    • I recommend Juan Dotson.
    • I hired Juan 1-3 years ago.
    • Juan handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Very few times do you find an attorney like Mr. Dotson. He is very caring and knowledgeable. As a real estate office we deal with various situations ourselves but also have clients in need of an attorney. He has not failed us nor the clients we have recommended. He is extremely thorough and very responsive - we deal directly with him and no matter how busy he seems to be, he will always respond. He is highly recommended!

    • I recommend Juan Dotson.
    • I hired Juan more than 3 years ago.
    • Juan handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    Mr. Dotson, throughout the whole time he was helping me, was tremendously friendly and helpful. I received a ticket for marijuana possession and Mr. Dotson managed to have it dismissed with 25 Narcotics Anonymous classes. Mr. Dotson also helped me with immigration issues regarding exiting/entering the United States. I am truly grateful for his service.

    • I recommend Juan Dotson.
    • I hired Juan more than 3 years ago.
    • Juan handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I met Juan when he answered a Craig’s list ad to sublet my house for two months while I was to be out of the country. He didn’t end up staying at my place, but in our short meeting together I learned two important things. First, that he was an immigration lawyer. Second, and more importantly, that he could be trusted. Juan is one of those people who wears his goodness and responsibility on the outside.

    One month later, when I was waiting at the airport for a flight to Denmark, I remembered that Juan had said to call him anytime, so I did. I was about to get married in Lithuania and realized that I just might need his help, soon. But more than that, what I needed at that moment was his calming reassurance that he could handle every curve that the immigration process was sure to present. For the next ten months, Juan was my lawyer and security blanket. He was almost always available when I called or Emailed and if he wasn’t he got back to me soon. He never let me down and he was always there. He made me feel like I was the most important client he had. He even called me during a trial recess, more than one, which reassured me that my faith in him was well placed.

    For those of you who have had a relative immigrate to the US, you know how stressful the whole process can be. It can be overwhelming. Juan kept my anxiety in check. His “bedside” manner was faultless. For those of you who are considering bringing a relative to the US or anyone through immigration, I recommend Juan Dotson completely, because I trust him completely. Juan gives lawyers a good name. In fact he gives humanity a good name. And I don’t think I can emphasize that enough. Juan is a knowledgeable lawyer who gets the job done, but most of all, he truly cares. And he does his best to never let you forget it.

    If this sounds like a love letter, it is. Because of Juan, I am now married to the love of my life. My new wife, her ten-year-old twins and I are living in the same house, where I first met Juan. And I can say with all honesty, it wouldn’t have happened without him… although my wife did have a bit to do with it.

    Thank you Juan. And I promise that the barbeque, that I have been promising for six months is coming soon with the warm weather. I can’t wait for you to officially meet the (your) family.

    Warmest regards,

    Daniel Akin

    • I recommend Juan Dotson.
    • I hired Juan more than 3 years ago.
    • Juan handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was charged with marijuana possession. The gang cops got into my car without my permission. He believed in me, investigated the case, and got my case dismissed after he filed a motion. Thank you for the help.
