Review Douglas Dolfman

  • Very Please

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Cathy

    We hired Doug for criminal charge in defense of my younger brother. To say the least, Doug is an remarkable attorney. He did a noteworthy job in defense of my younger brother who made a very serious mistake. These cases are never solved overnight and communication, we felt was very important. Doug was always available to answer questions/concerns, while streamlining all information regarding my brother's case as it became readily available. For the work and efforts Doug applied to this case his fee was more than fair. If you need a criminal attorney who will fight to get charges reduced at a fair rate-- you would be making a huge mistake not to employ Doug for the job.

    After being charged with my first criminal offense, I was scared out of my mind. Came onto avvo.com and found Doug who called me the day after (on a Sunday morning) assuring me everything was going to be all right. We met up to discuss my case and he kept assuring me everything would be fine. Got back from court today with great news, all thanks to Doug who was incredibly friendly with not only me but the arresting officer and the judge.

    All in all, if you want a professional who you can relate to at a personal level, look no further.

  • Excellent Attorney

    I hired Mr. Dolfman to represent my boyfriend in a very serious gun and robbery case. From the beginning Mr. Dolfman did a great job communicating with me and the entire family. He kept us all up to date throughout the entire process and was always accessible via phone and email. Mr. Dolfman always told us what to expect and we were never left in the dark about anything. Ultimately, we were fortunate that we won the case at trial. Mr. Dolfman is an excellent trial lawyer. I will refer Mr. Dolfman to anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney. He should be anyone's 1st choice in Philadelphia, to hire, if you need representation in a criminal case!

    Absolutely a horrible lawyer. I think he should be disbarred. I may never get to see my loved one again because he didn't bother to prepare a proper defense. To get money he assured that we had a good case. Once paid he never met with anyone. Never interviewed anyone to build a case. There was 3 witnesses that were not called. I am now getting sick and can not travel to see my loved one. That man took my money and allowed a man to get put in jail for putting himself in a bad situation, but not the one he was charged for. I won't even be able to say goodbye. I guess if he would have shot someone or was a drug dealer he would have gotten off. He shouldn't have paid this price for foolish. This man didn't care about his family at all

    Douglas Lee Dolfman’s response: “This review is completely fiction. In the 21 years I have been practicing, there has never been a case in which I have not interviewed a witness or be prepared to try a case. It seems that this reviewer is more upset about the result of this matter that a relative is incarcerated a distance away from her. I am not even familiar with who this person is who seems to criticize the result whatever it was without any specifics in relation to what the client may have or may not have done. If the result of the trial or hearing was unacceptable to the client or his or her family, they always have the right to appeal to a higher court. I do not know if this was done in this case. I am sorry if the reviewer did not get the result that was expected, but no promises are ever made in how a case is going to turn out.”

    I met with Doug to discuss a case I had several months ago. He insisted that my case was a strong one and we had to act fast! I did exactly what he said and hired him for $2500 cash. I never received a receipt and when I asked for one he said the email exchange between us was "good enough." I tried meeting with him several times to discuss any advances in the case to which he never showed up nor picked up my calls. After months of the run around I haven't received any information. I listened to everything he said and acted fast and at no point did I ever feel I was even a priority to him. Make sure you do more research before making the same mistake I did.

    Douglas Lee Dolfman’s response: “This client had a claim that at first looked promising but after investigation it was not the type of case that would have been successful. The underlying case was not fully investigated by the local police department and because of their reluctance to pursue the matter we did not move forward with the case. Communication on my end was complete but could have done a better job keeping up with the client on developments.”

  • The most effective and positive-outcome-capable representation in Philadelphia

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    Mr. Dolfman is trustworthy, communicative, and unparalleled in his knowledge, approach and execution of criminal defense. Mr. Dolfman represented me on three Violations Of Probation (VOP) all of which I was guilty of, and expected to be held fully responsible to the fullest extent of the law. On each and every account, Mr. Dolfman met personally, with me and my family, while I was incarcerated and paid close attention to the details of my case. He achieved amazing results, keeping me from receiving state-time, while at the same time placing me in rehabilitative programs that allowed me to become a better person and excel after my my release, both personally and professionally. I faced over 17 years for my violations and with Mr. Dolfman's representation I'm on track for early termination of probation with no state-time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mr. Dolfman as an attorney!

  • A+ Philadelphia legal representation!

    Doug is by far the best attorney I have ever had experience with. He assured me that my eviction case was going to go smoothly and in my favor and he was right. If Doug tells you something, there's no need to doubt or question it. He really knows his stuff! I'm convinced that if any other attorney took my case, the outcome would've been different. I very highly recommend Mr. Dolfman and look forward to his ongoing representation in my case. If you're in the Philadelphia area and in need of legal representation, Doug is hands down the one to hire. Not only is he an excellent attorney, but his mild manner and positive attitude have helped me to also consider him a friend. Thank you Doug!

    Doug Dolfman recently represented my family member in a violation of probation matter. He provided excellent work for my family and I. He was very knowledgeable, caring, prompt, and when we thought there was no way my family member could get his detainer lifted, Doug pulled through!!!!! He is truly a great lawyer does his best with every case!

    Doug represented a family member of mine and we could not be more thankful to have chosen him for representation. He is extremely professional and very easy to work with. My family member was facing major gun and narcotics charges and Doug did everything he could to make sure we had a successful outcome. We could all tell that he was very invested in the case and he was always prepared. He was respectful and offered a great service for a reasonable price. If you want to win your case, choose Doug. You will be glad you did!
