Very professional, attentive, and thorough...highly recommend him
I have the utmost respect for Douglas Belofsky. He took over when I had a problem with a former attorney. I found him to be extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. Above all, he gave me his utmost attention which I greatly appreciated. He is an excellent attorney and I highly recommend him.

I am a small business owner and I recently hired Mr. Belofsky to help me challenge a dishonest and unfair online review of my business. He responded to my initial request quickly via phone. Upon our initial in person consultation, he was professional and thoughtful. He had a very calm demeanor when dealing with something that was very upsetting to me, and clearly brought many years of high-level expertise to the process. My complaint was resolved in a timely manner, my reputation has been restored and I am happy to put this situation behind me. Mr. Belofsky's rates are very reasonable and it was money well spent. I would not hesitate to contact him in the future.
