Douglas E. Swanson

"I worked with Doug on two auto accident cases, one in which I ended up breaking my neck. I was so impressed by the results of my case that I recommend Doug any chance I get. I was overwhelmed by the wealth of knowledge Doug had, and I learned a lot from him. Not only was I impressed with Doug’s wealth of knowledge, but also with how well he kept me informed throughout my cases. There really isn’t any other firm better than Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® "
