"...I’ve enjoyed working closely with Mary and her team."

I’ve enjoyed working closely with Mary and her team for several years. She’s an invaluable resource to our non-profit, and I am very grateful to be working with a law firm that is professional and knowledgeable.

Mary has demonstrated a deep understanding of the complex legal landscape in the non-profit sector, and she is able to provide insightful and strategic guidance to our organization. She is an excellent listener and communicator, and she is always available to answer our questions and address any concerns we have.

She is an exceptional attorney who is both professional and personable, and I admire her hard work in building such a great team at Tovella Dowling, PC.

"...I recommend Mary without reservation."

I had the pleasure of setting up our non-profit corporation with Mary Dowling. The templates and platforms that we used were very efficient and effective. I am now working with Mary on amending the bylaws of another non-profit and continue to reach out to her with questions that I encounter during our course of business. I recommend Mary without reservation to anyone wanting help and/or advice in the non-profit corporate law space.

"...Mary was fantastic for our organization."

Mary was fantastic for our organization from consultation all the way through the formation of our nonprofit organization, including putting up with us through a name change. All of her communication was timely, professional, and left no questions unanswered. It was great to put our company in her hands. She is a huge part of making it go. We will continue to retain her legal services as long she’ll have us, and would recommend her highly to anyone looking to form a nonprofit. Best money spent!

Her dedication in helping our organization is beyond words. Her guidance and expertise is highly valued! Thank you Mary!



"...I highly recommend her."

I recently started a new Corporation and called Mary Dowling. She helped me set up my Corporation, is available when you have questions, and made the process extremely easy. I highly recommend her if you are setting up a new business. She is extremely kind and spoke with me by answering all of my questions before I even decided to go with her. She is excellent to work with and will help you get your needs met.

"...Would highly recommend her."

I am an entrepreneur who has founded a nonprofit, and three for-profit entities in the healthcare space since 2012. I have worked with Mary specifically on all three entities. Mary is incredibly responsive, committed, and diligent in her counsel not only up-front, but for all ongoing support also. Mary has created all the legal documentation for our nonprofit and helped us gain nonprofit status in a very expeditious time frame, drawn up operating agreements for two LLC’s, helped me move an LLC to a Corporation, and provided ongoing consultation for a variety of matters over the years. We have worked together for over 8 years and I will continue to do so with confidence. Would highly recommend her for any business related matter.

Mary is an important part of our team. Countless times she has guided our organization with her expert knowledge through difficult paths. Any new program we start or any major move we make our first call is to Mary. She is always so confident in her answers because of her expert non profit legal knowledge.
