Decades Of Family Law Experience

At Douglas Law, A Professional Corporation, we understand how difficult it is to handle family law matters with complex legal issues. Solutions are not always crystal clear, and it’s difficult to discuss your concerns with people outside the family. The right lawyer, however, will work to build an honest relationship with you and help you resolve matters effectively and efficiently.

I am founding attorney Dwayne Douglas. I concentrate in the area of family law and have been practicing law in Lake County since 1991.

I served as the vice chair and the chair of the Lake County Bar Association’s Family Law Committee from 2014 to 2018, and am a member of the Illinois State Bar Association. I have been selected for inclusion in the Illinois Super Lawyers list from 2016 to 2022; only five percent of attorneys in Illinois receive this honor. I am also certified to be appointed by the court for appointment as a guardian ad litem and child representative, and I frequently write and lecture regarding new developments in the law.

I am actively involved in the betterment of our communities and volunteer my services to the community in local government positions and in many other ways.
