    Andrew is one of the most talented lawyers that you can find. His best asset is knowing his cases better then anyone else in the courtroom. His record speaks for its self. He is a true fighter, consider yourself lucky if he is available to take your case. I, as an attorney, would not hesitate one minute in having him represent me or a family member, this is how confident I am in his work!

  • Michael Ralph Notaro

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Andrew Dosa for over 20 years, both personally and professionally, and we have worked together on numerous legal matters. Andrew is an articulate, thoughtful and effective attorney. He has excellent communication skills; he listens, speaks and writes well. Most importantly, he knows when to speak and when to listen. He is methodical and meticulous in his preparation which gives him an advantage over other attorneys. We worked together on a complex partnership dissolution, and the arbitrator, a retired San Francisco Superior Court Judge with over 30 years on the bench, was visibly impressed with Andrew’s advocacy skills. Andrew maintained a professional demeanor that won the day, despite unprofessional tactics from opposing counsel. I heartily recommend Andrew Dosa to anyone in need of high quality legal representation.
