Douglas Applegate is licensed to practice law in California, Arizona, Texas, Maryland and Virginia. Mr. Applegate is a seasoned trial lawyer with over twenty-eight years of experience, graduating Arizona State School of Law in 1979 (Magna Cum Laude), after attending the Naval Justice School as an Honors Graduate.
For over 30 years, Douglas L. Applegate has handled more than 100 jury trials in courtrooms all over this country. Simply put, he specializes in solving hard problems. His experience and expertise span many practice areas both in civil and criminal litigation from representing doctors before professional/medical boards & peer reviews to defending U.S. Marines wrongly accused of international war crimes. After serving many years in the U.S. Marine Corps and larger firms, we formed this association to offer an alternative to the traditional law firm to offer a different approach. That approach delivers and achieves our clients’ objectives: a commitment to victory.
The Greek word “hero” literally means “protector” “defender” or “guardian”. We became lawyers to serve justice for our clients and defend our clients in their most difficult challenges of their lives. We stand ready take on difficult but important causes to defend clients against institutions with limitless resources.
Whether one is accused of white collar crime, steroid / narcotics offenses, assault, domestic violence, fraud, embezzlement or murder, or your professional license is being threatened, prosecution of these cases is typically brought on by the personal or political agendas of those within the government or private groups with limitless war chests. In particular cases the government is more aggressive than others. For instance, where one man faces manslaughter charges another is charged with murder. In white collar crime or securities cases some are pursued solely by the SEC, while others face far more serious prosecution in Federal court.
We are attorneys who steadfastly believe in the core values that have historically made this country unique and help to balance the scales. The rights of the individual are almost always paramount to those of the government and large corporations who are too big to fail.
Our cases involve sensitive matters with the potential for severe consequences, requiring the highest level of discretion and tact from an attorney. At the Law Offices of Douglas L. Applegate, we have over 30 years of experience representing clients whose professional licenses are at risk or clients charged with domestic violence and other serious crimes. We will advise you of all of your options and aggressively represent you to the prosecutor, judge and before the jury. Call our office today at (602) 773-1108 for a confidential consultation.
