Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Timothy M. Quill

    I endorse Larry McDougal without reservation. We went to law school together, and have worked closely on joint matters, and in the family law arena we were on opposing sides a few times. Larry is as knowledgeable about the law as any lawyer I know. Several years ago when a family member needed representation and I felt too close to provide it, Larry stepped in and achieved a terrific result. There is no higher endorsement than asking a colleague to handle a legal matter for one's own family member. You can trust Larry, and rely on his sound judgment and advice.
