I am an insurance professional in the auto insurance arena. I have worked with Mr. Degrave for more than 10 years in conjunction with my past and current employers. Mr. Degrave and his firm have provided exceptional litigation defense work on more than 50 cases that I have assigned to his firm. Mr. Degrave is detailed and thorough on his case analysis, recommendations for the discovery process and in evaluation of case damages and settlement recommendations/potential jury verdicts. I would highly recommend Mr. Degrave and his firm.

As a claim examiner and claim manager I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. DeGrave since 1984.
Mr. DeGrave has demonstrated a superior knowledge of tort law and how it applies to liability claims. He has the ability to identify and focus on the important issues and provide a realistic evaluation.
Mr. DeGrave is an excellent trial attorney who also understands the costs associated with trials. He identifies which cases should be settled and which cases should be tried to verdict. He works diligently to bring a file to a proper conclusion.
In my experience working with Mr. DeGrave, I have found him to be honest and forthright. He enjoys a well deserved good reputation in the industry.

Doug has a reputation as one of the best trial lawyers in southern California. He is ethical, smart, hard working, and provides his clients incredible value. It's no wonder he was recently the OC-ABOTA trial lawyer of the year and has the honor of serving as the Cal-ABOTA president. Doug gets excellent results in cases ranging from car accidents to insurance bad faith to business litigation. I highly recommend him.
