At Dolman Law Group, we pride ourselves on helping injured victims of accidents or negligence in the Pinellas and Tampa areas. We have a team of dedicated and award winning attorneys who each specialize in a specific area of personal injury law in order to best help our clients.
Dolman Law Group routinely represents Tarpon Springs injury victims on claims relating to auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, traumatic brain injuries, wrongful deaths, insurance bad-faith claims, trucking accidents, and many other personal injuries.
We strive to make sure that we have the time for each client, determined to make a personal connection while fighting for them with all our resources and capabilities. We do not take new clients lightly. We advocate for each one until they are satisfied with the outcome.

The first and foremost thing that makes our firm different is our goal to make sure that each client can reach their attorney. We give each one the personal cell phone number of their attorney. We know how important this is. It is common for injury victims to retain us after they have grown dissatisfied with their previous attorney; we soon find out that the client had difficulty getting a hold of their former lawyer on the phone. Instead, they were directed to a legal assistant who was not familiar with the particulars of their case. At Dolman Law Group, our attorneys are committed to providing accessible and personal service. While we do employ a staff of experienced professionals to help with important day-to-day tasks, we do not forget that you are paying for the services of an actual attorney.
While paralegals and legal clerks are an important part of our firm, an experienced attorney specifically handles all claims. As a client of Dolman Law, you will often interact with our friendly staff. However, an attorney will be making all the decisions concerning the planning, strategy composition, and handling of your case.
Dolman Law Group only represents private citizens like yourself. We have never, and will never, represent an insurance company or their interests.
We preserve a proactive and energetic litigation practice throughout Florida. From this, insurance companies are well aware of our reputation for not giving in to pressure or scare tactics. Many law firms claim to be “aggressive” or “tenacious” in their advertisements. In reality, they are high-volume, low-recovery practices—often known as settlement mills. Many consumers make the mistake of selecting a personal injury attorney based solely on advertising. They assume that a big budget equals big settlements. In actuality, it is usually the opposite. Attorneys who represent a large volume of clients can afford to settle each case for less. In this way, they make their money by using a “quantity over quality” strategy.
Additionally, some attorneys use catchy TV referral services to obtain clients. We do not. In fact, we strongly discourage clients, and non-clients alike, from contacting companies like 411-PAIN and Ask Gary. They demand a monthly fee from each attorney in exchange for assigning them a random client. Neither expertise nor the particular needs of that client are taken into account.
Having the threat of filing a lawsuit combined with the willingness to back it up, is an important tool for personal injury attorneys. If an insurance carrier is being unreasonable in their offer, we will not hesitate to go through with filing a lawsuit. If necessary, we have the resources and experience to advance your case towards trial. Not every case should be tried in a courtroom, but at times, that is what it takes. Throughout this process, it is our goal to keep you well-informed concerning all the details of your case. That way, we can make an intelligent decision together as to the fitting course of action and fair settlement value of your claim.
At Dolman Law, we limit our practice to personal injury claims only. By limiting the area we serve to serious injury claims, we can assure our clients that our resources are directed specifically at combatting the insurance companies. It remains our goal to match the insurance carriers dollar-for-dollar in retaining the best experts and investigators. By devoting the proper resources to each case, we can maximize the value of your claim.
It remains our belief that someone can only be wholly competent in one single area of the law. This is my opinion; and I’m sure many will disagree. However, the practice of personal injury law is always changing, as are the defense tactics employed by the insurance carriers. In order to stay relevant and effective, we prefer to devote all our time and energy to one cause.
At Dolman Law Group we work hard to provide our clients with all the information they need to feel comfortable about the process and to make an informed decision. In this effort, we create and post content daily to our blog, providing information on legal issues, injury terminology, accident procedures, and what to expect.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries – Selecting the best Tarpon Springs motorcycle accident attorney is a difficult task. At all hours of the day there is a large list of lawyers advertising on television, radio, and billboards. Do not pick an attorney based on how they look standing next to a motorcycle on a billboard. Obviously, their ability to rent a motorcycle for the photoshoot does not make them a competent motorcycle accident attorney.
