Douglas Alan Funkhouser

About me

My practice is dedicated to representing people charged with criminal offenses.  I pride myself on having handled every type of criminal case from beginning to end.  I learned as a prosecutor in the U.S. Army that a successful attorney must be dedicated and devoted to getting results.  That takes time and practical knowledge.  As I approach my 18th year practicing law, I bring those experiences earned inside the courtroom during jury trials to each one of my client's cases.  Results do matter and I know that preparing properly before trial is one of the keys to success and obtaining a not guilty verdict for my clients.
