Firm Pillars

At The Dross Law Firm, we’ve walked the walk, sat at most sides of the table, and been where many clients have. We’re here to provide you with solutions designed from experience and crafted with insight.

Raw Experience

We are not your run-of-the-mill law firm. At The Dross Law Firm, we understand that experience is more than just time spent in a courtroom. Our founding attorney, Arique Dross III, brings his unique personal journey from adversity to triumph into our practice. Raised in the foster care system, he faced challenges that could have dictated a very different future. Instead, he chose a path of education, resilience, and self-improvement, culminating in the establishment of a law practice that champions those who need it most. Arique’s experiences – as a foster child, foster parent, ACS prosecutor, assistant district attorney, and parent – are woven into the fabric of our firm, providing a depth of understanding that sets us apart.

Insightful Representation

Our commitment to providing insightful representation is shaped by lived personal and professional experiences. We ensure that our clients’ needs are anticipated, their rights defended, and their stories heard. This isn’t just a job for us, it’s a calling; we’re not just attorneys, we’re advocates.

Strategic Solutions

At The Dross Law Firm, we believe in crafting strategic solutions that are tailored to each client’s unique circumstances. Utilizing our comprehensive understanding of the law and a keen sense of strategy born from our founder’s personal journey and professional experiences, we provide solutions designed to safeguard our clients’ interests and achieve their objectives. We’re not here to just navigate you through the legal system but to walk with you, side by side every step of the way.
