Doug Vaughn is the department head of the Gulfport, Mississippi office. He is a problem solver for his clients. He represents people and businesses when they need a voice to be heard and brings fresh ideas to claims to get a resolution in the client’s best interest.
In practicing law, there is no one approach that fits all. Different clients have different ideals and objectives when they bring a case or a matter in need of resolution. Doug spends time listening to clients, understanding their culture, understanding what's important to them and then tailors an approach to their case to achieve their needs and their desires.
Initially trained to defend physicians in medical malpractice lawsuits, Doug is seasoned in the understanding of medical terms and issues that can arise in the defense of personal injury claims. He uses this same knowledge to the benefit of clients in product liability, automobile negligence and premises liability lawsuits. While malpractice and personal injury claims represent the largest portion of Doug’s practice, he also handles business litigation and answers questions of insurance coverage.
Doug’s leadership is demonstrated by his current and active service as 2018 President of the Mississippi Defense Lawyers Association, panel speaking engagements at the 2018 annual meetings of the CLM, and the International Association of Defense Counsel. He is admitted to practice in all state courts in Mississippi and Florida, as well as federal courts in Mississippi and the Southern District of Florida.
