CCChevelle D. Douglas
eA Family Law, Juvenile Law & Special Education Firm
“My experience has shown me that unprepared, unrepresented individuals lose, at a greater rate, when the other party is represented by an attorney. The Complaint I hear most is that,” I didn’t get a chance to speak” or “ The Judge just believed everything the other side said.” Even worse, I watched a woman arrested after the Judge asked her to “present her case” and she did not know what to do or say. Everyone deserves the opportunity to be heard and I make sure my clients voices are heard.”
Chevelle D. Douglas, Esq. is a dynamic and versatile trial attorney with over ten years of cumulative expertise in Family Law, Special Education Law and Juvenile Law.
