Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Doug was raised in Kansas by a father that taught him the most important lesson in work ethic: “If you are going to do a job, do it right or not at all!” This is why Doug puts in the time and effort even when others would give up. He keeps fighting. It is that fundamental mindset that sets Doug apart from other lawyers.

It was also that mindset that led him to graduate Texas A&M as a “Distinguished Student”; not an easy task, but his dedication paid off and he moved on to law school.

Upon graduating from South Texas College of Law, Doug worked for Vinson & Elkins, LLP in Houston and was assigned to a multi-billion dollar national lawsuit, which sent Doug all over the country.

Making contacts in Washington, D.C, he then went to work for the Ambassador of Ecuador in Washington, D.C. as his legal liaison. Doug assisted the Ambassador in all types of legal matters and international lawsuits.

He received an offer from the Ambassador’s law firm at the same time a prosecutor position was offered to Doug in North Texas. Doug accepted the prosecutor position, and for the next 5 years, he prosecuted in Denton and Dallas Counties.

During Doug’s tenure as a prosecutor, he was aggressive and successful; creative and engaging in the courtroom. He used his time in the prosecutor’s office to learn the tactics and techniques of becoming a successful trial lawyer. After defeating a highly successful lawyer, Doug was courted to office-share with him and The Wilder Law Firm was founded in January 2000.
