Doug Christian Honored by the AADC with the 2017 Distinguished Service Award

The Arizona Association of Defense Counsel honored CDS founder Doug Christian at its Past President’s Reception and Fall Kick Off with the 2017 Distinguished Service Award. The Honorable Katherine Cooper introduced Doug, sharing stories of his invaluable mentorship when she first started practicing law at Jennings Strouss, his unwavering professionalism, and his commitment to his family. Doug was the longest-serving President of the AADC, due to his assumption of Barry Fish’s term after Barry lost his battle with ALS. One of the contributions Doug values most about his time serving the AADC is creating the Barry Fish Memorial Golf Tournament to honor Barry’s legacy and to help raise funds toward the fight against ALS. The AADC also recognized Pat McGroder, who happens to be one of the first lawyers Doug worked with after graduating from law school. These two pillars in the Arizona legal community delighted attendees with stories from “way back when” and inspired the entire crowd to take pride in our noble profession. Congratulations to Doug on this great honor and thank you for your Distinguished Service!
