About Me, Charlie Dorothy
When you are faced with a legal problem or want representation involving a dispute, it is important to know who you are working with. I have created this website to introduce myself to my clients before they enter my office. I am Charlie Dorothy, and experienced business law and transactions attorney serving clients throughout the Sioux Falls, South Dakota region.
Who Says a Handshake is no Good Anymore?
While the days of making deals with a handshake may seem long gone, we live in a world where I believe the spirit of a handshake is necessary to any agreement. It represents two equal parties coming to a compromise. As an attorney, I seek resolution through negotiation and mutual agreement or mediation, not costly litigation or disputes.
My clients include business owners, individuals and families, developers, investors, lenders, and agricultural and farming companies interested in protecting their legal rights and investments. Over years of experience, I have learned that the best way to resolve disputes is amicably, resolutely, and with as little cost as possible. I have also learned that it is even better if you can prevent them in the first place. I am experienced in transactions and mediation involving:
I focus on helping my clients take appropriate steps to prevent future liability while having a clear understanding of their rights and obligations.
Offering Personable Service and a Comfortable, Casual Atmosphere
I want my clients to feel comfortable when they enter my office. I am very laid back and don't wear a business suit, unless I am going to court. It is not my intention to make my clients feel intimidated. My priority is to give you the counsel and knowledge you need to protect your rights and future interests. At every stage, you can trust that I will keep you informed of all developments, as well as your options for resolution.
An Army of one Focused on Your Needs
I'm an army of one. I handle all of the investigation and document processing myself so my costs can be lower. I have tried and true strategies in place, you can trust that nothing gets lost in the shuffle and everything gets done right—the first time.
After an extensive legal career, I decided to become a sole practitioner. I have worked as an attorney in larger firms and even managed larger firms. I was tired of the bureaucracy and personnel issues and felt that there was so much time spend managing employees and paper pushing, that I had less time to devote to my clients.
I want my relationship with you and your business to be a personal one. Working with a one man army, you won't be handed off to a junior associate or a legal secretary—you will work directly with me.
I am a lawyer who is always available to answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call my Sioux Falls, South Dakota office at 605-610-3496 or email me for more information.
