Tucson Car Accident Attorney

In 2003, Doug founded Doug Zanes & Associates, PLLC with the goal of building one of the top personal injury law firms in the State of Arizona. By 2008 Doug was solely a Tucson car accident attorney and had stopped handling other types of legal cases. It was this focus that allowed Doug to build Zanes Law to the firm that it is today.

Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer

In 2014, Doug expanded Zanes Law into Phoenix by starting Zanes Law Group, PLLC. Collectively, both law firms are know as Zanes Law and both firms focus of representing clients who have been injured in accidents. As he builds the firm in Phoenix, Doug’s goal is to provide the better personal injury legal work in Phoenix.
