable for the circumstances. I would not hesitate to engage his services again.
