A Message From W. Douglas McKeague

Douglas takes extreme pride in providing comprehensive and quality representation to his clients.

“Each client is different, each case is different, and each client has unique and different needs. Clients need an effective and seasoned attorney who can provide quality representation and an attorney who has the gift to be able to listen to the specific and individual needs of each particular client. Each client is entitled to an attorney that can be strong and aggressive, yet caring and compassionate to each particular client’s needs.

More importantly, each client is entitled to the support and patience that he or she requires and deserves, as the client attempts to navigate what may very probably prove to be the single most difficult emotional experience of his or her life. I consistently strive to provide that level of representation and support.”
