Attorney Amy Dohrendorf
For as long as she can remember, Amy Dohrendorf has wanted to be an attorney. During her childhood, she constantly engaged her parents in spirited debates over anything from current events to her curfew and why she shouldn't be forced to eat fish for dinner. As a graduation present, her father gave her a framed newspaper clipping that read, "It wasn't anything you did or didn't do as parents. I was born to be a lawyer." What was it that motivated Amy to practice in the field of family law? She actually has her own personal experiences with the subject.View Profile
Attorney Melissa Kleminski Bower
If you were to call Melissa "wonder woman," you wouldn't be far off the mark. She worked full time while attending the University of Denver Law School at night. This included a variety of jobs from front desk clerk at a hotel to legal assistant at a law firm to admissions assistant at her school. She also held externships and participated as a volunteer in legal programs at the same time.View Profile
Attorney Dianne Sullivan
A graduate of Arizona State University College of Law, Dianne earned her Bachelor’s degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences from Seton Hall University, where she graduated cum laude with a minor in Criminal Justice. She was a member of the Women’s Law Forum and participated in a pro bono legal project with the Essex County Public Defender’s Office that gave her the opportunity to assist in indigent criminal defense cases.View Profile
Attorney Robert C. Howard, Jr.
Attorneys aren’t always the brunt of the joke. Sometimes they’re the ones making the jokes. Case in point is attorney and stand-up comedian Robert C. Howard, Jr. (he goes by "Bob"), who won the Funniest Person in the Valley contest in 2001 and opened for Wanda Sykes at the Tempe Improv. In 2013, he won the John O’Connor Humor Competition sponsored by the Phoenix 100 Rotary Club. Through 2014, he wrote “Finding the Funny” – a monthly column for the Fountain Hills Times. But Bob isn’t all about laughs. In 2008, the State Bar of Arizona named him one of the top 50 pro bono attorneys in the state. In 2011, he was inducted into the Scottsdale Historymakers Hall of Fame by the Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce.View Profile
Attorney Carrie Cravatta
Carrie grew up in a small town in Illinois, but gravitated towards the “big city” after high school for college and law school. That college was North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and Management. Carrie went on to receive her J.D. degree from The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois. Since then, she has become licensed in two states – Illinois and Arizona. She has distinguished herself as a speaker as well, presenting in several seminars and fairs.View Profile
Attorney Kareen O’Brien
If you were to ask her, Kareen would say her favorite part about her job as an attorney is being inside a courtroom. The courtroom is her second home and it’s where her clients say she is at her best.View Profile
Before becoming a divorce attorney, Kareen was a major crimes prosecutor, first in Los Angeles, then in Phoenix. Much of her career as a prosecutor was spent handling serious domestic violence crimes. She’s heard and seen it all and knows how to separate fact from fiction. Kareen once prosecuted a fraud case where Christopher Darden of the O.J. Simpson trial was defense counsel – and she won!
Attorney Jennifer Mihalovich
Jennifer is known as someone who is “reliable as the sunrise.” She has spent 16 years working on child support matters with specialized expertise in interstate cases. Her caseload as Assistant Attorney General was huge with over 350 active cases and over 100 hearings a month!View Profile
When she was sworn in at the United States Supreme Court, Jennifer met Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Samuel Alito, and Elena Kagen. Those “celebrity sightings” were more distinguished than the time she met Patrick Swayze, Kevin Costner, and Don Johnson while gambling in Las Vegas. But the latter three were a bit more fun than the Justices.
Attorney Fred Ruotolo
Attorney Colin Bell
Outgoing, funny, and always happy to lend a hand, Colin comes to us from western Canada and practices criminal law.
