As the captain of this ship, Doug is a fire-engine red streak of energy. Bold, tenacious, cheerful, with just a hint (okay, a heap) of rebellion, he founded DUI Defense Matters in 2013 to offer more creative fixes for drunk and drugged-driving charges.
Fortunately, Doug isn’t all talk and flash. Raised on a rural New Mexico ranch, his only audience the herd and flock, this top-rated attorney honed a humble work ethic that ensures every detail is double-checked, every possibility explored, and every cow safely tucked in for the night. With degrees from New Mexico Highlands University and the University of Denver, he has published more than 25 precedent-setting case articles over the course of his career.
Doug’s certainly well on his way to leaving a mark on history—both in the courtroom, and on Colorado’s double black diamond ski trails—but you’re most likely to find him on the sidelines, cheering on his teenage twins at one of their many sporting events.
Stay classy, Mr. Thomas.
