Very satisfied
As a father of young children, I was very nervous about finding an attorney to represent me in my divorce. I’m very grateful to have found Robert Von Dohlen and his wonderful team! Robert represented me with great dedication and professionalism. He is a straight shooter that doesn’t sugar coat anything and you can truly trust in his advice. His calm and sincere attitude really put me at ease through some of the difficult details of my case. In the end, I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case. Thank you for everything!

Attentive Lawyer
To start off, Von Dohlen is a great lawyer who represented me with pride and strategy. When I spoke with this man I could tell he practically lives in the Courthouse. His insight on the law and how it works really secured my doubts about hiring him. right off the bat, he understood the issues I was having and he knew how to combat them in a respectful informative manner. Lawyers have a bad rep of acting sheisty, but working with Von Dohlen and going over strategies with him really made me feel like I chose the right man for the job. In the beginning of the lawsuit, he gave me several options on how to proceed which I must say were all viable options. He explained to me in great detail what those options would intel (how the opposing counsel would respond and his opinon on court rulings). As my case would develop I never once felt like I did not know what was happening with my case. He was informative and his staff was very friendly. There would be times I would call his office for a case update (after receiving an update the day before) and he never seemed frustrated or irritated. He would always assure me that I was in good hands and I would not have to worry about a thing. His services were very inexpensive which made the whole lawsuit a lot smoother for me. Towards the end of the case, where real negotiations would take place he would lay out the offer from the opposing counsel and give great insight on what I should do. Von Dohlen is definitely not afraid to go back and forth with opposing counsel in negotiations, mediation, or in the courtroom. Overall he handled my case with great pride and integrety. I never once felt like I was at a loss by retaining him for his services.

Tricky Civil Matter
Robert was very easy to deal with. When dealing with previous attorneys, I found them non responsive, Robert was absolutely the opposite even responding on weekends and evenings. I felt like he actually cared about me and how I faired in this matter and was not just looking for money. I have already recommended him twice and will continue to do so.

Even in what is a stressful life event, Robert is personable and easy to talk to. He provided sound advice and I always felt like he always had my best interest - not the bottom line - in mind.

Professional, accurate legal counsel
Robert advised our family after my mother's abrupt passing. He gave us advice on how to navigate the complexities of dealing with her belongings and financial affairs. His compassion in our time of need was appreciated. We can always count on Robert to be in touch the latest legal trends and information. I've known Robert personally for nearly twenty years. No one brings a higher standard of ethics and conduct to legal practice. I highly recommend Attorney Robert Von Dohlen for your legal needs. He'll get the job done.

My Legal Experience with Robert Von Dohlen
In what was possibly the most stressful event to ever take place in my fifty (50) years of existence, I cannot imagine where I could have selected a better legal representative than Robert Von Dohlen. This attorney removes the ambiguity from the divorce process. He has a quiet and calm approach to his handling of both the proceeding and client interaction. This becomes extremely important and helpful given the dynamic and often time painful process. If you are going through through the divorce process and need quality representation, I would highly recommend this attorney. In closing there were several occasions where the apposing council attempted to drag out the process so that more billing could be achieved, but this is not the business philosophy of the Von Dohlen Law Firm. I could go on for hours praising this attorney and the kindness and compassion that was continuously shown but i won't. I will leave it at that. He is amazing and I would highly recommend Robert as you will not find a better representation at any price.

OUTSTANDING
Mr. Von Dohlen represented me for a divorce in 2017. When I first contacted him and informed him I am active duty, he immediately responded with an offer to take my case. We began immediately developing a strategy that fit in to my life as a military member. In the end the divorce was completed with virtually zero head ache. Very professional and would absolutely recommend his services!

Very Appreciative of Mr. Robert Von Dohlen
I recently found myself in a situation where I needed a divorce attorney. I have a young child and I need to ensure my interests were protected in this unfortunate event. I contacted Mr. Von Dohlen and explained my concerns. He was very helpful in our initial communication and help guide me through a few next steps even though I did not retain his services immediately. Robert contacted me the following morning to check up on me to see how I was doing. At no point was he soliciting services and was genuine in concern. After another lengthy conversation, I knew he was the attorney I wanted to represent me. Through the entire process, Robert was very responsive and easy to get a hold of when needed. He worked with me and kept me informed (in ways I could understand) through the entire process. I am very appreciative of Robert, as I have a more than successful experience in my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Robert Von Dohlen. My hope is that I will never need his services again; however, should something come up down the road in my situation, he will be my first call.
