  • Thomas Wormouth Shumate IV

    I have known Doug Janney for many years and have been on the other side of one or more cases with him. Doug is everything an attorney should be. He's smart, knowledgeable, ethical, and very skilled at what he does. Although he zealously represents his clients' interests, he is also reasonable and easy to work with, which facilitates better outcomes for his clients. I regularly refer clients to Doug and wholeheartedly endorse him.
