Douglas W. BaileyDouglas W. Bailey Partner

Partner

Douglas went to the University of Southern California in 2001 to study filmmaking and screenwriting. He worked in the film and television industry in Los Angeles until just before his second child was born. At that point, Doug and his family moved back home to Wyoming to start a career in the law. Doug graduated from UW’s College of Law at the top of his class, and since joining the firm, has obtained millions in settlements for his clients and helped them on their road to recovery.

Doug is a partner in the firm and focuses his practice on Personal Injury and Wrongful Death. He advocates for individuals who’ve been hurt and for family members who have lost loved ones, and he takes pride in the fight against insurance companies and other systems that would deny the injured fair compensation. Doug also enjoys opportunities to help people build and strengthen their families through adoption or guardianship.

Doug is licensed in State Courts in Wyoming and Colorado, Federal Courts in Wyoming, and the Shoshone and Arapaho Tribal Court of the Wind River Reservation. Doug is a member of the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association and American Bar Association. For the last three years, Doug has been recognized by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys as a Top Ten Personal Injury Attorney under the age of 40 in the State of Wyoming, and for the last two years, Doug has been recognized as a Mountain States Super Lawyers “Rising Star.”
