"I would highly recommend William Doodnauth to a friend or family member. He was professional and knowledgeable and did an excellent job in winning my case."

– Gus Samaradis, Woodbridge

"When I came to see Mr. Doodnauth I was very nervous because I was involved in an ugly domestic situation. I was being railroaded by the other litigant. However, Mr. Doodnauth and his staff gave me the confidence to deal with this matter. As the matter progressed the tactics of the other party become more aggressive and proceeded in bad faith. Mr. Doodnauth nonetheless recommended that I continue to litigate this matter in a professional manner. As a result, Mr. Doodnauth was successful at every case conference, settlement conference and motion. He considered the best interests of my daughter. I now have full custody of my daughter after not being allowed to see her at all. I would highly recommend Mr. Doodnauth to anyone who is facing a challenging custody battle."

– R. Lopez, Scarborough

"Mr. Doodnauth was very informative and professional in the handling of our matter. My son was facing serious criminal charges. Mr. Doodnauth took the time to advise us of our options and to create an effective strategy for having the charges dismissed. Mr. Doodnauth also made sure that my family and my son understood the process and took our feelings into consideration."

– E. DeSouza, Bradford
