This Attorney belongs to the category of Personal injury attorney.
I was involved in car vs. bicycle accident and badly injured. Friend of mine recommended Marjorie Heinrich from Dolan Law Firm for representation. Marjorie handled all the aspects regarding my accident including hospitals/doctors/insurance companies/experts. I was well informed about the process and issues that were involved in the case. Marjorie provided very strong representation with her extensive experience. At the end of the day case was resolved to my satisfaction. I could have not asked for better attorney that cared and worked very hard on the case. I highly recommend Marjorie for representation of personal injury cases.
The worst law firm out there! Avoid at all costs! They never replied to my emails or calls and never got back to me. They left me hanging for an entire month with no communication and decided to just bail on my case and then when I called today asking what in the world is going on they tried to lie their way to innocence and then finally admitted to bailing on me. What a bunch of crooks! 0/5 stars.
I agree w/drphldds and the others that gave a one (1) start! My case was solid and they blew my case and I see a lot of 5 star ratings from folks who never had a case, just talk to people! What a joke to make themselves look better when they really do not care about anything but $$$. They will rotated your case w/"temp's" and leave you dry! Chris Dolan only cares about himself!!!
If you're reading this, you're probably looking for a lawyer. I'm writing this review to tell you to look no further. The Dolan Law Firm lawyers and staff will fight for you. They are honest from the beginning and actually care about justice and holding responsible parties accountable. Finding lawyers is easy. Finding lawyers who have experience, a relentless drive to succeed, a proven track record, and listen to you is not as easy, but you've found them at the Dolan Law Firm.
I have attended several events at the Dolan Firm (both in Oakland and San Francisco). Dolan Law has generously donated their law offices to host Filipino Bar Association board meetings and MCLE events. Both offices are conveniently located near public transportation and have a very professional yet warm atmosphere. They also have a wonderful reputation and I do not hesitate in recommending them to individuals in need of legal assistance.
Chris Dolan and his firm went above and beyond for me. They underdstood what a hard time I was going through and did evrrything they could to help me get what I needed. They are professional and I highly reccomend them.
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.
My step daughter had a situation that required probably not Mr. Dolan's personal attention, but that is what we got. Mr. Dolan drove all the way from SF to fresno Cal. to handle this case. He was so professional, helpful and kind to my step daughter. Mr. Dolan's office handled the case and produced for us a great outcome where everyone involved came out a winner. I can never thank Chris Dolan enough for the help and comfort that he gave to my family at a time when we really needed it. Great man with a great business. Forever greatfule, Floyd (Butch) Allen
Chris represented me in a case back in 2005- excellent lawyer with a high moral character. I have recommended him to friends and would continue to do so.
I found myself in a major semi truck accident and then another highway collision just a month after. My cases were super complicated with insurance companies fighting each other and fighting me about coverage. I was at the lowest point of my life but what gave me hope and strength were the unwavering support and advice from my attorneys Megan Irish, Quinton Cutlip and their incredibly diligent paralegal Daniela Martinez. Everything was organized all the way through to settlement. I would refer this office to any friend or family member in need of superb legal representation.
Ambulance chaser, struggling families eraser--what a guy!
From the moment our family contacted the DOLAN LAW FIRM, and were placed in the able hands of Jeremy Jessup and his team, we have had the MOST positive experience we could imagine. The professional, positive, competent and responsive work of this firm has been amazing, and of such great value during a time of great personal crisis. We are indebted to Jeremy and his colleagues beyond words and without reservation.
The legal professionals practicing here are the best in the business! As the victim, it was a difficult process to go through, however, with the support of my team - Vanessa and Emile - it was well worth it. My case was resolved effectively and efficiently. I HIGHLY recommend this firm.
The Dolan law firm does outstanding work! I would highly recommend him for all of your personal injury needs!
Dolan law firm handled my case professionally and with expertise. They made sure my needs were met and that I felt comfortable and reassured the entire time!
I inquired about some employment issues my friend was having at her workplace and spoke with Mari Bandoma. She was very responsive and supportive in helping to get a better understanding of the situation and whether or not my friend had a case. She was very knowledgeable and was able to provide a wonderful and helpful experience.
