BEST IN THE BUSINESS
Upon hiring Doug I had no clue that the case would take such a hardship on my family. We endured so many legal battles and attorneys from the other side that were so challenging mentally. Doug walked us through every step of the way, he supported my daughter like she was his own, he made sure we understood everything clearly and his patience with me when I was so angry was top notch. I will ONLY use Doug in the future and highly recommend him to everyone.

My first time hiring an attorney
Doug Levinson is an attorney who can be trusted without hesitation. My first experience hiring an attorney was a learning experience and an eye opener. Doug took the time to explain each step of the way. He also showed a great deal of compassion in that he always put my accident recovery and well being first. Thanks to Doug for a job well done. I don't hesitate to refer friends and co-workers to him. I always feel confident that Doug will give honest, professional advice.

Douglas Levinson Review
We are very pleased with Mr Levinson and all the work he has put into our case.He formed his case and went at it.Kept us up dated just about every week. we answered all his questions and when he felt he had enough information he ran with it. Doug Levinson went after what he new he could get for us and he would have pushed even more but we felt it was time to settle he agreed. He is a very good lawyer.

Extremely trustworthy
Doug gave me advice to guide me through a frustrating issue that could have led to a headache filled civil litigation. Instead, Doug provided extremely helpful and intelligent advice as to how I could solve the issue with a path of least resistance. Thank you Doug.

Don't add insult to injury, get the best Injury lawyer to ease your aches and pains!
After my accident, Mr. Levinson helped me through a very difficult recovery. He made an extremely difficult situation as smooth as possible. He dealt with the insurance companies as well as the medical providers so that I could just focus on my recovery and getting better. He was so knowledgeable, and was a complete pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone!

Look no further
Mr. Levinson is an amazing attorney! I wasn't going to hire an attorney after someone rear ended me, but when my own insurance was just as non-responsive as the at-fault driver's insurance, I had no choice. I'm so glad I hired Doug and I'd do it again in a heartbeat! I definitely wouldn't have made it through the insurance maze after my accident if it weren't for him. He is extremely knowledgeable, straight forward and tells it like it is. He was honest with me and kept me informed every step of the way. Even though my case seemed never-ending with many twists and turns, he never dropped the ball. I hope that I'm never in another accident, but if I am, I'm hiring Doug Levinson.

Persistent
Doug represented me after I was hit by an automobile driver while on my bike. First and foremost, Doug obtained a fair settlement for my injuries. He was prepared to take my case to trial, which I believe ultimately helped me receive a legitimate settlement offer from the driver's insurance company. Almost as important, he kept me informed by taking the time to clearly explain my options at each step of the legal process in language I could understand. I will strongly recommend Doug to family and friends if they are ever hurt and need a lawyer.

Great experience!
Mr. Levinson was a pleasure to work with. Always accessible, always one step ahead of the case. His thorough, no nonsense approach was just what I needed. He definitely went the extra mile to get the best possible outcome. Just when it looked like we might not get the result we wanted he found a way to make it happen.
