Satisfied client!
Thirty years later and the Dorsey Law Firm has been there for me. I’ve always received top professional service. The results have always been to an advantage. I have known Katie Werner as well. She has been there for me and comes through like a charm. Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Richards. He took my legal experience to another level. I cannot express how grateful I am for all the hard work the entire staff has given me.

Knowledgeable, Professional and Diligent
Phil and his team were amazing in every facet of my case from the beginning. They were courteous, professional, diligent and fought extremely hard for my settlement.
