“What a relief it was to have Douglas Barker representing me! I previously had legal counsel that was taking care of my case but was doing a very poor job of it! You’re just not going to find a better attorney than Doug Barker! He truly cares for his clients’ best interests and went out of his way to ensure I was taken care of in a difficult situation! I can not thank him enough for getting my life back on track and helping me through one of the most difficult situations I have ever been in!”
