You are here

While a student in law school, Joe Wrona began working for the Sierra Club Legal Defense Fund in Juneau, Alaska on some of the nation’s largest environmental litigation, including the Exxon Valdez oil spill actions. He returned to Alaska after law school and associated with the Anchorage law firm of Birch, Horton, Bittner & Cherot, before being named an Assistant District Attorney, and then Dillingham District Attorney for the State of Alaska. During his years as a felony prosecutor, Mr. Wrona came to feel at home in the courtroom.

In 1999, he returned to Utah to open a private law practice in Park City. 
He quickly became one of Park City’s busiest and most successful litigators, appearing in a broad range of cases involving complex real estate development and construction matters, contract and tort claims, as well as criminal defense. Wrona DuBois Law Firm has grown under his supervision to include multiple attorneys with diverse practice areas working from Wrona DuBois Law Firm's offices in Park City, Heber City and Draper.

Mr. Wrona is a veteran of over 100 trials. He represents a broad range of client interests on both sides of the Wasatch Mountains.  When he is not in the courtroom or managing his clients’ legal needs, Joe can be found skiing, biking or guiding backcountry trips.
