found myself needing the services of an attorney for a DUI. Like you reading this, I had no idea how to find one. After reading some stellar reviews, I called Robert Dodell. The man, first off, was available to see me quickly. I was scared, wanted to get help with a resolution. He told me straight up that he might be able to get me off, but needed to get into it first. He did not pull any punches, clearly telling me what was required penance from the State should I be convicted. His fee was reasonable. I never felt anything was out of the ordinary for his services. This man did all due diligence. He called me frequently, was available whenever I had a question. Still, I was prepared for the entire penalty. This included an interlock system, a night in jail, exorbitant fine and alcohol classes. He found a loophole in my case which I will not go into here. This loophole caused the State to present a plea deal. This deal removed the DUI, interlock device, additional night in jail and gave me a more affordable fine. Unreal. This attorney is the real deal. I would recommend him to anyone requiring this type of defense. On top of all this, he is truly a very nice person. No arrogance ever noted. I never write reviews, but felt the need to share my story and this mans name to anyone else who may find themselves in the same predicament as I have.
Robert helped me with a traffic matter that I was quite concerned about. His friendly and affable manner immediately put me at ease and it was clear he knew his stuff and the process we would be going through. The end result was the best I could possibly hope for and I give him full credit for that. I would happily recommend him to any friend or family member caught in the same situation. He's a good man and he does a good job.

Robert is the only lawyer I know who cares about his clients!
Robert will fight for you he helped me fight a felony charge , I was facing nearly up to 2 years in prison he got the charges dropped and I only did 29 days...
I was put in touch with Robert, and after a phone call outlining what my situation was a meeting was planned. Robert was absolutely professional with my legal advice and needs, and albeit I was probably a little needy with questions, he was always more than willing to listen and answer. He gave realistic timeframes, realistic conditions, and didn't really sugar coat the situation which in my opinion is what you need. Hes a straight a shooter and obviously has experience backing him. I would absolutely recommend Robert to anyone, and hopefully not, but if I need any future counsel - will be keeping his number. Thanks Robert!
Excellent lawyer. My family was in touch with him on a weekly basis, with Robert answering all their questions and concerns. He was very empathetic and supportive throughout the process, communicating and leaving no doubt that things would be okay. We are happy to refer him and use his services in the future.

I was personally represented by Mr.Dodell today in court for three counts of DUI..one being an extreme DUI... after all was said and done..all three counts we're dismissed and I walked out with only pleading to tresspassing..and attend alcohol classes..I highly recommend this very well respected attorney. He made me feel really like he was giving his all and wasn't on THEIR side..I've had many attys in my Life..but none of them even come close to Mr.Dodell where dignity and respect for their client are concerned.. Investing in this man will definitely make your life and future well worth it.. Thanks Mr.DOdell..
for whatever reason you need legal services, for my experience with Robert has made the process painless, and professional.
After several years of consulting different lawyers,, finally me and my husband found the one attorney who knew how to manage our case exceptionally well. Robert is definitely very knowledgeable and is someone you can trust. He managed the termination of parental rights and subsequent adoption of our 11 year old son. Robert responded every question we had, and keep us informed of every step during our case. His paralegal, Donna, is very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable as well.I highly recommend him to anyone.Thank you again Robert for making it possible!
Robert managed the adoption of our 11 year old boy from beginning to final adoption. I thought that he was great. He is friendly, experienced, knowledgeable and is somebody with whom you can talk. He returns calls and is efficient. In addition his legal secretary Donna is superb. All in all, fantastic job.
Very helpful and nice!
Robert was very helpful during my case. He was able to refer me to resources that ultimately helped resolve my case with the best ending circumstances considering my charges. He consulted with me frequently and explained in detail what I should expect during the process. I am grateful for all his help during a difficult time in my life.

