Doug assisted me with a ticket I received. The process could not have been any easier. He was able to get it quickly dismissed without me having to appear and the fee was VERY reasonable.

All I can say is he is the best and good at his work. He took care of my ticket easily when another team had let me down.

I consulted Mr. Portnoy about a speeding ticket that my son had got. I talked with Mr. Portnoy about the ticket, and he told me what we needed to do. I therfore asked Mr. Portnoy to handle my son's ticket, and Mr. Portnoy did just that. I didn't have to kiss work, and my son didn't have to miss school. I live in a different town from where my son goes to school, and it was a relief for me knowing that my son's ticket would be handled. This was my first time hiring a lawyer out of town, but Mr. Portnoy eased my mind, and made me feel confident that everything was going to be fine, and it was. Thanks to Mr. Portnoy there was no points and no increase in my insurance. I would certainly recommend Mr. Doug Portnoyfor anybody that needs a good lawyer. I will certaintly get Mr. Portney again in the future if I need a lawyer again. THANK YOU MR. PORTNOY!!!!

Doug did a fantastic job explaining everything thing to me, kept me informed the entire way, and got the results that were expected! A complete class act for a lawyer.

Doug worked with me on an out of state speeding ticket that I had already paid in GA, however didn't realize I had the potential if getting my NC license revoked. Doug helped me navigate through the process of the hearing to have my driving privlages stay intact. I live two hours from Raleigh and Doug took a hands on approach for me since I couldn't be in Raleigh. Doug kept me in the loop every step of the way.

Prior to going to Mr. Portnoy I received a ticket going 82 miles over in a 60, and previously had a 2 points on my driving license from 3 years ago. The day after I got my ticket I had lawyers that were sending me letters stating they could assist me with $200 or more . Immediately I contacted the lawyers and try to set a face to face conference with them, most of them did not agree to it and the closest one to my house was very rude and stated the only option is to take a PJC. I was going to hire them since but they were very rude, After a couple weeks, I decided to try to call others that I had seen on Google review just to see what other options I had. Still everyone was telling me they can assist me with $200 or more or I can just take the PJC. At the last minute I finally decided to call Mr. Douglas and although I was hesitant as to possibly hearing the same 2 options. Mr. Portnoy was positive that he would reduce my speed to 9 miles over and never did he mentioned the PJC. He assured me he would get the job done or even help me take online driving courses just to decrease the limit if it comes down to it. All I can say is He got the job done and was very friendly. The process was easy and He works hard to defend you and has your back. When He says He's going to do something He does it and gets the job done and that matters. If you got a speeding ticket YOU NEED TO HIRE HIM. I WILL RECOMMEND HIM TO ALL MY ASSOCIATES.

Douglas is an amazing attorney who got a PJC for a case where I could have easily lost my license. Rather than focus on my experience I will tell you why you should hire him:
1) He has over 25 years of experience. He knows the people and he knows the system. This goes a long way in getting the best outcome for your case!
2) He is smart and knows what he is doing: I called 10 lawyers or more to find out what I needed to do to get the best outcome for my case. Douglas told me to attend defensive driving classes and to get community service hours before my first scheduled court date. No other lawyer recommended this and given that I got a PJC on a case where the odds were slim to none I would say trust him and do what he says to get the best outcome.
3) He is honest: Going into my case he told me my license was at stake and never sugarcoated anything. This was hard to hear but in the end I would say it is better to hire someone who tells you the harsh truth but gets the best outcome for you rather than hire someone who tells you that everything will be okay and gives you the worst outcome.
For the reasons above if you are hesitating to contact Douglas I will say do not because he is the right person for your tough case whatever it may be.

After receiving a speeding ticket for going over 11 miles in a 45 speed zone in Raleigh. I knew that this was serious and could cause long term negative problems. After asking friends for recommendations I found Doug on the internet. I was quite nervous about hiring an attorney from the internet. But, after reading his excellent client reviews and speaking with him I knew I was making the best decision. Doug was informative with how he would handle my case and the probable outcome. So, I was extremely happy when he called me after my court hearing and EVERYTHING went as he had discussed. If you find yourself needing an experience attorney you could do no better than hiring Doug Portnoy.
