Doug loves working for his clients to achieve the best results
whether that means trial or settlement. Even before attending law
school, Doug wanted to be a trial lawyer. He gained an immense amount
of experience trying cases working for the state's largest criminal
defense contractor, Metropolitan Public Defender for over four years.
During that time he handled almost every kind of case from minor
misdemeanors, and traffic offenses including DUIIs all the way up to the
most serious Ballot Measure 11 offenses. He tried all kinds of cases
from DUIIs and other misdemeanors to robberies and other serious
felonies to both juries and judges. He also handled juvenile Ballot
Measure 11 or other serious juvenile cases.
After leaving Metropolitan Public Defenders, Doug worked for over
three years as a civil litigator handling personal injury cases all over
Oregon and Washington for one or the largest litigation firms in the
Pacific Northwest. This included litigating, arbitrating, and mediating
negligence cases from automobile accidents and slip and falls to more
complex apartment building fires and bad faith claims.
Doug handled hundreds of first and third party claims on behalf of
insurance companies. He knows the pitfalls and perils of litigating
against large insurers and that experience gives him a decided advantage
over his competition and opposing counsel.
When he is not trying cases, Doug enjoys spending time with his
beautiful wife and two children. He also loves to travel and cook.
Doug enjoys listening to music, seeing live bands and playing basketball
with friends. Before attending law school, Doug owned his own business
and worked as a cook, waiter, and bartender at several local
