Attorney Dan Schlanger epitomized the understanding that an attorney must know his area of law to help clients. His legal knowledge and professional skill coupled with his tenacity were the means to winning my case. This attorney has truly persevered through all challenging legalities of consumer fraud concerning my case with a major auto dealership. Dan maintained excellent communication throughout the entire process with me, from one on one negotiations with the dealership to filing necessary court papers in order to litigate the matter. He communicated with me realistic expectations as the case progressed. Daniel Schlanger was exceptional! Although I never want to be in a fraudulent situation again, I would not hesitate to acquire his assistance in the future. I would recommend Schlanger and Schlanger, LLP to fight for my rights as a consumer because he has a bull’s eye comprehension of consumer protection law.

Dan is very efficient, responsive to his clients and has a healthy respect for his clients, the judiciary and even his adversaries. Dan is an excellent consumer protection litigator who will provide valuable insight and guidance in any matter within his ambit.
