My name is Douglas Goss, but you can call me Doug. I’ve lived in San Joaquin County my entire life. Before becoming a lawyer, I spent 16 years in law enforcement, first with the Stockton Police Department, and later as a Deputy Marshall.

After my wife and I were blessed with three sons, I decided to attend law school to become an attorney. I went to law school in the evenings while working full time to support my family, and passed the California State Bar exam in 1989.

My first job was defending lawsuits on behalf of insurance companies, but I quickly decided that I didn’t want to spend my life trying to prevent injured people from collecting their due.

I now use my inside information as a former law enforcement officer to help individuals accused of crimes and I use my experience as a former insurance defense attorney to help my clients when they get hurt. I enjoy helping the little guy and making a major positive impact in my clients’ lives.

I make my client’s priorities my goal, and I keep my clients up-to-date every step of the way. I always offer free consultations. Call me so we can discuss your case and what the law says about it.
