  • Robert Francis Kohlman

    I have worked with Dolly for more than a decade--first when I hired her as an associate and later as a partner. I always say that hiring her was one of the best decisions I ever made. She is a lawyer's lawyer who is not afraid to go to court, but who has an ability to settle difficult cases without arduous litigation. (One of the reasons she is also a certified mediator). I cannot recommend Dolly highly enough.

    Dolly's dedication to her clients is unwavering. Dolly has built a distinguished career by dedicating herself to the most effective, original, and creative arguments to best represent her clients. She is also committed to keeping clients informed at every step and exercising all measures to maintain a cost effective and agreeable resolution so as to avoid lengthy litigation. Many of my colleagues and I have referred Dolly cases because we know that she exemplifies the compassion, determination, ingenuity, and intellectual capability to motor the hardest cases to success. In addition to her abundant accomplishments in the courtroom, Dolly has become a true leader in the South Florida legal community and the broader family law practice at a national level. She has spoken at conferences to audiences in the thousands. It is not surprising that Dolly was recently peer reviewed as one of the top three divorce lawyers under the age of 40 in South Florida.
