We hired Ms. Leal for a wrongful termination matter. We found her to be very knowledgeable and respected in her field. She was patient, understanding and honest with a strong work ethic. Ms. Leal has great communication skills, answered every question we had either by phone or email in a timely manner. We would not hesitate to recommend or hire her.

Like another review here says, I contacted six to eight lawyers looking for that free consultation they all claim to provide but it was only Dolores who actually responded to my inquiry. Her response was incredibly fast - within 30 minutes of my submission. We talked on the phone for about 20 minutes and said that she felt I had a valid claim so she asked me to come in to her office to see her. I arrived late to my appointment the following day and she welcomed me with open arms. I spent a little more than an hour with her going over the details of my case and she told me what my options were. She is very knowledgeable. She was patient and explained everything clearly. She did not rush me. She was a complete professional. I highly recommend her services. Top notch.

Last year I was involved in a lawsuit with a previous employer. Dolores Leal, came highly recommended by a family friend, so I hired her to represent me. Her accolades alone are quite impressive, but she was beyond helpful, incredibly thoughtful and constantly kept me in the loop. Dealing with legal matters can be so stressful, especially after someone has experience a trauma similar to the one I had to endure. It's been several months since we've settled out of court and she still responds to my emails and answers all of my questions. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

I had the experience of utilizing Ms. Leal in a recent wrongful termination case. She was most professional and very detail to analyze the circumstances of my case. At all time she kept me informed of the current status of the case.

I was recently terminated from my position and contacted (4) four other attorney offices and even walked into one office before I called Dolores' firm. Each attorney I called, I never made it past the receptionist despite all of their websites stating "Call for a free consultation". Instead, I was told "Let me take down your information and we'll have one of our attorneys review your case. If they believe you have a case, they'll call you".
When I called Allred Maroko Goldberg, I asked to speak with an attorney regarding a potential Unlawful Termination case. I was connected immediately to Dolores. Dolores not only took my call, but spent the next 20 minutes asking me different questions pertaining to my potential case. As my situation required me to make a relatively quick decision, I was hoping at the least if I could just speak to an actual attorney who could give me some legal guidance as to my rights, if my rights had been violated, and if I did have a case against my former employer, would it be worth putting me and my family through and for how long. Dolores not only took the time to address my concerns, but as importantly, took the time to really explain the legal aspects of my potential case. She was clear and direct, but never judgemental or in a hurry to dismiss me. She even took the time to return a follow-up message I had left her over a 3-day weekend. Feeling that the best situation for me was to not file litigation, Dolores gave me her honest feedback that was in my best interest.
I am very comfortable and confident recommending Dolores to anyone who may be seeking legal representation knowing that she will put her client and her client's best interest first above and before anything else.
