    • I recommend Daniel Finwall.
    • I hired Daniel 1-3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I lost my job during the meltdown and lost my house to foreclosure. After struggling for a few years I realized I had no choice but to declare bankruptcy. A friend referred me to the lawyer Dan Finwall.
    I received a free credit report and discovered more debt than I thought, another attorney had told me I needed to do a chapter 13 and make payments. Dan Finwall and his staff were very honest and I did a chapter 7 for a fraction of the cost of a chapter 13.
    I am now debt free and sleep like a baby, my foreclosure debt, credit card debt, hospital bills and other debt are wiped out. Dan Finwall gave me my life back, he treated me like family and is my friend forever. He is the best and most honest bankruptcy attorney in the a
    detroit area, he must be.

    • Daniel handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Dan Finwall and his assistant are the best lawyers I have ever dealt with. Due to a loss of income I had to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy, Dan helped me through the process in a very professional and efficient manner. Without all the frills and nonsense he gave me a fair price with no extras later, no surprises.
    I have had 2 friends whom I referred and they like the firm as well. I do not usually write these reviews but felt I had to as they got my life on track again, my stress is down and my creditors are wiped out!

    • I recommend Daniel Finwall.
    • I hired Daniel more than 3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    After reading Veronica's review I had to step up. My experience was similar to Veronica's except in my response. Attorney Finwall cut me off mid-sentence and said he didn't have time to explain everything to me, as well. I might have been upset if I hadn't realized that he is an attorney, not a law professor. Furthermore, with the economy as it is, I can only imagine how staggering his caseload must be. It's not surprising that he would want to "cut to the chase" so he could do the part he has to do to make it happen. If I could speak with Veronica I would tell her to get over herself and let the man get about the business of saving her life, as he did mine. I'm sure the price was so reasonable because he handles so many clients. To the extent I trust anyone, I trust Daniel Finwall.

  4. Not a good attorney to do buisness with

    • I do not recommend Daniel Finwall.
    • I hired Daniel 1-3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 7 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I used Attorney Daniel Finwall as my bankruptcy attorney and he was awful. He often cut me off in mid-sentence to give me his point of view as if I didn’t matter. He was arrogant and short with me. He would yell at me when I tried to understand the process and then he would say he don’t have time for this. Many times he ended the conversation before I had got all the information that I needed. Finally I called him and gave him a piece of my mind. It was a bad experience.
