Class A CDL traffic ticket dismissal
I have had two accident tickets with a CDL class A licence and in both times Douglas team have had ticket dismissals. Its important to me to have a clear driving record and going to Attorney Douglas Adkinson was the best thing I can do. They truly take care of you.

Review
I do not regret my decision in hiring Douglas Atkinson as my lawyer. I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome of my case. He got my case completely dismissed. I’m very thankful for all his hard work and dedication.

My experience with Doug Atkinson
I'm writing this review on my own accord Not because I was asked to but because I feel it's necessary for people to find a good attorney or stay away from bad ones. God knows my family and I have experienced both but as for this one ( Doug ), I can't say enough about him or the results he gets. Mind you, he's super busy and it was frustrating at times, but regardless, he took care of the case and got better results than I feel any attorney could have possibly gotten. He was thorough, his price was fair, he's super professional and he knows Texas law in and out. It's important to know however, that in Montgomery County, it's as much as who you know as what you know. Doug is very connected in what I consider one of the toughest counties in the state, if not the country. One where the good ole' boy and wild west reputations definitely do exist. Trust me, I've seen and heard horror stories about MANY of the lawyers and law enforcement. So God forbid you get arrested or if you have charges against you, especially in Montgomery County, this is your guy. He's the one you want when it comes to defending you and getting the best possible results.

Silvia was a huge help. Highly recommend.
After trying to get an occupational license with several prior attorney's i reached out to Silvia to see if they could help. Within a week i was approved and now have my license. Not only was she very prompt with her work she also walked me through everything i needed to do on my end to help the process. Hopefully i never need another attorney but if i do they will definitely be the one to call. Highly recommend.

Amazing
Doug is the big brother that I never had. I was in a very difficult situation, facing a legal system that is not familiar to me, as I was born and raised in a different country. The issue I faced was extreme and career ending and would have ended my life as I know it now. I fell apart during this biggest trial of my life, coming close to taking my own life twice. I genuinely did not see a way out of this legal situation. Doug was there as a big brother who helped me, and my wife navigate the intricacies of the legal system and provided us personal advice which saved both our lives as we know them now, as well as our marriage. He spent countless hours listening to our concerns and fears and treated us with respect, believing in us and his skills, and continuously responding to my concerns with actions that improved my case outcome. He also invested a lot of his time sharing his personal experiences, which helped me to grow my character to overcome this trial. The outcome was an absolute dismissal of the case. I am forever grateful to you, Doug, for your time and coaching. Shannon is another angel in that office. Her expertise and patience are unparalleled. She makes things happen and she is composed and level-headed. It is the team that you can have on your side. No matter what the issue is, know that they will have your best interest in their hearts.

Best Criminal Defense Lawyer!!!
Douglas Atkinson was amazing! There are not enough stars to award him with in the reviews. He fought harder for my husband, for our family, harder than I ever imagined anyone would. He fought and never backed down. The challenges that were thrown in our direction he threw them right back and prevailed. I cannot thank him and his team enough for all of the hours put in to this case that was prepared for for almost three years. This was a very challenging case but that did not stop the determination and fight that he gave for my husband and for our family to be able to leave together. Thank- you so much Doug, from the bottom of all of our hearts.

Down And Out Of Luck
Being up against the wall and backed into a corner feeling hopeless until this man and his team of professionals were recommended to me by a few acquaintances. All saying, "I'm crazy if I have anyone else represent me!" That they had hired and or someone they knew hired Mr. Doug Atkinson and were very happy with their outcome. I must confess hands down he and his team are the go-to Law Firm around! Mr. Doug Atkinson was able to work with the prosecutor in finding a fair solution and got my case dismissed. I'm very grateful he stood up for me and I couldn't ask for a better outcome. Thank you so much I'm still pumped I chose him, and you will be too! Thank You for Everything Mr. Doug!

Excellent Choice
I was in my opinion falsely arrested, and I went to Doug for help. The process took while because of Covid, but my name was cleared and my record expunged. All due to Doug’s hard work and his team worked together to help me. He is easy to reach and talk to, and made himself available when I had questions and concerns. I recommend him and would use him again. (But let’s hope that is never necessary again)

misdemeanor-B charges dismissed
I am thankful to god to have Attorney Douglas and his team of professionals to work on my case. I cannot thank Mr. Douglas and his team enough for his hard work and commitment to my case. He is a very professional from start to finish of my case. He has a down to earth personality. I was facing misdemeanor-B charges but with Mr. Doug's depth knowledge and hard work he was able to get the charges completely dismissed. I will highly recommend Attorney Douglas and his professional team for any legal issues. Thank you very much Mr. Douglas and your team.

Excellent
After facing a charge that seemed like the end for me, Doug not only assured me and my family that they would work hard to get the best outcome, but he delivered on that promise. My case is now dismissed and moving onto an expunction. I will never regret my decision to hire Doug and his team.

Best defense attorney hands down.
By far the best defense attorney. Promises what he says and delivers. Even sets up a payment plan for you. I was in Dallas County and he represented me in Montgomery County.

"Doug Atkinson is the go to criminal defense lawyer in Montgomery County, and elsewhere. Doug is one of the hardest working and caring lawyers I know. His passion and tireless defense has led to outstanding results for his clients that very few lawyers are able to obtain. I have co-counseled cases with Doug on many occasions and have always been impressed with his legal acumen, well thought out strategy, and determination to work through difficult legal issues. Doug is a consummate professional, and always honest and straight forward in his approach. It's rare when judges, district attorneys, and the defense bar all agree on one thing--and they all recognize that Doug Atkinson is a fantastic criminal defense lawyer!"
