Jake Dziubla (JU-bluh) moved to Frederick County, Maryland in 2007 from his hometown of Valparaiso, Indiana, near Chicago. He earned his B.S. in Criminal Justice magna cum laude from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. Jake then received his J.D. from the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.

While in law school, an independent law journal published a paper authored by Jake that analyzed the intersection between housing laws, the police, and mental illness. Jake also interned at Maryland Legal Aid during his second and third years, where he negotiated settlements, performed complex research assignments, and represented a client in a summary ejectment proceeding. In addition, through the Youth, Education, and Justice Clinic, Jake represented Maryland public school students facing disciplinary and behavioral proceedings.

Jake’s practice areas include:

• Business torts;
• Commercial debt collection;
• Construction litigation;
• Contract drafting and litigation;
• Employment litigation;
• Landlord/tenant litigation; and
• Lender liability;

Notable examples of Jake’s services since joining the firm include successfully opposing a defendant’s motion to dismiss a complex mandamus action, participating in the mediation of longstanding out-of-state litigation, and deposing a state agency.

He is admitted to practice in Maryland state courts, as well as the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

Music is an important part of Jake’s life. He has perfect pitch, and plays the piano, guitar, and banjo in his spare time. He is also an avid fan of the Grateful Dead, ice hockey, and fishing.
