PROVIDING DWI DEFENSE FOR COLLIN, DALLAS & TARRANT COUNTIES
When you’ve been arrested or charged with a crime and your freedom, future, and reputation are on the line, let attorney Doug Wilder help you. He is a trial-tested and recognized Super Lawyer who fights for his clients and will fight for you.
Doug understands how important it is to dedicate his time and efforts to each and every client that trust him to handle their case. This is the reason Doug does not take court appointments. He limits his caseload in order to adequately and effectively represent his clients.
THE BEGINNINGS OF A FORMIDABLE DEFENSE ATTORNEY
Doug was raised in Kansas by a father that taught him the most important lesson in work ethic: “If you are going to do a job, do it right or not at all!” This is why Doug puts in the time and effort even when others would give up. He keeps fighting. It is that fundamental mindset that sets Doug apart from other lawyers.
It was also that mindset that led him to graduate Texas A&M as a “Distinguished Student”; not an easy task, but his dedication paid off and he moved on to law school. Upon graduating law school, Doug worked for the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington D.C. He received an offer from the Ambassador’s law firm at the same time a prosecutor position was offered to Doug in North Texas. Doug accepted the prosecutor position, and for the next 5 years he prosecuted in Denton and Dallas Counties.
During Doug’s tenure as a prosecutor, he was aggressive and successful; creative and engaging in the courtroom. He used his time in the prosecutor’s office to learn the tactics and techniques of becoming a successful trial lawyer. After defeating a highly successful lawyer, Doug was courted to office-share with him and The Wilder Law Firm was founded in January 2000.
He has always stayed on the cutting edge of training and attending seminars to ensure he has the most knowledge he can to represent his clients. This has led him to be recognized as one of the Best Lawyers under 40 in Dallas by D magazine, and also recognized as a Super Lawyer.
THE WILDER LAW FIRM – ACCOMPLISHED & AGRESSIVE
Doug is known for successfully trying cases that are difficult to win. He puts the time and effort in reviewing each case in its entirety for loopholes, technicalities, officer error, and creative angles when trying to perfect a defense.
Doug has a small law firm that produces large results. When you hire The Wilder Law firm, you are hiring Doug; NOT an associate attorney or another lawyer in the firm. All clients have his personal cell and he is just a text or phone call away.
Doug also knows how important it is to have an effective support staff. He has two highly trained and qualified paralegals; Ashley Bauerkemper and Mikey Barshop. They are both an integral part of The Wilder Law Firm and will assist in fighting for your freedom, future and reputation every step of the way.
