John Gets Things Done
John Dodall helped me get my case dismissed completely. He is a great attorney who works hard and has a lot of connections with the prosecutors office. If you even find yourself facing charges, call John and see what he can do for you.

Was facing yearS in DOC
Was facing yearS in prison but due to John's expertise he was able to get the state of Arizona to dismiss ALL charges completely.

Outstanding attorney
I had the pleasure of hiring Jermey and John for my criminal case, and I can honestly say I got the best representation possible. Most genuine and knowledgeable attorneys. They followed through with exactly what they said they would and John even went the extra mile as to clear my record. I recommend them to anyone seeking legal help.

Best Criminal Attorney in Arizona
John is one of the best attorneys in the business. He has vast experience as a prosecutor AND as a defense attorney. He is honest, fair, professional, and ALWAYS advocates for his clients. He has spent years developing a reputation that is favorable for all the people that he represents. If you ever have an issue with the criminal justice system, John is the person to call. I read the poor review that was left for John and I couldn't disagree more. He is someone that I trust and respect.

DO NOT HIRE HIM!!!!!!
IF I could give ZERO stars then I would. *** DO NOT GO WITH HIM, HE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED AS YOUR CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY, SEEK OTHER REPRESENTATION!!!! *** I was represented by this man and during our case IN COURT IN FRONT OF THE JUDGE he is texting someone who is telling him how they just got out of the shower. He was disgustingly misfocused. He reviewed my case THE MORNING OF. He was so eager to just get a plea deal he didn't even converse with the judge about the circumstances of my case. It is SUCH a life changing decision going to court for a criminal charge, there are SO MANY FACTORS now in retrospect that I am learning on my own working in the legal field and recovering from the mental and emotional trauma that comes along with healing and moving your life forward after a criminal charge that he, as a trained lawyer did not perform his due diligence and totally neglected. This man is absolutely ridiculous in his nerve, I could go on further but I'd rather just save you time and money by giving you my word and solid recommendation *** DO NOT GO WITH HIM, HE IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED AS YOUR CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY, SEEK OTHER REPRESENTATION!!!! ***

Response from John Dosdall July 12, 2018
I do not believe this review is legitimate or factual. Nor do I believe this is even a client of mine. I pride myself on giving each and every client of mine complete focus and attention. Some of the allegations in this review are just not possible. For example, phone usage is not allowed in the courtroom. This means that there is no way that I had a phone out while in court during a hearing or else I would have been reprimanded by the judge or bailiff. I would hate to think a competitor would try to hurt me with such a malicious review, but I believe this is the case here.
