Doug joined the Warshauer Law Group over three years ago after working at an insurance defense firm. This experience gave him an important understanding and familiarity with insurance companies and corporations and how they approach lawsuits involving serious personal injuries. Although Doug enjoyed the attorneys he worked with at his prior firm, he realized that his calling was join a team of Georgia personal injury lawyers representing individuals and their families. Fortunately he was given the opportunity to leave defense work and instead work with lawyers like Michael and Lyle Warshauer who have dedicated their professional careers and much of their personal lives defending those wrongfully injured and their families. As a member of our team of Atlanta personal injury attorneys, Doug works every day to plan, strategize, and prepare cases to secure the best compensation for individuals and families who are injured as the result of the carelessness of others. He now feels his successes truly make a difference and improve people's lives, which is very rewarding.
Like the other attorneys at the Warshauer Law Group, Doug strives to be the best both inside and outside the courtroom. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1998 with a degree in Political Science and then received his Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from the University of Georgia School of Law. He has successfully argued motions for clients in state, federal, and appellate courts throughout the state of Georgia. In fact, Doug's appellate record is unbeaten.
Doug is a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association where he is a member of the Young Lawyers Division and is Chair-Elect of the Publications Committee. He is also an active member of the American Association for Justice (formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) and the Georgia State Bar's Young Lawyers Division Litigation Committee.
When Doug is away from the office, he enjoys spending most of his time with his wife and three children going to t-ball, soccer, the zoo, baseball and football games, traveling, or just hanging around the house.
