Johnson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in real estate and natural resources law to the McDonough Law Group, with a keen focus on title and transactional matters within the oil, gas, and mineral rights fields.

Doug’s academic achievements include an A.B. degree from Kenyon College, followed by service in the U.S. Navy. After his miliary service, he pursued his law degree at the University of Denver. His career path led him from practicing natural resource law in Denver for over a decade to a pivotal role in Alaska. As Senior Counsel for Atlantic Richfield Company, he was instrumental in legal matters for ARCO Alaska’s exploration and major oil fields operations. Following ARCO’s integration into BP, Doug made his way back to Colorado.
