Dorothy M. Dugue. Before joining the firm, and while attending law school, Ms. Dugue worked as a court officer and law clerk for a Philadelphia Common Pleas Court judge. Through that experience, she gained firsthand knowledge of the all aspects of the civil ligation process and procedures. In addition to managing administrative matters in the courtroom for the judge, she supervised jury selection and wrote legal briefs and memoranda. Ms. Dugue’s exceptional knowledge has also been recognized by the Philadelphia Bar association when she recently served as a panelist at a CLE presentation entitled “The Wild World of Jury Selection.”
Ms. Dugue is an advocate for Philadelphia’s underserved communities and is proud to have worked at The Elder Justice & Civil Resource Center, an organization that provides assistance to self-represented litigants who need help navigating the legal system. Her work at the EJCRC allowed her to put her passions for research, writing, problem solving and drafting well-crafted arguments to work for good causes.
Ms. Dugue received her B.A. in Criminal Justice and Sociology from Rutgers University and her J.D. from Rutgers University School of Law. She is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania.
