who we are

Family law matters are highly personal, which is what makes them so difficult. They are also emotionally-packed situations that do not always come with clear answers, which compounds the sense of sadness and uncertainty. Whether you are facing a civilian or military divorce, a child custody challenge, or a support modification action, you need to work with an attorney who will make your best options clear to you and then fight to help you achieve them.

Mr. Von Dohlen represented me for a divorce in 2017. When I first contacted him and informed him I am active duty, he immediately responded with an offer to take my case.

Very professional and would absolutely recommend his services!
