“Discrimination in the workplace not only affects you financially, but mentally as well.  From the onset, the Douglass Law Firm provided the legal and emotional support that I needed to overcome this difficult experience.  Attorney Douglass was with me through every step in the process from drafting my resignation letter to meeting with the Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities to finally pursuing action through the court system.   At any time, I could reach out to Attorney Douglass or her paralegals.  I could always count on their professionalism and quick response time.  
Attorney Douglass was very thorough, knowledgeable and, most importantly, always believed in me and the merits of my case.  Ultimately, the case settled in my favor, and thanks to the efforts of the Douglass Law Group, I was left emotionally satisfied and financially whole.” 

—  Dr. Blaire L. Michael, VMD
