Emile and the Oakland team at Dolan Law Firm were exactly the lawyers we needed when I was in my biking accident a little over a year ago.Original recommendation
We had interviewed multiple lawyers prior to assigning one to the case and what stood out the most to my wife and I were these three main qualities.
1. Thorough and Responsive - Set correct expectations
2. Experience matters - They’re very familiar with the process
3. Set us at ease - Friendly and easy to speak to
Being our first time having lawyers, we weren’t too sure how the process would look like and what would go on during the whole process. We asked lots of questions and Emile and his team we’re very patient and walked us through the entire process from beginning to end and even went through some scenarios that weren’t on our minds. Another reason we chose Dolan and their team was how well they set expectations for us. At the end of our first real meeting with the team at Dolan, I knew we could rest easy and they delivered.
I’m really happy with our experience with Dolan Law Firm and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a lawyer!
Last year, I got attacked by a dog. The dog bit off the top of my ear and chunk out the top of my arm. I was referred to Dolan Law Firm and worked with Megan Irish and Quentin Cutlip. My experience with Dolan Law was excellent. Not only were they sympathetic to what happened to me, I knew they really cared about making sure that I was going to be compensated correctly. Megan was really exceptional with communicating and making sure that I understood everything that was going on during my year long case. They were able to negotiate a settlement that was more than I could have imagined. I am truly grateful and can not express enough gratitude for their hard work. I hope that I don't have any more situations where I need a lawyer.. but if I did, I would call Dolan Law first.Original recommendation
I went to seek advice regarding my (previous) contract position and possible breach of contract by my employer. I was assisted by Atty. Mari Bandoma Callado, she discussed my rights thoroughly and I felt very confident after our meeting and was able to set things straight with my employer/agency. I again had to contact her a year later regarding other issues I had with my current job on my upcoming Maternity Leave. I was stressed out because I was getting misleading info from my HR and after meeting with Mari and she helped me understand the current state law/ FMLA policy and I had a better and much clearer understanding that I was given the wrong information from work and I was able to use that to make sure I was able to take the correct amount of leave that I am entitled of. There is nothing worse than a stressed out pregnant lady, and Mari definitely put me at ease and made sure that I should and will get the proper time off I needed to spend time and take care of my children. She is very knowledgable and passionate about her work and I can see that her passion to help people is genuine.Original recommendation
My entire experience with the Dolan Law Firm was great. Recommended to me by a friend, I contacted them after I suffered a dog bite to my face. I initially spoke to Chris to give him my story and since I live in Los Angeles, he thought it would be best to have one of his team members work on my case. Aimee Kirby and her team are the lawyers that were assigned to help me.Original recommendation
I met with Aimee soon after for my consultation. She was very personable and professional - answering any and all questions I had while explaining to me what to expect over the next few months. Going forward, she and her team kept me updated and quickly got back to me with answers to anything else that would come up along the way. ...
The Dolan Firm is a superb law firm. Chris Dolan took my took on my families case when no other attorney would. I knew the case would be challenging and that going against a medical center would deter a lot of attorneys due to the unfair MICRA caps. Chris Dolan told me in the beginning that my case was going to be one that was tough to win but he would take on because of the horrible mal-practice conducted by a doctor on my relative and he deserved justice. I can't say enough about the Dolan Law Firm. Although our case did not result in a large financial payout, my family felt at ease knowing our family got the justice we deserved.Original recommendation
