About Us


Habla Español?

The Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A. began with an understanding between two skilled legal professionals– J. Mark Dubose Jr. and  Gil Alba— who shared the desire to create a partnership dedicated to providing aggressive representation in a proficient manner, while also maintaining a uniquely personable approach to client relations. Following decades of combined personal achievement in the legal field, with the founding partners each having attained ownership status in their prior firms, the establishment of our firm can be described as a unique union of experience, persistence and understanding .

After practicing for nearly 2 decades, Mark left his Texas firm behind to become licensed in Florida following his wife’s acceptance to a residency program for orthopedic surgeons at University of Florida. Gil, a Florida native, and alumni of University of Central Florida and University of Florida remained in Florida following graduation, to accept a position as an attorney with a locally recognized Gainesville personal injury firm. Gil’s hard work and dedication quickly led to an invitation to become partner at his prior firm.

As experienced practitioners, Mark and Gil ventured out on their own, with the initial intention of being sole practitioners. That is, however, until the two crossed paths. Having the common vision to create a practice combining seasoned professional ability, aggressive representation, and effective results, while also providing an attentive approach to client relations, Mark and Gil immediately recognized that they wanted to work together. Thereafter, J. Mark Dubose, and Gil Alba, became the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A.

We eventually expanded our firm in 2013, by adding Karen S. Yochim as an esteemed member of our legal team. With more than 11 years of local practice experience in Family Law, Probate Law, and Estate Planning, Karen quickly became a valuable component to  our professional practice. In maintaining the same core values upon which our firm was founded, and given her proficiency, expertise, and experience, Karen has excelled as legal professional in our community. In 2014, Karen gladly accepted the offer to become a partner, and thereafter the firm became the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A.
