Great dude!
I had injured my back and through the whole 3 year process his office was easy to talk to they kept me in the loop as far as what was going on or if they needed anything from me. He was very thorough when he explained my case and just an all around great guy to work with!!!
Response from Douglas Ross May 19, 2022
Thank you for your recommendation, Kodi. I strive to make sure my clients understand not just the broad elements of liability and damages, but the fact-specific strengths and weaknesses of their case so they can make an informed decision about how to proceed. I'm glad you were pleased with my service.

Personal injury Attorney | Mar 16
Relationship: Co-worker
"Doug is one of my fellow attorneys at Hupy and Abraham, but before he joined us I had a case or two against him when he was a trial attorney with American Family Insurance in their Wausau office. You learn the most about another lawyer when you face them in litigation. He was a worthy adversary and a someone who really knows personal injury. He made such a good impression that I urged the Partners to bring him onboard when they opened our Wausau office. After meeting him and talking to other attorneys in Wausau, they agreed wholeheartedly. He is a skilled and experienced trial attorney with the respect of the entire legal community in Northern Wisconsin and beyond. Never underestimate the effect of your attorney being known and respected by the rest of the legal community. It is not easy to earn that respect, and it is a great indicator of an attorney's abilities. And that can have a real positive impact on your case. Doug will get you what you deserve, you can count on that"
