Mr. Dore is a very talented lawyer and a really good guy. Blake is very easy to work with and showed genuine interest in my case from the beginning. He has a very good understanding of the law and how the justice system works. He put a ton of time and effort into my case. When I came to Mr. Dore I knew it was an uphill battle with both poor performance on FSTs and a BAC test result of .11 but he took the time to work with me and work through what was a pretty complicated case, coming up with a solid defense. Our first trial went to a hung jury but after 11 months we finally came away with a 'not guilty' verdict at the second trial. Blake is a true professional in the court room, continually impressing me with his ability to be both professional and personable with the judge and jury.
Mr Dore is a very hard worker, an excellent legal mind and most importantly a truly stubborn fighter for his clients!

I called Mr. Doré after receiving a speeding citation that would potentially end my career.
He promptly called me in response to my email and I hired him. He immediately took action, was positive, helpful, and honest. He kept me updated, and resolved the issue before my court date.
After speaking with him initially, my nerves were calmed simply by knowing he was working on it, especially having seen all his other reviews. He did exactly what he said he was going to do. In the future he will be the only lawyer I would recommend in similar situations.

I was charged with speeding in Milwaukie in Jan 2015. I would not recommend Mr Dore as a traffic attorney, even though he was able to get my case dismissed. The process of getting this ticket dismissed spanned 18 months. Some of the delay was due to the courts, but also some of it was Mr Dore's chronic inability to return phone calls and emails. I lost count of the dozens of calls/emails that went unanswered. That was bad enough, but then there was the Milwaukie judge who subtly alluded to his incompetence. When I did get 'any' information from Blake, it was short, vague 160 character Twitter-like emails. The worst part of having him as my lawyer was that part of the agreement he signed off on promised that 'funds paid to the court would be refunded.' 9 months after the agreement was reached, Blake told me I would not be getting any money back. He blamed it on a court clerk that was 'misinformed.' Blake Dore is an unprofessional amateur and I would definitely not recommend him. He is more interested in social media than adequately and accurately representing his clients. Look him up; he's all over Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc..

Took a couple tries to reach at first but after our conversation, he took control of the case and handled it until the ticket got dismissed. Definitely worth the couple tries to reach him on my part.

I would like to start by saying that Mr. Dore' was extremely helpful. From the start he was very considerate for my situation. Before and after my court date he was in constant contact with me and answered any questions that I had. Through the course of my 1 year diversion I was in constant contact with him and he always got back with me on any concerns I might have had. I would highly recommend using his services.

The objective of any good attorney is to serve and satisfy his clients better than anyone else who practice the same law they do .
That is exactly what Blake Dore's does.
I have used Blake on multiple occasions and every time have come away with positive results .
His clients are his most important assets .

Blake could not have been any less helpful when it came to my traffic ticket. Initially, it took two attempts contacting him before I got a reply. I explained my situation and that I had a little over a week before the ticket was due to resolve it. He said he would be happy to help and we exchanged several emails discussing my ticket, but each time he would take between 36-72 hours for me to get a response. My last email to him included that I only had couple of days left and would need a decision soon, to which I never got a response.
Blake Dore was entirely useless when it came to helping me with my ticket.

I had such a pleasant experience with this attorney. I had a multiple speeding tickets before and this last ticket could jeopardize my privilege to drive! Billing was done on line, he updated me about development of my case via email and I was never called in to be present, which worked so well for my busy schedule! As a result of Mr. Blake Dore my case was dismissed!!! I am very impressed and highly recommend his services to anyone! Natasha R.

I was privileged to have Mr. Dore represent me in Appeals Court to fight a moving violation citation. Pondering my experience with Mr. Dore, the phrase, “under promise and over deliver” come to mind. I appreciated his listening, preparation, and case assessment skills. His courtroom image was powerful, his delivery smooth, and his intellect superior (ie: he was the smartest one in the room). Then, his epic closing statement/performance mesmerized the court, resulting in a “Not Guilty” verdict.
