Doug joined Shamberg, Johnson and Bergman as an associate in 2006.  Born and raised in Lexington, Missouri, he is a third-generation attorney who brings small-town values and a tireless work ethic to his practice.  From an early age, Doug learned to respect and admire the responsibility and personal reward that comes from being a trial attorney, having watched his father, Gary R. Bradley, help personal injury victims obtain justice.  Doug’s goal at Shamberg, Johnson and Bergmann is to help innocent victims seek justice and also obtain just compensation for their losses. 

Doug is licensed to practice in the states of Missouri and Kansas.  His practice focuses on personal injury, products liability, automotive and trucking accident litigation, recreational injuries, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, medical negligence and general tort law.  Doug was named as one of the “Best of the Bar” by the Kansas City Business Journal.  He was also recognized as one of the “Top 40 under 40” lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers and as a Super Lawyer’s “Rising Star” in Missouri and Kansas by SuperLawyer’s Magazine.

Doug attended law school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City where he graduated in the top ten percent of his class in May 2006.  While at law school, Doug was a member of the Law Review, treasurer for the Student Bar Association and a teaching assistant for the law school’s Academic Enrichment Program.  Prior to attending law school, Doug graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Missouri-Columbia, earning a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance in May 2003.

Doug’s hobbies include traveling, playing golf and skiing.  Most of all Doug looks forward to spending time with his wife Anne, who is also a lawyer, and their two children.