I had a very unusual case that needed special attention, Mr. Robert Dodell was highly recommended by a fellow attorney that informed me Mr. Dodell specialized in those matters. Robert Dodell listened to all of my concerns, paid very close attention to detail and answered all my questions completely, he was very knowledgeable and took on my case with the up most professionalism and courtesy. He kept me well informed throughout the entire process. My case went smoothly and is resolved and behind me. Thank you Robert!
I cannot say enough great things about Robert. He went above and beyond simply handling my case, which he handled professionally and as well as it could have been. He kept me posted every step of the way. He gave me a clear understanding of all of my options, as well as any potential advantages or obstacles that would surface. He gave me insightful and well-intentioned recommendations, always with my best interests and wishes in mind.The result of my case was absolutely the best that I could have hoped for, and has presented me with the best opportunity to continue on with my life, and to continue the pursuit of my dreams.He also took a personal interest in my well being, reaching out to me, like a family member, close friend, or a loved one would, if he did not hear from me for some time. He was crucial in reassuring my family that all would be well, while not violating any of the privacy and confidentiality afforded to my by attorney client privilege.Even with my case over, and my having moved 2,200 miles away recently, he called me yesterday just to see how I was doing.I consider Robert much more than my attorney. He has become a good friend, and I recommend him highly to anybody in need of legal representation.Thank you again, Robert.-Greg
Robert pays attention to detail and is always easy to reach. He's friendly and provides great advice.
Mr dodell where do I start he been tremendous helping my family in adopting my grandson, 3 years old step grandson legally. I been able to put him on my health insurance as soon as we got legal rights before the adoption is even finalized. He does take personal calls which is unusual for a lawyer and he didn't charge me a consult fee. He took our case and made us feel comfortable from day 1. Also his assistant Donna Mc Mannus is very helpful keeping us updated with emails and voicemails. I thought the financial aspect of the adoption was reasonable. When he I saw how he is very talkative ( sorry Robert) I knew he is an excellent lawyer. Well embarrassingly he also helped me in a criminal manner. I was panicked and I called him and he took our case and got my loved one out of jail within 5-6 hours. He personally drove down right away to the jail which impressed me. I'm personally forever grateful to this man! Oh my loved one got probation positive outcome
Robert did an outstanding job, didn't give up when my motion was denied and got the judges decision reversed and won my case
March 26, 2017Mr. Dodell is an outstanding Lawyer He helped my Son with his charges and was there every step of the way I strongly recommend Mr. Dodell to anyone that wants a great Lawyer.
We recently worked with Robert for an adoption case through foster care. When our case plan changed to adoption, I had many legal questions and didn't know where to begin. Robert was incredibly helpful and quickly responded to any and all of my voicemails and emails. He walked us through the whole process step by step! I highly recommend Robert-- he helped make our adoption journey stress free!
Robert Dodell got me out of an assault charge that happened as a result of a freak occurrence. He was very capable. Recently, I called him to consult on a traffic ticket. His advice, enabled me to avoid paying for the ticket and keeping it off my record. His advice was extremely valuable. I recommend Robert Dodell without reservation.

I had a personal injury case and Mr. Dodell was great! From the beginning I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He did everything you would expect, like: dealing with the insurance company; negotiating a good settlement and keeping me from being bothered with needless calls. He also did things I did not expect. for example, answering his phone at 10PM. I just had a question and thought I would leave him voice mail, but he answered. I was a bit embarrassed to call him so late but he said not to worry about it. He answered my question thoroughly and patiently. I say patiently because over the course of the case, I had many questions. Each time he answered completely and fully. In the end, he treated me fairly, got excellent results and treated me like I was the customer.
I was arrested in November 2015 and had some pretty heavy charges as it was a drug case. I am not your run of the mill criminal just made a very stupid decision. Robert took my case at a very reasonable cost and worked magic somehow. He is very smart and kept me out of jail when there wasn't much to work with. I had 2 -Felony 2 charges that no doubt carried jail time. Robert kept me from going to jail and i am currently serving probation...for these 2 cases. I am indebted to Robert. He is very personable and easy to get along with. He does everything he says he will do and makes you feel like you have someone on your side at all times. He always returns phone calls promptly and cares about his clients. If you chose Robert for your criminal case , you would be maki ng one of the smartest decisions you could ever make. Trust me, I have spent the last 8 months with Robert helping me with my case. He will represent you well. I would hire him again if I needed him. He has background in many areas of the law. You would not regret hiring him. Thanks Robert for being a great lawyer and for genuinely caring what happens to me. I cannot thank you enough for "SAVING MY LIFE" and working so tirelessly for me to keep my freedom. As I am happy to add this review to Google, I wanted to add that once my probation started June 17, 2016, Robert was able to help me secure an Interstate Transfer out of Arizona and back home to Illinois. I was moved back home and everything transferred by mid-August 2016. I am beginning the new year now with my fines paid and only commmunity service on a 3 year probation. Because of Robert I have a new and more enriched life than I have ever had. He paved the way for me to have this and for that I am eternally grateful. Robert can and will get you to right path...i guarantee you his efforts will always be in his clients favor. They were certainly in mine.Thank you again Robert. You not only saved me and my freedom but you helped me get to where i needed to be and my life could not be happier or any better than its going right now. Your a wonderful attorney but i also feel I have found a lifelong friend in you. May 2017 bring you good health and great success.
Excellent attorney! Robert has worked with us for several years and helped us through two very long and exhausting foster-adoptions. He and his legal assistant Donna went above and beyond numerous times and I cannot recommend him enough.
Why hire anyone else when you can hire the BEST!I hired Mr. Dodell when facing some serious drug charges while on probation. He went to bat for me and made the process go really smooth for me. Mr. Dodell went above and beyond what I expected, he really cared. A couple of years later he went to court and had all of my civil rights restored. I not only hired a great attorney, but made an awesome friend.
I met Robert Dodell 5 years ago and hired him for a personal family issue. He was so kind and explained every step of the process with great knowledge. Robert made me feel that my family member was in the best legal hands I could have hired. What impressed me the most was his communication and ability to listen and help with any concerns or questions I had. I would recommend Robert Dodell as a lawyer and a genuine human being!
Robert was referred to us as one of the top lawyers for guardianship/adoption. We met for a consultation, from the beginning we were impressed. He was knowledgeable, compassionate and took his time, listened to our case answered all our questions and concerns and even researched information for us during the consultation. We hired him on the spot. Throughout our case Robert kept us informed throughout each step of the process. He did an outstanding job and in the end we were able to adopt our 2 grandchildren. I would also like to commend his assistant Donna McManus, together they are a great team.
I spoke with Mr. Dodell about a traffic violation, and must say he was extremely helpful and I felt I was in good hands with his recommendations. I...
