Dear Roy,

I would like to thank you and all team members as well as office staff for helping me defend in this case. It has been a difficult time for me during the last couple of weeks, and now because of this success result, I am able to move forward with my new chapter of life, even a little late at this age 😊 !!!

Again with much appreciation, I wish you all to continue to do the same with a big heart as it was with me, in helping those who are in need of your professional services. Best regards,

- William

Roy Doppelt helped our family with a family law case. We have never needed an Attorney before and Roy and associates helped our whole family through this very tough time. Roy and all his associates explained everything to us and made us feel very comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. Our whole Family highly recommends the law office of Doppelt and Forney

In almost all jobs whether civilian or military a performance review is anticipated or expected. With that being said; I am submitting my review of Damon Forney and giving him my highest recommendation as a Family Law Attorney. Mr. Forney’s performance was exemplary on multiple levels whether in Family Court or Superior Court representing my petitions or requests in support determination hearings. As a retired senior military Officer, I can say Mr. Forney took the time to research the intricacies of military retired benefits and the federal law pertaining to divisions accordingly. Whether a military member, Veteran or civilian reading this recommendation, you can count on Mr. Forney to be diligent, persistent and devoted to finding a favorable outcome in your case. I caution to say win, there are NO winners in marriages that end up in Family Court. Finding the closet to fair and just outcome is what everyone seeks but it will not come easy. The playing field of Family Court is a dangerous and vile environment where you certainly will hear untrue and slanderous things said about you, which can spiral out of control if someone is not there to control the situation. You need someone competent like Mr. Forney who will stick to the facts, procedures and laws put in place to avoid re-creating the wheel, which at times, you will feel is trying to be recreated at every hearing. Sadly as this sounds, when getting married you took on the odds of less than fifty (50) percent chance of success. For whatever reason you wound up in this situation and amicable endings are lower in percentages than a successful marriage. Your life is going in a new direction now, make certain to find someone to help you get settled in a way to help you move on, move forward, and have hope, that person to help you is Mr. Forney.

"I am writing this letter in regards to family law referrals I have sent to Attorney, Roy Doppelt over many years. When I refer my family law cases to him, he pays a referral fee in accordance with the Professional Rules of Conduct and always pays timely.

I feel comfortable referring my family law cases to him since he is a member of the referral panels for family law for the San Diego County Bar Association, North County Bar Association and the Attorney Search Network and all three are California State Bar Certified so you can also be assured you meet the standard of care in referring to his firm.

In addition, he has many qualifications and awards and his firm is rated A+ within San Diego BBB. I plan to continue referring cases to Roy Doppel in the future and wrote this letter as a testimonial regarding referrals I have sent his Office."

"Dear Roy;

Thank you very much again; gratefully yours."

"I first met Roy in 1998 when I hired him to handle my Divorce. My assessment of Roy, was his services were outstanding. Being in the Military, He ensured all my interests were met. This was particularly note worthy since I was stationed in another state. Years later when my former spouse wanted to change the signed Settlement Agreement, I immediately turned to Roy for help. Even after 18 years, Roy remembered me. This time his services were over the top. Roy aggressively worked to solve the issues. His advice was spot on - and he saved me thousands in court costs. Of course this support wouldn't be possible with out staff. It says family law on Roy's email - his staff is family - all of them smart, compassionate and professional. Roy has been my attorney for over 18 years. My recommendation is if you are looking for an attorney - stop. You have found him. Roy, thank you for the advice, professionalism, and common sense problem solving. This business can be frustrating and nerve racking, but your patience and compassion went over the top. God Speed in your future."

"I wholeheartedly recommend Roy for your family law needs. I selected him after speaking with 2 other attorneys in the area. He represented me in my divorce proceeding while I was living abroad. He was thorough and very responsive. Although my case was a bit drawn out & stressful at times, Roy was efficient and considerate. He kept me informed after all court hearings, and he relayed an optimistic, yet realistic time frame for the dissolution. I'm happy that I chose Roy to represent me in my case. I highly recommended him! He and his staff are quick to respond, even since my case has concluded!! "

"Roy has been nothing short of exceptional in his effort and dedication towards protecting our family's rights. He has done more for us than any lawyer we've worked with, and we wish we had found him sooner. We will always appreciate the endless knowledge and diligence he has provided us with our best interests in mind."

- John W.

"I would highly recommend Roy Doppelt and his law firm. Throughout my case, Roy was very honest, upfront, realistic with his approach and communications pertaining to my case. He never promises something he knows he cannot deliver. He is very polite, professional yet aggressive and very balanced in his demeanor and way of handling his cases. He is knowledgable but also does not use his knowledge to mint money from his clients. Roy not only kept me honest with my commitments but also kept me balanced and confident although the opposing party was overtly contentious and unfair in their dealings on several ocassions. Thank you Roy and team for helping me achieve my goals in a stressfree and fair manner."

"Quite simply, if you want the best and most honest representation in matters of family law then Roy Doppelt and his associates are the choice for you. I retained Roy to represent me in a custody case that stretched across the country and spanned five years. Throughout that time Roy provided consistent guidance and insured that I had realistic expectations of what we could accomplish. He aimed for the stars (full legal and physical custody) when I told him that was what I wanted but kept my feet firmly on the ground in terms of expectations.

