Douglas Salsbury

Douglas Salsbury, a founding partner of The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm, has extensive experience in handling a variety of personal injury cases. Right out of law school, he worked in the claim department for State Farm, the world's largest auto insurance company. While there, he gained valuable experience in the areas of insurance law and contract and tort law. He then became an associate and later a partner with a mid-size St. Louis law firm, litigating and trying lawsuits in such diverse areas as medical malpractice, products liability, wrongful death, motor vehicle accidents, boating accidents, and general personal injury, including slip and fall accidents and property damage disputes.


Douglas Salsbury has tried numerous jury cases in many jurisdictions and is a certified member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is recognized as the most prestigious group of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards, and settlements. The organization was founded in 1993 and there are approximately 2,500 members located throughout the country. Forum membership acknowledges excellence in advocacy and provides members with a national network of experienced colleagues for professional referral and information exchange in major cases. Members must have acted as principal counsel in at least one case in which their client has received a verdict, award, or settlement in the amount of one million dollars or more.


Mr. Salsbury was born in Fort Wayne, IN. However, he lived there only briefly and considers St. Louis to be his hometown. He was educated at Hazelwood High School, where he played baseball and football and was a co-captain of the varsity wrestling team. He graduated cum laude from the University of Missouri with a degree in Administration of Justice. He later received his law degree from Washburn University School of Law in Topeka, KS, where he was the editor of the Constructive Notice, a Washburn Student Law Publication. 

Mr. Salsbury has a vast knowledge and experience in the field of law. His practice became that of a plaintiff lawyer, wherein he represented persons injured in accidents, including survivors killed in occurrences due to the negligence of others. A new affiliation was formed in July of 1994 with the creation of The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm, based in Eureka, MO. In these undertakings, Mr. Salsbury and The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm have been successful in recovering millions of dollars for their clients. In addition Mr. Salsbury holds licenses to practice law in both the State of Missouri and the State of Illinois, including various Federal Courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.


When not practicing law, Mr. Salsbury enjoys travelling with his family, playing with his dogs, driving his tractor on his farm, and practicing the seven musical instruments which he plays.
