Highly Recommended - Terrific Lawyer
I had talked to a couple of other lawyers previously, but i was immediately comfortable choosing Mr. Dobogai after meeting with him. He is very honest, intelligent, hardworking, personable and affordable. I was being charged with a 3rd OWI and he got it reduced to a first. I am very thankful to have had him and I would recommend him to anyone.

Honest and Professional
John professionally handled my legal difficulties without personal judgement. He was able to clearly communicate all options to me. We discussed possible strategies together. The results were terrific! I would recommend John to anyone who needs honest legal representation.

Great lawyer!
Mr. Dobogai is the most ethical and trustworthy attorney I have ever retained. My case was just a traffic violation, but without Johns attention to detail I am sure I would have had to pay much higher fine, and possibley served some time under the Huber Law. Thanks John!!

attorney review
Attorney John Dobogai III changed my concept of how attorney/client relationship could be. for the positive. I found Attorney John Dobogai ito be thorough, compassionate and knowledgeable in all area of the law I needed legal direction. He always found the time to review my case and returned phone calls in a timely manner. His office staff also donates this same professional demeanor. Thank you for the opportunity to share my experience. Suzanne

YES. Move forward confidently with Attny John E. Dobogai III. He comes HIGHLY recommended.
We've hired John several times now and are pleased with his services. Business contracts, real estate contracts and wills. If you don't have a will, get in to see him asap. It doesn't take long and the cost is minimal to get your affairs in order and know things will be handled properly. Even existing wills should be reviewed annually. Our needs have certainly changed in the last 5 years (marriage/children/life insurance). It's also important to have a business continuation plan, if that applies to you. In any event, we felt much better after our meeting with John and he answered all our questions in a timely manner.

DUI Not guilty
I was arrested for a DUI first offense in June. I talked to a few lawyers and decided John was my best choice. He handled all the details quickly and kept me in the loop at all times. We went to trial in November and John made sure i understood what was going on at all times. John did an excellent job with the trial and we got a verdict of not guilty. John Dobogai is a great choice if you ever find yourself in need of a lawyer.

| Consulted Attorney
Dishonest,Smartmouthed and Cannot be trusted
Atty Dobogai is dishonest and smart mouthed, He don't accept weekly and monthly payments, He makes you pay him the whole amount of money when you hire him as a attorney.
