Criminal Defense

Best Criminal Defense Attorney Out There! (9.6.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have known Chris through my school years and he has always been a kind and caring person. Chris took on my case and didn’t waste any time to look over everything and come up with a plan of action. One thing that really stood out is that he was honest about all the possibility’s so I knew what to expect. He got my case to where I had no jail time and what I knew I had to plea guilty for the charge was so minute that it wouldn’t affect me getting a new job or the rest of my life! Would recommend to anyone!


Excellent choice for DUI defense! (9.4.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Christopher did a superb job in representing me. He went above and beyond, even representing me in unique aspects of my case after his representation of my case had concluded. I was facing almost 3 years of incarceration, due to two DUI and two drug possession charges. I sought help from Chris the night my charge happened. It was a Sunday night, I did not get ahold of Chris but I left him a message. Christopher was there at 6 am the next morning to represent me before a judge. We spent about a year and a half fighting my charges. During that time I cleaned myself up and got sober. Chris was able to get my plea deal reduced from over two years to eight months. I take responsibility for my actions and had begun serving my time in Louisiana as we had arranged with the Department of Corrections. A unique situation occurred and I must return to Arizona to finish my sentence. Chris represented and fought for me the whole time. He is an intelligent, diligent, and most notable very caring for his clients. If you want an excellent choice for an attorney look no further.”


Best Possible Outcome (8.23.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Christopher Doran was a phenomenal choice of a lawyer! While working through my case between Chris and his paralegal they were very hands on and Communicated great with every step of the system while going through court. I know without a matter of fact that things in my case would have not played in my favor as they did if I did not have the representation of such a great lawyer. All the work and time Chris put into my case has lead for to be offered and accepting a plea that could not be beat! When I complete my diversion program that Chris negotiated for it will lead to a complete dismissal of my entire case.

Through the work that was put in from Chris it has given me a second chance at life he has made it so I will not have felony charges on my record. I would recommend Christopher Doran to anyone I knew in need of legal representation or assistance. His price can’t be beat and you definitely get way more than you pay for from him and his team.

I will forever be grateful for his service and the outcome of my case!”

Thank you! (8.12.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Respectfully, Larry & Family

“Samantha knows the law. She took my case the same day and had my warrent squashed super fast. She worked with my down payment and monthly payments. She also took time and traveled to Yuma twice and her specifics on my particular case were legit and she got me the best plea I could have not asked for a better one. If you have a criminal legal issue Samantha DuMond is the best. Thank You DuMond & Doran!!!”

Always calm, fair, and reasonable (7.29.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Mr. Doran provided very beneficial advice when I was accused of some terrible allegations. His advice was relatively simple and specific which made it easy to follow. He always had a calm demeanor and was easy to speak with. I feel that helped keep me calm during the most concerning experience that I went through. Communication with him was prompt which is extremely
important with how slow the overall judicial process actually proceeds. His advice was a great value for the required retainer. Although the initial retainer was for one issue, it also covered a secondary related issue and saved me money in the long run. I am thankful my other attorney referred me to mr. Doran and his firm (DuMond and Doran).”

Highly Recommend Chris and his Team! (6.19.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I hired Chris to represent my son who had gotten himself in a bit a trouble. Chris went above and beyond with the University and Maricopa Co to resolve all issues and we were able to avoid any charges that would impact his record.”

Chris Doran is the Best Criminal Attorney (5.18.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“When we thought everything was bleak and no hope Chris came through for us. If you need a criminal attorney, he is your best bet. He worked with us on our payment plan and had our backs through the end. We were looking at 5 years and got 2.5 only after Chris spoke to judge. He did an amazing job at holding up the positives in our case. Highly recommend.”’

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (5.5.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris Doran represented me back in July 11th, 2018 for some criminal offenses that came to be false accusations and a great turn out for a better chance at life. First let me say that Chris is very professional at what he does for you as you individual lawyer. He provided me a portal with updates about my case, my upcoming court dates, and came to visit when he wanted to check up on me. I would ask other inmates at the time of being incarcerated how their lawyers would care for them or treat them and they did not tell me it was good most of their lawyers were late and treated them like they weren’t good people based on what they have done. People make mistakes and your lawyer should bring you up not down. How Chris had set everything up for me and I assure you that Chris goes beyond fighting this crazy judicial system. Sending messages to my spouse and letting her know everything is going to be okay every court date. Chris was always on time and he fought hard in court as in letting the judge know certain things were unfair compared to other circumstances lets just say he is an outstanding lawyer! Even after the case he has still kept in contact if I have any questions about certain things about the case. I’d definitely hire again if anything had happened and would recommend him to anyone as their criminal offense attorney. The Best in Arizona, it’s not about how much money you’re going to spend it’s the personality and quality of the work he has done. Thank you Chris Doran for representing me.”


Highly Recommend!!! (5.3.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris was excellent! I came in to see him and got things done that same day. If you are looking for a reliable attorney I would highly recommend Chris. I sat with him and had a discussion and while I was on my way home he had called me right back because he had already taken care of the case. The staff and the office are very welcoming and I was treated great as soon as I walked in the door.”


Case dismissed!! (5.1.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris is amazing. He was timely, he fought hard for my case and I would trust his team with anything. They are friendly AND professional and I know I am the needy client type. He is patient and he will explain things so you will understand what is going on and what steps he’s taking to make sure you re given the best chance in court.”


