On a daily basis, our company works with dozens of law firms throughout the country and world. We have been working with Dabling since 2010. Dabling's trustworthiness, responsiveness, analytical skills, excellent research skills, speaking skills, and listening skills have been fundamental in successful resolution of many cases for our clients and ours. His judgement, perseverance, perspective and fairness are why we refer many clients to Dabling. Most importantly, Dabling won't use up a client's initial $$$ retainer on Admin/Paralegal fees before working on the scope. This is a tactic many law firms utilize, then request a second $$$ retainer. Also, if there is the slightest conflict of interest, Dabling will let you know. Unlike some law firms, that take your $$$ retainer knowing there is a conflict of interest, and deliberately do nothing on your case, except burn up your $$$ retainer. Dabling keeps up to date on changes in law, his accuracy and precision are obvious and this reflects positively on the outcomes/dispositions/judgments. Dabling has excellent judgment and decision-making skill when it comes to which cases are worth pursuing and which not. Finally, an attorney’s personality is paramount and Dabling is respectful, fair, caring, loyal, and judges, opposing counsel, and juries acknowledge this.

Help with CPS
Joshua Dabling was great help. We had a situation where the school called CPS on our family. I was really scared, but he helped us through the whole situation guiding us on what to except and being there while meeting with the caseworker. Everything turned out fine and I was so relieved. I keep his number handy and reach out for consultations anytime I'm not sure on legal situations. I recommend Joshua Dabling to everyone I know.

Excellent lawyer, person and support.
My case lasted for about a year, it was a difficult divorce, but because the other part wasn't cooperating like he should've done. In the main while, Joshua was more then a lawyer to me, he has an incredible value as a person, he orientated me, guided me, thought me, helped me, had patience, and always has the right words to not let me make a mistake. And he always thought about the best for my daughter and I. I would never be able to thank him enough for everything he did for my case. No only he has the knowledge about what he is doing, he is also a great father and husband wich makes it more easy for him to understand his clients feelings and needs. He has a great heart and is a very humble and smart person. No once, but several times, I was so close to make big mistakes and cause a mayor damage to my case, he always had the patience, and perfect tact to explain me why it could've haven a bad decision, he is nothing like other lawyes that's always talking about the money, he has a great tact when is time to talk about it as well. I'd TOTALLY recommend him to whomever is going though a hard time and needs a Elgar representative. Joshua, is a great lawyer and person.
