Attorney Sean DuBois Understands How to Protect Your Rights

Founded in 2008, DuBois Law Group has remained dedicated to justice and fair compensation for clients who have been injured.

Sean is a Rising Star Super Lawyer

Sean has been named an Oregon Rising Star every year since 2009 (5 Years in a Row!).

Avvo.com, a prominent attorney referral site, has also given Sean a rating of 10.0 out of 10.0 in the fields of Experience, Industry Recognition, and Professional Conduct.

Dedicated to Client Care

Sean founded DuBois Law Group with the understanding that clients will come first and chose the motto “Fewer Cases. Better Results” to emphasize a commitment to making sure each case gets the attention it deserves.

After college, Sean began to see his friends burn out at big law firms helping rich corporations get richer, and decided to explore other options before devoting his life to the law.

For a time, he chose to pursue his love of nature and the outdoors, spending the better part of a decade living as simply as he could all over the western United States and then in Hawaii and Florida, even working as a research diver at Florida Atlantic University’s Department of Ocean Engineering. Through this experience, he saw up close how corporate greed and irresponsibility were ruining the naturally beautiful places he called home. It made him think more broadly about the need to protect people and the environment from the excesses of corporate power.

So, he decided to return to his previous calling and use his skills to help those that have suffered an unfair personal injury. You can read more about the experiences of Sean’s clients in the Testimonials.

Experience and Education

A successful competitive debater in high school, Sean attended college at the best debate school in the nation on a debate scholarship. For law school, he attended the award-winning, local Lewis & Clark Law School.

During law school, Sean went to work for some of the best personal injury attorneys in Oregon.  Following admittance to the Oregon Bar, Sean worked with a well-known senior personal injury attorney in Portland and then formed his own practice, DuBois Law Office.

While volunteering on a committee for the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), he met Joshua Shulman, a local personal injury attorney with a similar passion for representing deserving individuals fighting for justice. They joined forces and formed DuBois Law Group in 2008 which today is known as DuBois Law Group.

A husband and father, Sean is highly active in the Portland community, especially in his home neighborhood of Sellwood. His hobbies include gardening, sailing, travel, and spending time with his family.
