  • I have been with Doug English for approximately 20 years and trust Doug and his other advisors completely. When my husband passed away 10 years ago, Doug helped me maneuver all the obstacles that came along and I needed lots of help at that time. Doug and Wes Johnson have always been there to answer any questions I have had, no matter how trivial. I would recommend them to anyone. They really take care of their clients.
