TESTIMONIALS

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.

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.
