Doug joined the Bradley & Bradley L.C. law firm in 2015 after practicing for over eight years at a boutique Kansas City law firm specializing in complex litigation and personal injury trial work.  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 an attorney, having watched his father, Gary Bradley, and grandfather, Newton Bradley, help clients obtain justice through the legal system.

Doug is licensed to practice in the states of Missouri and Kansas.  His practice focuses on personal injury and wrongful death cases involving automotive and trucking accident litigation, product liability and automotive defects, recreational injuries, spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, bad faith insurance litigation and general tort law.  Doug’s practice also includes workers compensation, estate planning (wills & trusts) and estate litigation, real estate, corporation formation and representation, and traffic and criminal defense.  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, Top 10 Under 40 Award for Missouri by NAOPIA, and as a Super Lawyer’s “Rising Star” in Missouri and Kansas by Super Lawyer's Magazine.  Doug is also a member of the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

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
