Doug Alexander of Alexander Dubose Jefferson LLP is unique in his profession. Despite the fact that, having been in practice for almost 40 years, he has represented clients in over 200 cases before the Supreme Court of Texas, accumulated numerous professional accolades and recognitions, and been a name partner at Alexander Dubose & Jefferson for over 15 years, Doug still writes his own briefs and works, hands-on, with peers and clients. That sort of in-the-trenches collaboration is rare for an attorney of his stature.

Doug finds it helps to not only get to know the case, but also to get to know his clients and understand their career, their life and the bigger picture surrounding the case. This approach allows him to represent their concerns to how the law applies, and ultimately get to the heart of the matter. It’s this level of preparation, empathy and understanding that makes him a formidable attorney.

Doug began his impressive legal career as Law Clerk to the Honorable John R. Brown, former Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. From there, he proceeded to build an impressive career as one of the premier appellate advocates specializing in practice before the Supreme Court of Texas. According to Thomson Reuters’ Texas Super Lawyers listings, Doug is one of the “Top 10” lawyers in Texas, and has been each of the past six years.
