You are a name not a case number.
Mark and David Dodge have many years of experience and connections in Michigan. Through every step of the way I felt comfortable in the hands of Dodge PC and sure enough my case was resolved fast and extremely fair. Mark and David went above and beyond the call of duty.

Excellent results
Mark's work and knowledge of the law were extremely fast and efficient. He's also very personable. Through his research and persistence he was able to have my case dismissed. I would highly recommend him.

The Personal Difference
I was referred to Mark Dodge, from local experts in the field of criminal investigation. I was facing an immanent felony charge, and the sheer thought of serving time in prison and losing my family was more than I could comprehend! I needed the personal consultation of an experienced attorney to guide me through the intimidating process of standing against the detective and prosecutor. Within three hours of meeting Mark and David Dodge, they had arranged a meeting with the detective involved. They were courteous, respectful, and maintained a "gentle aggression" in the pursuit of the truth. Mark Dodge listened, without interruption, and took detailed notes. He knew which questions to ask, and helped me to think thoroughly through each layer of the allegations. He drafted an articulate response, and sought out to eliminate the charges before they could ever be filed. Two weeks later, David Dodge met again with the Criminal Detective, and was able to defend me from the allegations - from every angle. I will never forget the moment I received a text message from Mark Dodge: "Call me. Good news!" The detective had consulted with the prosecutor, and the decision had been made to not pursue any charges! I am grateful for the inexplicable experience, comprehensive mastery, and impeccable reputation of David and Mark Dodge. I can hold my head high in this community, thanks to the hard work and dedication of my attorney(s).

Will Fight For You
I went through a difficult time in my life and found myself facing three very serious felonies with very serious prison consequences. I heard the Dodge name from my employer. Mark Dodge immediately responded to my message and I felt comfortable talking with him. He and his staff treated me like family and fought for me like a family member during the several months that my case was pending. Mark went the extra mile during my case and in the end was somehow able to negotiate a misdemeanor with no jail. I have had other attorneys on other matters in my past. I can highly recommend the Dodge's and their expertise.

Extremely Reliable and Honest
If I have to describe Dodge and Dodge, P.C services in one sentence I would say “Their mission and vision statement highly speaks for them”. I was in need for criminal defense attorney for one of my family member. It was first time someone was facing charges in our family and we all were devastated that is why I was bit careful choosing an attorney. I was referred Dodge and Dodge, P.C. by one of my uncle. When I first talked to Mr. Dodge, He calmly listened to my concerns and allowed me sufficient time to verbalize my feelings. I felt at that movement that we will be in excellent hands. We hired him right away. He studied our entire case and educated us on what was happening, why it was happening and possible outcomes which helped us a lot to lessen the stress we were having in our mind. The case fee was very fair and affordable. Mr. Dodge was not just straight to the business, he fully considered our emotions throughout the case. For example, he worked out of his comfort zone for getting permission from the court so the family member can attend religious meeting and family function outside of the State instead of telling us to hold things until case is resolved. Mr. Dodge is extremely knowledgeable and highly dedicated to his work. For example, he studied similar cases and judgments to help us out with our case. He reviewed the cases and related information with us and helped us understand the possible outcomes. He was thorough, honest and extremely competent at finding the right information that would help out with our case. Mr. Dodge’s professionalism was beyond distinct. For example, he precisely guided us on information we needed to gather for the case. He offered different suggestions but let us make the final decision. He did not sugar coat any information and was real HONEST with us. His entire team including himself treated us with dignity and respect that we deserved. We felt so secure in his hands. Mr. Dodge communication skills are exceptional. The crucial key to Mr. Dodge communication was communicating ON TIME. He did an outstanding job on communicating information with us in timely manner. He responded our texts, phone calls and email very quickly even during holidays and weekends. One thing that I observed about Mr. Dodge and his team was that THEY TRULEY BELIVE IN THEIR MISSION AND VISION STATEMENT AND DELIVER SERVICES ACCORDINGLY. Through Mr. dodge’s thoroughness and intelligence, we received satisfied case result. I would say Dodge and Dodge, P.C is the PLACE where you definitely get a satisfactory result with reasonable costs. I highly recommend Dodge and Dodge, P.C. to the individuals who are looking for the incredible Legal advice and case results.

Don't risk looking elswhere
Mark did such an amazing job. Not only were all the charges dropped, but the relationships he has is what really makes the difference. He is highly respected in west michigan which means prosecutors are willing to meet with him beforehand. He was so prepared, detailed, and spot on!

Best Attorney in Grand Rapids
Facing criminal charges can be a scary thing. When I found myself in that predicament, I contacted Dodge and Dodge. Mark did a great job of helping me understand the process step by step and really helped put my mind at ease. He fought tooth and nail to make sure that I recieved the best outcome to my case, which I did. I could not be happier with how things turned out. Mark is very professional and personable and if I should ever find myself in such a position in the future, I would consider no one but Dodge and Dodge to represent me. They are great people who are truly great at what they do. I would highly recommend Mark Dodge to anyone who needs top notch legal counsel.

Constant communication and best results
Mark was there right when I called and walked me through the entire situation and possibilities. He made sure that I understood the different outcomes and made sure he worked toward my best interest. I could have not asked for better counsel.

Knowledgeable, Proffesional with Consistent Communication
Although I found myself in a bad situation, Mark Dodge helped me get through it. I found his expertise, knowledge and communication style extremely helpful. I always knew where we were in the process and what the next steps were. He was able to get my full driving privileges restored much earlier than anticipated and although I am still on probation is helping me to secure an early release from that obligation. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
