There was little question about what career Judge Eric DuBois would pursue as a child. With a father and two uncles as lawyers, it’s almost like the law ran in his blood. In his younger years, Judge DuBois even dressed up in his three-piece suit and carried his dad’s briefcase as he followed him to work for the day. And, now, years later, he’s making his family proud as an Orange County judge here in the Ninth. Tune in to Open Ninth to hear more about what it was like growing up around the law and why he wanted to join the bench.
