Jodi D. Dubose, Founding Attorney of the Firm’s Northern District Office, Becomes Shareholder – July 2022
Jodi D. Dubose - Shareholder
Jodi D. Dubose joined the firm in 2015. She received her J.D. from the University of Florida College of Law, where she interned for the Honorable Lewis M. Killian, Jr., Bankruptcy Judge, Northern District of Florida. Although SRBP had maintained a strong, but geographically remote, Northern District and Panhandle presence for decades – a presence that was greatly enhanced and was expanded to Alabama with the hiring of Edward J. Peterson in 2005, Jodi’s hiring was the primary impetus for SRBP’s opening of its downtown Pensacola office.
Since joining SRBP, Ms. Dubose has been instrumental in the firm’s expansion of its Northern District and Alabama practices. She actively represents debtors and other parties in insolvency cases and was chosen by the United States Trustee to serve as a Northern District Subchapter V Trustee upon the enactment of the Small Business Reorganization Act in 2019. She is a past president of the Northern District of Florida Bankruptcy Bar Association, the Escambia-Santa Rosa Bar Association and the Young Lawyers’ Division of the ESRBA. She was the Inaugural Chair of the Gulf Coast Network of the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC), and also serves on IWIRC International’s Executive Board. She has served on the Executive Council of the Business Law Section of the Florida Bar since 2011, chairing its Bankruptcy/UCC Committee, Bankruptcy Judicial Liaison Committee, Annual Retreat Committee, Membership Committee, and various study groups and task forces. She has also been recognized in many independent peer review surveys as a “Rising Star,”” Super Lawyer,” and “Up and Comer.” Ms. Dubose is also the recipient of IWIRC’s 2015 Rising Star Award and IWIRC Florida’s Emerging Leader Award.
