Landlord Tenant Issue
Peter was great, attentive to our needs and was able to get a reasonable outcome. We had an issue with our landlord where the landlord was harassing us and changing previous stated agreements on duties and payments. It was becoming unbearable so we hired Peter to see how we can terminate our contract. Peter helped us meet our objective and the outcome was reasonable.

He is Awesome
My case is not big, but Peter is still very attentive to stand from my point of view and protect me, so that I get the least loss at the end of the case and maintain dignity. I really recommend him to everyone, and I will consult him for all legal issues In the future for sure

Professionalism and positive results at its best
Peter Dolan recently helped us with a trespassing issuing against a large communication company, aka, Frontier Communications. During construction of our home we discovered Frontier had laid cable outside of the provided easement and through the middle of our property. We had escalated our issue through Frontier who claimed they were entitled due to Adverse Possession Laws and there was nothing we could do as they were also protected by the FCC. Frontier, also said, they would charge us over $12,000 to reroute their line and then offered us $500 for use of property. We refused and then came the verbal harassment from their "district" leaders who wanted us to drop everything and go away. Frustrated, I reached out to a friend who referred us to Keith Kemper and Peter Dolan. They knew the laws better than Frontier lawyers appeared to know and were successful with this type of litigation. Peter helped us. He was always professional, very kind, approachable, and extremely well educated in his profession. He was very sensitive to our need and remained kind, patient, and courteous in communications with the Frontier attorneys and employees. In the end, we wanted Frontier to relocate their cable so we could continue construction and thanks to Peter B Dolan, it was accomplished. I highly recommend him for your legal needs. Thank you, Peter for your great work.

Top notch lawyer
Peter Dolan was our lead attorney in a long arduous case. As someone we relied upon for many months, he was professional and sympathetic. His knowledge and dedication were critical to us, our position, and our ability to persevere. His communication with us was above and beyond. We needed competent, safe, reliable guidance following a difficult life event; our expectations were exceeded. Peter's sharp preparation and sound composure give him an advantage against even the most seasoned lawyers. We hope to not face similar circumstances again, but we will contact Peter and his firm immediately if/when we need to be represented by the best.

Patience and professionalism
It was very hard finding representation, as many firms do not handle flooding / mold-related personal injury cases. Luckily I found Peter Dolan, who was willing to fight for me when no one else would. I was impressed by Peter's honesty and candor. He was straightforward with expectations and legal options, which helped me weigh the pros and cons of each decision during this process. He patiently answered all of my questions, and he was an expert at breaking down technical concepts for the everyday person to understand. I am very happy with the results and am grateful that he took on my case.
