I am a 50-something Pennsylvania lawyer in solo practice with my office in an old mansion outside of beautiful downtown Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania in suburban Philadelphia.
I have worked in each area where a lawyer can work – in a corporation, in government, in a law firm, and for the last ten years in solo practice. Each of those experiences came along at the right time in life – but I am very happy with a seven minute commute these days, working in a beautiful old Main Line home, and running a low overhead law practice.
As my own boss, I do not need to squeeze every matter for every last nickel, but I can do what I went into the field of law to do – help people with their problems. My practice areas include real estate, contracts, finance, construction, business formation (corporations, partnerships, LLC’s) and operation, estate planning – wills, powers of attorney, living wills and trusts- and probate and estate administration.

Having moved to Swarthmore, PA in 2009 I needed to have an up-to-date will, a Transfer on Death Agreement and a Power of Attorney. My daughter and her husband knew Doug and had used him for there legal information, so I used him to prepare those legal papers for me.
Doug handled 2 estate settlements for me during 2013 & 2014, doing an excellent job in a very confusing environment – much of that confusion created by his customer. Doug provided sage legal advice with humor and grace – couldn’t ask for better -so maybe we shouldn’t kill all the lawyers!
I have been using Mr. Humes’ legal services since 1990, for all of my half-dozen businesses that I own and control – businesses locally and a nationwide business. And personal matters as well. Here are just some of the legal services that I have received from Mr. Humes throughout the years: Drafting Tenant and Landlord Leases, Lease Negotiations (represented me as a tenant and landlord – on separate occasions, on both sides of the issues), Real Estate Transactions (bought and sold), Court Representation (only once, thank god! That’s because before I started using he’s leases. NO MORE OFF THE SHELF LEASES FOR ME, thank you!! And NO more problem since then – commercial and residential leases), Real Estate Planning, Formation of Corporations, Contract Negotiations, and many many more! I find him to be extremely knowledgeable in the field that he’s in. Highly recommended, for both business or personal legal services!
Doug helped us every step of the way while handling a very difficult inter-family real-estate sale. He was available anytime I called, even on holidays. He promptly answered my questions, provided legal documents and provided real-time advice over the phone during negotiations. I was very please with Doug’s professionalism, attention to detail and quick response. I highly recommend his services.
