      I was referred to Doug and the firm he works for after a bad experience with a previous firm, and could not have made a better decision. Doug works on a first name basis and is genuinely there to be the voice for his client. He never pressured me or tried to persuade me in anyway, which is why I left the previous firm. Doug went all the way to trial with me, and fought for me when no one else would. I appreciate all he did for me and could never thank him enough. Read less
