    • I recommend Emmanuel Dockter.
    • I hired Emmanuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Emmanuel handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Emmanuel came on board in my divorce 6 weeks prior to my divorce trial. He did an excellent job, and fought for my interests and children. He is not about the money, and has been very kind and workable with me. Divorce is not an easy thing, I had a very complex case. It does not matter how young an attorney is, the older ones are burned out, he was right on top of things, always returned my calls, and was very patient. So he does have experience, I would definately use him again, no doubt will have to. I had to fire my previous attorney, he had very bad attorney ethics. Court is not always fair, but Attorney Dockter follows the rules, in order to suceed you have to be a good client too, He is an excellent choice for family law, and will not mislead you, he does listen, and he is knowledgable.

    • I do not recommend Emmanuel Dockter.
    • I hired Emmanuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Emmanuel handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He did not represent my needs at all and was misinformed because he didn't listen. He kept a case going that I wanted settled, I believe, to get more money out of the situation.

    • I recommend Emmanuel Dockter.
    • I hired Emmanuel more than 3 years ago.
    • Emmanuel handled my Probate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Emmanuel is a wonderful Attorney. He is extremley intelligent, respectful and has an amazing insight to family law. He has taught me much through my process, and has put trust and faith back in me where Lawyers are concerned. Though young do not let that mislead you.

    He is very passionate in what he does. It comes of a place of truth, and his kindess comes from integrity not greed.

    The key ingredient aside from the laws which we must work with, is whomever you decide to hire and work with must understand you as well as an individual, there must be a common trust and respect, many attorneys are so beyond burned out, corrupt, and truly do not care about their clients, it is important of course to succeed financially, to establish a solid practice, but it is my belief after observing him in court and reaching out to others, your interests will be protected.

    Most attorneys do not return calls, cut you short, and do what "they want", he does not, I expect we will see "great things in the years to come" from him.

    I am a current client, so I speak from experience, and I have worked for several attorneys' in the past, I very much recommend him.
