It is with deep sorrow  that we announce the passing of our long time friend and colleague Douglas N. Nelson.  Doug served in an “of counsel” capacity to the firm bringing his 30 years of experience in probate, real estate and business law to the firm until his death in September, 2016.  He was a lifelong resident of the Port Huron Area and a U.S. Army Vietnam War Veteran.   Prior to joining the firm he was managing partner of Douglas N. Nelson P.C. and previously was a Vice President of Michigan National Bank’s Trust Department. Doug earned  B.A. and M.A. degrees from Northern Michigan University and a J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law (f/k/a Detroit College of Law).  He was been  active in leadership positions in numerous community organizations including serving as co- chairman of the  Mercy Hospital Development Board,  and as a director of Goodwill Industries and the Center for Independent Living and served as an instructor for courses offered through St. Clair County Community College and the National Banking Association.  Doug’s counsel will be greatly missed.
