    • I do not recommend Daniel Bacon.

    TRIPLE BEWARE!!! Stay far away from this guy! He did nothing but bs about how fantastic and successful he was at wrongful terminations and sexual discrimination, only to fold at every turn of our suit. He did absolutely nothing but take what little money we had and made us look and feel like fools. If it appears to him he might actually have to work, (We did all our work for him and he would try to charge us for that), he shuts down leaving you to defend yourself from the oncoming lawyers. He is very arrogant, unprofessional and was a BIG BULLY toward us! PLease search harder and find the right person for the job... never Daniel Ray Bacon!!!!!!

      his client settled his case with one defendant with JAMS, and the other Defendant went bankrupt. and unfortunately, some clients who claim discrimination do NOT have the evidence to support their claims and are angry about their situation. Despite what people think, there is no such thing as a "slam dunk" and I do not tell clients that they have a slam dunk. Daniel Ray Bacon, Attorney at Law

    BEWARE!!!!

    Our family hired Daniel Ray Bacon for a dispute over a trust. It turns out that Bacon does not handle this area of law but took our case boasting about how versed he was. Bacon strings you along, promising that your case is really strong. He bills you for subpoenas, depositions, all the while stating he's gathering "evidence." His depositions clearly show he's grasping for straws and unprepared. His plan from the get-go is to bill, bill, bill and urge you to settle before any trial can occur, because that is where his flawed work as an attorney all comes out. We eventually left Bacon after one year and about $100,000 in legal fees. It was our mistake picking Bacon. After finding a real expert in trust law, we realized that Bacon wasn't even fighting the right battles. There were fundamental errors made by Bacon which showed he was oblivious to trust law. In fact, based on the manner of how he conducts his deposition, I'm flabbergasted that he had enough competence to pass the state BAR.

    Bacon is downright incompetent. For example, Bacon assumed that assets in the trust were properly deeded to the trust when all the while, they were left in the name of the trustor. He failed to realize this. Once brought to his attention, he stated that it was not an issue which it turned out to be. Bacon was fighting for a trust that was never properly funded to begin with and never saw this huge problem.

    Google Bacon in the California BAR and you will find adverse action was taken on him previously. He was "suspended for one year, stayed, placed on two years of probation with an actual 60-day suspension, and was ordered to take the MPRE within one year." This man is downright dangerous, stay away! He will hurt your pocket book, but worse, he will hurt you while you are involved in a lawsuit. Bacon is best described as the quintessential lawyer that our society loves to hate.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This false and defamatory posting comes from someone who was not even my client, but the son of one of my clients and thus probably accounts for the false inaccurate statements made about me. My clients did not make a complaint against me. I was the second lawyer hired out of an eventual five attorneys who represented the plaintiffs in this bitter family property and money dispute. After I was hired I reviewed all of the files produced from the previous attorney which included an ongoing lawsuit which had been filed between family members. I reviewed the lawsuit which I did not file, took only one deposition, subpoenaed all relevant records, and discovered: (1) that a family trust (which I did not create) was not completed by placing the real estate into the trust and thus was an ineffective trust as far as certain real estate holdings were concerned; (2) that family members had been manipulating bank accounts and properties with different side deals and agreements, and (3) that the lawsuit would not resolve this family feud.

      Since the lawsuit relied upon a trust which was not properly created and was thus ineffective, I continuously recommended and advised that the parties settle their disputes. This was a family fight between greedy siblings over the family matriarch’s money and property which could have ended if they had listened to my advice or obeyed the court orders, but my clients refused to listen to my advice and settle their family feud which caused the court to become so concerned that a conservator with separate attorneys was appointed by the court on its own motion to take over the family matriarch’s assets which nearly caused a family’s financial assets to become liquidated.

      The court ordered the parties to mediation, but my clients refused to obey the court order and attend the mediation. Yes, my clients defied the court’s order because they refused to settle their disputes. I repeatedly recommended settlement and mediation because there was nothing to be gained by further fighting, but my clients continued to refuse to follow my advice and settle their disputes and fired me instead of listening to me and settling the matter as I had advised. My clients wanted to continue fighting because one sibling felt the other sibling was getting more somehow and they would not compromise and in the end they paid several more lawyers after me to continue their family feud. Since a family member wants to post negative false and malicious comments about me rather than accept responsibility for the fallout of their own feud and recognize the mess they created themselves, why don’t they identify their case number in San Francisco so others can go to the court’s website and see the final judgment which reveals the extensive family mess and how it was all sorted out. The Plaintiff family members’ own stubborn refusals to follow my advice, settle the matter and attend the mediation session the court ordered them to attend is the cause of the family spending money on attorney fees. Any complaint about paying attorney fees is no one’s fault but their own for ignoring my advice to settle and defying the court’s order to mediate their dispute. I have resolved other family trust disputes successfully because my other clients listened to my advice, something this family refused to do by terminating my services.

    • I recommend Daniel Bacon.
    • I hired Daniel more than 3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Wrongful Termination matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Twice Mr. Bacon has served us very well. First, in my wife's discrimination case, he was able to negotiate a fair settlement in a timely manner. Second, in my wrongful termination case, while up against a gang of vicious lawyers, inept or prejudiced state officials, and a thoroughly biased judicial system, over a three year period
    he was able to keep my case alive and in the end negotiate a settlement.

    Mr. Bacon is unfit to practice law. He is lazy, does not know his field and ends up costing his clients both materially and reputation wise. He lies and hides valuable information from clients. In my opinion he is the worst lawyer I have ever dealt with and extremely untrustworthy. He made a total mess out of my case when it was suppose to be a tremendous slam dunk, (according to him in our very first meeting.)Please stay away from this lawyer.
