EVERYONE NEEDS A GOOD LAWYER. LET ME HELP YOU!

 

I have years and more than 60 jury trials worth of experience that I can bring to your case. Let me help you find the best outcome for your problem. I want to help you because I believe everyone needs a good lawyer.

For most of my life I’ve worked in helping professions. Before I came to the law I worked for Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services. I helped people get food stamps; I signed them up for reduced-cost childcare; I made sure they got the benefits that kept them from falling through the cracks.

I first wanted to be a lawyer when an elderly gentleman called me looking for help. He’d been wrongly denied benefits in the past but that was only the beginning of his problems. He faced legal problems – criminal charges and eviction – and he couldn’t find anyone to help him. I wanted to help him but couldn’t. I felt that if I were a awyer I could truly help people in dire straits.

A short while later, I enrolled in law school. Even before I was a lawyer, I continued working to help others. During law school I worked as intern with the Oregon Department of Justice helping to get kids away from abusive situations.

When an opportunity arose to directly help people – through criminal defense work – I jumped at it and spent five years working at a public defense office in Vancouver, WA. My work there taught me how to negotiate aggressively for my clients, persuade judges and connect with juries.

Now, I’m pleased to bring my skills to help you with your legal issues.

Mr Wizard!
Mr wizard! I got a red light ticket in Beaverton and I had just got my CDL license. The camera caught me pretty unquestionably and I was 99% sure it was going on my record and might make it very hard for me to get a CDL job. Blake and his team were able to get my ticket completely dismissed. I didn't even have to go to court. I couldn't recommend Dore Law Firm enough. They saved my career and our family's future. Best money I ever spent.

Trafic Ticket
Lucky me! I hired Dore Law Firm, and I am thrilled with the outcome – a total dismissal of the traffic ticket violation. The Dore Law Office kept me updated through their client portal, and Attorney Black Dore was very friendly, helpful, and had a total understanding of what he was doing. The charges were very reasonable compared to others. Money well spent!

CDL speeding ticket
I recieved a speeding ticket against my CDL that would of suspended my license which as many people know is very hard to convince the courts to make a deal on. Blake took on my case and did as much investigating as he could and let me know what my best choices were and he got my ticket to a non serious violation. They were not only very professional but also very communicative and prompt with their work, I am very impressed.Thanks you guys I will recommend you to anyone who needs it.

Quickly resolved camera trap speeding ticket
I cannot express my gratitude enough to Blake Dore for his exceptional legal expertise and outstanding service. I was in a predicament with a speeding ticket from a camera trap, and due to a previous misunderstanding, I didn't qualify for traffic school. After contacting several lawyers, I was fortunate to be referred to Blake. Blake worked tirelessly to negotiate my case and successfully transformed my ticket into a non-moving violation. This outcome not only saved me from the dreaded DMV report but also ensured my driving record remained unscathed. Blake's professionalism, knowledge of the law, and commitment to his clients are truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone in need of legal assistance. If you're in a tough spot with traffic violations, Blake Dore is the attorney you want on your side. Thank you, Blake, for your remarkable help!

Blake Dore
Blake Dore did a fantastic job getting my son Lawrence's ticket dismissed. His service was also very professional: he was responsive and informative whenever we asked questions or sought clarifications and always kept us up to date in a timely matter about developments in the case. As a practicing lawyer for 35 years myself, I am very vigilant about the lawyers I hire to handle my personal and family matters and I would recommend Blake Dore without reservation Philip and Lawrence Paccione

Great Attorney
I needed help with a ticket in Washington County. Of all the attorneys I called his was the only office that called back the same day. I felt comfortable with his office from the time I first spoke with Kelli and then with Mr. Dore. He was very up front about my case being a long shot given the circumstances but was still able to get the outcome I needed. Hes reasonably priced and I couldn't have been happier with the service. Would highly recommend his firm

Best Lawyer ever!
My wife got her 1st speeding ticket early May at Yamhill County - which by the way, doesn't offer Diversion. She went 81mph in 55mph and she would make her high risk driver and doubling our insurance premium. We decided to look for a lawyer to helped us and found Blake. He communicated with us thru phone and email. He even told us not to appear in court for trial because he will do the negotiations with the DA and the Judge and he was able to get my wife diversion classes in Legacy. After completing the class, the ticket was dismissed. Thank you so much Blake and Kellie. This lawyer worth every penny!

Excellent help in a tough situation
I found myself in a sticky situation with an extremely delayed speeding ticket that arrived well past my court date. This obviously led to default judgement, suspension, extra fines, etc. Blake and his office quickly responded and clarified what happened on the court's end and did an excellent job in getting the default judgement removed, suspension vacated, and even got the original ticket dismissed. All in all, great work!

Worth Every Penny
Blake Dore does an excellent job and has made several speeding and traffic light tickets of mine go away. And I was referred to him by my brother who also had a very good experience with him. His web portal lets log in to access the latest about your case at any time. Outside of initially speaking to him and paying his fee, you do nothing else. That said - I hope I never have to work with him again! :)

Defense Trial Attorney of the highest caliber
Blake defended me against an assault charge while practicing law as a public defender. I was acquitted quickly at trial because of the great work Blake did on my case. Thanks again and do yourself a favor and retain him.

Speeding ticket
As advertised, Blake from Dore Law firm helped me dismiss my speeding ticket without penalties. While not inexpensive, I am very pleased with his service, and the dismissal should save me hundreds on my insurance.

30+ Speeding ticket and other charge dismissed
Received a citation for allegedly speeding 30+ over the posted limit and I had not switched my license over from my previous state of residence. The officer was pretty upset, but polite and I was a bit worried about dealing with the situation on my own. I searched around for a well-recommended traffic lawyer and happened upon Dore Law Firm. Blake was able to take care of the situation and get both of the speeding and license allegations on the citation dismissed, with only needing to take a $60 High Risk Driver Course. The course was 4 hours and Blake charged a reasonable one-time fee. It was a much better price to pay than the alternative of the cost of the tickets + having it on my driving record. All in all, I am happy with my choice and would choose to work with Blake again. Thanks Blake and Dore Law Firm!
