I was extremely nervous about finding an attorney and was immediately put at ease when I spoke to him on the phone. This was my first experience with the criminal justice system and I was very frightened. He took the lead, immediately going through what steps we would take to get the best possible outcome. He calmed my anxiety by always being really available whether it was communication by text or phone call. Not only did he get the job done, but he was a stellar example of humanity and empathy, and I could not have asked for a better lawyer. I consider myself extremely lucky. Thank you again, Daniel.

I found Dan due to his high ratings at Avvo. I had never been in a situation where I needed a defense attorney, so given I didn't have any immediate family in law, I was going in pretty blind. Dan walked me through the case and implications over the phone for free, and was totally calm and informative. He was able to get me an ACD, which is something he's done for many people. The best thing about Dan was his responsiveness; anytime I was concerned or had new information, I could text or email him and he would get right back to me. He frequently stayed in touch with the DA and I would recommend him to anyone.

Daniel made himself available to accept a case at 1am and provided clear advice and reassurance to myself as a person dealing with the judicial system for the first time on behalf of a family member. He attended arraignment proceedings the next morning and was able to get a petit larceny case acquitted with consideration of dismissal (ACD), meaning in 6 months it will be expunged from the records as if it never happened.
The public defender appointed had already agreed a guilty plea with the prosecutor, which would have meant a criminal conviction and a potentially negative consequences in the future for employment and immigration.
Each individual case is different and should be judged on its own merits but I would always advise to hire a private attorney if circumstances allow and can fully recommend Daniel.
