In 1960, a fraternity brother introduced Doug with Kathryn Abbott McWhorter. The two married in 1962.

In 1964, Doug earned his law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law and returned home to Huntsville to begin practicing. Under appointment of the Governor of Alabama, he served as special judge of the Madison County Court from 1966 through 1971.

Doug and his wife of Kathryn are nearing fifty years of marriage and have two sons, Doug and Mac, both attorneys at Martinson & Beason.