Thank you (3.17.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

A Fantastic Lawyer (2.28.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I was charged with a Public Urination ticket (nothing more) back in Memorial Day Weekend 2018 in Scottsdale, AZ in the Entertainment District. Venues did not allow anyone to enter to use the restroom even when trading driver’s licenses because they were at overcapacity. I did my research in finding out what would be the best way to handle this, and every website and local CA lawyer said it would best to try and fight it and not have it on your record. With my research, I found Chris Doran, who had great reviews, and reached out to his firm. From the get go, Chris made sure I knew what I was getting myself into and made sure that I would not be surprised by any outcome. This charge was frustrating, as I have never had a criminal charge before, and I consider myself a good citizen. I was told that this was a Class 1 Misdemeanor with up to 6 months in Jail and up to a $2500 penalty. Most of the time, no one goes to jail or pays more than a minimum charge, but each case is different. If you were publicly intoxicated and publicly urinated, then you might be going to jail. I was also told that a domestic violence charge is easier to remove off your record than it is to remove a public urination charge in Scottsdale… interesting. Anyways, I had this one charge with this major outcome, so I asked Chris what would be the best way to handle this. Chris, again, from the get go, told me that Scottsdale law and policy is so strict with this public urination charge, that unless you have some outstanding medical issue or extraordinary issue that would negate this charge, I, or anyone for that matter, could not try and reverse this. Had it been any other town in AZ, the outcome may have been easier to fight. He asked me to get as many character letters from personal and professional connections. I had 10+ character letters, and that didn’t help at all because the law and policy is already set against us. So I went above and beyond and wrote a 12 page proposal to Scottsdale City Council to efforts to combat this “major issue” Officer Attarpour told me about (the officer that gave me the ticket). Chris and his team (Jessica and Lucille, extremely considerate and responsive) generously presented my proposal to Scottsdale City Council town hall meeting. Even thought some publications and council members agreed on my proposal, my case couldn’t be dismissed because the law was already set. Even my prosecutor was impressed to the point that after I pled, the prosecutor and judge immediately set aside my conviction. I live in Los Angeles, CA so Chris and his team literally represented me the entire time while I was out of state. I don’t know how this will affect me in background checks, but I guess I will find out. A local CA police officer said “It’s a misdemeanor, not a felony, so you’ll me find. Just don’t get in trouble again.” Chris fought for me and this case for 6 months because he believed in what I wanted to do, even while managing my expectations. Thank you Jessica, Lucille, and Chris for helping me out. You all make an exceptional team, but that being said, I hope we never have to work together again (if that makes sense)! Ha! I would always recommend this firm, though, to anyone that experiences this in AZ and needs a legal team in AZ. Chris should be on the Supreme Court.”


Great Experience (1.24.19) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Extremely thorough and organized. He took care of all the heavy lifting and made this experience as painless as possible. Chris made sure all details were covered until the case was resolved. He provided realistic expectations and exceeded them. Would highly recommend and use again.”


Amazing (1.11.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“When I happened to have been caught up in the middle of a criminal traffic case I consulted with Chris and he made the possibilities very clear about my case and also made very clear what can be done if I were to hire an attorney. After talking to him for a bit I decided to definitely choose him for being so knowledgeable and friendly during our consultation. Not only did we beat my case but he ended up getting me what I had wanted out of my case. 100% recommend to anyone. Will always refer anyone I know to him and his law firm.”


Best Lawyer Ever (1.11.19) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“When my husband got taken away I thought it was the end of the world.. I thought I’d never see him again and if I did it would be years down the road.. thanks to Chris my husband come home in March and I couldn’t be more happier and thankful for a person.. I’ve never dealt with this type of thing so having someone there who actually cared and wanted to help felt really good.. 10/10 would recommend and if you haven’t found a lawyer yet.. this is your man right here.. thank you Chris and team for everything.”


Amazing Job (12.14.2018) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“When we first met Chris he was the only attorney to sit down with us and explain everything in detail! Chris also agreed to meet us in person on short notice and not over the phone like others! Chris’s price was very reasonable and we highly recommend him and his partners to anyone in need of service whether criminal or just regular questions!! I will be a lifetime client and will recommend his service to anyone!”


Client (11.30.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris Doran is efficient and did an awesome job helping me on my criminal cases. I had never faced criminal charges before, and I wasn’t sure where to turn. Chris and his team kept me informed during the whole process, and was always available to answer my questions. The end result of my criminal cases was better than I had ever hoped. I highly recommend Chris Doran!”


My Opinion Of Chris (11.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“What I loved about Chris is when I told him the complete truth when it came to my story; he didn’t judge me. He got my case dismissed, and quickly. I literally would not go anywhere else besides to him if I had another felony.”


Would Recommend (11.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I was being charged with Trespassing and Criminal Damage. After just a phone interview I knew he was who I wanted representing me.”


Not Your Typical Lawyer (9.29.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris is the real deal. The service, concern, compassion and fight he gives is incredible. He has worked very hard on our behalf and his legal knowledge is admirable. So glad he was on our side.”


Client (8.27.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris handled our sons case professionally and courteously. He was very helpful and informative, giving us all a peace of mind. I recommend Doran & Doran for any matter they can be of service with. Thanks so much Chris!”


I cannot put into words how grateful I am to DuMond & Doran (8.22.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I had an unfortunate experience with the police, and was lucky enough to have selected Chris Doran as my attorney. This was a terribly unnerving experience, and Chris and his paralegal Jessica Garner and receptionist and administrator Lucille Cottereau were so good at helping me understand the situation, explaining difficult options, reassuring me they were truly on my side—I knew they were using every resource possible to fight for me. We got the best outcome we could. I had a terrible result with my first DUI, but it was different this time because of Chris. I got a lower sentence this time, with a good result with work release and house arrest. I hope I never need to use them again, but I would not hesitate to contact their office again, and I cannot recommend higher any other attorney.”


CHARGES DISMISSED!! After 2 years of great hard work!!! (8.15.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris is absolutely amazing!! Unfortunately my family has had more than our share of legal battles and with that we have had several lawyers (private/public defenders) but Chris has surpassed them all! He was my mom’s defense attorney for her trial in 8/2016 – Chris has an authentic style in the court room, its hard to explain – HE’S ON TOP OF IT! Accurate! Aggressive! Knowledgeable! Wise! Yet he has a humble spirit, very understanding and sensitive. As as my mom went through the trial Chris was always present and patient with her and our family, taking his time to explain processes and just making himself available to us. But that’s not all!! When they lost trial my mom was sentenced to 6.5 years and she was released early on July 26th 2018 after serving almost 2 years!! It is absolutely amazing- Chris stuck by my mom and the family through the appeal process going out of his way to continue working hard on case, he found information that was not disclosed in trail and took initiative and GOT IT DONE! Because if his amazing work ethic, undying determination and just the awesome man he is, my mom is home today!! ALL CHARGES DISMISSED!! I can’t say enough good things about Chris!! He’s a man of great character!! We have found a friend in Chris!! THANK YOU CHRIS! GOD BLESS YOU!!!”


Awesome (08.07.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“From the moment I contacted Dumond & Duran my experience has been really good. I initially talked to Lucille and then Chris shortly afterward. I was charged with a domestic assault and I got a not guilty out of the deal. Chris remained composed throughout the whole trial yet he was very effective in how he handled it. My experience is nothing short of amazing. I would highly recommend Chris for any criminal defense matter.”


Not guilty on all counts (7.30.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Christopher Doran is a bulldog in court, very aggressive, and professional. I am beyond grateful having him by myside in court. He has changed my life and I would most certainly recommend him to anybody in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney.

His staff Jessica and Lucille were very helpful and easy to talk. Jessica was one click away and always easy to get ahold of. I owe her alot for making this process as easy as it gets so I would be able to keep my full-time job along with my full-time school schedule.

Thank you Chris and Jessica.”


