Prior to joining McOmber & McOmber, Mr. Luber was an associate at Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, one of Philadelphia’s largest and most prestigious law firms. Mr. Luber’s practice focused on complex civil litigation and white-collar matters. He represented clients in high stakes civil litigation as well those facing government investigations and prosecutions initiated by state Attorneys General and the Department of Justice. Mr. Luber has represented corporate clients across a variety of industries (ranging from Fortune 500 multinational corporations to closely held companies) as well as individual owners, directors, and managers in contract and business-tort disputes, employment matters, product liability litigation, and consumer class actions brought in state and federal courts across the country. For example, Mr. Luber defended a global oil company in an underlying product liability lawsuit brought in Pennsylvania state court arising out of serious injuries sustained by an employee using machinery at a chemical plant and brought suit in a related indemnification action in federal court in New York. Mr. Luber represented a global pharmaceutical company in two separate mass-tort litigations brought in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas deriving from injuries allegedly sustained by consumers who ingested prescription drugs. He has also represented manufacturers in federal court stemming from injuries sustained by workers exposed to asbestos. In addition, Mr. Luber has represented global telecommunications and software companies in nationwide class actions brought in state and federal court involving alleged deceptive and unfair trade practices and violations of various consumer protection laws.

Mr. Luber received his bachelor’s degree in Law and Justice Studies from The College of New Jersey (“TCNJ”). While at TCNJ, Mr. Luber spent a semester with the late Hon. Clarence C. Newcomer, United States District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and was the captain of TCNJ’s Men’s Varsity Soccer Team, a two-time Collegiate All American, and a candidate for ESPN The Magazine‘s Academic All-America Team. After college, Mr. Luber returned to Philadelphia and earned his Juris Doctor degree from Temple University Beasley School of Law. During law school, he litigated personal injury cases on behalf of the South Eastern Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and interned for the Hon. L. Felipe Restrepo, United States District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Mr. Luber has spent his entire life in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area. After spending early childhood in Northeast Philadelphia, his parents Al and Maureen moved the Luber family to Delran, New Jersey. Mr. Luber graduated from Delran’s public high school where he participated on the school’s mock trial team. From a young age, Mr. Luber’s uncle, a longtime clerk at a federal court in Philadelphia, showed him around the courtroom and introduced him to some of the most respected lawyers and judges in the area. Those experiences, coupled with an inherent desire to help others, lead him to a career in law.
Mr. Luber currently lives in Medford, New Jersey with his wife Kimberly, a neonatal intensive care nurse, their daughter Victoria and son Leo. On weekends, you often find Mr. Luber on the soccer field, in the hockey rink, or scrambling his way through a golf course. He enjoys spending time with family, friends, and his dog Aubrey.