Dolan Law Firm has generously offered space in their office for Sunday Streets to host meetings and volunteer trainings. Sunday Streets is a program that promotes healthy activity and sustainability by opening miles of city streets for people to get out and get active in San Francisco Neighborhoods. We are run by the small non-profit Livable City. We have a small office space and limited budget to spend on space rentals. Dolan Law has generously hosted us on several occasions when we needed space larger than we have available. The staff has always been friendly, professional, and as accommodating as possible. It's great to see a law firm supporting local community organizations and investing in the neighborhood. Thanks for all you do!
As is in the court room, judge every character based upon the evidence presented. Listen to the verbal testimony and analyze the actions that transpire. Well, thankfully, I didn't have to go as far as the courtroom. Vanessa Deniston with her expertise and sound input helped reinforce tactics for me to conclude my workplace dilemma without needing to proceed with a lawsuit. During all that, she was prompt to accept my followup calls in my time of need and displayed genuine, verbal sympathy to my unfortunate, now fortunate, situation. What is truly admirable is Vanessa's candor. Not in the form of being dry and blunt, but being concerned and realistic for your well-being. If you have become the unlucky candidate of a legitimate workplace issue worthy of the law and are uninformed how to proceed, I wholeheartedly recommend Vanessa to any employee in distress. Vanessa, if you're reading this, THANK YOU for the help!
Thank you Vanessa Deniston,I will always remember your willingness to help me during my time of need. It takes a very special person to leave her important work taking time to consult me on the phone. You are on of a kind,The Dolan Law firm should be proud of you to have you. Please accept my sincere thanks for your patience and taking your time out to help me. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family.
I highly recommend the Dolan Law firm. Hands down, there is not a better personal injury attorney around. Chris Dolan is an expert in his field. He was truly amazing, honest, compassionate, professional, down to earth and very responsive. My accident involved being hit by a Yellow Cab while walking in a cross walk in San Francisco. Soon after my accident Chris and his assistant, Guillermo Bustillo came to our home to make sure I was doing ok. They spent more than 2 hours at my home taking down all necessary information and quickly agreed to represent me. Chris Dolan was extremely courteous, sympathetic and empathetic, and he was truly concerned for my well-being. The Dolan Law firm was professional and knowledgeable during the entire case process. He made sure all of my physical therapy costs and medical bills were covered, and I was never once harassed by the Defendants. The process was smooth and seamless. They took care of everything. The legal process was performed with perfection, care and expertise. Deadlines were always met and I never worried how my case was being handled. My case took nearly two years, and as we were approaching the end and close to a settlement, a curve ball was thrown by Yellow Cab – they filed for bankruptcy. Chris immediately called to reassure me that all of my out-of-pocket expenses would be handled and I did not need to worry. This would not be the end of my case. Given the drastic change of course in the settlement proceedings, he quickly developed a new plan of action which resulted in a fair compensation for me. The insurance company wanted to recoup all of their expenses. But, Chris Dolan and Guillermo Bustillo negotiated with the insurance company. They were able to successfully reduce the amount sought down to almost nothing! He further went above and beyond and personally called me to inform me he was reducing his firm fees. Since no one could have expected Yellow Cab to file bankruptcy, Chris said he wanted to make sure I received as much compensation as possible. This case was not about “making money” but instead about helping me. I highly recommend Chris Dolan to represent your legal matters. Chris Dolan’s drive, intellect and compassion set him apart from any other attorney I know. He truly cares about his clients and their best interests.
DON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ATTORNEY AND HIS FIRM 5.0 stars Chris Dolan of the Dolan Law Firm is the most competent and successful attorney, bar none, that has ever represented me, and the best attorney to whom I have ever referred business. I was in an automobile accident and I can't say enough as to how I was treated by Chris and his team, and the ultimate results they provided to me for my case far exceeded my expectations. I have since referred many, many people to Mr. Dolan & his law firm and continue to be impressed with their results, their demeanor, and their desire to represent their clients in the best possible manner. I highly recommend Chris Dolan and the Dolan Law Firm for representation in your legal matters, and their is no other lawyer with Mr. Dolan's drive , compassion, intellect, humility and work ethic.
Upon arriving at Dolan Law Firm I was greeted with a smile from the woman at the reception desk. Everyone I met was warm and approachable. After a couple of minutes I was greeted by Isabelle Tan, the attorney handling my consultation. She took her time to clearly explain how the whole process will work and I never felt rushed. She made certain that I understood each step before she moved on. After an informative and relaxed consultation I decided to pursue my case with Dolan. All communications were answered in a very timely manner. Most emails were even answered within minutes. Aimee Kirby, the managing attorney, and Isabelle were great and kept me up to date on the progress of the case from start to finish. I've had a case handled by a different law firm in the past and I felt rushed and even irritation at times from the attorney when I didn't understand something and needed to ask for clarification. That was not a pleasant experience. I wish I knew of Dolan then. Dolan made dealing with legal matters a very comfortable experience for me. I highly recommend them and will definitely seek their experience again if the need arises.
