I retained Mr. Danels about 6 years ago to handle a divorce case. He was professional and knowledgable. He explained options in good detail. Most importantly, he resited getting drawn into the incessant back and forth with the adverse attorney. This approach kept billable hours reasonable and proved to be an effective strategy.
Recently I retained him for an unrelated case. Although that case has not closed yet, his performance to date has been impeccable.
Michael Danels is a very good attorney. Over the years I have used him for divorce and separation, child custody, domestic violence, child support issues, foreclosure/short sale, and department of motor vehicle issues. Each time Mike came through when I needed him. If you need an attorney then I advise you not to play around call Mike - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIS SERVICES.
Mike handled my divorce. He took good care of me, even when I was argumenitive. He kept his cool, got me straightened out, and then got me divorced fairly. No small feat in this case.
Emails, phone calls were always answered promptly no matter what time of day or night.
Mike was always prepared and ready to proceed.
I would like to extend my highest recommendation for Attorney Michael Danels. Mr. Danels recently represented me in my divorce case in Maryland. He was responsive to all of my concerns and requests during the ENTIRE separation/divorce process. Most importantly, he was accessible whether it was by phone, in person or via email. His response time was usually in a matter of minutes, regardless of whether it was after normal work hours or on the weekends.
For court appearances, Mr. Danels provided ample preparation time and was on-time for each engagement. He also ensured that I was totally comfortable with decisions made and provided me with sufficient examples and support that further set me at ease. Mr. Danels was very knowledgeable of the courtroom officials, procedures and protocol and was able to make this portion of the process as smooth as possible.
Mr. Danels fully explained the expectations along with my options. He was proactive and did not wait for me to contact him. During no time during this process was I caught "off guard" or surprised. He was very thorough with my specific case and he paid close attention to details.
As a female, with very limited experience with the legal/court system, Mr. Danels acted on my behalf and made me feel confident that I would be accurately and fairly represented. From a legal standpoint, he fully minimized the amount of stress that I could have endured during this time.
Without hesitation, I highly recommend Mr. Danels for his experience, expertise, professionalism, responsiveness, "office side" manner, and overall legal abilities.
At the end, Mr. Danels presented a fair case on my behalf, which resulted in a successful settlement for me.
Many thanks to Mr. Danels!!!!!
Mike is a great attorney, very knowledgeable. His litigation technique impressed me so much so I added him to my legal team for custody and visitation.
