I have had to deal with a few lawyers over the years for family/child support matters, usually very disappointed with the promised service and expertise. I no longer live in MA but had to get a lawyer and not wanting to go back to the previous lawyer I had used, I went online and put in a few calls to attorneys, Emmanuel Dockter, called me within 15 mins of my original and it didn't stop there, he kept me informed every step of the way and represented the outcome of my case honestly and accurately. Emmanuel renewed my faith in dealing with an attorney, my case is done and children are all grown but if I were in the position to need an attorney again, he would definitely be my choice. I have to mention this, I also received the unused portion of my retainer back, never has that happened. I am very impressed with the honesty, thank you Emmanuel!

I highly recommend Mr. Dockter. The only reason I didn't put excellent for all rating is because he has room to grow, which one only gains through experience, which no doubt he will do. Where Mr. Dockter is younger he will become a truely excellent lawyer with time. But in the meantime he gains knowledge with his resources.
I saw an individual who cared for people.
One day in court a person needed help in figuring out which office to go to and Mr. Dockter took the time to help this person. I have seen too many people ignore people who need a helping hand but not Mr. Docktor he went out of his way to help them. I was proud to have a lawyer do that. I knew I had an excellent lawyer from that moment on.

Emmanuel came on board in my divorce 6 weeks prior to my divorce trial. He did an excellent job, and fought for my interests and children. He is not about the money, and has been very kind and workable with me. Divorce is not an easy thing, I had a very complex case. It does not matter how young an attorney is, the older ones are burned out, he was right on top of things, always returned my calls, and was very patient. So he does have experience, I would definately use him again, no doubt will have to. I had to fire my previous attorney, he had very bad attorney ethics. Court is not always fair, but Attorney Dockter follows the rules, in order to suceed you have to be a good client too, He is an excellent choice for family law, and will not mislead you, he does listen, and he is knowledgable.

He did not represent my needs at all and was misinformed because he didn't listen. He kept a case going that I wanted settled, I believe, to get more money out of the situation.

Emmanuel is a wonderful Attorney. He is extremley intelligent, respectful and has an amazing insight to family law. He has taught me much through my process, and has put trust and faith back in me where Lawyers are concerned. Though young do not let that mislead you.
He is very passionate in what he does. It comes of a place of truth, and his kindess comes from integrity not greed.
The key ingredient aside from the laws which we must work with, is whomever you decide to hire and work with must understand you as well as an individual, there must be a common trust and respect, many attorneys are so beyond burned out, corrupt, and truly do not care about their clients, it is important of course to succeed financially, to establish a solid practice, but it is my belief after observing him in court and reaching out to others, your interests will be protected.
Most attorneys do not return calls, cut you short, and do what "they want", he does not, I expect we will see "great things in the years to come" from him.
I am a current client, so I speak from experience, and I have worked for several attorneys' in the past, I very much recommend him.
