Mr. Salsbury is a graduate of Washburn University of Topeka School of Law and concentrates his practice in catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death litigation.  

Douglas B. Salsbury, a founding partner of The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm, was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  He lived there only briefly, however, and considers St. Louis to be his hometown. 

Mr. Salsbury was educated at Hazelwood High School, where he played baseball, football, and was a co-caption of the varsity wrestling team.  He attended the University of Missouri-St. Louis on a partial scholarship as a wrestler. Though wrestling light in the 158 pound class, Mr. Salsbury enjoyed success as a college wrestler, and was a National qualifier.  Mr. Salsbury paid for the balance of his college education while working as a janitor at Sears Roebuck.  Mr. Salsbury was graduated from UMSL cum laude, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in The Administration of Justice.

From there, Mr. Salsbury attended Washburn Law School in Topeka, Kansas.  While there, he distinguished himself as an American Jurisprudence Award Winner, and as editor of a Washburn Publication known as The Constructive Notice.  He was also the only law student in the Washburn Jazz Band, where he played trombone.

During his law school days, Mr. Salsbury supported himself, and paid for his education working a variety of jobs, including such diverse positions as early morning dispatcher for a Temp. company, country club waiter, security guard, truck driver, construction worker and hospital orderly. 

In 1979, after receiving his Doctorate of Jurisprudence Degree, Mr. Salsbury moved to Kansas City, where he secured a position with a medical supply company, and studied for the Bar Examination at night.  After passing the Bar Examination on his first attempt, Mr. Salsbury moved back to St. Louis and accepted a position with the worlds' largest automobile insurance carrier, State Farm.  He also married a lady lawyer, who was a classmate in law school.

While at State Farm, Mr. Salsbury was involved in numerous aspects of claims handling.  He also attended schools conducted by State Farm, gaining valuable insight into the field of insurance law, and serious personal injury claims in particular. 

In 1981, Mr. Salsbury joined an insurance defense firm as an associate.  While an associate, and later as a partner in the same firm, Mr. Salsbury tried numerous cases in such matters as  automobile accidents, slip and fall claims, medical malpractice, products liability, and wrongful death claims.

In 1988, Mr. Salsbury resigned from his partnership in the insurance defense firm, and opened his own office.  Initially, as a sole practitioner, Mr. Salsbury handled a wide variety of cases.  In fact, during the first two years of his then new practice, Mr. Salsbury's clientele was a picture of the wide spectrum of humanity.  His client base included both sexes, all races, adults, children, professionals, as well as accused rapists, murderers, persons seeking divorce and being sued for divorce, persons wrongfully fired, alleged drunk drivers, slander and liable victims, persons in will contests, businessmen involved in commercial litigation, and virtually every area of general practice. 

In the first seven months of his solo law practice, Mr. Salsbury won high profile defendant verdicts in jury trials involving claims of wrongful deaths allegedly caused by defective products. In one of those cases, in a jury trial extending approximately one month, Mr. Salsbury's client had faced multiple counts and an aggregate claim for some One Hundred Million Dollars.  The St. Louis City jury returned a verdict in favor of Mr. Salsbury's client. 

After two years or so in what was certainly a very general type of litigation practice, Mr. Salsbury gradually began moving away from general practice and declining work as a defense attorney.  More and more, 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.  In addition, that part of Mr. Salsbury's practice involving Workers' Compensation claims on behalf of injured workers, grew.  By 1994, part of Mr. Salsbury's law practice involving representation of claimants and plaintiffs had grown substantially.  It was at that point that a new affiliation was formed with the creation of The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm, based in Eureka, Missouri. 

Since July of 1994, when The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm was formed, Mr. Salsbury has continued his active representation of persons suffering injury due to the negligence of others.  He has also undertaken numerous battles against insurance companies to obtain compensation for persons injured or killed.  In these undertakings, Mr. Salsbury and The Miller/Salsbury Law Firm have been successful in recovering millions of dollars for their clients.
