  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I endorse this lawyer. Dan has done some excellent work in fraud cases for consumers who were victimized by deception and fraudulent sales practices. He knows NY law and cares about making sure his clients understand their rights. And most important of all to me, as an attorney, is that he likes winning and hates losing. A lawyer who knows the law, answers your questions straight, and who hates losing - that is exactly what you need on your side when you need a lawyer. I highly recommend him to you.
