The ultimate goal in our case was to negotiate a felony charge and have it reduced to a misdemeanor. Through Dan working with and developing a relationship with the assistant district attorney, over the course of ten months, we were able to accomplish that goal. Throughout those ten months, Dan researched all avenues with which to attain this end result, and his attention to detail and follow up with us was excellent.
Dan's best attribute I think is that he manages expectations with his client very well. Emotions run high in a criminal case (as they did with us), and by not promising what he could not deliver upon, he kept us at a fairly even keel. Dan also commands a presence in the courtroom with his professionalism and his knowledge, thereby giving a client the best possible chance for a positive outcome. We highly recommend Daniel Hochheiser.
Very organized and always on top of things when I needed answers to. It was for a drug case and he went the extra mile to help me. Couldn't ask for a better result to my case than what he got for me. Even when he wasn't feeling well, he would still be helping me on my case.
I would definitely recommend Mr Hochheiser to anyone else who got in trouble. His price was competitive but definitely worth it.
I was recently one of Dan's clients. He is trustworthy, very knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. He's had numerous years of experience in the industry and I would highly recommend Dan to anyone in need. He will work his hardest to fight for you and he is flat out, the best.
Dan Hochheiser took a personal interest in my case and devoted many hours to seeing that I got the best plea bargain possible. He also went above and beyond to see that I got a placement for my community service, which was no easy task. I suspect that another lawyer would simply have left me to struggle with the situation on my own. His answers to my emails usually came within minutes, often at night or on weekends. I strongly recommend him.
Dan Hochheiser has been my attorney for over 5 years. Every time I have needed him he has come through - with flying colors.
In 2008, I was arrested in the wake of a string of arrests associated with providing Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer with call girls. I made the mistake of hiring another attorney because he told me what I wanted to hear. This attorney, Mark J. Heller, stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from my family and left me sitting to rot in Riker's Island for close to 4 months. We later found out that he had been suspended for 5 years with 18 different plaintiffs against him for stealing bail money and not showing up for their trial dates.
After 3 months of sitting in jail, I came back to Dan and within 4 business days he got me out on reduced bail and back at home with my family. He fought hard for me to get released which wasn't easy because the former attorney had thoroughly bumbled my case and pissed off the A.D.A.
Dan was with me every step of the way from calling from jail in tears to negotiating my plea, negotiating my bail and even helped me put my life back together and got me off probation 2 years early. All of these things I will forever be eternally grateful.
You can not find a more honest, trustworthy, caring and knowledgeable attorney in the world. Dan will always tell you the truth - even if its not what you want to hear and will fight harder then anyone to win your case. I would never hire another attorney.
