Past Client Testimonials

I use D.A. Doddridge and Associates whenever I’m in need of expert analysis respecting the condition of real estate and issues respecting compliance with the State Building Code and other state and federal regulations. Both Donald and his son David are highly respected in the legal community and are a pleasure to deal with.
Thank you for your professional work with respect to my client’s claim for defective workmanship during the construction of her home addition. Your detailed inspection and photographing of the defects and your testimony before the jury was effective and assisted us in obtaining a just verdict for our client.
I want to thank you for all of your hard work on “An Act Providing for the Licensing of Home Inspectors,” now Chapter 146 of the Acts of 1999. Your support was instrumental in passing this bill into law. I greatly appreciate all of your contributions to this important effort.
