My case was a DUI case and attorney Douglas Gardner handled my case very professionally, though I agree that he was late few times due to being caught in the other city court house, he was very skilled and proficient once he started talking and arguing my case.
He did not agree with the prosecutor on the sentencing and the hearing was turned over into a mini trial.
As expected he was very forceful with his questioning and very professional, I would highly recommend him and give him 5 star for being a knowledgeable and dynamic attorney.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Douglas and I worked together on a three strikes re-sentencing case. Our client had previously been sentenced to life in prison, and both Doug and I worked to have that sentenced reduced to credit for time served. I was very impressed with Mr. Gardner's legal knowledge, his prompt attention to detail, and his warm personality. He experience is apparent, and it was a pleasure working with him. I highly recommend Doug for all criminal types of cases in the Shasta County Area.
