Douglas grew up in the Pee Dee Region of South Carolina in the city of Bennettsville. After graduating from Clemson University and receiving a B.A. in Political Science, Douglas attended law school at the Charleston School of Law.

While a law student, Douglas served as Vice-President of the Student Trial Lawyers Organization and worked for the First Circuit Solicitor's Office and the Douglas Jennings Law Firm, LLC in Bennettsville, SC with his father.

While at Yarborough Applegate, Douglas has helped clients achieve successful results in cases involving tractor trailer collisions, bad faith (insurance) litigation, motor vehicle collisions, wrongful death lawsuits, medical malpractice, commercial/business litigation, and premises liability.

During this time, Douglas has litigated numerous complex civil cases which have resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements in both state and federal courts. He is based out of Charleston but maintains strong ties to his local community in the Pee Dee where he currently serves as co-counsel in many cases.
