Doug Is Great!
Doug has handled several legal issues for me and several other issues for people that I've referred to him. I've always been satisfied, and so has everyone that I've sent to him. The easiest referral for Doug is sending him someone that hasn't filed a living will yet. Everyone needs one. Definitely do NOT hesitate to use Doug. If he can't help, he will refer you to someone that can!

Would hire again in a heartbeat!
Doug did a fantastic job in resolving a real estate situation we encountered. Our contractor was unable to complete the build our home but did not return our deposit. Doug fought for us and we were awarded every penny of our deposit plus legal fees! He returns phone calls personally and responds to emails quickly (usually the same day). We would definitely hire him again and have been referring friends to his office.

Administration of Estates/Successions
I am a CPA. I have worked with Doug to complete the probate process for several estates. Doug is the most efficient attorney I have had the privilege to work with in completing the probate process. He understands the administrative procedures and works diligently to expedite their completion. His understanding of the tax filling requirements for estates and trusts is one of the main reasons for his efficiency. He gets the necessary experts (appraisers, accountants etc.) involved early in the process to ensure timely filing of the tax returns required to complete the probate process.

Civil Case
Doug represents my family member who was assaulted. He has kept in touch and has let us know what we can expect in the future with the case. He is very easy to get in touch with and answers all our questions knowledgeably, keeping us informed. I have been very pleased with his services and highly recommend him to anyone needing representation!
