My attorney Jamey Dolowich was honestly the best attorney I have ever had. He took the time to speak to me, really hear and understand my case, and instantly answered any questions I had. He came to visit me almost immediately after he was assigned to my case, while I was incarcerated and awaiting my hearing, I had beeen through the system before and I was expecting the worst, but luckily for me, I received the best; Jamey Dolowich.
He made me feel extremely comfortable being honest with him, I told him every detail about my case, and with no judgement, he listened to what I had to say, and then made a game plan for me.When I talked to Jamey I felt like I was talking to my brother or my best friend. Just honestly confiding my fears into someone who wanted to help me. No judgement, no criticism, just honestly there to help me out of this bad situation I had gotten myself into. He gave my case the time it needed and deserved and was able to find a legal loophole that allowed my case to be dismissed completely!
I would recommend Jamey Dolowich to anyone! He is kind, caring, thorough, very knowledgeable, and very driven. He is truly there on your side to help you, he's honestly the best attorney I've ever dealt with in my ten years of experience with the court system. ...I'm honestly surprised he doesn't have a wait list, yet.
Just 5 stars? They deserve more.
Unfortunately, earlier this year, I was online searching reviews and looking for an attorney to get help for my son and promised myself, if I found a great attorney, I’d take the time to let others know as well.
My son had very serious charges against him, 7 felonies and over 1 million dollars bail and I knew he was innocent.
I met with several attorneys before meeting with Jamey and Dylan and I had a criteria that was important to me.
• an expectation of communication and updates during the process
• a willingness to seriously investigate my sons account of what happened
• a belief in seeking out and willing to work for the best outcome , including trial and for the game plan to not change because an offer was on the table.
• A belief in my son’s innocence, until proven otherwise and that the outcome on his life was worth doing whatever it would take to fight
• A level of care for both my son and I
• An attorney that seemed truthful that I could put my trust in
• An attorney that wasn’t going to say one thing ( before hired ) and then another thing, 3 weeks later
These guys were all of the above and more.
After meeting with them once and setting up follow up, they had gone to the jail on their own and met with my son. They acknowledged the seriousness of the charges but also the hope in the system, investigations and hopeful outcomes.
Any time I called them, a returned call within the day, always.
They had an awesome private investigator that was on the case immediately.
They treated me and my son with respect and care, while we were going through such a dehumanizing and difficult thing and I will always be thankful for that.
I could go on and on, truly , but the other part you also want to know is…
All charges dropped.
In spite of offers made by the court, these wonderful attorneys did not lower their standards or expectations to take an offer just to close the case and go on to the next . They were willing to go to trial before accepting any offer that wasn’t what we all believed in and felt was the best outcome for my son.
These are the guys everyone “ hopes” they get when they hire an attorney .
My son was in a physically abusive relationship and “ the day before” this occurred, he confided in me that he couldn’t take the abuse anymore and wanted to leave. We had a plan that day to remove his things from their shared apartment when he got off work and at the last minute, he decided he needed more time, so that on his exit, he didn’t leave any personal items, vehicles behind because she would destroy them. Zoom ahead 24 hours and she physically attacks him when she learns he wants to leave and then sets him up with the police.
Please, if you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship… get out now, tomorrow could be too late.
…. DID I SAY GREAT ATTORNEYS AND ALL CHARGES DROPPED ?
They’re nice guys, truly and they have a high level of care/ respect that they treat clients/families with. They will keep you in the loop. They will work their tails off to get you the best outcome and they know what they’re doing and they’re great at it.
These guys were the best from start to finish.
I was wrongfully accused and charged by the DA with a serious misdemeanor crime, thanks to my ex-wife! I was caught unawares.
