Posted by Jane, a Child Custody client,
Dorothy Spinelli is an absolutely wonderful attorney. She is very soft spoken, patient, kind and an excellent listener. However, don't let the soft voice fool you, she is a bold warrior in the court of law. She will NEVER give up. She is absolutely relentless, and will prevail. If it takes 1 day, 1 month or 10 years, she refuses to throw the towel in on a client. Once she sinks her teeth in, she works all kinds of crazy hours, early in the morning, late nights, and weekends anytime to prevail on a case. Her services are always on time, and she is absolutely dependable.
My life has depended on Dorothy in a number of family law situations, and without a doubt she always comes through. Not only is she EXTREMELY ethical, but she will gently and professionally keep a client on track. She is never condescending when explaining the law, and makes the most in-depth complex law very understandable.
She is very kind to work with, and very passionate about her cases--rare in the world of attorneys. I have worked with a number of attorneys over the years, and Dorothy, without a doubt, is a true professional. VERY RARE! She is the most detail oriented attorney I have ever met, and I have worked on a personal and professional basis with at least 15 attorneys. If she is not 100% clear on an item within the law, she will always either look it up, or cross reference to another attorney for amazing team oriented results. She has practiced extensively, and I would not hesitate to hire Dorothy on any level to represent me, whether it was family law, personal injury, or any type of criminal matter. She is an excellent attorney, and I state this with absolutely no reservation.
