very thankful
Today is the happiest day in my life, I still do not believe everything I have achieved thanks to the lawyer Dolores Lopez, in all this long journey despite the fact that on occasions I despaired of my situation, she was patient and knew how to help me achieve what I wanted, step by step we managed to get my daughter to live with me today, after her mother decided not to let me see my daughter, if for no reason, I am very grateful to Mrs. Dolores, thank you for allowing my daughter to enjoy without any problem , for being so professional, and for giving me the joy of having my daughter, without a doubt I recommend them and based on my experience, they are right when they say that everything has its time, the Jos family law firm helped me a lot, since Being a father sometimes we have to lose when it comes to child custody, if you are going through any problem regarding your children I heartily recommend Jos family law. Thank you

Child support
I would recommend Dolores to everyone in need of a great family law attorney; she helped me with my Child support case. She achieved the results I was hoping for in a timely manner, I was informed at all times about my case status. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

Dolores Calderon Lopez was an amazing lawyer for my divorce proceedings. During such a hectic and uncertain time, she kept me informed, explained everything as it was going on and gave me the best possible advice for the outcome. Dolores was always readily available to answer any questions or concerns that I had. What makes her a great attorney, she's very knowledgeable, responsive, and most importantly she really caring and honest person. Her advice and guidance was forthright, and precise, and she worked hard to help me achieve the results I was hoping for. I would definitely recommend her to family, friends, or colleagues.

Eviction Case
Ms. Lopez represented me in my eviction. The landlord settled right away, gave up two month's rent so I could move to a place that is better for my kids. What I like about her is she returns calls right away and was straight up with me. I had lawyers before where you leave a message or you always end up talking to the secretary. That didn't happen.

Jan 6 after no amended doc emailed as stated, VM not replied to, I sent long detailed texts at 5:31 pm and again at 8:51pm telling her I had NOT received the document as she’d again assured… I asked, “should I have received it?” She replied, “Not yet” at 8:52pm I sent her msg saying I was scared, that this was not what was discussed bc I’d told her upon meeting that I needed the amended naming of defendants as business or etc… and to THEN research or hire process servers to serve by Jan 16th… but MOST IMPORTANTLY she had told me I’d need to RE-FILE the amended complaint in ORDER of course TO HAVE the court re-issue the amended complaint w summons for service etc… And wrote: “scared this won’t be possible within this short time unless the newly filed amended complaint will give me a different serving deadline?” Her reply: “It will be fine” Jan 6, 10:01pm Calls not returned, emails, and texts…it’s now Jan 9, 2017. After vm not responded to I again send her long text as it is the only venue she replies to: I express my SERIOUS concerns about ALL Of the above ask her to call me ask MANY RATIONAL ? under circumstances . She texts back only, and it is: “Don’t worry. We have time. Regarding Marc, not sure what happened.” 8:13pm I respond with relief, believing she knows what she’s talking about, or has any intention to actually do as agreed. She follows up with a statement that “we can ask the court for permission to serve them by publication”… Um.. Huh? And until JAN 11 THAT WAS ALL I HEARD FROM HER.. DESPITE DETAILED MSGS ASKING WHAT THE HECK AND DETAILING THE LEGAL PARAMATERS SHE CLEARLY DIDN’T CARE ABOUT.. On JAN 11TH, she texted me to “just serve the original complaint’ and “at the last known address” etc etc… It was INSANE.. The insanity continued through my paying for rush service to crap shoot address to a defendant not even named by the needs of the complaint, and of course it was a WASTE of more money as the process server went to “the last RESIDENTIAL address” that I ‘d already told her was…. Whatever… and of course, it was a waste…and the DAY AFTER I’d managed to FIND a server for that city to server by THE DEADLINE TO SERVE THAT SHE HAD LITERALLY IGNORED AS THE ENTIRE PURPOSE FOR HIREING HER TO AMEND THE COMPLAINT TO HAVE IT SERVED IN ALL CORRECT PARAMETERS, SHE she sends me her first msg of the entire month ordeal that was unsolicited: “Touching base with you. Where are you at regarding service”. Are YOU KIDDING ME??? DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT HIRE THIS WOMAN TO AGREE TO TIE YOUR SHOES.

Response from Dolores Lopez June 11, 2018
This client paid for a one-hour consultation only. I sent her my retainer attorney-client agreement. She never signed it. She never paid the retainer fee. Therefore, an attorney-client relationship was never formed. Thereafter, she bombarded my phone by calling several times a day asking me about the status of her case. I informed her that she needed the sign, date and return the attorney-client agreement and pay the retainer fee. I also informed her that it was not an emergency based on the facts of her case. Essentially, she tried, unsuccessfully to manipulate me into providing free work product and services by monopolizing my phone and insisting it was an emergency. She did not “lose it all.” In fact, she called me months later and informed me she retained counsel to assist her and according to her, everything was then progressing to her satisfaction.