The case was filed against me last September 2016. I have never been in trouble with law before. I have been a law abiding citizen
all my life and this was a whole new ballgame for me. What am I to do? Fast forward, I already hired two criminal defense lawyers here in Salinas. In both instances, these two criminal defense lawyers were telling me to face the music so to speak and be accountable for my actions. They told me implicitly with the former attorney and explicitly with the latter attorney that there is no way out for me with regards my misdemeanor case except through a conviction of a lesser charge via plea bargain. Nothing was being offered on the table by the DA around this time February 2017. This was when I took a chance and called the office of Taylor and Dolowich. I was bleeding financially paying exorbitant lawyer fees. I was physically, mentally and emotionally drained on the brink of hopelessness because if I get convicted or agree to a plea bargain deal, my life, my liberty and my livelihood will go down in flames and become KAPUT! Atty. Jamey Dolowich together with his partner Atty. Dylan were
godsend. Atty. Jamey knows what he is doing. He is very intelligent and a master of his craft, professional, sincere and a straight shooter, excellent customer service/client centered skills, and most importantly for me, CARING and COMPASSIONATE! Every time I gave him a call in the office to clarify some things about my case, he would often answer the call if he's in the office or his partner Atty. Dylan would answer my phone call. They always gave me a call back the same day if both of them were unavailable. When I requested a face-to-face appointment in their office, Atty. Jamey and Atty. Dylan would always accommodate me the soonest time possible even with their busy court schedules. I'm just a pebble in the sand and I'm not a VIP, rich and affluent client but they sure made me feel like one! Atty. Jamey Dolowich fought hard for my case and my hopelessness turned into hope. All my chips were down and I was all in to face a nerve-racking and precarious jury trial come August 2017. Through God's amazing grace, using Atty. Jamey Dolowich and his partner Atty. Dylan Taylor as a tool to exonerate me, my case got DISMISSED in the furtherance of justice by the DA last June 2017. Answered prayers! I would forever be indebted to Atty. Jamey and Atty. Dylan for winning my case. I don't wish this to happen to anybody, but if ever you find yourself in trouble with the law like what happened to me, I highly recommend you get the services of Taylor and Dolowich! They exceeded my expectations and I'm sure they will exceed yours. Atty. Jamey will be ready to go to the mattresses with you to win your case and defend and uphold your God-given legal rights! Among the criminal defense lawyers in Monterey county, Atty. Jamey Dolowich is definitely Creme de la Creme!
Jamey Dolowich handled my criminal case against me and did an excellent job in my defense to the point where I no longer had to worry or stress about the future of my career. He is the best lawyer I have worked with, from professionalism, to attention to detail, to being personable and very reachable by phone and email. He clearly cares about his clients and does a superb job. He is very knowledgeable, and was very team oriented in his approach with working with another professional. I don't know anyone who works harder than him 7 days a week, available for questions and consultations, and gets back to you extremely quickly so you are not left hanging. He is really great at what he does and I highly recommend him.
So pleased with the outcome of my case thanks to Dylan and Jamie's expert experience and professionalism. I was arrested on a warrant from 2013 (first arrest in my life) and charged with three counts of felony for what I felt I was initially being over charged with for the little amount of evidence the police filing report explained on those felonies. Anywho, my case lasted about 3 months and I ended up taking a plea bargain of two misdemeanors, 3yrs probation and 30 days of community service and of course all those additional court fees. Rather that than 3 counts of felony on my record for a petty theft which lacked so much evidence to begin with but then again I decided not to fight due to the fact I work and live in SF and didn't have time or the patience to have this case linger on. Thank you Jamie and Dylan for taking care of business just as you promised and working with me on monthly financial payments for your excellent work. I recommend these two outstanding lawyers to anyone.
From the start, Jamey worked with me to accommodate some difficult scheduling/meeting issues, being flexible with his own time and my need to meet out of his office locale. Also, he took on more than I initially engaged him to do, and at no additional cost. His strategy meetings and preparation for my meeting with the DMV personnel was thorough and anticipated all of the questioning so that I was fully prepared and we were successful. He was realistic as to my case and made no false promises, but actually, the case turned out better than we could have hoped for. He was reassuring and related to me as a person, more than just a client and I was comfortable throughout the process, which has concluded with total success on all issues.
We contacted Atty. Jamey Dolowich to represent us in a marijuana possession citation. After friendly, informative and detailed consultation Mr. Dolowich accepted the case, did all the necessary research & homework, filings and court representation to a tee ! He constructed a defense, followed it through to the court and was awarded for us, a successful outcome, of which we were very pleased. His diligence showed that this case was important to him...a small case yes...but he handled it like it was his highest priority. Without hesitation we would contact Mr. Dolowich if we ever need ANY future legal services. We are just regular people folks... and I wanted to thank this man for helping us the way he did.
Jamey Dolowich is an excellent attorney he did so much for me and family . I will never forget what you did and all the time and effort you put into my case thank you so much...
Taylor and Dolowich are a great team!
Last year I had a sticky situation where I had a received a warrant for my arrest via mail. This was somewhat of an easy issue that I thought I could handle because a family member used my name for a ticket he received for possession.
