Buckingham is pleased to announce that attorney Dustin Vrabel has been named the Firm’s Canton Office Partner-in-Charge. Vrabel assumes the reins from Joe Feltes, who served in the role for a decade.

Vrabel joined Buckingham’s Canton office in 2007. He is the practice area leader for the mergers and acquisitions group and is a member of the Firm’s Executive Committee. He serves as outside general counsel for many of our clients, advising them on a broad range of legal matters.

Vrabel earned his B.S. in Accounting and Finance from Miami University in Ohio, and received his Juris Doctor from Brooklyn Law School in New York in 2007. Vrabel serves on the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and is the past Chairman of Brookside Country Club. He is a 2009 graduate of Leadership Stark County.

“Dustin is an excellent choice for the Canton office’s next chapter, further advancing our strategic initiatives,” said Steve Dimengo, Buckingham’s Managing Partner. “He is extremely passionate about our strength in the Stark County market and beyond. He has contributed significantly to our growth there, not only with business development but also in our recruitment efforts. I am confident he will continue to grow and develop our team, as well as to foster our great culture – all in service to our clients as the preeminent business law firm in the area.”

 “I would like to thank Joe Feltes for his many years of quite productive service as Office Partner-in-Change in our Canton office,” said Steve Dimengo. “He was instrumental in building our new 10,000-square-foot office in 2019. Joe is a fixture in the Canton community, and his involvement with organizations like the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, The Canton Museum of Art, AultCare, and others has greatly helped enhance the connection that Buckingham has with important initiatives in the region.”
