Providence, RI – Jane Duket, an attorney with Marasco & Nesselbush, LLP, has been named to the Board of Governors for the Rhode Island Association for Justice (RIAJ). Duket, a Providence area resident, joined Marasco & Nesselbush in 2011 and is a senior member of the firm’s personal injury and medical malpractice group.
Founded in 1970, the Rhode Island Association for Justice (formerly the Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association) represents 400 attorneys who are committed to strengthening the civil justice system by protecting citizens’ access to jury trials and opposing efforts to impose arbitrary caps on jury awards. In advancing its mission, the RIAJ works to ensure that any person who is injured or the survivors of those killed due to the misconduct or negligence of others can seek full justice in the courtroom.
“I was always taught to fight for those who may be unable to fight for themselves,” said Duket. “For me, that is the meaning of justice and why I chose to practice personal injury and medical malpractice law. I look forward to harnessing my passion for justice to help advance the important work of the RI Association for Justice.”
Marasco & Nesselbush co-founder Joseph P. Marasco, a former President of RIAJ and current board member, applauded Duket’s appointment to the Board of Governors. “Jane is a tireless fighter for her clients, and I know her energy and relentless pursuit of justice will make her an excellent board member for the Rhode Island Association for Justice.”
Duket received her undergraduate degree from Boston College in 2004 and graduated cum laude from Roger Williams University School of Law in 2010. She is admitted to the practice of law in the United States District Court, District of Rhode Island, and District of Massachusetts. In addition to her position on the Board of Governors of the Rhode Island Association for Justice, Duket is a member of the Rhode Island Bar Association and the Rhode Island Women’s Bar Association.
