Midvale divorce attorney Richard DowseMidvale divorce attorney Richard Dowse has gone through divorce himself, so he is easily able to empathize with the clients he works with.

“I know there is so much more to divorce than just money or property,” he said. “I feel that I can relate and work with individuals on an emotional level, not just a legal one.”

As challenging as divorce is, Mr. Dowse enjoys playing a role in helping individuals and families move on with their lives and start over.
