Firm Overview

Our firm's two principal attorneys, Donald E. Duba and Christopher J. Duba, have been proudly practicing together since 2006. Brothers Don and Chris grew up in Grand Rapids as members of the third generation of the "Duba's Restaurant" fine dining family, and establishing a legal practice dedicated to assisting other business owners in the area was a natural progression for them. The extended Duba family enjoys deep roots in the Grand Rapids community, and Don and Chris can easily relate to and assist their clients with many of the local issues and challenges that those clients face on a daily basis with their business interests, family matters and legal needs. Both Don and Chris are also actively involved in several local organizations and boards which provide them even more local contacts and resources.

Prior to forming Duba & Duba, Don and Chris had provided very similar and compatible legal services for a combined 25 years - primarily in the West Michigan area. Don established his local client base as a partner with Flickinger, Plachta, Murphy & Duba, P.C. in Grand Rapids. Chris practiced in the corporate, commercial real estate and banking areas for several years in Chicago with Chapman and Cutler before returning home to Michigan in 2001 to join the Grand Rapids firm, Varnum, Riddering, Schmidt & Howlett. Chris remains licensed to practice law in Illinois.

Our firm has established a superb reputation with our clients and in the legal profession. Our attorneys are reliable and ethical; and we pride ourselves on our professionalism. We are recognized leaders and respected as an exceptional law firm within the community as we strive to guide our clients through complex business matters and reasonable solutions. With the growing professional and administrative team at Duba & Duba, our firm is positioned to provide competent, efficient and timely legal services on a personal level. In addition, the manageable firm size at Duba & Duba also allows our legal services to be provided at a competitive rate.

Our firm also maintains strong personal relationships with other specialized lawyers and service providers in the West Michigan area, and throughout the State and across the country. As a result, our attorneys are able to work collaboratively with such specialized or regional attorneys and service providers if needed to address or transition any relevant particular need of our clients.
