Amazing attorney!
Mr. Dross is one of the best attorneys I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is patient, knowledge, and ALWAYS reachable. He was always prepared in court and was very accurate in his predictions about the moves of the opposing counsel. He’s a family man and throughout the process I could tell his work is his PASSION. I went from having a false DV claim filed against me, being arrested for said false claim, losing all visitation with my kids to a full dismissal and complete freedom with my children! It was due to the incredible work of Mr. Dross!

Attorney Arique Dross-"Heart & Heat"
Attorney Arique Dross represented me and walked me through an harassment charge I had against a family member. He fought for me and was extremely assertive with the opposing counsel. In addition to being assertive and a fierce opponent, he is also an incredible father, husband and family man. He has heart at home and heat in the court room. What more can I say? Thank you Attorney Arique Dross.

Highly recommend. Professional, and great experience. Dealing with my situation, Arique’s performance gave me confidence and hope, for a situation most people would fold under. I’m extremely happy with the outcome, and cannot thank Him and The Dross Law firm enough.

Excellent service!
Mr. Dross went above and beyond for me! Whenever I had a question or an issue he promptly answered. He was willing to work with my situation. I never felt like I was “just another case”. He made me feel like I had all of his time, attention, and efforts! He got my case resolved in a timely manner and made me feel heard in court.

Arique Dross is a gentleman, a rock and as dedicated as could be
I want to begin by addressing the fact that Arique Dross has been such an invaluable asset, after the most traumatic experience of my life. I have been in what feels like a period of turmoil and disarray, and was seeking counsel for a painful event from my past - a restraining order to help push for an arrest in the criminal case of a serial abuser that is now facing two separate l cases at same time (needless to say he is guilty and Arique never doubted me). Arique Dross tirelessly worked with me; he has advocated for my rights, needs, and assisted in my struggles to build myself back up again. I have experienced a considerable amount of trauma, and A Dross was able to work with me as I continued to experience responses to that trauma. I was difficult, reactive, had and have remnants of ptsd - and Dross showed me true grace and class in how he handled me. The event has rattled me to my core, so I can’t imagine I have always been the easiest of clients, but Dross has worked with me with a level of professionalism that I cannot appreciate enough. I am so thankful that Arique Dross has worked tirelessly to assist me in working through each and every step of my case. His attention to detail and work has helped steady me in a time of crisis and insecurity. Dross has worked relentlessly, and thanks to the consistent work he has done, has led to a restraining order being issued for my offender. I cannot thank him enough for all that he has done for me, the justice he has helped serve, and the work he has poured himself into for clients like me.

Mr.Dross is the best!
If I could give Mr. Dross 100 stars I would. He recently helped me with a complicated custody battle. He is a great lawyer and was always there for me. He helped me immensely and was so generous with his time. He always responded to me when I had a question, listened to me and gave me intelligent advice. I felt cared for and protected with him as my lawyer. Thank you Mr.Dross for everything!

When there is a issue call this man !!!
First off I want to thank Mr. Dross for taking my case in quickly and professionally . I consulted with 2 lawyers prior about a matter and I felt like it went nowhere, a consult with Mr. Dross was easy and straight to the point without bias. He explains things in detail and also listens in detail, I wish I knew Mr. Dross earlier in life as a lawyer to take care of any and all my legal inquires. Thanks a million Mr. Dross I will forever be thankful of your services .
