Professional Comprehensive Services for Beginner Real Estate Investment Company
Greatly appreciate the services and excellent advice from Doug Kiger to us. We sought Doug Kiger for general advice as we started out and found ourselves hiring him for several key tools to help us get started. We are starting out with our first project and have been able to immediately use the business tools prepared for us as well as the training and explanations. We consider him our attorney.

Extremely professional, honest and fair
Since I moved to the Tacoma area in 2011, Doug Kiger has helped me with a variety of matters, including: real estate remodeling contract problems; real estate purchase contract reviews; suing for fraud related to a personal loan agreement; and also rewriting my Will. He is very bright and competent, also possessing delightful measures of modesty and good humor. He has advised me well on numerous occasions, even when recommending that I not pursue a path I was considering. I could not be more pleased with his assistance, and the other people in his office are also very helpful and friendly. I feel lucky to be represented by Doug Kiger, an attorney with very high integrity.

A very good lawyer
An experienced attorney that listened attentively and was expedient in resolving a festering dispute with an HOA. The very best in representing my interests, I am confident he serves all his clients with the same commitment and sincerity.

Inquiry
I've been reaching out to lawyers for many matters I've been placed in. Douglas Kiger was one of the few to respond and quickly allowing me to gain the information that was questionable, with closure. He seems outgoing and I'd be pleased to experience more interaction with.

Easement
Doug was absolutely fantastic and brought a sense of calm to a situation I was not familiar with on what direction to take. Doug kept an open line of communication and reinforced ensuring we had the right verification steps in place prior to moving into the settlement phase. During this case, Doug even referred me to a 3rd party to verify the work down protected all parties from future litigation. Very professional and easy to work with. You will definitely have a great attorney on your side with Doug; and someone who isn't out to rack up fees. Highly recommend!

Great experience with Attorney Doug Kiger
We contacted Mr. Kiger to write new wills for us. He was very thorough, knowledgeable and professional. Mr. Kiger made sure we included other things we needed as well such as new Power of Attorneys and Medical Directives. He also gave us other valuable information and explained all the details. His staff is very responsive and friendly answering emails and calls promptly. Thank you Mr. Kiger and staff for a very positive experience and your personal care.

Excellent
Mr. Kiger listened, asked questions, and was thorough in helping us create our will. He was professional, but kind and showed understanding. The front desk person, Kathleen, was very helpful too. I’ve already referred someone to him!

Doug Kiger made the Estate Document process easy and understandable
My spouse and I had put off updating our estate documents for way too long. Once we had an introductory meeting with Doug Kiger we knew we had found someone that would help us accomplish the task and give us sound legal advice. Also Doug was always responsive and timely to our questions and concerns. We are already consulting with him on some other family issues and would recommend him to others.

Exceeds expectations
From our initial consultation about two years ago to successfully closing our lawsuit, Douglas Kiger was reliable for every step of the way. His integrity to his clients is matched by his years of experience and professionalism; a true expert in his field. We are both thankful and relieved to have had him on our team. For any and all future legal services, we will absolutely contact him again. Thank you Doug and team for your diligent and excellent work—we could not have won the case without you.

litigation to receive funds
I had a customer who was sent to prison. I had a deed of trust for 1st to be paid when the property was seized by the government and also to prove I knew nothing about his involvement which led to the seizure of property. Doug did a good job on my behalf and was paid in full.