Charge from 2011 (7.15.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I highly recommend Chris for any criminal defense you may have. He is very smart, responsive, compassionate, and always on the ball. He helped me get a charge from 2011 dismissed! I couldn’t be more grateful for him and his team. Jessica is awesome and very professional. I felt comfortable and confident with Chris and Jessica on my team, even the front office staff [Lucille] is amazing!”


Won’t find many better attorneys (7.14.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris Doran is a great attorney. Chris was thorough, experienced, caring, aggressive in the court room and very prepared. Easy to get in touch with and his staff were helpful and professional. I was facing up to fifteen years in prison and he was able to get my case dismissed. You would be hard pressed to find a better attorney than Chris. I would unquestionably refer Chris Doran to anyone.”


Thank you! (7.12.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Six and a half to fifteen years is what I was facing…after suffering the loss of both my parents within months of each other and struggling with the very real possibility of spending the next ten years (my presumptive sentence) away from my best friend, and twin brother, I had a constant sick to my stomach feeling and I desperately needed help. Chris Doran and the team at DuMond & Doran were life savers. Chris Doran’s confidence and knowledge of the law along with being aggressive and well prepared was reassuring. With Chris Doran you will get an attorney that is very capable, caring and someone who will fight with you and who will fight for you. Without hesitation I would refer Chris Doran and his law team to anyone who needs help. Thank you Chris Doran of DuMond & Doran law firm for giving me my life back!”


Highly Recommend! (7.3.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris Doran represented me and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the services I received. As Chris’s client, I was always well informed as he thoroughly explained everything, every step of the way. He is exceedingly efficient, dedicated, knowledgeable, and genuinely cared about my well being and the outcome of my case. He was noticeably responsive to all of my phone calls and emails whilst promptly addressing all of my questions and concerns throughout all hours of the day. Chris will go above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for his clients, I have learned this first hand.

I put all of my trust and faith into Chris’s hands and I am glad that I did because he saved my life. Chris embodies a heart of gold and successfully helped me attain my freedom, which is a tremendous gift. I am forever grateful for his services and beyond thankful that I found him. Overall, I had a very positive experience. I highly recommend Chris as a criminal Defense Attorney as he fervently cares about his client’s well being and future!

Additionally, the staff at DuMond & Doran Law Firm were courteous and welcoming. Upon every visit, I was offered a bottle of water, I felt appreciated. Their kindness and sincerity meant a lot to me while going through such a challenging time.”


GREAT ATTORNEY!!! (6.22.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

-John Cornfield

8 years dropped to 15 months! (5.16.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I hired Chris to represent my boyfriend in a armed robbery/aggravated assault. This was not his first felony conviction. The initial plea was 8 years. Thanks to Chris’s hard work he got this down to an attempted assault charge and a 15 month plea deal. He worked with me on a payment plan and was always willing to speak with me about the case. Thank you, Chris and his team for all the hard work.”


A Superb Defensive Lawyer (4.18.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris is a young defensive attorney, but don’t let his age fool you. This guy is sharp and really knows the law and will fight hard to defend you. He represented my son in a case that lasted over 3 years (due to the state prolonging it) and it finally went to trial at the end of last year. The entire time I was kept updated on the case every step of the way, from who was being interviewed and the contents of each interview, to court documents and proceedings. I was well informed and had any questions answered promptly. I also appreciated that His team worked with me on a payment plan.

During the trial he was amazing to watch in the courtroom. I could tell he worked diligently on the case and was well prepared each day of the trial, always a step ahead of the game knowing just what to say and how to respond. He really knows his stuff. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer. You will not be disappointed. If ever I need a lawyer again I would hire him. Needless to say I was very pleased with the results in the end. Thanks for everything you did Chris! Keep up the excellent work you do.”


Highly Recommend (4.6.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris Doran was hands down the best decision I have ever made. He stood up for me and believed in me when a lot of others didn’t. He fought diligently and was always straight with me. I feel I owe him a lot more. He never gave up and got me off multiple serious charges. He really did change my life. I would never hesitate to recommend his services to anyone in need. He wasn’t just my lawyer, he became my friend, a friend for life. Thank you Chris for everything you did for me and my family.”

5 Star Review (4.1.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I cannot say enough about DuMond & Doran, particularly Courtney Sullivan. We were treated with respect and professionalism by the entire staff and Courtney went the extra mile, showing compassion and commitment that was truly unexpected. The fact that they are very reasonably priced was an added bonus. I would not hesitate to recommend Courtney Sullivan and the DuMond & Doran Law Firm to anyone needing legal assistance.”

Fear turns to Acceptance (3.22.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran, esq. has been my lawyer twice for the same issue. I was fearful that I was going to be branished as a terrible person and loose my job. Neither ended up being the case. Chris is not only an effective attorney he is fair and if it shows that there is an issue he will be the first to tell you. He isn’t a lawyer for the idea of cotton candy and unicorns, but he will fight for you and explain to you things that you are facing if there is cause. I hope to never have to use an attorney again but if I ever do or anyone I know needs one, Chris will be the person that will be contacted.

Highly recommended (3.21.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris was very punctual and contacted me regularly to update me on my case. He was informative and knew exactly what he was going to do to help me, giving me detailed instructions at every step. I highly recommend Chris as your lawyer, you will not be disappointed. He got the verdict I wanted and am able to drive now because of his help. What really stood out was his willingness to make a connection with me and his overall kindness.

Excellent help (3.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Mr Doran explained everything very clearly and helped me sort out my particular mess. Hes very respectful and knowledgeable, and made me feel very at ease.

Good and Affordable DUI Lawyer (3.7.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I was arrested for misdemeanor DUI and was looking for a good lawyer to represent me. When I went looking around, I found that lawyers were charging way too much until I came across Chris Doran who offered to help me at a very reasonable price. I had never been arrested before, so was very anxious and had a lot of questions. Chris was very kind and patient in clarifying all my questions. Although my BAC was 0.14, Chris negotiated with the prosecutor and got me the lowest fines and just one day in jail. The prosecutor by mistake wrongly filed an additional charge – DUI drugs, although I had no trace of drugs in my blood. Chris and her paralegal Jessica fought hard for several months to get this charged not only dismissed but also sealed.
Chris did all this for a flat fee that was very reasonable. I would recommend Chris anytime to anyone. He takes great care of his clients.

Good Affordable Attorney in Phoenix metro area call him first (2.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I was looking for attorney I called around all the Law firm And picked Chris as my attorney He took on the case quick did not wast any time and start working on it right away I was very happy with the result of an outcome on hearing And saved a lot of money in the Process I’ll definitely be using this for my future needs.

