Giving Our Clients the Time They Need
At Douglas Law Firm, we are focused on quality, not quantity. We are not looking to handle as many cases as we possibly can; rather, we are focused on giving each case the time and attention necessary to achieve success.
We will carefully explain the steps in your case, the range of possible outcomes, and what we can do to deliver the results our clients want. Our attorneys are flexible and accessible and can meet with you in your home or at your business if that is more convenient for you. You will work directly with our lawyers and can count on receiving personal attention each step of the way.
A Supportive & Compassionate Florida Legal Team
We Are Here to Support Your Family
Whether you are going through a divorce or sorting out related issues of alimony and child custody; family law cases can be stressful and difficult situations for everyone involved.
Our firm is committed to helping the people we represent resolve these matters in a collaborative and mutually respectful manner whenever possible. We have learned over decades of legal practice that these cases are most effectively tackled through negotiated agreement by spouses and parents. We also use mediation and other alternatives to litigate in some cases.
Our lawyers also know that some of these cases can be contentious and require a judge to weigh in. That is why we work diligently to protect our clients’ rights throughout the process.
We Are Here to Defend & Protect
Criminal charges are serious matters that must be handled proactively, whether it is driving under the influence, a property theft accusation, or a felony drug case. A conviction can have significant, life-altering consequences both for the person charged with the crime and his or her family.
At Douglas Law Firm, we aggressively defend clients as early as possible in the process including before charges have even been filed in some cases. We are seasoned criminal defense lawyers who understand how police and prosecutors often approach these cases and know how to build the strongest possible defense for the clients we represent.
We are Here to Help You Heal After a Personal Injury Accident
We represent people injured in a full range of accidents, from a slip and fall in a slick grocery store aisle to a multi-vehicle pileup on a busy highway.
Our experience and success in these cases give clients the confidence to focus on their physical recuperation after an accident, knowing that we are working diligently to get them the money they deserve. We have a strong track record of going up against big insurance companies to ensure our clients are fully compensated for their injuries.
We are Here to Safeguard Your Future
Our firm helps our neighbors in the community utilize a variety of estate planning tools to make decisions about their future. From Trusts and Wills to Probate and Durable Power of Attorney, we handle all things related to estate planning in Florida.
That includes making decisions involving health care directives and other related health decisions now so that you can have the confidence that comes with knowing that a plan is in place if needed. We also assist clients in determining where their assets will go in the event of their death to ensure that decision is not left up to a judge.
