“Doug Anderson did fantastic.  I appreciate all of his help. … “


“… We’ve formed a friendly relationship that’s far better than just client-attorney. He’s a very personable person and very easy to talk to. He’s been thoughtful in all his responses and has done a very good job. He’s very informative, especially with the custody evaluation process. He’s done a really good job. You guys are a firm that’s easy to communicate with, and I appreciate the way you handle men’s rights. You are a personal-type firm and do a really good job . This was a much better experience than my first divorce.”


“Doug and [his Administrative Assistant] have done an outstanding job for me. This has been an extremely trying time for me. Doug’s confidence and knowledge proved invaluable.  Without his guidance I would have fared poorly. … I may very well need a bit more help from Doug.


“Anytime anything is needed I’m always made aware.  Their communication is top notch. I’m absolutely pleased with the customer service at the law office.  Their communication, the follow up, [and] the timeliness is excellent.  Anything I need from Doug and [his Administrative Assistant] is always handled professionally and immediately.”
