Keith Friley did an amazing job assisting my family with legal matters. He was very attentive and reassuring and we couldn’t ask for a better outcome. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Mr. Friley!

Mr. Dugas is highly skilled in his profession. Without his expertise, I’m unsure where my daughter and I would be today. Unfortunately, my daughter’s father has been adversarial in legal matters, resulting in him gaining custody. Thankfully, Mr. Dugas fought diligently for us and successfully regained custody for me. In comparison to my previous attorney, Mr. Dugas’s accomplishments far exceeded expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Dugas for his outstanding representation in the courtroom to anyone who need representation.

— M. M.

I wasn’t the actual client I was the person Mr Fritz was actual in court against, but he helped me tremendously with the process. He was respectful professional understanding and helped create common ground for both parties. I hate I didn’t hire him for myself but it’s all well because he helped both parties. He not only tries and help his clients, but everyone involved, and I really appreciate him for that. I wanted to cry actually because he made possible for me what I’ve been trying to do for some time now and wasn’t my lawyer but my ex’s lawyer, but he still helped me as well. Thank you so much Mr. Fritz for bringing my family back together slowly. You are appreciated deeply. Keep up the amazing work and God Bless you.

I highly recommend Fritz H. Dugas. He is a great Attorney he helped me get out of a bad situation. Thanks to Mr. Fritz H. Dugas I have been cleared of those charges.

— Donald J.

I have endured the headaches and ins and outs that comes with a 2 year almost 3 year long custody battle. Thanks to Mr. Fritz Dugas I would like to express my most sincere thanks and most professional representation on my case. He was very understanding, patient and handle the matter well.
I admire his work ethic and most importantly excellent representation. If you’re looking for a great lawyer I highly recommend him. Thank you, Mr. Fritz Dugas.

Keith Friley is the best family law attorney in our area. So thankful for finding him.

– M.H.

I was lucky to find Keith as I entered an unprecedented situation in my life. He promptly responded to my request with a phone call, was knowledgeable about my needs, and we have been a team ever since. He has been my legal counsel since April 2021 and still diligently working for my protection.
Keith has all the great qualities you need in a lawyer like patience, perseverance, and people skills. What makes him exceptional is his willingness to listen and collaborate. He also wants to win! Keith and Diane are compassionate and have done everything to support me.

– L.P.

Keith Friley is the best family law attorney in Baton Rouge. He was my attorney for 6 years in a tumultuous and very complex heated custody battle and did an excellent job. He truly cares for his clients, their interests, and fights for the protection of children in custody cases. He’s a divorce attorney, custody attorney and to my knowledge has never lost an emergency exparte child protection custody case. If you are in need of a top notch attorney, then Keith is your man. In my case, the other party filed bogus motions and several made up TROs and all were dismissed. He is great.

– L.G.

Attorney Fritz Dugas is a fantastic lawyer, he is articulate and thorough, he is very dependable. He is a very detail orientated lawyer and deals only with the facts pertaining to your case. If you have a complicated or simple case it is worth contacting Attorney Fritz Dugas.

– K. D.

Just wanted to express my appreciation to you for your guidance and help with this case. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for the work you did for me.

– J.B.

Thanks for your help all these years!

– T.K.

Keith, thank you again for your quick work on this.

– Matt K.

We like that you respond to every e-mail & keep us updated whether it is major or just a simple acknowledgement. With your positive support and the uplifting prayers from the family we are able to keep our family grounded through these tough times.

– Lisa S.

I must have called half a dozen other family law offices in Baton Rouge and their priorities were all made clear within a few minutes of our conversation. Money seemed to be their top priority over anything else. I will never forget the first time I spoke with the office at Friley & Dugas. They first and foremost wanted to know what my issue was, how it was affecting me, and how they could help me get to where I wanted to go. If you want a lawyer who is going to treat you like a person and not just another client, I cannot recommend Friley & Dugas enough. They made a difficult situation for me easy, quick, and dignified.

– J.S.

Thank you, Keith and thank your wife also for everything. If anyone is ever looking for your services, I will recommend you.

God Bless

– Damian B.

Mr. Dugas is both professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate toward his clients. I would recommend him in any case as he goes above and beyond to serve his client’s needs. Exceptional!

