Attorney Dolenga represented me at a social security appeal hearing. I was well prepared for the hearing and all activities were as expected. Mr. Dolenga arrived one hour before the hearing and walked me through the hearing process and I felt comfortable with my appearance before the judge. I am pleased with the services that were provided.

The attorney's assistant has a great come on when she's taking your first call--very empathetic, very nice. I hired him because I really thought she spoke for the office and understood what I needed. Well...fool me once shame on you...So, SHAME ON YOU JAMES DOLENGA! I had two other attorneys who wanted to take my case. I wish I would have chosen one of them. This office doesn't return calls for two or three days, which can seem like a lifetime when you're anxious and need to talk to someone who knows how the game is played. They didn't "walk me through" filing out the papers like they said they would. I had to fill them out myself, fax to him, waited for days and then had to keep calling to get anywhere. They made me so angry and upset because I felt I was doing everything myself and they just got to collect their money. That's what really peeved me...he got to collect money from my benefits and I'm the one who did all the work. If you have mental illness, anxiety and PTSD like I do, do yourself a favor and find someone else. You will only be frustrated and disappointed. I don't know what happened to him or his office in the last year, but it has really gone down hill if people were saying great things about him in other reviews. Stay away and don't be a sucker!

I agree with another reviewer. Does NOT return calls, showed up late to my hearing, and didn't call the week prior (to my hearing like he said he would in his letter) so that I would be 'fully prepared'. He is a bunch of BS and arrogant.
