Duke can identify issues well before the client even knows there’s a problem. But it’s his real-world experience and practical approach that gives him a unique perspective and insight into his clients’ issues and enables him to offer a blend of legal experience and practicality to complement his approach to family law.
Duke was born in Vietnam and raised in Oakland, CA. He graduated from California State University East Bay with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. He earned his Juris Doctor from Valparaiso University Law School.
