"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."
"Doug has been excellent. I have no complaints."
"One of the things you guys did very well was making sure I was kept informed of things. My case was about a year and there was a lot of time when nothing was happening. Doug was great about making sure I knew if something came up. You guys were really responsive and really great about that. There was a point where I was not very responsive because I was so busy with what I was doing - traveling in Australia and just busy. He kept following up with me to make sure that I did what I needed to do. A lot of attorneys would just send an email and that was that. He stayed on top of things. I really appreciated that."
"You guys responded really well and I like the results I got. I've actually already referred [Doug] and your firm."
"Doug took my case even when he was full and also supervising others. I've been appreciative that even though he is so busy he has made time for me. Doug is smart, aggressive, compassionate. Those are hard qualities to find in any one person. I'm pleased with the service. Thank you."
​ "Doug is awesome!  Doug is the man and who you would want to have in your corner."
"They were fantastic. I loved that he was honest and straight forward with what the situation will be. He gave me great counsel all the way through. He was clear about my rights and privileges. He represented me with a lot of honesty and integrity. His Paralegal was awesome and very professional as well. I am grateful for the representation. Mindy was incredible, professional, and nonjudgmental. You knew you could have a conversation with them, and it would be in all confidentiality." ​