Exceptional, Knowledgeable, Solid NOT a Blood Sucker 🙂 (1.11.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris reached out to me for my case which was a high profile case that made international news. This case was me vs. the State of Arizona DPS for police brutality for a speeding ticket.
Chris made everything as easy as possible and stood up for my situation which we had a plethora of evidence to prove I did not deserve to be charged with anything.
It was a very brutal battle with the State of AZ and they went out of their way to make it as hard as possible. Chris stood his ground, filed everything properly, articulately with factual points, and after 1.5 years (AZ’s fault not Chris’ for the time) we finally closed this issue with the charges being dismissed.

Chris is a wonderful human and the type of personality you wish a lawyer to have. In no way do the hollywood/gossip analogies of lawyers relate to Chris.

I’ve always preferred to represent myself however this case I didn’t have a choice and I doubt I could have gotten a better human to represent me.
Truly wonderful guy and I’d recommend him if anyone ever came into a legal situation including myself if I ever come across one again (hopefully not 😉 ).”

Slayer of Giants (1.3.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris is a diamond. His knowledge of the law and passion to defend exposes the many beautiful facets of his character and dedication in navigating your case through the system. Chris is valiant in his quest to win yet considers the client’s desires in the scope of strategy. I admire his presence and genuine heart. Quick to honestly respond and never mind what hour. It takes a certain kind of person to be honorable in navigating this “system of justice”! Lawyers buy time and Chris knew when time said deal now. That’s really valuable and based on trust.

That is just a brief script of why I call him Slayer of Giants and hope that others are fortunate enough to find one so valiantly passionate to defend.”

“Criminal charges against you are not to be taken lightly, whether innocent or guilty. I had a charge against me that had the potential of ruining my life and career. Chris was with my family every step of the way and readily available to answer questions. He is very knowledgeable, professional, companionate, and truly had my best interests in mind.”

Excellent work and overly satisfied results (11.21.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris was recommend to me by a close friend of mine, in August 2016. I contacted Chris immediately and I was Very impressed with how quickly he responded & got “me in for a consultation. After my first visit, I hired Chris. I was positive that Chris was the best person to represent my case he was very thorough when explaining my options and the different outcomes of each choice. I knew I could trust him and that he would do his very best to help me get the outcome I wanted. The day of my court date we sat down and discussed what will be happening, what I needed to say, and if I had anymore questions or concerns before we entered the court room. I received the outcome I wanted and was grateful to have him speak on my behalf. I hired Chris a second time on November 2017 to represent me again, I had not completed the requirements of my previous case, Chris again, won me the results I wanted. I will recommend Chris to anyone I know facing criminal charges, who want the best outcome for their case. I’m overly satisfied with the results, and I appreciate the time and effort he put into my case.”

Chris Doran was able to calm me down and give me the advice that best for my situation, he was clear and professional. I will definitely go back to him if I ever need legal advice again.”

AMAZING (9.11.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs an amazing lawyer. He is absolutely the best! I honestly cannot thank him enough for all of his hard work. He actually cares about his clients and is very trustworthy. During my trial, he was fierce just like he said he would be. He was professional. He paid attention to the details and every word that was said. He was really on top of things in the courtroom. He was very persistent. He did not give up. He put up a fight, in a very professional way of course. He made sure to get the truth out of people who were not being truthful. I definitely had confidence and trust in him throughout my trial. I am so grateful to Chris for the results I received. Like I said, I cannot thank him enough! If I could, I would rate him more than 5 stars! He is just great!”

Best attorney in AZ (8.18.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“This attorney went beyond my expectations, showing me the way a criminal defense lawyer is supposed to represent his client. To put it bluntly, being a twice convicted felon, I should be serving an 8-year sentence right now. Thanks to Chris, and his team of assistants, Im on intensive probation for approx. 6 months, then just standard for 3 years. There was also a 1-year jail sentence, in my plea deal that Mr. Doran, somehow, got defered. So as long as I keep my life structured, I’m not ever gonna see the inside of a jail cell again! Hands down, Chris is the best lawyer money can buy. The firm has with, him included are very personable and understanding. Naturally, an attorney of his caliber should cost a pretty penny. However, he’s very affordable and willing to work not only for you, but with you as well. I could go on and on about this man and the lucky firm that has him employed but I’ll just keep it simple. If you’re in need of representation, and you want the best in the valley……….Call Chris Doran. A very charismatic and detail oriented attorney. Thank you Chris for giving me my life back.

Excellent service in criminal law for serious cases that could potentially damage your future (7.26.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran Is an excellent lawyer in the courtroom but also takes time to get to know you and help understand the situation without any confusion. When I hired Chris I figured I was looking at serious charges and needed a good affordable lawyer and was fortunate enough to obtain and hire Chris and have been more than satisfied with the outcome of my case’s and would highly recommend him to anyone facing serious criminal charges.

Criminal defense handled flawlessly (7.18.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran has been an amazing lawyer in times that seem impossible to cope with. The sheer complexity of the case would have people running, but he handled it with grace and ferocity. He’s also the best-dressed lawyer I’ve seen 🙂
Chris and DuMond & Doran, PLLC will always have a special place in my heart.

Case Closed (7.11.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I had some trouble with a speeding ticket, and as soon as I explained the situation to Chris he had answers and reassured me that he would be able to handle my case so that I would hardly need to worry as I was simultaneously in the process of graduating, defending and submitting a thesis, and moving across the country. I have absolutely no regrets hiring Chris, he is professional, courteous, and an excellent attorney. He kept me updated about the status of my case, clearly explained the process, and helped get the result we had hoped for.

DUI Defense (6.27.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris was awesome to work with! He was quick to respond to any and every question I sent his way through the my case portal. He was very thorough when describing my situation and process I was going through. He was able to lower the charges against me as much as possible for my case, which was the ultimate reason I hired him. The process was one I wish to never go through again, but very happy I had Chris and his team by my side through the journey I was being faced with.

1st time DUI (5.30.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
First off, I interviewed several attorneys before selecting Chris Doran. I even met with the best attorneys in the valley. It came down to a decision between two attorneys, Chris being one. So, why did I choose him? He understood my goal and empathized with my situation. He did not make me feel like just another case. Chris makes you feel comfortable and explains every bit of the process from day one. He was always available when I needed him. I am in the process of applying to a Physician assistance program and carry a counseling license. He understood that with a charge on my records there were serious consequences for my future. He was able to get a reduced sentence for wreckless driving in Mesa court. I can’t thank him enough for doing exactly what I needed. Just because someone is new at the job doesn’t mean you need to be concerned about his abilities. This is someone who will do what you need on your case. He handles himself as if he has been doing this for years. He is my number one recommendation. Thank you Chris Doran!!

