Hired Attorney for Child Custody Case
Mr. Dugan represented me with my child custody case. He went above and beyond the call of duty to win my case. He was professional, dignified and punctual. He was proactive and ahead of the case at all times. I highly recommend Mr. Dugan and will refer him to any of my friends and/or associates that may need an attorney.

I can’t express how much Vince did for me, went above and beyond for my case. Not only was he extremely nice he has helped multiple friends of mine.

Custody Case
Mr. Dugan handled my custody case with expert advise. The outcome of the case was exactly the way I had hoped. All advise given was accurate and concise. Mr. Dugan clearly understands family law and I would recommend him to anyone.

Excellent family law Attorney
Vincent Dugan was very well prepared for my court case. He was on top of everything that was presented. I am very happy with his services and would definitely use him again.

Solid Attorney in Columbus Ohio
Mr. Dugan represented me in a divorce a few years ago. Anytime I have to go back to court for child visitation or support issues, Vince has always had my back. He is smart, convincing, and well known in the community as a tough lawyer. I give Vince my highest recommendation.

Incredible Attorney!
Vincent is a hell of a man. I came to him in dire trouble and he instantly took command of the situation, calmed me down, and took on the situation in a very professional and excellent manner. I was accused of a crime I did not commit, and he got me through the ordeal with a complete and 100% dismissal. I was never so frustrated in the beginning, but he took command and got me what I deserved. 100% vindication. If I ever found myself in a situation again, I would pick up the phone and call him right away. He has earned my trust and respect. He fights for his clients, and he will represent you very very well!.

Best Attorney I ever hired!
Vince Dugan has been my Attorney for the last 6 years. After going through a very vindictive divorce that also lead to false criminal charges placed against me...Vince has been there to defend me and expose my ex for the liar she is. The last 6 years has been a struggle for me, and I am thankful I had the protection provided by this man. He has saved me countless times, and he even calls me to see how I am doing and to offer advice when I need it. There has never been a time that I needed his help and he wasn't there to help me. He is the kind of guy that will always go the extra mile for his clients...and you can tell when you talk with him that he genuinely cares about you. He has been my sword and shield time and again, and he can be yours too. You can trust this man to represent you in the highest professional manner, and also to be your friend who is willing to lend an ear when you need to vent. I really don't know where I would be right now if it wasn't for Vince.

A smart lawyer
Vince is a very intelligent attorney. He knows the laws and has the experience and expertise of all of the local courts. I had 2 cases in 2 different counties and he knew the "ins and outs". He handled my cases expertly and I was very pleased with the results. He is not a hand-holder and often seemed distracted, but he knows his stuff and when it came right down to it, he was right, and won.

divorce client, personal use client
Vince has been our "family" lawyer for over 20 years. He handled a divorce for my father, in which he did a VERY good job, did corporate work for our business, and handled my divorce. Vince is not a hand holder, but if your children are your priority, and you want to make sure your divorce is fair then he is the Lawyer for you. Since my divorce, Vince has handled all of my personal business with his usual dilligence, care, and always looking out my best interest. I would not use anyone else.

terrible attorney
Awful experience- used him in my divorce and he did nothing, charged me a lot. Should not be allowed to practice law.
Posted by anonymous | January 15, 2011
Unprofessional, unethical, unresponsive
Vince Dugan deliberately stalled my divorce case and never answered emails, phone calls, nor did he show up on time for court hearings, depositions. He was poorly prepared for most hearings. His staff was just as bad, lying for him and not returning phone calls. My divorce took many years to complete and should have been finalized within a year. Continuances and canceled depositions were his way of stalling the process while being able to charge you more money. He has anger management problems and acted very unprofessionally, many times losing his temper. Please don't hire this attorney, unless you want to throw your money away for what will be a poor settlement on your behalf.

He was determined to bring my case to trial, even though I asked repeatedly to help me to settle. Did not return phone calls or e-mails. Billing practices questionable, very little results for the amount of money spent for his "services"

Do not use
Mr Dugan appeared to be knowledgeable, when we got to court he did not use ANY of the information gathered. Judge awarded her the full amount, no argument from Mr Dugan. He charged me a fee up front, for the entire case, paid him in full, since then he has billed me for twice that amount. I have reminded him that I paid him for his services, but I keep receiving additional bills.
