ALUMNI PROFILE
Doug Davert, Attorney

After struggling a bit as a freshman at Cal State Fullerton, Doug Davert made the switch to Santa Ana College and found his route to success as a political science and legal major. He has since gone on to a very successful career as an attorney with a strong commitment to community involvement.

Doug was very familiar with the campus because his mother taught English and education at SAC for some 30 years. He remembers attending numerous basketball and football games as a kid growing up in nearby Tustin.

While at SAC, Doug particularly remembers the role played by his criminal justice professor, George Wright, who he subsequently studied under again at Chapman University where he transferred after graduating from Santa Ana College in 1985. Doug went on to earn his law degree at Loyola Law School.

"At Santa Ana College, I found an environment that enabled me to overcome a false start at college," Doug observed. "And Professor Wright helped me get my act together and onto the right path for a career in law. A lot of people simply aren't ready for the four-year college experience right out of high school. Santa Ana College is a great place to cut your teeth and decide what you truly want to do."

Doug is now a partner in the law firm of Davert & Loe, which specializes in real estate, land use and business matters. He also has been and continues to be highly active in his community and profession. A Tustin resident since 1968, with a wife and two daughters, Doug has served as mayor and is currently a member of the City Council, Chamber of Commerce, and Senior Center Fund. He was also a member, vice-chairman and chairman of the Tustin Planning Commission and involved with the Old Town Association, Council for Fine Arts, Pride Committee, Community Block Grants program, Community Foundation, and Public Schools Foundation. Plus, he is a graduate of the Tustin Police Department's Citizens Police Academy.

On the county level, Doug is a director of the Sanitation District, Fire Authority, and Airport Land Use Commission. He is also a board member of the California Identification Remote Access Network and volunteers with the Professional Service Reserve of the Sheriff's Department.

And that's not all. Doug has been active in the League of California Cities, the Southern California Association of Governments and the United States Conference of Mayors. He is a judge pro-tem in the Long Beach/Los Angeles Superior Courts and has been a judge for the moot court competition at Chapman University School of Law.

Doug is a prime example of the vital role Santa Ana College has played in the lives of so many people as they found their way to personal and professional success.