An Excellent Team of Defense Attorneys!! (5.19.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
After several initial consultations with different attorneys, I was given the DuMond & Doran, PLLC Firm Name. Their retainer was about 1/2 the price of other quotes. I immediately knew I was in good hands by their energetic, knowledgeable and aggressive team work on my case during the initial interview. I could have faced several years of incarceration. However, this team of pros went to work for me right away. My case was dismissed before it ever went to trial. I didn’t just have a lawyer, I had a whole team of attorneys on my side! My family & friends & I thank you Chris, Samantha, Jessica and the rest of your wonderful team. Our Justice System needs more like you. Forever grateful, Borg Winter & family

Forever Grateful (5.5.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
After months of disappointments and setbacks, it was my extreme good fortune to have found Chris Doran. He took the time to really listen and hear the details of my husband’s predicament. Unlike, others previously associated with the case. The level of understanding and concern was heartfelt and genuine. I knew I had found the right person to represent my husband. After meeting my husband, who was incarcerated still, I hired him. His fee was fair and reasonable. He immediately began working diligently towards the best possible outcome. My husband and I are forever grateful to Chris Doran as he ABSOLUTELY accomplished that very goal! While others were content with the possibility that my husband could face a up to a decade or more in prison, Chris Doran stood up and fought even harder. He resolved the case with a substantially more reasonable outcome. Thank you to Christopher Doran for your knowledge and professionalism, your caring and understand, tolerance and patience. I could not have done this without you!
Forever Grateful!

Best Lawyer this side of the Mississippi (5.4.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Handled the case with professionalism and did a job that exceeded expectations. Would refer Chris to anyone in need of a great lawyer.

Attorney Chris Doran and The DuMond & Doran, PLLC Firm (4.27.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Attorney Chris Doran consulted with me regarding 2 very serious charges that had a direct impact on my probation in which I became in violation of my probation. Attorney Doran and the staff at DuMond & Doran, PLLC Firm kept me calm and level headed. I was able to stay out of jail while Attorney Doran and the DuMond staff focused on getting my new charges handled. He also worked with my probation officer to allow me to self surrender instead of being arrested. Attorney Doran then worked with my public defender on my probation violation to work my release and probation reinstatement which was immediately resolved. He then was able to work to get my new charges handled without any jail time or fines. It was such a blessing considering I was looking at some serious jail time. I am now back on track with getting my life together and working hard with my new job and and doing what’s right in being a very productive good person. I can’t thank enough Attorney Doran and The DuMond & Doran, PLLC Firm for all the effort, work and communication they made in my behalf to give me one last chance to get my life together.

Excellent (4.13.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Mr. Doran is a genuine, honest, and aggressive attorney. He has been flexible with payments. I would highly recommend him as an attorney.

Chris did everything he could to help my case and was very resourceful helping me and assisting me with info that I needed and what to help him with as well and everything went even better then what I was asking for in court and the best team player in a court room. I thank him for everything and I definitely refer him to anyone who needs help and he knows what he’s doing! My number one choice, Chris Doran! Thanks again

Good Lawyer! (1.09.17) ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris did a good job for my daughter in her situation. He followed through until the sentencing and beyond. He was always available the same day to answer questions. He did his best to get her sentencing down to the minimum. He is a hard worker and very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone.

Straight to the point…(12.26.16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran was really cool… What got me was his calm demeanor… He got straight to the point… My first visit with him he had everything pertaining to my case… We provided character letters and other items… He helped my family and I out alot… For what its worth, I was looking at 5yrs with no credit time served and Chris Doran got me probation with credit time served… I’ll definitely be off probation in about a year… Thank you Chris… My family and I greatly appreciate you and your staff…”

Happy client good service! (12.19.16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Gave me hope and accomplished it. I’m so glad I hired Chris, he was very helpful and I would recommend. Thank you!

Excellent Representation! (11.22/16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I would recommend Chris Doran to anyone looking for an excellent lawyer for a DUI case. Chris was very knowledgeable and a hard working individual. I was out of town working for most of my case but Chris still made it work! He was awesome and catered as much as he could to my very difficult schedule. I was being charged with an extreme DUI that carried a maximum sentence but with Chris’ help we were able to get it plead down to regular DUI only serving less than 1/3 of the jail time and much much lower fines. His communication is excellent and always available and willing to answer any questions that might arise. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and can’t thank Chris enough for the hard work and effort he put into it!

Top notch and an even better guy!! (10.23.16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran is AWESOME! He was completely honest with me up front, he didn’t present false hope or expectations of something he’s not absolutely sure of. He was aggressive, honest, hard working and there’s no better quality in an attorney in town. Chris Listened to me and understood what i was looking to get out of the case, I spoke with other attorneys and none of them thought the way Chris did, He wanted to attack the case the way I wanted to and he did it with vigor. The case turned out even better then I had hoped and I couldn’t have been happier. I suggest speaking With Chris before you make a choice for your representation, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Chris Doran, where to begin? (10/20/16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
They only give a choice of 5 stars with 5 being excellent so I would have to rate Chris as 5 to the 3rd power or 5 cubed. Chris totally encompassed and surrounded the issue. He was able to review the facts from all angles and come up with a comprehensive and concise assessment of the situation in an astonishing amount of time. He saw in hours what others may have missed in months, The first thing you notice when you meet Chris are the qualities of courtesy, respect, intellect and a sense he is truly compelled to do the very best he can do for you as an individual. As every case is different, Chris’s ability to pay attention to even the smallest detail can bring out the truths in situations that would be missed by many. In my case I can honestly say that Chris was no less than a God send and a true miracle. One could write a book about Chris’s attributes, but suffice to say Chris’s combination of compassion, intellect and observation make him a truly worthy Allie and Champion in any cause that one might pursue.
Chris, thank you very very much.

Great Attorney (10.20.16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have hired Chris twice he has been amazing. Both cases he has had dismissed the man is good. Very professional and can keep you calm in a crazy situation. He answers any questions you have just an all around help. Definitely will recommend him and keep him as my lawyer.

Great Attorney ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran has been an awesome attorney from day one. He has handled my case so great and given me such peace of mind I could actually sleep at night again. I am so grateful for all his hard work and compassion. His fees are reasonable and he more than earns every penny. I highly recommend him to all my friends now.

Let the church say Amen ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I first heard of DuMond & Doran, PLLC in December 2015 for a case(s) that technically I had been fighting for a whole year already but wasn’t going good, so I was referred by Quick Bail. I was then assigned to Chris Doran as my paid attorney. My 1st impression was I hope he’s good…lol…but after working with him about my case over the last year, by no fault of his rest assure my case was seen in my favor with probation. To some that may mean nothing, but I have 3 little girls whom I cherish with the air I breathe and to have my freedom continued because of Mr. Doran’s hard working actions is ****PRICELESS****. Thank you kindly Sir.

