Dotty adviced me to announce the divorce news to my spouse by email. Later I found out that is the worst strategy if you are seeking a friendly divorce . It was the best strategy to make it more expensive though . Well my wife who's IQ is 164 after I sent her that terrible email realized of it and actually proposed me to do it in court without her and save us a lot of money . After this smart and considerate gesture I realized It will be a mistake to divorce a woman that on top of been hurt as a women thanks to Dotty recommendation and call it out with an email ( a polite one though) ; she actually put aside her pride and helped me to find a way to divorce her in a civilized way and a respectful one , after me sending that terrible email . After I told Dotty I did not want to serve my wife with papers neither divorce her , Dotty still charged me $125 a month to let me know that there were not changes in court . I actually got a link from my wife to do so by myself . I guess for searching online Dotty was charging $ 125 to let me know she was not doing anything.

While Dottie has a great reputation, she is not a great attorney. She was often unresponsive to my questions. She would have her paralegal send me an email that she was planning to call me, but the calls never came.
Worst of all she strongly encouraged me to sign an agreement without taking the time to tell me what changes had been made. I'm not sure she had read it herself. The other party's lawyer had re-written the document and there were changes that I should not have approved.
Dottie seemed to always have personal problems that caused delays in my case. Perhaps it's time for her to retire.

Dorothy (Dotty) Pounders was recommended to me by a Lawyer as having a great reputation in the past. My experience was very different. There was a hearing scheduled for which she did nothing for. She would not reply to emails, would not reply to my wife's Lawyer's letters and rarely returned a call. She spent a lot of my money claiming she read letters and emails but would not reply or give me advice for weeks at a time if at all. Iâ€™m sure she was once a brilliant divorce Lawyer but my understanding is she living off her past reputation with little regard for her current clients. If you were a past client of hers a long time ago them you probably experienced something completely different. When looking for another Lawyer to replace her I heard this was their experience too with clients coming to them with the same story. I hired another attorney and was very satisfied with their performance and the final outcome.
