Douglas C. Fladseth

Doug Fladseth began his law practice in Los Angeles in 1978 after graduating from University of California Hastings College of Law. He spent five years in Southern California as a defense attorney handling cases in all aspects of Personal Injury Law. He kept a busy trial schedule filled primarily with clients in motor vehicle, slip and fall, dog bite, asbestos, and pharmacy lawsuits. Doug honed his defense skills by working with the top Los Angeles attorneys in the Personal Injury field.

In 1983 he moved his practice to Sonoma County where he defended all the hospitals on the North Coast in a variety of matters. For a decade he never lost a hospital defense case when at trial. These experiences gave Doug an unvarnished view of the American hospital industry.

In the early ‘90’s he took his first case prosecuting a major Northern California hospital chain.  After a successful prosecution of that case, Doug has continued to represent consumers and victims of medical malpractice and neglect in a wide variety of matters. To this day, he champions those individuals with a valid grievance against large hospital chains and pharmaceutical companies.

Doug lives in the Rincon Valley area of Santa Rosa with his wife Debbie who is a local physical therapist. They have two adult children working in Sonoma County and a pet beagle, Millie, who rarely works at all. After time with his family, Doug pursues tennis, biking, backpacking and travel.
