Staff Profile: Dennis Dobos, Esq.

Back

The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland is proud to count among its staff Dennis Dobos, a respected and highly   successful attorney in the Consumer Law Practice Group. For fifteen years, Mr. Dobos has represented underprivileged and vulnerable clients in situations ranging from foreclosures and landlord-tenant disputes, to unfair business practices involving breaches of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, and violations of the consumer protection statutes. Dennis notes that “law school was a way I could learn to be of service to others – this is what life is all about.” With that service in mind, he joined Legal Aid in 1997.

In the time Dennis has worked at Legal Aid, he has worked on almost 1300 cases with a stellar 98% of his clients receiving a positive outcome. The success that Mr. Dobos has experienced is a source of pride and his motivation to continue to secure justice for those he helps. Since the foreclosure crisis hit Northeast Ohio, he has focused almost exclusively on foreclosure cases. In the last year, 56 out of 60 homes have been saved, and in the previous six years, Mr. Dobos has won 32 out of the 34 of the jury trials he litigated. During his tenure at Legal Aid, he has protected the rights and property of homeowners and tenants, fought unscrupulous lenders, wiped out well over a million dollars worth of debt, and negotiated innumerable cash settlements for his clients.
