I was lost during my divorce case. Douglas has a high knowledge base in family welfare and rights which correspond in a divorce case. Douglas took his time to finalize my divorce with success. Through his aggressive negotiations with my husband's attorney, he got me all the benefits he sought. I recommend Douglas in divorce cases one hundred percent.

I emailed the Law office of Douglas C. Smith. Almost immediately Mr. Smith returned my call. He spoke with me on a very professional yet friendly tone. He gave me a free consultation over the phone. He listened to my concerns and gave me excellent advice. He helped me save thousands of dollars. I have had terrible experiences with a couple of attorneys in the past. I am glad I was able to find an honest and knowledgeable attorney. I am extremely satisfied with his services. Highly recommended. Thank you Mr. Smith.
