Michael J. DuPont

Shareholder minneapolis

The managing shareholder at WFJ, Michael DuPont leads a talented team of professionals who serve a broad range of clients — be they individuals, small businesses or Fortune 100 companies — in innovative and forward-thinking ways. He grew up wanting to be a lawyer, believing it was his duty to “protect those who need protection,” and that a career in law was the best way to do so. Now, he uses that passion to help clients solve problems in the complex commercial and residential construction markets.

Michael leads a full life outside WFJ, as well. A father to three wonderful kids, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, salt-water fishing, golfing and reading a good book.
