Doug is no nonsense, experienced attorney that I would recommend to anyone anticipating a difficult custody case. He is honest, hardworking, compassionate, and diligent at getting the best results for his clients. Custody cases are painful enough and anxiety over the future is very consuming. The burden of it all is reduced knowing you have top notch representation. I can not thank him and his associate Anthony for getting what was best for my 19month old .

I'm a highly educated individual, whose ex-husband (father of my child) only had custody because he was a millionaire whereas I was still in graduate school, getting my Ph.D. and the plan was for me to take over when I was done with school and had a stable income. Also, he cheated on me, repeatedly, and left me for a woman with whom he'd been planning (for a year) to leave me for her. I did not know this until later, but it was particularly disturbing since this woman had been a family friend and, thus, around my child from since he was a toddler. So, as soon as I was gone, she entered the picture, and this was very confusing and disturbing to my child. Nevertheless, when I realized the situation, after we'd legally separated and set out a plan (where he was primary legal custodian), it was quite difficult for me to attain primary legal custody because a) he had substantially more money than me and b) I had pre-existing medical conditions that, despite me having the entire duration of our marriage and family, and it never interfering, my ex used this against me during the case.
Rather than Douglas Fox defending me in the appropriate way, he demeaned me... scolded me, in fact, and treated me like a completely worthless individual. NOTE: He was friendly and kind until the DAY before we had mediation, at which point I suppose he found time to actually review and process my case, after which he shamed me on many levels and, throughout mediation, continually berated me for "taking too long" and having to catch a flight back home, several states away, despite him knowing my residential situation. He put unnecessary strain and stress on me throughout the mediation, and I would never recommend him to any other parent seeking a fair trial. The only decent and competent part of my experience with this person was his paralegal, Katherine. She is amazing, timely, and cordial. Nevertheless, I do NOT recommend Douglas Fox as a lawyer in this capacity, and I feel sorry and sad for any other clients he may have ridiculed and humiliated, even on a person, one-to-one level, and yet have not come forward. Because I highly doubt that I'm the only one.

I highly recommend Attorney Douglas Fox who recently handled a complicated family law matter for me. The case was complicated by long-distance technical consultations, complex federal entitlement law and by parties residing in different states.
Despite these challenges, his legal expertise and ethical approach to litigation kept us on the best glide path in approaching my case. His preparation was key to the successful conclusion of my legal matters. This attorney was really familiar with all the facets of my case. Many law firms just don’t have the time to spend on individual clients. Attorney Fox made himself available throughout the course of our case to included direct access by email and cell phone. In addition, his office staff were able address many common issues on the spot. His fees are extremely fair. I can’t emphasize this enough; I clearly had the best attorney on my side during our legal wrangling. Whether you arbitrate, go to court or settle, you cannot get a better combination of experience and knowledge than when you are represented by Attorney Douglas Fox.
I would definitely engage Attorney Douglas Fox again and I recommend him with our reservation.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Doug for over 20 years and he has always been very intense. He takes his cases very seriously and really devotes the time and energy needed to succeed in a case, no matter the difficulties the case may present. I like his aggressiveness and tenacity. If I had an issue in Georgia, I would turn to Doug and rest assured that I was in good hands.
