About Daniel

Learn Daniel’s areas of practice.

PERSONAL INJURIES CAUSED BY CAR ACCIDENTS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACT A PERSON'S LIFE. I TRULY CARE ABOUT EACH AND EVERY CLIENT THAT COMES INTO MY OFFICE. CLIENTS CAN TELL WHEN THEIR ATTORNEY ONLY SEES THEM AS A CASE AND NOT AS A PERSON. REAL COMPASSION CAN'T BE FAKED. I DON'T FAKE IT. I CARE.

I became a personal injury attorney to help people. When clients call me, it is not to have a chat about the weather or current events; it's because something traumatic happened to them or a loved one. 

My goal is to provide skilled, compassionate and efficient representation to each client that comes to my office.  I give the same level of effort to each case regardless of the potential value.  Whether the case is potentially worth thousands or hundreds of thousands, the client can expect the same level of commitment and attention.  No case is too small.  If I see a way to help the client accomplish their goals, I will do my best to do so. 

 

My firm and I seek to secure maximum compensation for each client in the most efficient time possible.  If we can settle a case in a few months, we'll settle it in a few months as opposed to a few years.  Each case is different and the time each case takes to settle is dependent on many factors, but I push to get your case settled in the most efficient time possible taking all aspects of your case into account.

 

It is my privilege to work as hard as I can for each client and to make sure that they are heard, understood and appreciated.

Great Attorney
I hired Dan after I was injured in a car accident. He got more money for me than I thought I’d ever get. He answered all my questions and kept me informed every step of the way,. I highly recommend his services!

Great Results
I have used several lawyers before Attorney Petroskey and he is by far the most accessible and effective lawyer I have ever used. He always returned my phone calls and knew the system in and out. Also, his rates were very reasonable and he never stopped fighting for me. I will never use another lawyer.
