Vogel was helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and thorough.
After meeting with Doug Vogel, we left his office with a better understanding of Alabama law and with confidence for our future. He patiently and professionally answered all of our questions. He personally reviewed the estate planning documents with us to make sure they accurately met our needs and reflected our wishes. We are completely satisfied with the work he has done for us and will definitely seek his counsel again.

An family estate lawyer to our rescue!
Doug helped our family 10 years ago with my husband's parents' estate and trust accounts. Both parents were later diagnosed with Dementia, and so timing was very important to take care of everything. He is a life saver with all this. Now my husband's father has passed and his mother is still with us, but we are preparing for her to go into the nursing home, and it's so comforting to know the estate is secure through Doug's help.

Great Lawyer!
I highly recommend Doug Vogel if you are searching for an attorney! Doug has been helping me take care of my parents' affairs for over five years. My close friend referred me to him because he has done an excellent job of estate planning for her, and I am very glad I hired him! His expert knowledge of eldercare law has enabled me to make sure my parents were getting all the VA benefits to which they were entitled. Doug also prepared my parents' wills and made sure everything was done properly. Doug always fills out the many confusing forms that come with taking care of elderly parents. Anytime I have a question, Doug is happy to listen to me and answer my questions thoroughly. Doug is very patient, and my parents like him, too. I had friends tell me how hard it was for them to try to take care of their elderly parents without legal help, but it has been a blessing to have Doug Vogel doing all of that work for me. Be sure to give him a call!
