After first consulting with Dorothea for advice, I hired her to represent me in my divorce case as a military spouse, and I was very pleased with the way she handled my case and with the outcome she achieved for me. Dorothea is very personable, down to earth and easy to talk to. I never had a problem contacting her, whether by phone or email. She worked very hard on my case and kept me informed of everything that was happening along the way.
My case involved complicated military issues, involving my ex's several different retirements from active duty, the national guard and reserves and also VA disability matters. Dorothea was very familiar with most of the retirements, and for the couple complicated issues that came up in my particular case, where she wasn't as familiar, she consulted with a military retirement expert in Georgia, and through a conference call with this gentleman, we both learned a lot about the details of my ex's military retirement accounts and how the military handles them in divorce cases. I can't imagine a military matter that Dorothea wouldn't be able to handle, especially after handling my case.
Dorothea spent many hours and late nights working on my case before trial, and I felt that her billings were very fair. I never felt over-charged; in fact, she gave me a credit for time she spent consulting with the military expert, because she felt that some of the time spent went toward educating herself for my case and for future cases where these issues might come up.
I can only speak of my own experience going through a military divorce, but I was very pleased with Dorothea's handling of my case. I would definitely recommend her to others, and I will call her again for any legal matters that may come up in the future.