My experience with the Dolan Law Firm was absolutely amazing. If you're looking for a firm that makes you feel like family, then look no further because the staff at the Dolan Law Firm is second to none. Jeremy Jessup handled my case and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney to represent me. Jeremy was constantly in contact with me in regards to my case and kept me updated every step of the way. Whenever I spoke with Jeremy about my case, I finished the conversation comfortable and confident with the situation. I would recommend the Dolan Law Firm to anyone looking for legal counsel. A+
I recently needed a litigation lawyer to assist with the recovery of funds that were owed to me by a company I had done business with in the past. After researching different law firms in the Bay Area, I was referred to Dolan by a friend who went to law school with Ethan Niedermeyer. During my consultation, Ethan and Jeremy Jessup were very professional and laid out my options. After Dolan accepted my case, working with Dolan Law Firm was a pleasure and I sat back while Ethan and Jeremy went to work on my case and consistently provided updates when needed. I was able to recover the majority of my funds in a timely matter, and am grateful for what Dolan Law Firm was able to do for me. Highly recommend working with this firm.
The worst! Even threatened me for my past review - freedom of speech! His firm wasted time w/my case, time and time again, blew it as a result! He must pay others to give him a good review!!! He must also pay to have all the bad reviews removed, after my case I posted a review and each time he has it removed! Others I know have had the same experience!
HORRIBLE LIARS!! WASTE OF TIME!! Don't bother with these folks!! They are a BIG Unprofessional waste of time!!
If your group is a non-profit/local organization, consider hosting your organization's next event at no charge at Dolan Law Firm. A special thank you to Dolan Law Firm for generously opening its San Francisco office to host a recent event for the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California (FBANC). The size of the conference room and interior décor with community themed artwork was the ideal space to feature a panel of distinguished attorneys who spoke about topics of importance to the Filipino-American legal community. The team at Dolan, through the leadership of Dolan attorney and FBANC Executive Board Member Mari Bandoma Callado, was very professional and accommodating. They went the extra mile to help us set up the check-in station, speaker podium, food/refreshments, tables, and chairs for the panel and attendees. We appreciate Dolan’s continued support of FBANC and its never-ending commitment to our community.
Chris Dolan and his team took on a very big case on my behalf against CalTrans. They believed passionately in the rightness of the case and did everything humanly possible to win. It was a staggering amount of work. We lost on a technicality due to the jurors not being allowed to ask a particular question based on motions made by CalTrans that the entire success of our case came down to. After the trial, several jurors told us that had they been able to ask that question and learned the truth they would have filed in our favor. Chris argued the case passionately and convincingly and his staff and colleagues were indefatigable in their support. I have nothing but praise for the Dolan firm.
Highly recommend Dolan Law Firm
The intake case manager kept making incorrect references to the info I had provided. I had to repeat several times that I was hit by a car and that I was riding a 250cc scooter - unpleasant phone etiquette, felt as if he's falling asleep on there other end.
I highly recommend the Dolan Law Firm and I am extremely thankful to Vanessa Deniston. Working with Vanessa individually proved her to be strong-willed, confident, and fought passionately while representing me. I had a great rapport with her immediately and knew she was secure, capable, and committed to my case as well as myself. Vanessa was very good about her direct communication and keeping me informed about what to expect in the next steps of my case. Chris Dolan, Vanessa Deniston, Emil Davis and Vanessa's assistant Evette Padilla work extremely well together and made me feel very confident that they were going to accomplish what needed to be done. As a team, they aggressively represented me and fought to protect my interests. We had a very positive outcome and I am truly thankful.
I highly recommend the Dolan Law firm as they offer world class services to make sure they provide their clients with the best guidance. Their lawyers are experts in the field who will make sure to make their clients feel comfortable during every step of the process.
