Dowe Law
Hermin Dowe gave us help and guidance when we needed it most. We were in a situation that nobody wants to be in and is very tricky to navigate, from day one we trusted and respected her knowledge to get us through the bankruptcy process and she did without issue. There are many requirements to get your case filed, prepping for your court date and seeing your case through to the end, Hermin had us absolutely prepared every step of the way and without her we would have been lost

A positive experience using the Dowe law firm.
This is the first time I have ever hired a lawyer and the Dowe law firm has has made my experience with hiring a lawyer a pleasant one. She answered all my question and concerns and gave me the information about what to expect during the bankruptcy process. I would recommend the Dowe law firm to any one seeking a lawyer to file bankruptcy.

A Great Attorney in the East Bay
Hermin is a tough lady. Very straight forward and to the point. Exactly what I wanted my lawyer to be. If I had questions she answered them promptly and always kept me informed of the entire bankruptcy process so that there were no surprises. I would highly recommend her if you are dealing with a bankruptcy.
