About Me

When I began practicing law years ago I simply wanted to help others, but did not specifically know in what way. As I began representing clients, just by circumstance the clients who I was helping happened to be clients who had been charged with committing crimes. Then one night in 2009, my wife and I were driving home from the airport and narrowly missed being hit head-on by a drunk driver who was driving the wrong way on the street that we were on. As his headlights suddenly appeared in front on me, I turned to the right as he crashed into the median. We were extremely fortunate and he was eventually convicted of driving under the influence. This was the night that I realized how quickly a life could be changed in an accident, and this was the night that my law firm stopped representing criminal defendants and began to focus on helping injured victims!

Over the years, my law firm has represented thousands of injured victims and has recovered over $80,000,000.00 for those friends that we have helped. Through all of this experience, I have seen insurance companies go to great lengths to protect their finances at the expense of our clients. I take great pride knowing that I, along with the attorneys and team who work by my side, are the gatekeepers who protect our clients and are the gladiators who take the fight to those who would harm our clients. This is why I have built this law firm!

    I endorse this lawyer. Doug Zanes is an excellent attorney who strongly advocates for injured victims. He has dedicated his career to help those in need who have fallen victim not only to tortfeasors, but also to high powered insurance companies. He has maintained a high level of success in these endeavors and continues to do so.
