Excellent, trustworthy representation
Mr. Barrett (Doug) has helped us through all of our past and current paperwork and official bankruptcy meetings. He is a professional who understands the law involved and communicates in an understandable way what we've needed to do in order to prepare for each step of the process. My wife and I highly recommend him as an excellent, trustworthy lawyer.

Awesome attorney
Doug is an awesome attorney because he understands what I was going through when I filed my chapter 13 bankruptcy. He has a lot of compassion and is always there for you. After the initial consultation my worries were put to ease.

He was kind and helpful.
I was in a financial mess and didn't know where to turn. I looked for help on the internet and contacted several lawyers. Douglas was the first one to get back to me and we set up an appointment to discuss my case. I was an emotional mess due to unfiled taxes and phone calls from everyone I owed money. He was kind and patient and said we could get this taken care of quickly. He referred me to someone for my taxes and helped me take care of that matter as well as the bankruptcy itself. He has always been professional and answered questions as needed. I am so glad he contacted me so quickly. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is having financial difficulties and doesn't know where to turn. He will steer you in the right direction.

Great Attorney!
We were about to lose our house before we met Doug. He took the time to explained the bankruptcy process and made it so much less complex than anyone else. Our chapter 13 case was able to help us avoid the foreclosure on our home. We would most definitely recommend Douglas Barrett to anyone needing bankruptcy help.

Very Helpful
We had a good experience. He took time to explain everything to us so there were no surprises. We would recommend his services.
