I hired Doug to handle my divorce. I was always able to reach Doug as he provided me with his cell phone number. It was very comforting to know that he was always personally available. Most importantly, we went to trial and the outcome could not have been better. I was able to retain all of my retirement assets and not pay alimony. If you want an attorney that you work with from start to finish and is available then Doug is the person.

I tired Doug Roy to represent me in my contested divorce. I made it very clear to him that my number one goal was to get custody of my children because I had serious safety concerns if my wife got custody. I told Mr Roy several facts that supported my opinion. At the beginning he led me to believe that he was fighting hard for me by telling me he had filed a subpoena for important records that would prove that my wife should not get custody. Months later there was a temporary custody hearing because my wife's attorney had asked for temp custody. Mr Roy did not prepare me for the hearing, at the hearing he did not have the records and did not offer any important evidence that supported my need for custody. I lost the temporary custody hearing. Mr Roy then suddenly withdrew from my case , right after I made a payment and left me without a lawyer right before the next important hearing. I found out later that Mr Roy mishandled my case in several ways. He did not do what was necessary to get any important records. It appears that no subpoenas were even served by him while he was on my case. He never got the records but misled me into thinking he did. Mr Roy did not file a notice of appearance or an answer in my case until my wife's lawyer filed for default judgment. He only filed for temporary custody after my wife's lawyer asked for custody. Even though I I asked him about what he needed to respond to my wife's discovery requests, and I attempted to provide information. Mr Roy failed to file important discovery responses in my case . by law this type of discovery required by the judge to treat all my wife's discovery allegations as being true if I did not answer. Mr Roy failed to give me important documents that were filed in my case or explain them to me. Basically Mr Roy took my money and did nothing that actually helped my case. He was all smoke and mirrors. He took advantage of my lack of knowledge of the legal system. He did not care about my family at all.... ( by the way my current lawyer worked very hard for me and now I have custody of my children. )

Mr. Roy did an excellent job on my divorce. I wanted something quick, easy, and reasonably priced, and he gave that to me. If you are looking for an uncontested divorce, Doug Roy is your man!