I thought I could handle this because I was innocent; however I was wrong. The citing officer and his supervisor didn't want to hear my story, so I went to see Taylor and Dolowich for a consultation. They immediately made me comfortable and gave me peace of mind. Within minutes of signing my contract, Dolowich took my information and Taylor was typing up my information. These guys work fast! I met with them late Wednesday afternoon and they were still able to squeeze in a court date by Friday morning. The fact that these guys were former Public Defenders helped with them knowing exactly how court schedules and all the Judges work at the Salinas Courthouse.
They handled everything for me and I never missed a day of work. They worked around my scheduled and kept me in the loop of everything. They were able to speak to the original citing officer and forward charges to the guilty family member. Furthermore, they filed a "Factual Innocence" document with the court to erase this incident from my record (something I could never do if I represented myself). The factual innocence document was a really important thing for me because I plan to apply for a job that does background checks.
We were less than hopeful when my husband wrongfully arrested. We thought the situation was resolved dealing with it by ourselves, but over a year later a warrant was issued. My husband called Jamey and we hired him to defend him in court. After quite a few continuances all from the DA, Jamey got the case dismissed and gave us our lives back. We highly recommend him and will refer to anyone in need of a great lawyer.
Mr.Dolowich came to my rescue when I was in a less than hopeful legal situation. He worked diligently to gather the facts of my case and his hard, swift work led to my charges never being filed/dropped as well as released from incarceration the day after I was so smart as to hire him.
I have been a law abiding citizen of the United States of America. I have never been in trouble with the law until I was wrongfully accused and charged by the DA with a serious Misdemeanor last September 2016, thanks to my ex-wife! I was caught unawares. I already hired two criminal defense lawyers here in Salinas to handle my case and prove my innocence in court. I was bleeding financially because I was paying exorbitant attorney fees. Both of these criminal defense lawyers were telling me to take the fall and be accountable and take responsibility for my own actions. I was telling them I am innocent of the misdemeanor crime charged against me. I guess they already heard this statement "I am innocent" too many times with their clients in their years of legal practice. The second lawyer I hired told me bluntly, the actions I did were "Visceral" and "Not Virtuous" and that he cannot see a way out for me without getting a conviction. He was recommending for me to accept a plea bargain for a lesser crime like Battery or Simple Assault, nolo contendere, if ever it gets offered on the table by the DA. This was in February and early March 2017. The problem was my life, my liberty and my livelihood will go down the drain either way. I then decided to go another route and called the office of Atty. Dylan Taylor to get a third, mind you, third legal opinion. I spoke with Atty. Dylan over the phone and he immediately scheduled me for a face-to-face appointment in his office. The first question I asked was how much do I need to pay to get their legal services because I was in financial difficulties already. I was surprised how much affordable it was compared to the two previous lawyers I hired. I even joked to them that they need to review their business model because what they were charging was really a bargain compared to other lawyers in town. I digress. Atty. Taylor and Atty. Dolowich were godsend. Atty. Dylan talks the talk and walks the walk. He's the real deal. He did not promise me anything during our initial appointment, no lawyer would because they don't have a crystal ball, but I saw a glimmer of hope after that initial interaction. Atty. Dylan is very intelligent, master of his craft, professional and courteous, honest and sincere, calm and composed, has excellent customer/client service skills and most importantly for me CARING and COMPASSIONATE! I never felt these with my two previous defense lawyers. Every time I gave him a call in the office to clarify some pertinent questions about my case, Atty. Dylan would answer it if he's available otherwise he would return my call the same day and answer my queries. The same thing holds true with his partner Atty. Jamey Dolowich. When I requested an appointment in the office, they would readily accommodate me even with their busy schedules. When you are going through a serious criminal case, you want your lawyer
to be available for you as the client to update you about your case and in so doing partially allay your fears and anxiety to make it more bearable . In one of our appointments, I would never forget what Atty. Dylan told me when I asked him "What are my chances if I go to a jury trial?". He calmly replied, "You have a good shot and all is not lost." That's the only thing I wanted to hear and I told him and Atty. Jamey, as long as they do their utmost best, I can live with the outcome no matter what. The outcome far exceeded my expectations. Instead of facing a nerve-racking and precarious jury trial scheduled Aug 2017, my case got finally DISMISSED in the furtherance of justice by the DA last June 2017. Thanks be to God! Thanks to Atty. Dylan Taylor and his partner Atty. Dolowich. Among the criminal defense lawyers here in Monterey County, Atty. Dylan Taylor is definitely CREME DE LA CREME! If ever you get in trouble with the law, I highly recommend the law firm of Taylor and Dolowich! You won't regret it. They will be ready to go to the mattresses to defend YOU!

