An attorney’s background tells you whether or not they have the right experience. Their track record lets you know how they have handled similar cases in the past. The professional organizations they belong to offer insight into their interests and connections. Awards and recognition tell you that other professionals value them.

None of those things, however, really tells you what it is like to work with a lawyer. For that, you need to hear from people who have done just that: their clients. They will be able to tell you whether or not a Joliet attorney made their case a priority. If he or she really listened to them and took the time to break things down and guide them through the process. If they handled things in a timely, professional manner. If they worked hard and exhausted all possible options.

That is why Douglas G. DeBoer is proud to feature the testimonials that he has received from past clients. His hope is that in reading them you will get a sense of what it is like to have him on your side during one of the most trying times in your life and that it will help to put your mind at ease.

So feel free to read over them. Then get in touch with our office so he can start helping you to protect your rights and future, too. All you need to do is give us a call at 815-592-9145, shoot over an email to, or fill out or quick online case review form.

Exceptional Attorney

I had my license restricted because of speeding. Mr. Doug appeared very calm and experienced. He appeared to have good relations with prosecutors. The whole charge was waived and I was able to get my license back as if nothing has happened. I recommend him with highest level of confidence

Douglas DeBoer is an Exceptional Criminal Lawyer

Doug is a top-notch lawyer. He truly cares about his clients and will do everything he can to help those he feels truly made a mistake and are good people. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and explores every option possible. He communicates effectively and will do what it takes to help.

He realizes we’re all human and sometimes we make mistakes and he does not judge you for the mistake made but rather the true person you are. I had a very complicated case and I thought I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel. I first reached out to a lawyer in Chicago but due to my case being in Will county, I had to find a Will county attorney and he recommended no one other than Douglas DeBoer. What I remember so vividly about our first conversation when Doug and I met was when he said I don’t like seeing good people get in trouble for a mistake made which can cost him everything.

Doug is a very hard-working, well-respected lawyer, and very prompt in returning phone calls and moving the case forward in our legal system. I wish he practiced in other areas of law. Doug gave me the peace of mine I needed and addressed every question and doubts that came up as we proceeded through the case. My journey has been an emotional roller coaster and knowing I have Doug on my side has made me get through this ordeal in a very peaceful manner.

Bottom line - Douglas DeBoer is an exceptional criminal lawyer and he truly gave me back my life which would’ve cost me and my family everything for an irrational decision I made. Thank you Doug for everything. You’re the best!

I Highly Recommend Him

When the time came to look for representation by an attorney I called the office of Douglas G. DeBoer. With his 20 plus years of experience in law he knew the direction to go in with my situation at our first meeting. He clearly explained the legal process he’d work with and then followed through from the first court date, pre-trial to the final court appearance. I highly recommend him when you need to be defended with positive results.

Doug is the Way to Go

I ran into legal trouble and needed help fast and wanted someone I could trust and rely on. I shopped around for a while until I was referred to Doug. The immediate difference between Doug and the other attorneys I spoke to was that Doug told me how it was and how it was going to be. He didn't feed me false promises and made sure to avoid the "if it's too good to be true" pit. Doug always answered my phone calls and emails almost immediately. He made sure every decision I made was informed and helped me weigh the risks and rewards. If you want an attorney that can tell you the facts and not get your hopes up but just comfort you and help put your mind at ease Doug is the way to go.

Professional and Knowledgeable

I consulted with Mr. DeBoer on a matter and I am pleased with the result. He returned my phone calls promptly, was professional and was knowledgeable on the topic. I would recommend Mr. DeBoer to other individuals looking for a qualified attorney.

Doug's Prompt, Sound Legal Advice Helped Me

I recently consulted Doug about the potential risk for liability resulting from an accident where a parked vehicle was damaged under circumstances that could have been misconstrued and exploited. Doug's prompt, sound legal advice helped me to resolve the matter to the satisfaction of both parties before the situation could escalate further.

I Would Recommend Him Without Hesitation

What most impressed me about Mr. DeBoer was his sincere desire to help my family out. Some of the previous lawyers I'd called acted like I could take them or leave them, but not so with Doug. He worked as hard for our case as he would have for one with a big payoff. I would recommend him without hesitation.
