Doug loves working with our clients to achieve the best results, whether that means resolving a case through negotiations or taking the case to trial. Even before attending law school, Doug wanted to be a trial lawyer. Like many courtroom attorneys, his path as a lawyer began in a public defender’s office. He gained an immense amount of experience trying cases working for the state's largest criminal defense contractor for over four years. During that time, he handled an incredibly wide variety of cases from minor misdemeanors, and traffic offenses, including DUIIs, all the way up to the most serious Ballot Measure 11 offenses to both juries and judges.
In addition to his focus on criminal cases, he also worked for over three years as a civil litigator handling personal injury cases all over Oregon and Washington and owned his own law firm. This combination of trial experience and business development seems to be the sweet spot for his curiosities.
With Doug’s success and dedication to law, he has been recognized by many reputable organizations. His abilities in the courtroom are clear with his Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys from the National Trial Lawyers Organization as well as his inclusion on the National Trial Team at Indiana University School of Law. He also continues to feed his interest in growing businesses and received a Certificate of Achievement from the Dale Carnegie Training Business Development Program.