I didn't know what to expect from our legal system when my son got himself in trouble with a law. We didn't know a thing about what to do in our situation. We expected the worst scenario possible. Amazingly, somehow, we had a consultation with Dylan Taylor by chance.
And he has exceeded beyond our expectations!!
He is compassionate and professional. He guided us through step by step with his expertise in law. The outcome was incredible. I believe he is the best attorney you will find when you are in a need of help with your case.
Thank you Dylan.
One encounter can change our viewpoint forever. This is the impact Dylan had on my life. I was arrested for possession of a controlled substance with intent. I was no stranger to being arrested, incarceration, and prison. Through a series of bad choices I found myself once again headed to prison. I knew this because I had no money for a private attorney and would be appointed a Public Pretender. That is what I used to call the Public Defenders before meeting Dylan.
The first time I met Dylan he explained the offer that the DA was presenting and the reason for such a lengthy prison term.....my past. He asked me a series of questions all normal. I answered as honest as I knew how, truthfully. I'll never forget how he looked me in the eye in the midst of my despair and said, "Forget that.". He never settled for anything less than justice. This man believed in me, but more importantly he believes in the law and justice.
As a result of his thorough know of the law and his dedication to justice I was given a drug diversion program. Because of Dylan's dedication I was set on a path that today has saved my life, my family, and my sanity. Thanks Dylan.
I knew I was in the right office the moment I stepped in for a consult. I felt at ease discussing my case as he was fair and straight forward in regards to his thoughts and pricing. During trial, Dylan's confidence lifted mine. His pre-trial preparation payed off with a favorable outcome. I don't know how this stressful situation could have gone any better.
I have to say that they are the best. They move so quickly to get things done, and they get them done. Also they are so nice, and they take care of their clients. He helped me and a love one with a case, and we got the best possible outcome.
I would like to write this review on Dylan Taylor's behalf. I hired this man on a criminal case he was always kind and he always addressed any concerns about the case immediately, he was always available when I had an questions about the case, this man is also very organized an as professional as you can get. He definitely knows what he is doing in his profession, he is very attentive to your needs he will always make time for you about your case and best of all he will go the extra mile and do what it takes to get you the best outcome for your current situation, he will fight extra hard for you on your case. I will definitely recommend his service to anyone. If you are looking for a go getter top notch lawyer here he is. I believe he is the new big name in town...
Dylan Taylor is a real defense attorney. He is tough and very smart. I feel I am in the best hands that I can possibly be in. I am glad I borrowed the money to hire him.
I contacted Mr. Taylor with the uncertainty of a person who has never hired a defense attorney before. It was difficult times for me as well as for my family but from our introduction meeting, he made me feel I was going to be well represented.
He assessed my case and made every possible effort to set me up for success on the first hearing. He anticipated what could have been next, based on his great level of expertise on his field. I am positive that certainly made a difference on the long run.
I strongly recommend Mr. Taylor. He will go the extra mile to get any of his clients moving on the right direction. I am more than content with the outcome of my case and that is greatly due to Mr. Taylor's perseverance and knowledge of the laws. I can say that he met and exceeded my expectations and will look for his advise on future matters, no doubt about that.
I personally have had the privilege over the past years to have Dylan Taylor as my attorney for all of my cases. He was nothing but outstanding. If it weren't for his vigor and expertise, I wouldn't be here writing this review today. From my experiences I can honestly say Dylan Taylor will go the distance no matter how far for his clients. When he steps into court on your behalf he fights only for your best interests, and with his expertise of the law he comes prepared to handle every parameter of the case with intelligence and creativity. Dylan Taylor has earned my respect by his diligence and tenacity and I’m quite positive he will earn yours too, if you decide to hire him as your attorney. Beyond his professionalism in the court room you’ll notice Dylan Taylor displays much courtesy and compassion with family members and friends. If you’re in a circumstance as I was where you’re able to get to know Dylan Taylor you'll be glad you did. Dylan Taylor is well respected in the area and he is the first person I’d call if I found myself in any legal predicament.
