Doug was nominated for his over 25 years of leadership in addressing design decisions regarding the child seat industry and promoting state of the art protection to children, especially with regard to side impact protection and the minimum allowable weight for using booster seats, as well as his involvement with Safe Kids International on a Blue Ribbon Panel examining the complex issues surrounding the restraint of children in autonomous vehicles.

Choice of an attorney is an important decision and should not be based solely upon a website or advertisements. In reviewing achievements by the law firm or its attorneys, remember that past results afford no guarantee of future results; every matter is different and must be judged on its own merits. And, although our lawyers may practice in subject areas, neither the Supreme Court of Missouri nor The Missouri Bar reviews or approves certifying organizations or specialty designations for Missouri licensed attorneys.
