Matthew A. Dolman

About me

The foremost goal at Dolman Law Group is to provide accessible client communications to our existing client base.  All clients are provided the cellphone number and email address for their handling attorney.  This facilitates communications and ongoing dialogue between the client and legal counsel.  We often hear horror stories from clients who were formerly represented by other law firms in which they never met nor received a call from their attorneys and the claim was handled by a paralegal or legal asisstant .  


At Dolman Law Group, we handle all cases from the beginning to the end with limited exceptions.  We maintain an active litigation calendar throughout the State of Florida.  We have the resources and ability to litigate personal injury claims against the largest of insurance carriers.


I am an avid sports fan and obsessively follow, the Tampa Bay Bucs, Mets, Rangers as well as the University of Miami.   I am also the proud father of a two year old son named Conrad.
