    Hired attorney

    Absolutely a horrible lawyer. I think he should be disbarred. I may never get to see my loved one again because he didn't bother to prepare a proper defense. To get money he assured that we had a good case. Once paid he never met with anyone. Never interviewed anyone to build a case. There was 3 witnesses that were not called. I am now getting sick and can not travel to see my loved one. That man took my money and allowed a man to get put in jail for putting himself in a bad situation, but not the one he was charged for. I won't even be able to say goodbye. I guess if he would have shot someone or was a drug dealer he would have gotten off. He shouldn't have paid this price for foolish. This man didn't care about his family at all

    Douglas Lee Dolfman’s response: “This review is completely fiction. In the 21 years I have been practicing, there has never been a case in which I have not interviewed a witness or be prepared to try a case. It seems that this reviewer is more upset about the result of this matter that a relative is incarcerated a distance away from her. I am not even familiar with who this person is who seems to criticize the result whatever it was without any specifics in relation to what the client may have or may not have done. If the result of the trial or hearing was unacceptable to the client or his or her family, they always have the right to appeal to a higher court. I do not know if this was done in this case. I am sorry if the reviewer did not get the result that was expected, but no promises are ever made in how a case is going to turn out.”

    Hired attorney

    I met with Doug to discuss a case I had several months ago. He insisted that my case was a strong one and we had to act fast! I did exactly what he said and hired him for $2500 cash. I never received a receipt and when I asked for one he said the email exchange between us was "good enough." I tried meeting with him several times to discuss any advances in the case to which he never showed up nor picked up my calls. After months of the run around I haven't received any information. I listened to everything he said and acted fast and at no point did I ever feel I was even a priority to him. Make sure you do more research before making the same mistake I did.

  • The most effective and positive-outcome-capable representation in Philadelphia

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Mr. Dolfman is trustworthy, communicative, and unparalleled in his knowledge, approach and execution of criminal defense. Mr. Dolfman represented me on three Violations Of Probation (VOP) all of which I was guilty of, and expected to be held fully responsible to the fullest extent of the law. On each and every account, Mr. Dolfman met personally, with me and my family, while I was incarcerated and paid close attention to the details of my case. He achieved amazing results, keeping me from receiving state-time, while at the same time placing me in rehabilitative programs that allowed me to become a better person and excel after my my release, both personally and professionally. I faced over 17 years for my violations and with Mr. Dolfman's representation I'm on track for early termination of probation with no state-time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Dolfman as an attorney!

  • A+ Philadelphia legal representation!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Lisa

    Doug is by far the best attorney I have ever had experience with. He assured me that my eviction case was going to go smoothly and in my favor and he was right. If Doug tells you something, there's no need to doubt or question it. He really knows his stuff! I'm convinced that if any other attorney took my case, the outcome would've been different. I very highly recommend Mr. Dolfman and look forward to his ongoing representation in my case. If you're in the Philadelphia area and in need of legal representation, Doug is hands down the one to hire. Not only is he an excellent attorney, but his mild manner and positive attitude have helped me to also consider him a friend. Thank you Doug!

He is truly a great lawyer does his best with every case!

  • Great Philadelphia Lawyer!!

    Doug represented a family member of mine and we could not be more thankful to have chosen him for representation. He is extremely professional and very easy to work with. My family member was facing major gun and narcotics charges and Doug did everything he could to make sure we had a successful outcome. We could all tell that he was very invested in the case and he was always prepared. He was respectful and offered a great service for a reasonable price. If you want to win your case, choose Doug. You will be glad you did!

  • BEST CRIMINAL LAWYER IN PHILADELPHIA

    5.0 stars

    Posted by D.F.

    Doug Dolfman represented my boyfriend in a major drug case, he was referred to us by a friend of ours that he had gotten early parole. Mr. Dolfman visited my boyfriend in prison the very first weekend after being retained. He kept us informed at all times by updating me on the phone and he always responded quickly to letters. Doug was very passionate, and displayed an extensive knowledge of Philadelphia Law and the Justice System. I was extremely happy with the outcome of my boyfriend's case, after Doug got some of the charges dismissed, most of the time he received was time-served. During the time my boyfriend was incarcerated I was very worried and scared but Doug's staff was always very kind, patient, caring and helpful. Overall Doug is definitely the BEST CRIMINAL LAWYER IN PHILADELPHIA!
