Thank you so much for assisting us through this process. We are truly grateful for the clarity you gave us throughout the process and how smoothly everything went! Thank you.

– Edward and Bren, review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

I contacted the law office of Dorene Kuffer and had my first consultation with Daniel Walton, who in fact, became my attorney and worked my case with great results! Smooth, always in contact, I 100% recommend Kuffer Law and the team as they all have great communication and we had a great experience with them! Thank you.

– Lucia, review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

Dan went above and beyond, was super thorough, and never made me feel like an idiot. 10/10, would recommend!

– Hannah W., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

Excellent service and communication throughout every step. Thank you!

– Scott, review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

I can’t thank Daniel enough for all of his help. He helped make this a much smoother process than I was expecting. I will absolutely reach out to Kuffer Law again if there’s anything else that comes up! 

– Stephanie B., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

I retained Kuffer Law in August after 2 years of no progress in a divorce case. An agreement was reached in October with final decree granted in November. A phenomenal performance by Dorene and her entire staff.

I cannot thank them enough.

– David C., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

– Sam P., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

Dan and Joyce handled my case with good communication, and worked for the smoothest and most efficient process to reach a satisfactory outcome.

– Anonymous, review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

I worked extensively with Ms. Kuffer on my case. Her office staff is readily available and worked to get me in with any questions, either via phone call directly or email within 24hrs, can’t say that for other lawyers offices who I’ve seen struggle to even return a call. When talking out terms with Ms. Kuffer she clearly explained the law to me without using fancy jargon or technical terms. I was overtly grateful for the attention to detail and dedication to resolve the case as quickly as possible. I would definitely recommend her office and service to anyone looking for a professional, responsive, and reliable attorney

– Travis S., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)


So far everything has been wonderful and has put a huge weight off of my shoulders. I originally had Caitlin as my lawyer, she went on leave and was put in the hands of Dorene Kuffer. She is AMAZING! I have nothing but good things to say about this law firm. I like the fact that I can call direct and I get prompt responses. I would recommend them to anyone.

– Kimberly S., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)


I came to Kuffer Law after 2+ years in divorce court, and I cannot say enough good things about this firm. From the intake interview all the way to the resolution of my case, every person I dealt with was professional, knowledgeable, and kind. Ms. Kuffer was a rock, even when I was hopeless that my case would ever be resolved. She gave great advice based on a solid knowledge of the law, and I am so very grateful to her. If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing a divorce/family law attorney, do yourself a favor, and call Kuffer Law.

– Jennifer D., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)


Doreen and her staff helped my thru some post divorce issues. The entire staff was very helpful and responsive to all my questions. Anytime I had a question, no matter how silly or important, I always got a prompt response, no matter what day or time of the day.

– Melissa A., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

When COVID hit, I figured I might as well update my will, etc. They were, quick, efficient, professional, and very friendly. Everything was handled with care and in a timely manner.

– Kathleen M., review on Google My Business(★★★★★)

Dorene guided us through legal guardianship of a minor. Her and her staff were professional, courteous, and kind throughout. Highly recommend.
