PRO Attorney Mr. DUBE'
Mr. DUBE' was prepared before we walked into his office. He takes a lot of time to ask questions and he listens, he explains processes and with his calm demeanor you feel confident. He confers with outside counsel to take best course of action. He cares and is a true professional. With much graditude and respect we give Doug Dube' esq. Attorney, the highest of recommendation. Great guy!

A True Professional
Mr. Dube' represented me in regards to my being sued by my brother. At our mother's request, I had been appointed Trustee of my brother's Special Needs trust for the previous 7 years. My brother has had a 60 year history of mental problems…diagnosed with manic depressive, obsessive compulsive disorders. He had been in and out of mental facilities for the past 40 years. Sadly this suit was depleting my brother's trust (his only means of support). Mr. Dube' stood by me with level headed advise and respect for my decisions. Mr. Dube' saw me thru the emotional ups and downs that were ever present, as is the case with most all legal entanglements. His fees were surprisingly reasonable due to his level headed handling of issues. His demeanor was one of respect for all involved. His gift is keeping our legal responses from fueling an already difficult situation. If what you want to pay for is a glitzy office and original paintings on the walls this is not an attorney for you. Mr. Dube' avoided a hostel environment where ever possible ~ knowing it would do harm to all involved and serve only to fuel higher attorney bills. Yet his strength was brought to the surface when needed to represented me with dignity. I can not recommend this professional more highly than letting you know that I will continue to recommend Mr. Dube' to my acquaintances and friends.

Doug Dube, Attorney, more importantly, nice man
I would highly recommend Doug Dube as an attorney. Doug is personable, caring, a family man, has a sense of humor and is a kind person. Doug represented us in a difficult case and did so in a professional manner. I felt very confident and actually proud when walking with him in to court. Doug holds himself well. While I am excited that the case is practically over, I will miss him. I wish him much happiness, a wonderful Christmas with his family and more importantly that he and his wife do well in their marathon.
