He has secured a number of personal injury settlements in excess of a million dollars for his local clients and more than one hundred and fifty six-figure settlements for his Workers’ Compensation clients.

Attorney Douglas is an experienced litigator who prides himself on his preparation of his client’s claims. He vigorously represents the needs of his clients, as he understands how important their claim is to their lives and families. He is committed to the individual client and understands the stressful times they are encountering, so he returns calls in a timely manner and is available to answer questions as they arise. This commitment is why many other attorneys refer their clients to Attorney Douglas for handling their client’s claims.
