About Douglas

Learn Douglas’s areas of practice.

Doug was born in Washington D.C., raised in Clinton, Maryland, and currently resides in Bridgeport, West Virginia.

He attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 1990.  He received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Dayton School of Law in Dayton, Ohio in 1993.

Doug is admitted to practice law in West Virginia and Ohio, as well as federal courts in both states.  In the past he has belonged to the Dayton Bar Association, the Ohio State Bar Association, and the Ohio Association for Justice.  Although he has kept his license to practice in Ohio active, Doug lives and practices predominantly in West Virginia.  He is currently a member of the American Association for Justice, the West Virginia Association for Justice, the West Virginia Bar Association, and the Harrison County Bar Association.

Having practiced law for 16 years, Doug began his career as a result of his passion to help those in need.  As a result, he has spent his entire legal career championing the interests of citizens who have been victimized.  Specifically, he served as an assistant county prosecutor in Dayton, Ohio convicting dangerous criminals who threatened the community.  He also has worked very hard throughout his career seeking justice for those harmed as a result of the careless and thoughtless acts of others.  For more than ten years of his career, he has practiced personal injury law representing injured parties. 

He has participated in more than 60 jury trials in cases involving issues such as automobile collisions, animal attacks, dangerous premises and motorcycle collisions.  Over the years he has helped his clients achieve in excess of ten million dollars ($10,000,) in settlements and verdicts.  While no amount of money is worth what his clients have been through, it has helped them achieve and maintain a quality of life and receive the future care they may require.
 

Doug is married to the former Heidi Wissler of Germantown, Ohio, and he and his wife have a son, Hunter, and daughter, Madelyn.
