D. Douglas Titus

I have practiced administrative, tax, business, commercial, estate planning/probate, bankruptcy, and employment law for over twenty years. I also work with families on elder law issues and planning. Before returning to private practice full time, I was with the state and local tax division of a Big Five accounting firm, having previously served for several years as counsel - legislation and policy for the Washington State Department of Revenue.

I have over 25 years of legal practice experience in the areas including small and large business, taxation, employment, bankruptcy and elder law matters such as Medicaid, estate planning, and disability issues). I have also worked significantly in education matters and domestic relations involving non-married couples.

I hold a bachelor's degree in three majors (political science, German, and dramatic art), two master's degrees in education, a law degree and a graduate law degree in taxation.

I have taught graduate classes in taxation at the university level and numerous other courses in other college settings.

My unique strengths include the ability to actually "listen" to my clients and others, so that I can actually "hear and understand" what the problem is and the facts are. I try to talk little and listen much.
