I contacted Attorney Dowling for advice and support for a retail fraud (shoplifting) charge that my teenage son was facing. Mr. Dowling presented a very practical approach to the situation, and expertly guided us through the necessary legal process. Beyond the understanding of and application of the law, Mr. Dowling shared personal parenting experience and challenges to help our family through this difficult time. It was very clear that his concern for my son was (and is) greater than a simple attorney-client relationship. Attorney Dowling's genuine concern was further revealed as my son's legal issues expanded due to a probation violation. Again, Mr. Dowling represented my son expertly and negotiated the best possible solution in the circumstances. Through this experience, I have grown to consider Mr. Dowling a partner in my efforts to guide my son to a respectful, law-abiding state. I maintain the highest level of respect for Attorney Dowling's expertise and concern for his clients.

I have had 2 occasions to use Attorney Dowling's services. In both cases, all options were discussed very clearly and openly from the beginning. I felt his fee was fair, even though one of the fees was increased due to a changing circumstance. He handled himself with professionalism and integrity at all times, whether in his office, on the phone or in court. He's simply honest and sincere. It's obvious that he is respected in the courtroom. We received the best possible outcomes in both of our cases.
Beyond the legal issues that were handled, in both situations Attorney Dowling went the extra mile by also trying to teach life lessons. He really reached out and tried to connect and tried to make a difference in the lives of some young people.
I would highly recommend.

gave him 2500 retainer for a criminal case he wanted another 2000 before he would do anything. I then decided to see another attorney for a second opinion. Refused to give me a copy or even go over my police report before i paid him in full. Doesn't care about you only wants your money. Also refused to give me back any of my retainer when he only spent 4-5 hours on my case.

I hired this lawyer for a minor traffic ticket. I was charged $500 and was told it was dismissed only to find out later on the traffic ticket still shows up. Dowling doesn't care about the person he cares about the money and trying to get by. Tread with caution... I'm sure he probably doesn't screw everyone over, so just be careful.
