  • Get to know Doug 

    I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and upon admission to the Ohio bar joined Robison, Curphey & O’Connell where I have enjoyed the practice of law for nearly 50 years. I have enjoyed the close personal relationships established with clients and in some cases I have represented three generations of the same family.  I participate in various sports and physical fitness endeavors, including downhill skiing. My wife Sue and I are the proud parents of two children and grandparents of 5 grandchildren.
