Attorney Douglas was very helpful and professional. I was referred to him by my friend and he was able to meet with me on a timely manner to take care of my divorce. He took my information and was able to process the paperwork needed to start the process. He was patient and very responsive. When I called regarding a question, he would call me back in a timely manner. He was very professional and organized. He was located close to home and was accommodating with my schedule.
High quality, professional legal counsel
Doug is a highly skilled and effective legal advocate. He has a thorough knowledge of statutory and case law and employs that knowledge to obtain the best outcome for his clients. At the same time, Doug is an effective negotiator. He knows that sometimes better outcomes are obtained through negotiation rather than litigation. He guides his clients through the full range of possible outcomes and advises on strategy. I've been extremely satisfied with his counsel.
Legal advice and support that explains the options
Doug Scofield assisted us in carrying out several major transactions and contracts. He went beyond the usual "sign here", and instead explained what options we could consider and the implications of our choices. This was most valuable to us as we struggled with major life decisions. We have already recommended him to friends.
Truly exceptional attorney!
Attorneys Douglas Scofield provide excellent service from start to finish. Very knowledgeable, very kind and supportive. Excellent response time. Always keep up dated with progress of case. Great in court!! His billing was incredibly reasonable. Thank you for getting me my life back! Highly recommend.
The best divorce lawyer to work with.
If you want an experienced DIVORCE lawyer, Mr Douglas is the right person to talk. Why I capitalized the word DIVORCE? I filled up my divorce in April 2014. Somebody told me about a lawyer and without even asking around, I went blind straight to him. He was doing a little immigration, a little DUI, a very little divorce, a little work injury and many more. Trusting the person who recommended him and not having experience in such matters, I've hired him. He knew indeed more than me, but i saw that the more my divorce advanced, the more confused he became. Also when he was calling me to his office, he was telling me: "When you come bring this amount with you". I have never received any receipt or any justification. In court he was useless not defending me in front of my ex-wife's lawyer. One day listening the radio 105.9 FM, they had "talk with a lawyer" and ask an advice for free. So I did call them and told them that I am not satisfied with my current lawyer and that he never gives me a receipt and I don't trust him. Their advise was to contact him and request all this. So I did and was useless. Finally I decided to call Chicago Bar Association for a referral, and they recommended me Mr Douglas which is a DIVORCE lawyer for over 25 years. Called him, spoke with him clearly, explained him what the problem was and ready set go. Mr Douglas WILL DO THE JOB A TO Z without hesitation. Be sure of that. His bills will be correctly and minutely explained in such way, that you won't have any doubt. His work is fruitful, he gets the job done and you will be stress free. Why I started with the story from the beginning? In order you to know what to expect if you go to any other lawyer.. Next to my house and I'm sure next to yours are 20 lawyer offices. But which one is good, correct and trustful like Mr Douglas? He has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I wouldn't end without thanking him. PS. i was not bribed to write this review but is my pleasure to share the truth.
