Overview

Doug Logsdon has built his practice around what his clients need most. As a civil litigator, he handles a wide variety of issues for his clients, primarily in the areas of commercial and business litigation, bankruptcy, creditor’s rights and foreclosure, and real estate. Whatever it is his clients need, whether large or small, Doug is there to help them solve problems with the diligence, efficiency, and willingness to fight that are essential to any litigator’s success. Though he prefers to help his clients avoid the time, stress, and expense of trial, Doug has extensive courtroom experience and is always prepared to go to bat for his clients when necessary. Even when things aren’t easy—which they rarely are—Doug keeps working tirelessly to find the most effective solutions and most favorable outcomes for his clients.

Doug’s practice encompasses a range of civil litigation matters, with particular concentration in the areas of creditor's rights, debt workouts, collection and foreclosure litigation, real estate title defense and litigation, and general civil litigation. He often represents creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, including automatic stay matters, preference litigation, lien avoidance actions, and other litigation and negotiation matters. He routinely files claims, analyzes Chapter 11 and 13 plans, and performs routine Chapter 7 and 13 tasks. Doug gained trial experience before numerous Colorado courts and juries from 1992 to 1999, and continues to try cases before judges, juries, and arbitrators, and to pursue and defend appeals. He has argued before the Colorado Court of Appeals, the Kentucky Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel for the Sixth Circuit.

From 2008 to 2009, Doug served as the President of the Fayette County Bar Association (FCBA). Since 2009, he has been a board member of the Fayette County Bar Association Pro Bono Program. Additionally, Doug served on the Board of the FCBA during the creation of the Fayette County Bar Foundation. In 2006, a complex legal case related to a tragic accident resulted in a substantial settlement for the victims’ families and a sizeable payment to the FCBA’s lawyer referral service. The FCBA polled its membership and decided to create a lasting legacy with its share of the proceeds. The Fayette County Bar Foundation was born. The FCBA’s initial investment was buoyed by contributions from local attorneys and law firms, creating an endowment to fund a variety of law-related philanthropic efforts in Fayette County. Grants to community organizations are awarded annually based on recommendations from the Grants Committee. This is a one-of-a-kind asset that our local bar established for the benefit of Fayette County. Doug is proud to be a part of a bar association that used this opportunity to help its community.
