I first met attorney Michelle Douglass in late fall of 2003. I had been to numerous attorneys trying to find one that was not only capable, but willing to take on such a challenge. When I presented my case to Ms. Douglass, I was sure it was going to be another dead end as had been the outcome with all of the other attorneys that I had consulted with. As I spoke to Ms. Douglass, I got a feeling of genuine concern, unlike that of the prior attorneys I had spoken to. I say that because all of the previous attorneys shuddered at dealing with my particular case. They were not up to the challenge that would surely ensue. My case was one of which involved taking on some very strong adversaries, local government. I knew nothing of how such a case would be handled or presented. I only knew that I needed help and I needed a strong and knowledgeable attorney who would fight for my rights. Ms. Douglass, I soon came to learn was a formidable force, one to be recognized. Her vast knowledge and skill was soon to become evident. Over time I saw her talents unfold as my case progressed through the natural channels of the law. She never faltered her course always adhering to her principals with the utmost integrity. I knew without a doubt that I had the very best representing me. Ms. Douglass held steadfast throughout and led us to victory. Because of Ms. Douglass’ character and superior representation, you would be hard pressed to find another attorney with the skill and knowledge that she possesses. I’m very grateful that Ms. Douglass was and is available for people such as myself. Ms. Douglass it has been my pleasure to have met you and worked with you on my case for that I will be forever grateful.