Poorly responsive- needs improvement in management- potentially good be good
The Dolan Law Firm was extremely generous to donate their space to the San Francisco Bay Area Women's Environmental Network for a panel we hosted on the California drought. As a volunteer-based nonprofit, we have a limited budget and no office space of our own, so we were extremely grateful for this opportunity. The event was one of the best we have ever hosted - we filled the room and received rave reviews from event attendees. Their friendly, coordinated staff, beautiful space, and professional atmosphere made this event especially enjoyable for everyone. It's great to see a local business giving back like this - it makes it so much easier for us to carry out our mission of enhancing stewardship of the environment and fostering a strong community of women in the environmental sector. We'd host another event here in a heartbeat.
We sought legal advice from Chris Dolan at the Dolan Law Firm when my family and I were in a motor vehicle accident. The team provided exceptional service. They were prompt with their responses and provided detailed guidance as to what the process would be for our situation. I would highly recommend anyone to contact Chris Dolan at the Dolan Law Firm if you've ever been in a motor vehicle accident and require representation. - Olivia McBride
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. 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!
Megan Irish is a passionate defender of the law and I've been very impressed by her integrity and devotion to serving her client's best interests. In my work as a legal assistant for the last ten years, Mrs. Irish is one of a select group of attorneys I have known who are both excellent in their jobs and a pleasure to interact with. I'd recommend Mrs. Irish's work to anyone seeking legal representation in her field.
El bufete de abogados Dolan es uno de los mejores, Lo recomiendo altamente. Tienen un buen servicio al cliente, Son honestos desde el principio y realmente se preocupan por hacer justicia.
You'll perhaps remember Dolan Law from the reflective leg bands they generously provide on bike to work day. I was here a for a Sunday Streets meeting, with ample bike parking upstairs. The offices are attractively decorated with exposed brick and hardwood. These folks are very knowledgeable about bike accidents and law of tort. If I ever suffer from a close encounter of the beer truck kind, I'll seek help here.
My review is solely on the event space. As a non-profit board member, it's tough to find available space and for a budget to meet on a monthly basis. Luckily, Dolan Law Firm offers event spaces for free for non-profits. It's walking distance from Bart, impeccably decorated and the conference room on the second floor is spacious, seating a range from 8-10 people. They also had a space in the middle of the room with a very long conference table that looked like it could seat up to 20-30 people with ample standing room and a full kitchen. I would definitely use this space to hold future events, whether it's for professional development or a social mixer.
I came to the Dolan Law Firm multiple times seeking advice, once for an injury with my daughter and another for my employment and leave of absence issues. I was assisted by Attorney Mari Bandoma Callado, she was very quick in responding back to me and you can tell that she was very knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. Both times Mari was helpful and took the time to make sure that I fully understood the regulations and my rights under FMLA. I am extremely happy with the service and advice that I received and would highly recommend this firm to anyone.
Great customer service and very nice office. I run a nonprofit organization in the Bay Area, and we were looking for a place where our board of directors could meet. The Dolan Law Firm was extremely gracious and allowed us to hold a meeting in one of their stylish conference rooms. The entire floor has been dedicated to social justice, which is apparent by the decorative memorabilia from public interest causes. All of our directors were very impressed by the decor and awards lining the brick walls.
Dolan law helped me with my personal injury case. They work hard, are very thorough and professional, and I was greatly satisfied with the outcome of my case.
My experience with the Dolan Law Firm was smooth and painless from start to finish. I was treated with courtesy, honesty and professionalism throughout the entire process. My team fought for a settlement that was fair, equitable and the best part timely! My team consisted of Chris Dolan and Guillermo Bustillo -- all of whom were professional and knowledgeable and wonderful to deal with. I know I could not have made it without them. I would recommend the Dolan Law Firm to anyone requiring professional legal advice or assistance. Thank You!
The best lawfirm in california. Thanks for helping me win my case.
Contacted the Dolan Law Firm and spoke to Maricela. Excellent service and professionalism. I would highly recommend this law firm.
Chris and Aimee at Dolan Law are nothing short of amazing! Talk to them first before you go anywhere else. You'll be glad that you did.
Megan Irish, Esq. was excellent in her determination, professionalism, and understanding in righting the wrongs in my accident claim. Her hard work and friendly demeanor made me feel at ease and I knew that I had the best person for the job. Injured? Call Dolan Law. Then ask for Megan Irish.
The Dolan Firm handled a wrongful death lawsuit for my family last year, and I cannot begin to tell you how well my case was handled. Whenever I called there was never a problem getting in touch with my attorney Quinton Cutlip. If he wasn't in the office I left a message, and he contacted me right away; that means a lot at a troubling time. Also, his assistant Daniela Martinez was always available for questions in Quinton's absence. I strongly recommend this firm.
