gave him 2500 retainer for a criminal case he wanted another 2000 before he would do anything. I then decided to see another attorney for a second opinion. Refused to give me a copy or even go over my police report before i paid him in full. Doesn't care about you only wants your money. Also refused to give me back any of my retainer when he only spent 4-5 hours on my case.
I hired this lawyer for a minor traffic ticket. I was charged $500 and was told it was dismissed only to find out later on the traffic ticket still shows up. Dowling doesn't care about the person he cares about the money and trying to get by. Tread with caution... I'm sure he probably doesn't screw everyone over, so just be careful.