Chris Doran is a GREAT criminal defense attorney ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I was indicted in 2015 for an F2 & F3 and I hired DuMond & Doran, PLLC for my representation. From the beginning Chris was there for me & was very compassionate & understanding throughout the entire case. My case finally was settled this year in September 2016. Chris went above and beyond what most lawyers would and he absolutely got me the best outcome without having to go to trial. I was very pleased with his representation & Chris even offered to be available during my probation term should I have questions. My charges went from an F2 & F3 down to an M1 with probation! He is just amazing & I would definitely have him represent me again & am recommending him to friends and family if needed.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris is amazing lawyer. He did his jobs like he said he would do. He gave a young girl a second chance to change her life and a new freedom which was easy taken away and I’m thankful for that.
-Sang Le

Very satisfied with representation from Chris Doran!!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Throughout my lengthy case Chris was compassionate, honest and most of all very professional. He payed special attention to the specifics in my case which helped in winning at trial. He knows the law and enforced it in the court room. I was thoroughly impressed with his abilities in research and obtaining all the background information needed prior to our court date as my case was not common. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a lawyer. Thank you Chris and DuMond & Doran, PLLC for an excellent experience even though it started as a scary journey you managed to relive a lot of anxiety throughout the process.

Chris Doran is Aces ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My experience with Chris Doran, Samantha DuMond and this law firm was such a blessing. I was arrested last year for “Physical Control” of a vehicle.
For those of you who don’t know, this means the state can try to charge you with a DUI even if you were not pulled over by the police. In my case, I had two prior felony Aggravated DUI’s (aggravated because my Driver’s license was suspended and I never hurt anyone). Those DUI’s were 16 years old, but in AZ. there is not a statute of limitations and they can treat your past DUI’s from almost 20 years old as if you committed them yesterday. I did 3 years in prison for my 2nd DUI and Chris Doran got me 3 months in jail!!! I worked with Samantha (who is as sharp as a whip herself) for the first two months and then with Chris for almost a year fighting my case. He worked just as hard or even more diligently than if I had paid a ton of money for a different attorney. Chris Doran explained to me that “people should NOT be judged on the fact that they are not as financially capable as others and that we all deserve to be represented to the fullest capacity and without prejudice.” You can’t get better representation for as low as the price you get at DuMond & Doran, PLLC. I can’t even begin to describe in words the amount of fear, pain, and stress I was under during my case.

Chris as well as his staff were so supportive and reassuring every time I emailed or called the office in tears. Chris Doran made miracles happen for me. Even though, I wasn’t caught driving and I had a strong case, because of my past I was too afraid to take it to trial. Again, in the beginning, the prosecution was offering 8-10 years in prison and in the end, Chris Doran got me 3 months in jail! Until you meet Chris Doran, you will find out just how much you are in good hands see he how “gets down to the brass tacks” meaning he doesn’t leave one stoned uncovered and will work to the grind to have you the finest deal while not charging tens of thousands of dollars. He is sharp, refined and has a gentle way that helps even make the opponents like the prosecutors find him likable and willing to make a better deal. An attorney with Chris Doran’s dedication, compassion, energy and demeanor is who you want to represent you.

A great lawyer that cares ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris did all he could to help my relative with his case. We hired Chris after the first attorney did nothing. Chris picked up the ball and ran with it. Instead of judging the case personally and trying to convince my relative to take a plea deal right away, Chris really researched other cases for this case, to give a great argument to the prosecutor for consideration of a more favorable plea deal, which we received. Not only were his arguments sound on paper, but in the court room he was a polished speaker in front of the judge as well.

I feel Chris did all he could do considering the circumstances, and my relative is so much better off because Chris cared, and fought for him. Chris met with my relative and the family, and was able to convey many of our thoughts and feelings to the prosecutor and the judge at sentencing. I don’t know how much it helped in the end, but it helped show my family how much he listened to us and cared about us and what we were all going through. I highly recommend Chris to any first time offenders that need someone that will fight for them. He did a great job throughout the entire ordeal.

Fair and Fighting ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Christopher Doran is an outstanding lawyer! When I needed someone to fight for me he is someone counted on right from the start. When we first talked to the end, he never stopped caring on how I was or doing. He always got the facts before presenting them and at times postponed the hearing just to let the prosecutor read over the notes to give me a fair trial. Even when we did not get the first plan of action we still got something we both liked.

Christopher always answered and responded to the case as I was his only client when I know he had others. The man right here is one that I will go back to if need be. As a first lawyer of mine he explained how the court system worked, never thought i had a dumb question or pushed them off. He is a very respectful person and lawyer. I would recommend him to others who need any kind of help. Thank you Christopher for getting me through this!

Above and beyond. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have been wrongly accused of a crime. From day one my attorney has provided services that are above and beyond what law firms and attorney’s are known to do. I have shared my experience with others and they to will agree my experience with Mr. Doran is unlike no other. There is never a point where I am in doubt or have questions. Mr. Doran and his law firm are very professional, kind and understanding. Living 100 + miles from my attorney has not been an issue, Mr. Doran stays in communication with me throughout this entirely frightening situation. I would recommend Mr. Doran to any person that is dealing with a criminal case.

Thanks Chris ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris was very professional and showed up on time ready to work. I was very pleased with his aggressiveness and knowledge of the law! Not to mention his unwillingness to settle for jail time, he worked super had to get me probation and his closing remarks I think helped influence the judge to give me less time on probation! I think if we would’ve actually went to trial we would have been victorious, sometimes I wish I would’ve been brave enough! I would definitely recommend Chris of your looking for a hardworking attorney.

Samantha is a great attorney. She got my charge completely dismissed with only community service. She kept me informed better than lawyers I have experienced in the past. She is professional and skilled at what she does. Her law clerk, Chris, is exceptional as well. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and very thorough. Together they make a great team and really fight for their clients. I have recommended DuMond & Doran, PLLC to acquaintances and they have given me nothing but positive feedback as well. I would highly recommend DuMond & Doran, PLLC to anyone for criminal defense work.

Samantha and Chris are amazing. They worked very diligently on my case ensuring the best possible outcome. My future was on the line when I first contacted DuMond & Doran, PLLC. They went above and beyond to defend me and provided me with unmatched service levels. I am forever grateful for everything Chris and Samantha have done for me and my family. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a dedicated team to help protect their future.

Samantha and Chris are absolutely amazing! They were able to help me navigate through a difficult disciplinary process involving charges that could have ended my career. Not only were they quickly able to assess how best to proceed but they helped me develop a proactive plan that ended up working to keep my case out of court. Throughout the entire process and beyond they were extremely supportive and continue to check in with me today to make sure I know they are available if I ever need help again! I would highly recommend them for help with any disciplinary process.

Da Best!!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris is the Best!

