DOUGLAS DUBÉ is admitted to practice before all the state courts of California, as well as the Southern, Central and Northern United States District Courts and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He formed DUBÉ LAW OFFICE in January, 2014, after the dissolution of the partnership Bacalski, Ottoson & Dubé LLP.
Licensed in 1995, Doug has over twenty years of experience as an attorney. Presently, approximately 60 percent of his practice is in probate and trust litigation. The balance of his practice is a variety of civil litigation and appeals, including business disputes, attorney malpractice claims, defense of employers, and real property disputes. As a litigator, Doug has extensive experience in trial preparation, arbitration and mediation, and appeals, and has appeared in federal and state courts representing corporate and individual clients.
Prior to attending law school Doug worked for approximately ten years for manufacturing companies in upstate New York, including more than six years in mid-level management positions. Because of his previous corporate experience, Doug views legal problems from a business perspective, with an eye to resolving business disputes based on economic efficiency. Above all he is extremely analytic and a creative problem solver.
Doug has an undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from SUNY Canton, and graduated with honors from California Western School of Law in 1994.
