TESTIMONIALS

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.

Very ethical, helpful, and knowledgeable of the law. Mr Smith helped me with a personal injury case after an automobile accident. I didn't want to gouge the other person, but Mr Smith was able to help me gather all the documentation I needed to get what was most due to me by law. His knowledge of the law and how these negotiations work, helped me minimize the amount of time I had to spend while maximizing the outcome. Definitely worth it.
