Brian M. Douglas, Esq. has always been committed to the belief that a person’s legal needs are personal and not just business. This is a cornerstone in Brian’s approach to law and how he serves his clients. In 2003, when he founded Brian M. Douglas & Associates, LLC, his vision was to create an entire culture that
embraced this same powerful concept. And he has.
Brian received his Bachelor of Science degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he studied Mechanical Engineering while working full time as a manufacturing supervisor for a Fortune 100 Corporation. Upon graduation, he moved to Atlanta to attend John Marshall Law School, where he graduated cum laude and as class valedictorian. Brian was initially drawn from engineering to law because of his gifts for reasoning and logic—two qualities that are essential for a successful attorney. And he hasn’t looked back since.
Today, Brian is a highly respected attorney with a solid reputation with his clients, colleagues, opposing counsel, and within the court system throughout the state of Georgia. Through his firm, he has taken on very diverse cases, working with bankruptcy, real estate law, civil/business litigation, foreclosure, criminal law, and what Brian is highly acclaimed for—estate planning and asset protection. According to Brian, “Establishing my own practice has allowed me the freedom to cover many areas of law. This fits my diverse range of interests and benefits the clients we serve.”
A unique approach to business is a driving force behind Brian’s success. Valuing the relationship with his clients and knowing that he is a trusted advisor for life’s most important decisions, Brian stands out through offering concierge style services for his clients and having a no voicemail policy at the firm. When someone calls, they get a live person answering the phone and from that moment on, the relationship with a potential client has begun. He is also a contributor on Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as contributor for Star Tribune, Small Business Trendsetters, Worth, and The Miami Herald. Recently, Brian appeared on the television show, Time Square Today. And now, Brian is an author, enabling him to reach out to more people about life’s most important legal topics.
Brian reflects on his life’s journey with genuine joy and how it brought him to Atlanta, and the practice that he loves. From day one, he’s enjoyed the area for its people, the weather, and how conducive it is to enjoy some of his favorite activities, such as golf and tennis. Today, Brian is married to a wonderful woman, Tess. They have two small children who make life a daily adventure, and are passionate about animal rescue and fostering, along with all causes that help promote it. Now three Chihuahuas are also a part of the Douglas family. According to Brian, “Life is busy, but it’s never been greater. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
