Returning for his sixth appearance at a NARSOL conference is the ever-popular attorney Paul Dubbeling. Paul is a former U.S. Army ranger and infantry officer. He attended law school on an army scholarship, graduated summa cum laude from Indiana University in Bloomington in 2005, and then served as a JAG attorney for six years, including two tours in Afghanistan. After leaving the army, Paul clerked for Judge Neil M. Gorsuch (now a Justice of the United States Supreme Court) before earning his MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and going into private practice. Since then, Paul successfully prosecuted Does v. Cooper, a federal lawsuit which struck down much of North Carolina’s previous premises restrictions, and is currently lead counsel for NARSOL’s legal challenge to the North Carolina registration laws, Does v. Stein. Paul serves as NARSOL’s attorney and general counsel.
Attendees at NARSOL’s previous five conferences are not the only ones with high praise for Paul. This is from a former client:
What I found most helpful was the fact that he took the time to explain the situation and process to me when no else up to this point could or would do so. It’s one thing to know and apply the law, and I’m sure many attorneys do, but Mr. Dubbeling is more than just a living-breathing reference source. He’s an advisor/counselor as much as he is a legal expert, and this sets him apart from his colleagues. When you’re in a situation that you’re not familiar with, and someone talks you through the process like Mr. Dubbeling did for me, it is a HUGE weight lifted in terms of anxiety and stress.
Paul’s topic this year is Litigation Update. He will be speaking to us about the status of NARSOL’s litigation as well as other litigation affecting our issues.
NARSOL is both pleased and proud to welcome Paul Dubbeling to our 2022 conference.
