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

Dorinna hirsch did not show up for my court hearing , and never called never filed any of the appropriate documents for my case.
Very untrustworthy and very unprofessional, I will seek relief from the state bar.

Dorinna Hirsch is your best option, specially if you are hiring a lawyer for the first time. She is very presentable and comforting when I met her at such a stressed time. She was also very detailed and knowledgeable about the law, and very patient under my difficult situation. She is kind, nice and treats you like a person just as much as a client. I will reccomend her services to any that need it.
Thank you Dorinna!

If you are a father battling over custody of your child, and you need a lawyer who will really fight for you, I recommend Dorinna Hirsch. Meetings were well organized, productive, and focused. I left with a clear understanding of next steps, and if anything was needed from me (and by when). She is is extremely knowledgeable, diligent, prepared, ethical... I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you are in a divorce or custody battle, or may get in one, I can say unequivocally, that you should hire Ms. Hirsch. You don't want her on the other side...

I was going through a very difficult time as I was being arrested for DUI... Ms. Hirsch made me feel at ease since day 1, explaining every step of the process. She is very knowledgeable and went the extra mile to help me get the best possible outcome in my case. She also speaks Spanish which was very helpful since English is not my first language.

After dealing with hectic divorce Ms. Hirsch helped me with my child custody case. I had previously dealt with two different lawyers who gave me no faith or hope in getting minimum or any custody of my children.
Ms. Hirsch listened to my concerns and genuinely helped me in a very attentive way, she was always very professional and knowledgable, answered my questions, concerns and phone calls.
After an overwhelming custody trial I was awarded 70% custody of my children.
Since that, I've recovered my piece of mind and will always be grateful to her.

Dorinna gave me very helpful information and relief, making me feel I was not alone in my unfortunate matter. She is very smart and I can tell she can be agressive in court if needed to fulfill her client's needs. She was by the book and did not add to my negative emotions by advising me to fight for unecessary issues.

I would absolutely recommend Ms. Hirsch as your attorney. I am very thankful that I found her and hired her to help and solve my legal issues as I though I would never get past it. Today she gave me excellent news, news I thought I would never receive. There is nothing else I can say but I was very lucky and fortunate to have Ms. Hirsch represent me.