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. 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. They were able to negotiate a much better settlement than I could have thought of. I am grateful for their time and persistence on my case. I felt that they were representing me as if I was someone they knew and cared about for a long time. I hope that I will not need their services again in the future, but if something should happen to me, they would be the first firm that I would go to. Thank you again!
Numerous people referred me to Chris Dolan when I needed to speak to an attorney regarding a potential wrongful death action. During my initial meeting, Chris explained the law and my options clearly. After the meeting, I felt that Chris and his associates were going to competently handle my case. The Dolan Law Firm conducted research about my potential case quickly and informed me of my options. In the end, we decided not to file a law suit but the Dolan Law Firm still helped me deal with the insurance companies. I would highly recommend this office to others. Chris, Guillermo, and Jeremy were easy to deal with and answered my questions promptly. Even though, I did not become a client, the office still helped me deal with all the paperwork which I was in no condition to deal with after having suffered a tragic loss. I would not hesitate to use this firm in the future.
My experience with the Dolan Law Firm was exceptional. Mari Bandoma is an amazing attorney and I would recommend her to everybody. She is very personable and cares a lot about her clients. She is very educated and explained to me all the steps of the process so I can be more comfortable with my situation. I am very impressed by the advice that was given to me and the amount of attention I got. Thank you Mari Bandoma!
The Dolan Law Firm has been an intricate part of leveling the playing field for me and my Family. There were a couple of cases of discrimination and assault the Dolan Law Firm handled for me. The Dolan Law Firm intervened, and treated my family with the utmost respect. All the communication between us was explained clearly and swiftly. We always knew what was happening and what was going to happen next. We were given options on how to handle our case and were supported 100% with the decisions we made. This was very important to us! They are more than a law firm for us, they are more like Family!
Hard working, very friendly and knowledgeable law firm. Will never hire anyone else. When you find the best keep the best. Thanks for everything thing guys!!
The greatest misconception and one I take offense to is hearing a personal injury attorney being called an "ambulance chaser". I suffered a horrible, life changing accident due to the negligence of another and if it weren't for Chris Dolan and the Dolan Law Firm, I'm not certain where I might be now. Chris treated me and my case, from the onset, like something that had happened to him personally and like a matter of life or death. He walked, talked, lived and breathed my case for nearly 4 years. His brilliance and extensive knowledge in both law as well as the medical field was a gross advantage to him winning a nearly 3 month jury trial against the City of San Francisco for me. Through it all, his focus remained clear and obvious. It was all me and what what would deliver the greatest outcome for my situation. I've often heard others complain that lawyers get such a large % of an award but as far as I'm concerned, every penny & more is earned. Prior to this experience, I had no idea how much it takes to win a case or the tremendous expense and time which goes into it. All of which is absorbed on the front end by the attorney, with no guarantee of a positive outcome. Chris believes in justice and righting the wrongs. He was my voice when no one seemed to hear my words. He fearlessly and furiously stood up to an entity that could have easily mowed me over with trickery and outright lies. Chris had enough patience for the both of us when I would loose mine to keep going. I have never met another human being better at what he does than Chris Dolan is at protecting and fighting for his clients. He is one of the most brilliant attorneys of his time with a proven track record of his successful outcomes. He pours 100% into every case and selectively takes on many others shy away from. Never afraid of a challenge and always ready to take on even the largest corporate "bully", Chris Dolan and the Dolan Law Firm is better than the best! I would want nobody else in my corner if I ever find myself in a situation again needing a personal injury attorney. Thank you Chris from the bottom of my heart!!! You helped me to get back so much of what that accident took from me. Now, 18 years later, my gratitude and appreciation is as strong as it was the very lucky day I walked through the doors of the Dolan Law Firm for the very first time!! If you're looking for the best, go no further. You've found the firm around!!
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.
Vanessa Deniston of Dolan Law is phenomenal! I don't ever bother to write reviews, but I'm making an exception here because I'm so grateful for Vanessa's assistance. I wish that I could give more than 5 stars for both her outstanding legal service and her genuine concern about my well-being throughout my case. Vanessa proved to be an incredibly skillful attorney, and she was consistently communicative, knowledgeable, and reliable. More importantly, she sincerely cares about her clients. Thank you very much, Vanessa!
