Top Notch Legal Repesntation
I am incredibly grateful for the exceptional legal representation provided by Ms. Stephanie Dorn. She recently vacated my felony conviction when other attorneys couldn’t provide me a clear approach to handle my case. Ms. Dorn's broke down all the complexities of my case and made things easy for me to understand, all while guiding me through each step of the vacate process. Thanks to Ms. Stephanie's swift and professional approach, my felony conviction was vacated, granting me a fresh start. I cannot express enough gratitude for her efficient legal representation. She’s now working my last case that is more minor to ensure I have a completely clean record. Ms. Stephanie has opened so many doors for my career by providing me a clean slate. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in need of exceptional legal services. Her dedication and expertise make her an outstanding attorney, deserving of the highest praise.

Exceptional Legal Services and Unwavering Dedication
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your exceptional legal services and unwavering commitment to my case. Your professionalism, expertise, and dedication have had a tremendous impact on my life. Despite the complexities involved with Seattle Courts, you worked tirelessly to have all five of my cases dismissed within a relatively short period of time. Throughout the process, your support and clear communication provided me with a sense of reassurance and peace of mind. Your meticulous attention to detail, strategic thinking, and strong legal skills were truly remarkable and made a significant difference in the outcome. Thanks to your outstanding representation, I can now move forward with confidence, free from the burden of those convictions. I am immensely grateful for all that you have done, and I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone in need of a skilled and dedicated lawyer.

Professional, affordable, effective.
I hired Stefanie over the phone, from out of state, to vacate two old convictions in WA. Success! I recently received the determination on my cases... "VACATED" I did not have to appear which saved me a lot of money. She was very affordable, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I highly recommend her.
Response from Stefanie Dorn June 23, 2022
Thank you, Doug! You were a pleasure to work with, and I'm happy we had so much success!

Best outcome possible
Hired attorney Dorn to vacate two felony convictions from my youth. She quickly got this accomplished by working directly with the prosecutor. Best outcome possible. Glad I made the decision to hire her.

Phenomenal
Stefanie is excellent at her work and super communicative. She is easy to approach, humble and collaborative. She kept me regularly updated without any prompting from my end. She resolved my case in the estimated time frame. Ohh and I did all this via email/phone call with her. As someone with a little kid and busy schedule, I am super thankful that she worked so well virtually! Highly Recommend!!

Highly Reccomend
Ms. Dorn was extremely helpful and transparent through the process of vacating a charge from 10+ years ago. She responded quickly to my questions and explained each step thoroughly and I couldn't be happier with the service and outcome. I highly recommend Ms. Dorn to anyone looking to vacate a prior conviction in the state of Washington.

My complex cases were light work for Ms. Dorn
I've been dealing with two legal issues for well over 15 years, I had just about given up. While other legal representative gave me the runaround or could not support, Ms. Dorn has made both issues go away in a matter of months. She just cleared my second case as of yesterday, and I'm more than happy to say I can pursue my goals without any fear of legal issues jeopardizing my success. Ms. Dorn's remarkable legal expertise and dedication made this possible. Ms. Dorn Provided a fair price upfront and did not try to up sale during either resolution of my two cases. She has a unique talent for breaking down complex legal terms and explaining them in a way that anyone can understand. Moreover, she provided me with multiple options to approach legal matters remotely when I was unable to be there in person in person. If you're in need of a competent and trustworthy attorney, Ms. Dorn is the one to turn to.

Got my rights restored.
Long story short, I have 21 felony points throughout four counties. (No DV’s or sex crimes). Ms. Dorn was instrumental in getting my firearm rights restored. In fact, she was more than instrumental. All I did was pay her, and she did the rest. I figured it was worth a shot, but I never thought it could actually happen for me, and for a couple months, I was convinced I had just thrown my money away on a “maybe”. Because when you’re dealing with the courts, maybe’s are all you get. I knew it would take a few months, but one day, I received an email telling me my motion (for four counties) was approved. I know these reviews are supposed to be a bit more technical, but everything was as straightforward as I’ve stated. I’ll add this: I got my act together over 15 years ago. So don’t think you can keep exhibiting your unemployed behavior and get the same results. It’s been a long time since I had to hire a lawyer, but I’d hire Ms. Dorn again if I needed to. Reasonable, great communication, and she comes with results.

Efficient, Professional, and Helpful
She was willing to walk me through my many questions before taking on my case. Once hired, she immediately got to work, and followed up immediately whenever she needed more details or signatures from me, and kept me updated on the status of my case at all times. We got the outcome we wanted, but I'm confident she would have been the right person to help with any potential hiccups that could have materialized. I recommend her legal services without hesitation.
