Firm Overview

Firm Overview

Watts Law Offices is ready and able to handle a variety of litigation (i.e., court) cases for our clients.

Since 2009, Doug’s firm has successfully handled a variety of civil litigation, family law, and criminal matters all over Northern California, in both the California state and federal courts. He has an emphasis on employment matters representing wrongfully terminated employees, as well as those who have been the target of unlawful discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in the workplace. Doug also specializes in bodily injury cases wherein our clients are harmed by the negligence of others.

In addition to employment and injury cases, Watts Law Offices also takes on big insurance companies who wrongfully deny insurance benefits to their policy-holders after they’ve suffered financial losses. As a trained litigator and trial attorney, Doug views each case as one that may ultimately end up in front of a judge or jury at trial and prepares accordingly, even though, statistically speaking, most cases are resolved prior to trial.

All of Watts Law Offices’s clients and cases receive Doug’s personal attention, and we are generally quite flexible when it comes to making our attorney fee; sometimes, clients prefer to pay Doug by the hour to complete legal tasks, while others may prefer a contingency-fee agreement whereby Watts Law Offices gets paid once a matter is settled. Either way, our clients’ goals and best interests are the top priority.

Doug’s Bio

I am a native Northern Californian, and with the exception of my five “wilderness years” spent in Coeur d’Alene and Moscow, Idaho, I have been here my entire adult life.

Doug Watts

I graduated from Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland in 1986, and from UC Davis in 1991. After spending two years working as a sports and general assignment reporter at two newspapers in Idaho, I enrolled in the University of Idaho College of Law in 1992. After graduating in 1995, I took and passed the California Bar Exam in February 1996. I have been in continuous practice since June 1996.

Having learned from some of California’s finest attorneys for 13 years, I started Watts Law Offices in February 2009.

I believe that a healthy work/recreation balance is essential; thus, when I’m not working away on my clients’ legal matters, you may find me on a golf course, flying a Cessna into a local airport, or watching a movie with my fiancée.
