Ed Dawson wrote in a nomination letter for the Washington State Public Justice Award, which Doug won in 2011, “Doug’s public service has not come without sacrifice by him and his family of time and money. He believes this is the example he should set as a member of the legal community and the example he should be for his children.” Doug was the incorporator and co-founder of the nonprofits, “Heal the Bay” in Los Angeles and “Cup of Cool Water” in Spokane.
Doug has also been the pro-bono Corporate Secretary of St. John's Properties for over 25 years; owning and managing 1200 units of low income housing and currently attempting to expand more in Spokane County.
