Mr. Dube is admitted to practice in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts. He is an honors graduate of Rutgers College (1999) and Rutgers School of Law-Camden (2002). From September 2002 through August 2003, he served as an appellate law clerk to the Honorable Naomi G. Eichen, J.A.D. Mr. Dube joined the Firm as an associate in September 2003, representing parties in diverse areas such as personal injury, products liability, medical malpractice, first‐party insurance coverage, antitrust, employment, sports law, complex commercial litigation, copyright and trademark, and criminal law. In 2006 and 2007, after just a few years of practice, he was recognized as a Rising Star .

In 2008, Mr. Dube relocated with family to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and began working for a large law firm, where he represented plaintiffs in FINRA arbitrations (serving as assistant counsel to the individual who received the second-highest single-claimant award in FINRA history, $12,000,000) and defendants in sophisticated medical professional liability matters, insurance coverage matters, and high-exposure liquor liability litigation. Mr. Dube rejoined the Firm as of counsel in July 2011 and is thrilled to be back at the law firm at which he started his career. Since re-joining, Mr. Dube served as co-counsel to a plaintiff in a complex commercial arbitration that was awarded nearly $12,000,000, as well as intellectual property rights worth many millions more. Mr. Dube was recently selected for inclusion in the 2012 New Jersey Rising Stars list.

Mr. Dube has substantial expertise and experience in appellate practice and has successfully represented clients in the New Jersey Superior Court-Appellate Division, the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

He has been quoted in The Los Angeles Times, The Kentucky Herald-Leader, The Thoroughbred Times, and The New York Times , among other publications. A songwriter in his spare time, he has been a songwriter member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) since 2000.
