Mr. Daniels gave us outstanding advice regarding a living trust that his firm created for us. His fees were reasonable and the work that he performed was excellent and covered our needs. He was also timely and responsive to our concerns.
John gave us the proper advice on an intellectual property matter. Because it was not his area of expertise, he referred us to a firm in New York City that was able to assist us on this. Clearly, he put our self-interest above his.
I made an appointment with this attorney, showed up on time to find that he was not in the office. I was told he was running behind and that he'd call me when he gets in so that I can return. Never received a phone call. Unprofessional and a waste of my time.
When I received my DUI charge, it was definitely one of the lowest points of my life. Needless to say, I was not happy or proud in approaching an attorney regarding the case. I didn't really want to hear any self-righteous lectures, though it probably would have been in my best interests to hear that. But I found Daniels & Daniels through a friend at work, who stated that John Daniels helped her in her divorce case tremendously. When I met John, he was extremely kind, non-judgmental and used humor to diffuse any tension when I was discussing the case. He and his assistant spent a lot of time asking me questions and then spent more time in preparing and researching the case. Even though my BAC was clearly above the legal limits, there were a lot of holes in the police report that John spent time researching and then later, attacking at trial. The policeman admitted that he did not follow complete protocol because of his hurry to get back on the checkpoint line. It was short-staffed that evening, but that wasn’t known until the police were questioned thoroughly. John was able to get this out to a mere traffic citation! I did have points that I would have to pay, but any criminal charges were thrown out. It was a tremendous relief, as my career and reputation would have been affected immensely. I thank John to this day. And only after the verdict, did John finally give me a lecture about drinking while driving. I was in a much better position and mood to listen to it.
John helped guide me through a psychologically devastating divorce by not only being my counsel but by being my friend. There were many matters that were very difficult to deal with but John was very tactful and sensitive about it during sessions. But he was an entirely different persona in the courtroom and to the adversary (my ex). He was vicious, merciless and competitive – everything that I could not pull myself to be during a difficult time in m life. He fought relentlessly for my interests and when it was over, he had helped me gain a successful outcome. As much as one can truly “win” in a divorce case, I was able to do exactly that.
John is a very savvy attorney and knowledgeable of the law. I'm always amazed at how he brings his "A" game without fail to every venue where his skills are needed and/or on display. He's helped me, my family, and my business for the past twenty years. Though he is quite astute in his practices, he also is humble enough to know when to refer a case to another lawyer if he feels that he does not provide enough knowledge in that area.
Fantastic attorney with excellent litigation skills. He recovered the full amount of damages that we were seeking in a personal injury case. He advised us not to settle (many attorneys that I know personally would have advised to take the “bird in hand”) because he believed in the merits of our case. After a long, hard fight, we emerged victorious! And who was the first person to share in the celebratory champagne? It was John! A true friend and counselor, and what a showman in the courtroom!
John is a fabulous attorney and an even better person. You can trust him completely to give you the best advice possible, even if it is not what you want to hear. He is honest. He never lied to me. He was empathetic -my cause became his cause - he told me how my situation should be resolved, and he worked tirelessly to make that happen. Most important, he was action-oriented - he got things done for me and brought a resolution to the problem. He always did what he said he was going to do, and he did it quickly. He contacted the people he needed to, he mediated very effectively for me, and he was my trusted voice. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Mr. Daniels and his firm represented my and our family's interests on a certain estate matter. I could not recommend any one more highly than I could recommend Mr. Daniels. As a professional, he was considerate, prompt, responsible and courteous. As an attorney, he was non-pareil: his expertise in the interpretation and analysis of a disputed estate matter on our behalf was the difference for us to emerge as victors in our case. My family could not have been represented any better. And I have to close by saying that as a person, Mr. Daniels is a better individual than he is an attorney. He is kind, compassionate, funny, and sensitive. We are glad to have known him.
