About This Firm

Fort Wayne Family Law and Criminal Defense Lawyer

Aggressive Representation - Personal Service

Aggressive representation, to me, is the culmination of experience, knowledge, skill and understanding of the law that gives me a certain degree of confidence in both mediations and trials. I will vigorously represent you to protect your best interests and to minimize the potential consequences of the situation you now find yourself in.

I am Michael T. Douglass, a Fort Wayne family law and criminal defense attorney. I provide legal advice and representation to residents in communities throughout Indiana who are facing a wide range of troubles, including:

Criminal defense: I defend clients charged with varying felony and misdemeanor crimes such as drug crimes, sex crimes, juvenile crimes, traffic violations and probation violation.

Family law: My firm will stand behind you when you are facing issues surrounding your family such as divorce, child support, child custody, paternity and adoptions.

The goal of Douglass Law Firm, is to represent clients in a professional and confident manner. I will take the time to interview my clients at length to learn as much as I can about their goals, motivations and circumstances surrounding their dilemma. I will develop a case strategy uniquely tailored to my clients' needs and situation. Contact my office for a free case evaluation.

Confident Representation With a Personal Touch

Many lawyers use the term aggressive to refer to their firm, style or methods. I believe that aggressiveness is often misconstrued to mean adversarial, combative or belligerent. It is my opinion that aggressive representation is more about being confident in your ability to properly represent your clients no matter what the situation.

As a Fort Wayne defense attorney, I have had the opportunity to help a great number of clients navigate troubling situations in their lives. Since founding Douglass Law Firm, I have specifically focused my practice on criminal defense and family law. I believe most people will need the guidance of a skilled attorney in one or both of these areas over the course of a lifetime. You can count on my preparation, my diligence and my ability to offer solutions to difficult problems throughout your case.

I'm not a hard sell. I'm not here to twist anybody's arm. When we move forward in the case, my client is my partner. I know that I can't deliver on their goals without their help. I need to be able to trust them, and they need to be able to trust me. We need to be able to communicate through both the good and the bad to reach a successful resolution.

Contact the Firm

I understand that people work late and that legal troubles do not always adhere to a certain schedule. With that in mind, I make it a point to be available to meet with my clients at any time of the day, any day of the week. I'm not afraid to stay late, to work weekends or to meet during the evening if it means giving my clients peace of mind. You can count on me to be accessible and responsive throughout the duration of your case.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