Roy is the consummate professional and he and his staff did an excellent job of advising me and keeping me informed and connected throughout the five years which included a six month deployment to Afghanistan. He listened to my input and was straightforward about how things would flow and what to expect.

His attention to detail and knowledge of family law is remarkable. Throughout the proceedings, my former spouse tried to slide things past the court and at every turn Roy was always prepared to defeat her efforts. He carries himself extremely well in court and presents his case clearly. Bottom line is that Roy and his firm were most successful on my children’s and my behalf in what was a landmark case in the state of California. If you are looking for a knowledgeable attorney who understands the workings of the legal system, I strongly recommend you consider Roy Doppelt."

"Interested In: Mr. Doppelt has represented me throughout a lengthy custody negotiation involving multiple move-aways which are particularly complex. Roy was extremely thorough in helping me to understand the process and set my expectations. He is extremely accessible and responds quickly to requests for counsel. His representation of me in court was outstanding. He negotiated a very contentious situation with the other party in my case and worked quickly under extremely tight timeframes."

"I can't say enough about how pleased we are with the services of Attorney Roy Doppelt in handling our son's family law issues. Mr. Doppelt's sensitivity and professionalism helped overcome the apprehension we felt in dealing with the legal process. This was especially important since as a military member we were stationed in Europe at the time having to communicate through numerous time zones. Mr. Doppelt patiently and clearly explained all of the details and options we needed to consider to successfully resolve our case. His expertise enabled us to achieve a satisfactory conclusion. I confidently recommend the services of Attorney Roy Doppelt."

- Dennis S., Military Chaplain

"I was a client of Mr. Roy Doppelt for several years in a lengthy family court case spanning back to early 2000 and 2001. It was a trying time for me and I would like to attest to the professional manner in which Mr. Doppelt handled my legal matters. He is easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and prompt to address issues. He always make realistic goals in my case. Mr. Doppelt put me at ease many times, and I was very satisfied with the ultimate outcome of the litigation. So pleased, I have referred many friends to his office for advice with their legal matters.

"Navigating within the legal system is often extremely complex and at times emotionally challenging. As a first time legal client I was uncertain and at times afraid of what to expect. The Law Firm of Doppelt and Forney, APLC, in particular Roy Doppelt, Esq. immediately put me at ease with my case and went on to prove the high level of competence he represents. Roy's command of the law, courtroom presence and ability to achieve my objectives and goals are unmatched. Even beyond all these qualities Roy has a true compassion for each of his clients and will treat you with the utmost respect, honesty and commitment. I strongly encourage you to seek out his services and be assured your legal matters are in the best of hands."

- Kevin R.

"I have worked with Roy Doppelt, Esq. on several family law matters over the past few years and find him to be one of my favorite attorneys to work with. Divorce, more often than not, is an emotional, expensive and uncertain time where no one single side has complete control. Navigating through the process can be made better or worse by your own attorney. Roy is the kind of counsel who gets engaged in your case, provides sound advice and truly strives to minimize client cost while protecting the clients interests."

- Jeff P., C.P.A.

"I have known Roy Doppelt personally and professionally for over thirty years. I find him to be the consummate professional. He has always been extremely attentive to any of my needs, he is easily accessible, always returns my phone calls and I can count on him to give me honest and good legal advice anytime I need it. I appreciate an attorney who gives you easy to understand answers or solutions to any conflict I may have. I also need to know that my attorney has my best interest in mind and will tell me when it may be better to compromise than to continue with a long and expensive drawn out legal battle.

Roy Doppelt provides all of those qualities for me.

I highly recommend him for any legal situation."

- Eric N., Owner

"Several years ago, I had found myself requiring the services of a professional family lawyer. After many inquiries, I chose Roy Doppelt of Doppelt and Forney, APLC based on his reputation for honesty, integrity and superior work ethic. Roy has proven himself to me by being and attorney who possessed the negotiating skills capable of working with opposing counsel both in and out of the courtroom, and his attention to detail coupled with his excellent grasp of family law matters proved to be instrumental in allowing me to properly mitigate my case to the mutual satisfaction of all parties involved. Their entire staff is responsive to individual concerns and every client treated with respect and dignity. I would highly recommend the Law Firm of Doppelt and Forney, APLC and would use them again should I require legal counsel of any kind."

"To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is to attest to the professional service I received from Doppelt and Forney, APLC. I retained Mr. Doppelt as my attorney for my divorce in May 2006 and from the beginning, Mr. Doppelt was helpful, knowledgeable, diligent and trustworthy. Family court is a time of stress and high emotions, but Mr. Doppelt and his staff always provided me with the most courteous and thoughtful professional assistance. Mr. Doppelt always gave me his most honest and expert advice while trying to achieve my objectives. Opposing counsel escalated this case numerous times in a manner very much opposite to Mr. Doppelt's work ethics and even during this time, Mr. Doppelt never wavered form his professionalism.

In summary, Mr. Roy Doppelt is an honorable and sincere Family Law attorney, I and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
