Failed to process my case in a timely manner. Now her office is being very vague about her whereabouts and is not getting back to me. She took a total of a thousand dollars from me and didn't fight for me in front of the judge when the judge dismissed my case (civil lawsuit). This whole experience is regrettable.

I arrived at Ms. Hirsch's office on April 18 at the scheduled time and met with Dorinna Hirsch and her partner Samantha Yurman. I informed Ms. Hirsch and Miss Yurman of my concern that their firm was not shown as my attorney of record even though I had retained and paid for their services back in November 2013. I also gave both women the court letter showing my new court date in Family Court, June 2nd, 2014, in Department 5 in front of yhe judge. Because they had not bothered to do a substitution of attorney and show that they were the attorney of record, they had no idea of the court date. I gave them their own copy of the letter with the court date and time. They stated they would get working on things and see me in court on June 2nd.
Again, I heard nothing at all from Ms. Hirsch or from Ms. Yurman. The morning of June 2, 2014, I was concerned because I had not heard from my attorney so I called the office to make sure that they would be in court that afternoon at 1:45. As usual, no one answered the phone so I left a message reminding Ms. Hirsch of the court hearing that afternoon and to please call me if there was an issue. I heard nothing from Ms. Hirsch. I arrived in court at 1:30 PM. I checked in with the deputy. Opposing counsel showed up in court. At 1:50 PM, I tried to call Ms. Hirsch again. I got a recording stating "the person you are trying to reach is not able to accept calls at this time." I again called at approximately 2:20 to let Ms. Hirsch know that I was waiting for her, the judge was waiting for her, and opposing counsel was waiting for her appearance. Again, I could not reach Ms. Hirsch. I tried another number for Ms. Hirsch and was able to reach a woman who answered the phone. She did not know where Ms. Hirsch or where Ms. Yurman was at that time. I asked her if she had a schedule for Ms. Hirsch or Ms. Yurman. She stated no, and that she had no idea where either council was.
Dorrina Hirsch did no work, she never showed for court, she never filed any documents with the court.

I ran into a civil matter with an individual who did bank fraud on us. Dorinna helped me recover all of what was lost and for that I am in much appreciation. She is very knowledgeable and strategic. I recommend her to anyone who is experiencing a civil matter
