  • Dana N Morris-Brooks

    I worked for Dayten as a paralegal in the mid-1990s. I was impressed by Dayten's work ethic, but also how he changed my thinking about what a "lawyer" is. He cares about his clients and really listens to what they need.

  • Bernard J. Powers

    I have been familiar with Attorney Dayten Hanson's legal work for many years. He has substantial experience in debtor / creditor & bankruptcy law matters. I have been impressed by his sophisticated bankruptcy knowledge and ability to assist clients with their need for help. He is one of the few experts on tax issues in bankruptcy. I highly recommend Dayten for clients who need legal advice on bankruptcy or debtor / creditor law.