– Jennifer R.

Thanks for the very capable legal services.

– Judy F.

Keith, Thanks for handling everything for me during the process. You truly made it easy and painless.

– James L.

Keith, there are no words to express my gratitude for your extreme professionalism, knowledge, savvy, “know how” to get the job done with your magic touch. Just by my simple phone call to you as an introductory explanation of my circumstances, before even meeting you in person, you had everything laid out and structured to proceed with the divorce proceedings. You are quite a mover and a shaker. You have impeccable knowledge of the legal system. Diane is very dedicated and knowledgeable in her role as manager and savior to your daily operations. I must admit you and Diane make the greatest team together. I thank both of you for your support and encouragement in helping me throughout this ordeal.

For that I say y’all are awesome.

– Pat D.

Keith, I really appreciate your hard work and the great result!

– Jeff A.

Keith, you and Diane are truly wonderful; professionally and as friends. I can never truly express the amount of gratitude I have for you and Diane.

Wonderful experience!

I have called upon Keith a few times over the past few years and I have never regretted one moment. I cannot say how truly pleased I have been with Keith and Diane. While working with Keith, I felt like my situation was in very trustworthy hands.

Keith is extremely knowledgeable and very professional and always steered me in the right direction. I always felt like he understood me and the situation at hand. He always kept me aware of all aspects of what was happening and when it happened. I could always depend on Keith to be up front, honest and very reassuring. He made me feel like I was top priority with him. I never felt like a client, but a friend. I am very grateful and thankful for Keith and Diane’s love for Jesus. I am so pleased that Keith represented me, I would not hesitate to recommend Keith!

– J.A.

I can’t thank you enough.

– C.D.

I want to thank you for all of the hard work that you invested in representing me. I had no idea what lawyer to choose when this began. There are so many, and out of all of those listed, I kept coming back to your page every time. I have no doubt our Lord had his hand in leading me to the lawyer he intended for me. So I can actually say, He chose you to represent me! He blessed me with a great lawyer and introduced me to yet another one of my brothers in the family of Christ Jesus, that I am truly thankful and grateful to Him for!

– Robert M.

Keith (and his assistant, Diane) have been wonderful to work with. Along with being incredibly knowledgeable about family law, excellent communication and infinite patience are two of many attributes offered to clients. I won’t hesitate to contact the Friley firm if I am ever again in need of an attorney.

– E.L

I really appreciate everything you did for me and my family.

– Brandon M.

Thank you very much for all you have seen and helped me through these last almost 2 years. You have been a huge help!

Keith did a great job helping me and my soon-to-be wife on our pre-marriage civil issues… very professional and thorough and walked us through every step of the way. Would definitely use him again.

I wanted to write to thank you for your support and cooperation. I really appreciate your advice and guidance regarding my custody trial.

My deepest appreciation for just being a phone call or email away every time I needed advice and providing me with a direct concise response.

– Clint D.

Truly amazing lawyer! His outstanding knowledge of the law and guidance, kept me from making several mistakes and led to a clear victory. Being a Military Officer based over a thousand miles away; Keith understood all of the unique problems faced by military personnel. In the end even the opposing lawyer praised his ability and performance. His staff is the greatest; they were always extremely knowledgeable, helpful and eager to answer my questions and concerns. Keith is someone you can trust and will definitely give you the best opportunity to win.

Friley & Dugas, LLC took the time to listen to me in order to determine how he could best help with the specific needs of my case. Through his guidance, I was able to make choices that fit my particular needs. I was especially impressed with Keith’s legal knowledge and his people skills. He assured me that all would turn out okay, as would any attorney, and he kept his word! There were several incidents that were unique to my case, yet Keith led me through them with ease. He is certainly a man of professionalism and candor. Thanks, Keith, for a job well done.

Hi Mr. Friley,
I want to thank you for helping my daughter with her divorce. You were so very nice to me on the phone in explaining the process and more importantly you were so very patient in the way you explained everything to her. With her being in Louisiana and her family being out of state I was worried for her and her ability to see the process through to completion. I believe it was you and your care in dealing with her that allowed her to manage the situation with a minimum of stress.
I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas.
Thanks again.
