As first time in legal issue, Dorie was very responsive to my many questions. She was prompt with any emails I sent her. She was very reassuring and supportive, alleviating my fears as well as understanding my frustration with the lengthy and convoluted process that is the Indiana legal system.
Dorie represented me in a Class B Criminal Mischief case. I actually just left the courthouse and thought I'd write this review to ensure I wouldn't forget to give her the credit she deserves handling the case. I only had one court date and pled all the way down to 12 community service hours only. No probation, no classes, etc. She was very professional and friendly at the same time. Not to mention she dropped my legal fee's! Not to say that will necessarily happen for you but that's just a little insight to her character and honesty. Thanks Dorie!
Dorie represented me in an embezzelment case in which I had stolen over $83k from my employer to feed my gambling addiction.
She was realistic, sympathetic, and available any time I needed her. She made it a priority to make sure I kept living my life and that I was informed every step of the way.
I cant say enough good things about Dorie and while I hope to never have to utilize her services again, she would be the first person I'd call if I EVER got in trouble again!
You will not be sorry for hiring her and you can you can ask her for my contact information if need be. I'm proud to call Dorie not just my lawyer, but my friend!
Mrs. Maryan made us feel like we were her only client. She always made sure we was informed and she was truly caring to our situation. She gave us advice, that we followed and continued to follow up on our case. She was able to get us a favorable outcome. Had we not had her to represent our son, we would have been completly in the dark, and still be paying the price for a 1st. time misdemeanor.
One thing I can state about Dorothy is very due diligent and engaged. Her representation was very professional and she was able to get my charges expunged. You have made my family very happy Dorothy ~ Your are awesome!
Found Dorie after reading several reviews of Indianapolis criminal defense lawyers. Sooooo glad I went with her to represent my 19 year old son. Can't imagine there is anyone better in the city!
Long story short this lady knows her stuff too bad I didnt get to see her in action since my loser ex didnt even bother to show up to court you cant go wrong with Dorothy
I had a case were the u.s postal service took my money i sent through mail. From the first time i talked to Dorie she was on top of everything. Always kept me in the loop with whats going on, great communication, just an all around great experience. Would definitely recommend her.
I originally contacted Dorie when my ex filed a complaint against me and I was possibly facing very serious charges. The allegations against me were false and talking with Dorie I was very confident we would get the truth out. Fortunately charges were never filed and we did not have to fight that case. If we did I was 100% sure I had found the right lawyer. My ex kept at it and I did hire Dorie to handle a much less serious matter. In court Dorie was fearless and aggressive. Asking all the right questions to bring out the truth. She was well prepared and her understanding of the law is second to none. She is professional and cares about her clients. Her rates were reasonable and she was willing to work with me. We won in court that day and I couldn't be happier with her services.
She was impressive to deal with from our first conversation. Well versed in criminal law, she was straightforward with what our options were and the best way to handle the situation. We would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a trustworthy lawyer who we felt comfortable speaking with. She promptly returned all of our calls and emails and we could not have been more thrilled when dealing with Dorie.
