Doug is admitted to practice law in West Virginia and Ohio (inactive), as well as federal courts in both states.

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 28 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 twenty years of his career, he has practiced personal injury law representing thousands of injured clients and helping them receive millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.

Over the years he has helped his clients achieve in excess of fifteen million dollars ($15,000,000.00) 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.
