Biography

As a child, Doug Williams spent a good amount of the time when he wasn't in school on the cruise lines, where his father was the chief medical officer. These experiences gave him the knowledge and passion he needed to pursue a career in maritime law. After graduating magna cum laude at Florida State University and earning his Juris Doctorate, Doug accepted a position with a leading maritime law firm in Tampa, Florida. Here, he handled commercial disputes and the defense of casualty lawsuits.

In 2011, Doug and his wife relocated to Seattle, Washington, where Doug joined a Seattle maritime law firm defending Seattle-based commercial fishing companies and cruise lines. He has since joined his current firm, BoatLaw, LLP, and devotes his practice to representing injured seamen in the Pacific Northwest.
