    • I do not recommend Douglas Oberdorfer.

    I hired Doug a few years back to help me with a simple visitation and child support case. He told me it would cost about $1500 maybe less and will be done in a few months. I have been to court now 3 or 4 times and my case is worse then it has ever been. He now will not answer my calls, respond to my emails, and everything he said he would do he hasn't, my case has now cost me over $3000 and is still unresolved and we are going on 3.5 years

    • I recommend Douglas Oberdorfer.
    • I hired Douglas 1-3 years ago.
    • Douglas handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Doug has been my attorney since 2010. He has helped me with my child support and my ex wife denying me visitation of my children. We went to court for modification for my child support back in 2011. Doug did not like the judges decision so he filed an appeal and did all the work at little or no cost. Him and his office staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. They go above and beyond for their clients. As of today Doug is still my attorney as my ex wife still causes me grief and Doug and Stephanie are there every step of the way. Since I have hired Doug I will not even consider using another attorney. Even though I am probably a headache for him.

    • I recommend Douglas Oberdorfer.
    • I hired Douglas more than 3 years ago.
    • Douglas handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Just before I was scheduled to have major surgery I realized that my will and other estate documents were out of date. I called Mr Oberdorfer and asked if he could rewrite my will REALLY quickly. He was very understanding of my situation and found time to advise me and completely redo my will and other documents to my satisfaction. I was able to have surgery with one worry off my mind.

    I do not have the slightest bit of hesitation recommending Mr Oberdorfer for your family's legal needs.

  4. All he cared about was money and not the client

    I hired Doug a few years ago as he was my very first lawyer ever, I didn't know anything back then. He set up an amount in which how much my case would case. 11 Months later, I got a bill for $2,000. more then what was expected. He didn't fight for what I wanted. As he told me, "I go by the law!" So, asking to deviate for something isn't something he'll do. I got the worst order by the judge because Doug just didn't represent me as he should of. A lawyer should "fight" for you and what you want and the judge will decided the overall action. Very poor quality. DO NOT HIRE!!!