I find Chris to be down to earth. Listens well. Not at all like other attorneys that sound like “used car salesmen”.

From the first time I spoke with Chris, I felt confident. I didn’t feel like I was getting any “BS”. He quickly got to the root of my problems and had suggestions right away. Things I could understand.

It turns out I had other legal issues come up. He was able to solve them in one day. Chris is smooth. In his demeanor, being down to earth He is able to get to the solution quickly.

I am very pleased with the outcome. Having Chris on my side has given me much relief. I have already referred Chris to friends. I would not hesitate to refer Chris to anybody I know.

Working with Chris is like having a “friend” in the business.


Outstanding attorney!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I have never needed a lawyer, however Samantha made the process very comfortable. She immediately established a level of trust, I had not anticipated. She expertly handled my case in a successful fashion, keeping me updated regarding every detail along the way. She was very responsive, to any question I had, responding in an expedient fashion. The cost of the entire process was far less expensive then I could have imagined.

Best attorney that has ever represented me ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Mr. Doran is an outstanding attorney who’s relentless pursuit to uphold my rights as a citizen is unmatched in my experience. His attention to detail in reviewing the facts of the case are only overshadowed by his willingness to achieve the most fair outcome within the written law. Highly recommend.

Thanks!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris did an awesome job with my case! stayed in contact with me at all times and answered every additional question I had. Case went exactly as planned with no hiccups.

Great accident lawyer (2.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
My name is Cameron and i came to Dumond law becuase i had heard they were great attorneys. The insurance company that was responsible for the accident offered me 7000 dollars total for injuries and loss of work. I wanted to be sure the quote was a fair deal. Chris told me that he would check into it and he believed that I deserved more. Dumond law got me a total of 45000 in cash and take away of 25000 dollars. I was so happy that I chose Dumond law to be my accident attorney! Thanks Dumond law!

Great Attorney (12.19.16) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris Doran was a great attorney, he was a great communicator from start to finish through this stressful event. Doran was able to follow through and made sure he covered all his bases on our behalf. We were from out of town and not family with the Arizona court system, due to a traffic accident that occurred in the town of Phoenix. I was wrongfully accused of being a driver in that accident and Doran kept his professionalism and very cooperative with our needs. Mr Doran is highly recommended to anyone out there who is in need of a good defensive attorney.


Hard working and well prepared – Couldn’t be happier (7.29.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Ms. Anderson provided assistance on an extremely important court hearing. She was given relatively short notice to prepare for the hearing, and she worked through a large amount of material in that short amount of time. I was impressed with how well she was prepared for the hearing, which made me less worried. Although I only worked with Ms. Anderson briefly, I am thankful for her hard work. I couldn’t be happier with the results.”

Business Acquisition Assistance (3.20.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Courtney was a great lawyer to work with. She made the process of creating paperwork for the purchase of a small business easy. I was able to communicate with her through email during the entire process. This allowed for the paperwork to get started in a timely manner and made it easy to review the documents as they were created. Once everything was in place she emailed me the final copies for review to make sure everything was correct before coming in for signing. When everything was completed I made one quick trip into the office to sign the final documents and get my copies. I would happily use Courtney as my attorney again and would recommend her to anyone who is the need for representation.”

Used car sales (10.22.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I recently purchased an electric car from [a used car dealership] in Phoenix and in Tempe. Upon driving the car home and installing a 500.00 charging circuit for it I soon discovered that the car would not charge. I couldn’t go 40 miles on a charge. I purchased it Friday night, charged it all day Sunday and was stranded on Monday. When I called the dealership about returning the car I was told… To bad, you should have done your research. This is where Chris Doran comes in. Upon contacting him, he immediately took action. The moment he read the sales contract he pointed out several flaws in it and assured me I had nothing to worry about. His swift and precise attention to details and his knowledge of law was amazing and so reassuring. He did exactly what he said he would and got me a 100 percent refund and got the entire contract voided. No restocking fees, no mileage fees, just sweet justice. He was extremely confident and professional. I would trust him with any legal needs I may ever have.”

Call Chris if you’ve been injured in an auto accident (8.18.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I was in a car accident where the other driver was at fault. I was in pain for a whole month. Chris represented me when seeking reimbursement for medical expenses from the driver’s car insurance. I was impressed with how he explained what to expect from the insurance company and how long it might take to settle. Chris set up an account for me in MyCase to upload medical bills and to review other legal documents. This was so convenient! It also saved me pain because I didn’t need to drive as it hurt to sit down. Chris made me feel like an important client because he provided me regular updates via phone call or text message. I was very happy when the reimbursement arrived. Chris negotiated a settlement that was much higher than what the insurance company had originally offered. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who has been injured in an auto accident.”

Amazing Service (6.10.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Is helping me with what might be a little bit of an on going situation and if need be I will be hireing him as soon as need be. He is and amazing lawyer and I am glad I got in contact with him.

Knowledgable and honest attorney ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Recently I had some legal issues arise, and needed consultation/assistance. Chris proved to be very knowledgable on all aspects surrounding my case. He gave honest opinions/advice; never misguiding me or giving me false allusions of outcomes. I found Chris to be very personable and passionate about his work, and for this reason I retained him. Thank you again Chris.

Christopher Doran was effective, professional and knowledgeable in handling my case. He was always available to answer my questions and explain the process to me. He had my case resolved in a timely and very satisfactory manner. I have recommended Christopher Doran to friends and family!

Setting the Standard for Excellence (07.03.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Shelby truly cares about me, and most importantly, my children. I chose her for her compassion and stellar reputation as a young attorney. I was enduring a heart wrenching life experience when I needed assistance filing an Order of Protection (OOP) against my ex husband in the middle of going through the process of modifying our parenting plan. I needed someone I could trust that would consider me and my children; our circumstances, our safety, and our feelings. That was Shelby! When the OOP was contested by my ex-husband, Shelby was well beyond prepared. Her talent to see the intimate details as well as the whole picture of the proceedings impressed me as she continuously displayed thorough and well-prepared arguments defending my interests. This ultimately led to the Court’s decision to keep the OOP in place. I will forever be grateful for how she strongly advocated for me which proved to be critical to the endurance of the Court’s decision. I would highly recommend Shelby for any family law matter.”

