Very Compassionate
I retained Mr. Doty for my divorce case. It was a very highly contested case with a lot on the line. He handled my divorce with attentiveness and compassion. I am very pleased with the end results. I will definitely retain him again in the future if I ever need an attorney.

Awesome Guy
Hiring an attorney for bankruptcy was hard. I spoke to another attorney that made me feel Ike a failure. However, it was during the initial conversation with Stephen Doty that I knew I would hire him. He never once made me feel like a failure for having this financial setback and is very helpful with everything I throw at him! He’s AMAZING!

Very good attorney
Mr. Doty assisted me in resolving a complicated Chapter 13 Case without me having to show up for court hearings. He responded to all my questions in a timely manner and kept the ball moving forward. I can wholeheartedly recommend him.

Excellent
Declaring bankruptcy can be very taxing and time consuming but Mr Doty was always available to answer questions whether it was by phone call text or email we will explain the process and great detail and this process was made easier by the fact that we decided to hire a attorney that understood how naive we were about the process and was there with us every step of the way we would definitely recommend him to anyone that asked

Best Family Lawyer in Duval

Best family attorney in Florida!
I cannot recommend Stephen Doty enough! He just facilitated our third win in family court (2 entirely separate cases; one custody, one fraudulent child support claim). This is my first win defending myself against this specific family in the last 18 years. I felt hopeless until I hired Mr. Doty. Stephen was familiar and knowledgeable with all of the statutes in my particular case, as well as with the officiates and representatives who appeared at the hearing. He negotiated boldly, with wisdom and experience, and although he managed my expectations, we came out beyond victorious. This man has your (family’s) best interest at heart and will absolutely fight for you.

Amazing!
Attorney Stephen Doty is a great strategic, thoughtful and can get aggressive when he needs to be. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need. It is so hard to find an honest Attorney that fights for his client. I am forever great full for the opportunity to have met and to have worked with Attorney Doty! He has changed me and my family’s life for the better. With him I have reached my goal!

Stop looking!!! This is your man!!! Stephen was awesome!!
I retained Stephen for my Divorce during Covid… He was a referral from my brother. He did an outstanding job for me through out the entire process… especially when we went to court.. I felt like a was his only client and not some file number like the large firms…. I would absolutely hands down use Stephen again, but hopefully I won’t have too!! Thank you so much Stephen for all you did for me.
