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.

Criminal misdemeanor charge
Doug was highly respected in the courtroom. He and his team were efficient, knowledgeable and professional. He got my case dismissed and now working on expungement. I am forever grateful. He saved my career and livelihood.

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)

Doug and his team did everything in their power to make sure I received the outcome I was looking for. They were always very helpful and also very informative, making sure I was always in the loop with what was going on and what to expect next. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a great attorney!

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.

Montgomery county is a tough county. If you need a guy that knows how to deal in that place, Doug is your man. Simply the best.

I hope someone reads this review as this attorney and his staff are 10 star!
Doug Atkinson and his staff deserve a 10 star but unfortunately five was as many as I the system allowed. This fine man and his team brought justice to me and I will forever be in his debt. Doug Atkinson is a very intelligent caring professional that I only hopped I would find. He made solid decissions which allowed me to obtain the best possible outcome and I want to STRONGLY suggest you allow him to do the same for you. You owe it to yourself. If I could only find one word to describe Doug and his team it would be "great"! Gob bless, Actual Client!

Professional, Honest, Determined
I hired Doug as my attorney because he was personable, was straight forward with what I could expect for an outcome of my case and was very professional. As the case went on, Doug and his staff were always friendly, answered my questions and kept me up to date with the latest developments in my case. Once all the evidence was out, Doug told me he was confident he was going to be able to get my case dismissed. Which is exactly what he did! I met with several other attorneys before deciding to hire Doug. The other attorneys seemed like good, even great attorneys, but with my record and livelihood on the line, I wanted the best. Doug Atkinson proved to me that I chose the best and I would recommend him to anyone that needs his services.

Got my case dismissed.
Mr. Atkinson is the best lawyer in Montgomery County by far. If you're in a situation, hes the man to go to. He got my case dismissed and I never had to go to court. I was faced with a 3rd degree felony, strangulation. I'm so glad I went with him. I went to 6 or 7 other lawyers for a free consultation before I met him. They all acted like I was a POS. This man spoke to me with dignity and respect. To be honest, he reminded me of what a bad ass TV lawyer looks and talks like. I felt confident leaving his office that I was in good hands and knew I was going choose him. Hes well respected and liked by the courts and judges and DA. Helps a lot. They know he knows his stuff and a case involving him won't be a cake walk.

Best possible outcome
We hired Doug Atkinson and his team to represent a family member who was arrested for DWI. It was not an easy case for him or us because of past similar incidents and an incriminating video of the arrest. The journey to the outcome was not easy but we completed Doug's process and followed his instructions which resulted in the very best case scenario. We were very happy with his team, their approach and the results.

Best lawyer!
Douglas Atkinson is by far the best lawyer that I've ever had. He cares about his clients and he shows it. He was the most genuine lawyer that I've met out of all the lawyers that I've had throughout my past while dealing with the legal system. He's traveled out of the county for my case numerous times, all the way to the point where he ended up getting my felony charges dismissed. He wasn't just about getting his money and putting me off like other lawyers have been in my past, he really actually cared and did the work he said he was going to do. I really mean it when I say if you hire Douglas Atkinson, you're more than likely going to like the outcome of your court case.

"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!"
