A native of Washington, Missouri, Doug Aholt graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a Bachelor of Business degree in 1976, and received his J.D. degree from U.M.K.C. in 1979. Doug began his legal career with the Legal Aid of Western Missouri (Kansas City) where he was a Reginald Heber Smith recipient. In 1980 he moved to Atlanta with his wife where he worked a number of years with a small general practice firm prior to going to a medium sized insurance defense firm where he became a partner. For years he represented manufacturing companies and trucking firms in catastrophic injury and death cases.

  More about Doug Aholt

In 2000, Doug and his current partner formed Chambers, Aholt & Rickard, LLP to dedicate themselves to demanding justice and getting results for individuals and families who are injured due to the fault of others. That same dedication is the cornerstone of Chambers & Aholt, LLP which moved its office to Decatur in 2013. Through his experience as a defense attorney Doug has the respect of insurance companies and defense attorneys. Those relationships have continued to benefit him today as he goes against the interests of insurers and his former defense colleagues. Doug knows what to expect from the parties he used to represent and his adversaries respect the fact that they are going against a lawyer who will zealously pursue his client’s rights.

In addition to representing his individual clients, Doug is active with the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association where he has been a Champion level member since 2007. Doug is also a board member of the DeKalb Bar Association in DeKalb County, Georgia where he also serves as the President of the Trial Lawyers Section. He is also a member of the American Association of Justice.

Doug also dedicates himself to being an active community member of his hometown, Decatur, Georgia. As the chairman of the Board of Decatur Arts Alliance, you will see Doug at numerous festivals, local stage productions and various art events. While Doug’s children have graduated from Decatur High School, he still remains active with the booster club and every Fall he can be seen cooking and serving brats at the booster tent of the Decatur Craft Beer Festival. He recently stepped down as the announcer for the lacrosse team, but he can still be heard at the Run With The Dogs race every January. His community awards include Decatur Hometown Hero; YMCA Volunteer of The Year Award and Booster Club Volunteer of The Year Award.
