Doug Sachse, a married father of 6, is a 1972 graduate of McDonogh School, and a 1976 cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. He obtained his Law Degree in 1979 after graduating with honors from the University Of Maryland School Of Law.
While at Penn, Doug played midfield for the Quaker lacrosse team. After entering the legal field, his interest in sports did not wane as he was the first to file suit against Robert Irsay and The Baltimore Colts the day after they surreptitiously snuck out of town under cover of darkness. Shortly thereafter, the City of Baltimore followed suit, and the end result was that many of the items of memorabilia from the Colts legendary years in Baltimore were preserved for the City.
Since 1979, Doug has had experience in numerous areas of the law. He tried his first murder jury trial in 1980, and has been routinely in court rooms throughout out the metropolitan area ever since. In the mid 1980âs he worked as an assistant county attorney, and represented the Baltimore County Board of Education in that capacity. This experience gave him the background to engage in areas of education law, most notably the representation of the disabled, that he found personally very fulfilling, and which he has maintained as part of his practice ever since.
In 1986, Doug became a partner in the firm of Turnbull, Mix & Farmer. A large portion of his practice was in the area of civil litigation for several years thereafter, on both the plaintiff and defendantâs behalf. This enabled him to develop a keen eye toward reasonable valuation of personal injury cases and to develop relationships that have proved to be invaluable.
Since July 2004, Doug has been the managing partner of the firm bearing his name. The Firm has dedicated itself to providing affordable, compassionate legal services to those in need.
