I retained Dudman because he promised me that he definitely can help me to get my daughter back for me through reunification program, get more visitation time, more vocation days with my children, and lots of others.
However he completely changed his attitude and started to cheat me and mislead me by using the special terminologies and some unimportant holidays which only happen once a year after he contacted with the other side’s lawyer who represented my ex. He made some shady deals with that lawyer so that he could also continuously make good money from me with the other side’s lawyer because the other side’s lawyer told him that we were wealthy and my ex was very generous to give her money for fighting everything in the court.
My case is very special because I didn’t want to divorce and missed the original hearing for dissolution. I got default for everything. The Judge gradually realized that I was a good father and husband in the subsequent reviews. The Judge said she would grant me what I deserved in the final review, including half visitation time and vocation days.
Dudman tried very hard to convince me to give up the reunification with my daughter and half vocation days before the hearing. Obviously, the other side’s lawyer knew she couldn’t get what she “promised” to my ex. Therefore, she asked the help from Dudman so that she could continuously abduct my ex.
Dudman met with the other side’s lawyer privately in the court for a very long time right before the hearing. What he presented in the hearing was completely different from what he promised me. He just played on words to fool me rather than directly asked for what he promised me when I retained him. He horribly asked for only one time reunification therapy because he knew it was impossible to solve the problem if court only granted me once. Fortunately, Judge said that the reunification therapy should continue until I could reconcile with my daughter. Moreover, Judge granted me peaceful contact with my ex, which he refused to present for me in the court because both Dudman and other side lawyer’s wanted to isolate me from my ex as much as possible so that they could hold us endlessly to make good money from us. Dudman has no heart at all. In order to make dirty money, he doesn’t care about that, being a cancer patient, how much I suffer from missing my daughter.
Duman is an unethical lawyer, he made money by cheating. He was also very rude to me and never answered me any questions. He has no heart at all

I choose Mr. Dudman, against my will, because my mother decided for me. I had a very bad experience w/ Callahan&Blaine in Santa Ana. I was terrified to try again. I met w/several other attorneys & all wouldn't take my case, so to my surprise Mr. Dudman said he would & felt good about taking it, I was hesitant. The very 1st court date, he continued the case. I left the court cursing & wanted to slap him!! My mother stayed behind talking w/him as I ran crying. It was regarding CPS case. My girls are the world to me & I truly felt I was going to loose them forever. The following court date Mr. Dudman hit hard & we were in trial several days. I was soo impressed & when we left court not only did I win, I got everything I wanted!! When leaving court, my mother said give me an invoice I don't want you to wait 1 minute for your well earned money. The next several years I also used him for other custody cases regarding my eldest daughter, again winning over & over. I recently recommended him to my then boyfriend, now husband, for his divorce. I coached my boyfriend on what Mr. Dudman likes and his strategies. During the very long fight, we finished the divorce & custody a little longer, which is normal. We won custody hands down, again VICTORY!!!!! The entire staff is soo friendly, helpful & truly now our family. We love them & will recommend him hands down. He's an excellent choice. I have just opened another case w/Mr. Dudman...