Best Attorney and Council I Could Ask For!!! (6.13.2019) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I am honored to write this review for what I will attest to be the greatest criminal and family attorney in Arizona. Chris took on a huge responsibility and deliver the greatest performance I could have ever expected, my son!!! During a troubled time in my life Chris demonstrated poise and professionalism guiding me through a tough time regaining the custody of my son. Chris and his team Shelby, and Jessica kept me informed and assisted me during several tough times in which not only I needed great counsel but an open ear to think clearly on the steps to follow. My journey throughout this process seem an eternity but Chris made it so I kept on gaining ground every step of the way allowing me to spend more time with my son and feeling like the end was rather near. I had Chris represent me on both a family matter and criminal matter and his knowledge and professionalism showed on both cases to be superb. I am pleased and once again, honored to recommend anyone in need of a great attorney at an affordable cost to visit Chris and his team to experience the same results and outcome as I did. Thank you Chris for getting my son back and for being a great advocate in the most needed time in my life.”

Champion (5.24.19) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“We could not have gotten thru an extremely lengthy, tiring & hostile custody battle without Shelby’s guidance, patience, diligence, knowledge & class. She not only championed for us but most importantly, championed for the best interests of our son. We would hands-down recommend her to anyone in need of a family court attorney.”

Best Experience (6.27.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“I was referred to Mr. Doran regarding my child support case and was advised about his knowledge and kindness. It was such a great experience and, due to the nature of my case, a very stressful time for me, Mr. Doran was very kind and he took his time to go over my case and documentation to be completed. I know I am in good hands.”

Professional and a pleasure to work with (8.24.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Throughout my divorce, it was hard in more ways than one for me and Chris made sure I was being protected and my voice was heard. Is a pleasure to work with and would work with again (hopefully not too soon).”

Awesome lawyer! (4.6.17) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Chris was great! He took time to understand every little detail about our case and showed that he truly cared about our situation. Our court hearing was canceled however we know he would have done an amazing job for us if we had appeared in front of the judge.

My experience with Chris Doran and associates at DuMond & Doran, PLLC ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I hired Chris Doran to take on my case after being referred by a friend, and I’m so glad I did! Chris is an amazing lawyer who puts a lot of passion into his clients and in his work, I would highly recommend him to anyone! Him and his staff are very prompt, on replies and getting deadlines met and when it comes to the courtroom, he’s ethical, detailed, and direct with points. It is comforting to know someone has my best intentions in mind.

Great representation ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Recently, Mr. Doran represented me during my case regarding custody/parenting time with my child. I appreciated how he showed an incredible degree of integrity and maturity throughout his interaction with during my custody case. I also liked how he also displayed world-class representation by speedily responding to my emails and keeping solid contact with me (via phone also) at all times- impressively displaying his knowledge of the legal system over and over again.

I feel that communication is something some law practitioners really do overlook when it comes to taking on the responsibility of representing another fellow citizen in a court of law. Christopher was very punctual to every meeting as well which made me very grateful for his services overall. I would say that I highly recommend him.

Hi Samantha,
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you so much! I don’t think I’ve ever told you how much I appreciate all that your law firm has done for my family and I. Ever since day one you’ve been there for us. Thank you so so much! My family and I are completely satisfied with everything you’ve done for us! And especially my daughter! What you did for her was the icing on the cake. Her being able to stay at home with my wife and my son make every day tolerable for me. You’re awesome Sam! Thanks again!

Chris not only helped put our minds at ease with our legal issues, but was there for us at the drop of a hat when we needed him!

Chris will be our lawyer on call for as long as we need one. I would highly recommend him.

Chris is amazing ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I hired Chris for a last minute case and he took me on, reviewed my file, and came to court very prepared and really gave opposing counsel a run for their money. His questions were very well thought out and shaped my whole case for the best. I would definitely recommend Chris and his no bull attitude. He also doesn’t waste your time and money. I will be coming to him for any/all of my family law needs!

Very Knowledgeable ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I can’t thank attorney Doran enough for all the hard work and hours he put into our case. Attorney Doran is very knowledgeable with the law, and in his field, don’t let his age or kind face fool you. I was very surprised with his aggressiveness and how he fought for our rights. Attorney Doran treated us like family, and went beyond what we ever expected from our attorney, he truly cares for his clients, not just tells you so. I would, and will recommend him to anyone, including my own family. I can’t thank him enough for all that he has done for us. Forever grateful.

Bond Forfeitures

Most Reliable and Prompt Attorney (9.21.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“As a bail bond agency owner, I have been using Christopher Doran for years. He is extremely hard working, and treats all of his clients with the care and urgency needed with his line of work. Christopher Doran has filed numerous court motions for my company, has represented me for court appearances, and has won many arguments. He is a great attorney, and his success really shows it.”

Best business lawyer we’ve had! (7.24.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“My company has now used Samantha Dumond as a lawyer for our Bail Bond Company for the last 1.5 years. We made the switch from another lawyer because that one just seemed to go thru the paces and never really tried new or aggressive arguments to try and benefit us. When we switched, Mrs Dumond was everything we’d hoped for. Not only did she find new and creative ways to bring existing case law into play on our various cases but she successfully argued many new types of situations and how they could closely correlate or just show enough prejudice that we were saved tens of thousands of dollars. I highly recommend her for any Bail Bond Company looking for the best lawyer in our niche! Even though I wish I could afford to just hire her for us, instead!”

Outstanding in Bond Forfeiture Court (4.4.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Samantha Dumond handles all of my bond forfeiture court appearances. I am a Bail bond agency owner and have been using her services for years. She has argued over 100 cases for my company. On numerous occasions, she has went above and beyond with her arguments to obtain end results in my favor. These can sometimes be very difficult arguments, however, Samantha Dumond never fails to impress me with her success rate. I will continue using her for all of my legal needs as she is very experienced in bond forfeitures, and civil law as I often use her expertise for both!

Our Son’s Lawyer (10.22.18) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Chris was an excellent lawyer. He represented our son who got himself in trouble with the law. He was facing felony charges and with Chris’s help the were dropped to the lowest possible misdemeanor. He answered all our questions promptly and professionally. We opted for the one total fee plan. I did not think that he or his staff would be as responsive, as if we paid by the hour. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Im pretty sure that he responded to all my call in just a few minutes, except for one time when he was in court with another client. I highly recommend Chris. I would definitely hire him again, but I am hoping that I don’t ever have too.”

“Chris and his staff provided excellent service, demonstrating professionalism and personal attention to all details of my brother’s case (Petition for Early Probation Termination). I hired Chris last year for my brother’s case. My brother and I live in Las Vegas and the case was in Arizona. Chris and I communicated through emails and telephone calls and, he was always available when I needed to talk to him. He made this very easy for us and really was on top of the case. He conducted himself in an utmost professional manner and clearly explained the steps in the process. He reached a successful outcome for my brother. We really enjoyed working with Chris and highly recommend him.”

“Chris Doran is the most compassionate, intelligent and determined man I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I was given the run around for months at my workplace for a discrepancy in pay.

He was there to advocate for justice when no one else would. I would trust him with any legal case I might have in the future, and I highly recommend his services to anyone.”
