AMAZING!
Daniel and Cali were absolutely amazing! I was in need of an urgent stay away order. I called them and within 15 minutes they were writing up the paperwork. I was in court that same afternoon and granted the order to protect myself and my family. Not only were they efficient, and incredibly knowledgeable about their field, but they were kind and caring through a very embarrassing and emotional time in my life. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism and support through this time. I highly recommend Daniel Szalkiewicz & Associates, P.C.

More than a lawyer
Recently my wife was faced with the awful digital plague that many women are facing, revenge porn. Someone has been posting and blackmailing her with private photos that were taken more than 10 years ago. My wife was obviously devastated with exposure of her body, but more so fearful that this person listed her full name, town, state, and Facebook page on this anonymous image board. Not only did they do that, they asked others to share repost the images on her Facebook and post lude comments on her Instagram. Thankfully, the Badass Army reached out to us and sourced out Dan. We reached out to Dan late Monday night (around 10 or so) He immediately called us and made us feel like we were in very safe and capable hands. The knowledge, resources, and passion Dan displays is something of a miracle. We joke and ask where he hangs his cape. To be honest there was a moment of, "how to get back to normal?" But Dan made brought us back! We are the righteous path to get justice and this feeling could not have come without the amazing efforts of Dan and the Badass Army. We are forever grateful and plan on becoming more involved in this dehumanizing act. Dan inspires us and reminds us that there are hardworking, caring individuals out there to help victims. Anyone who has a such unfortunate incident happens to them can rest easy knowing that Dan is on your side. THANK YOU DAN...YOU ARE BLESSING!

Wonderful Lawyer and team
As Vice President and cofounder of BADASS Daniel has been such a great help and asset to us. When we were just digging in and getting started he was a wealth of information for us and has continued to be a support, not only for us as an organization but for countless victims of image based violence/revenge porn.

Really good defamation attorney
I was going through some SERIOUS defamation and called up a couple law firms that seemed really lazy to listen and do the work but the moment I called Daniel`s firm,I was speaking with him from the get go and he wasted no time in listening to my case and offering advice on the appropriate way to go.We took action and the issue was resolved :).I highly recommend him to anyone going through a defamation issue.Daniel IS the lawyer you need.

Caring, perseverant, and very qualified. Great legal professional
Daniel was amazing. He persevered, even though my situation was a challenge, being honest and up front with me the whole way. He was creative in thinking of different ways to tackle this problem I had, and he succeeded in getting the problem removed!!! I couldn't be happier with his work, his attitude, his professionalism, and the success he had with this case. Even though I was beyond stressed out, he was calm and always honest with me in our chances of coming out on the winning end. I would recommend Daniel with the highest confidence that he will do everything possible to solve your problem, definitely give him a call!!

Dan took my difficult case head-on and the other side settled. Dan knows the law - he is very bright and an excellent negotiator- everything I wanted when I was looking for an attorney to represent me. Dan was responsive to my calls, managed my expectations, and addressed all my questions/concerns. I felt 100% confident in his abilities. Excellent to work with, would highly reccomend.

The next Johnny Cochran.....
Daniel is one of the best attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He has no fear and can take a case from inception to trial. He has a better command of the law than anyone I have met, including myself. Although some might think he is too young, he has used his years to learn more than many his senior. If I needed a lawyer, he'd be the first I would call. If I needed a second opinion, he is the first person I call.

Interstate Child Custody/ Support
I needed a lawyer who could handle "fighting" a narcissist in court. I was intimidated by my ex spouse's behavior which was the complete opposite of my mild mannered & sincere self. I thought "good can't win because good has to play by the rules". Now don't get me wrong Mr. Szalkiewicz played hardball when necessary but it was always with the utmost diplomacy. Final outcome all judgments in my favor. Cheers!

Exellent Attorney
After being unsatisfied with two attorneys I hired Mr. Szalkiewicz to handle my divorce. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. He was personable and made me feel at ease in such a difficult time. He was very clear when explaining what I should expect from my ex as well as what I may be entitled to. He was always accessible and willing to listen to my concerns. If you are looking for an outstanding and professional lawyer, I would highly recommend Mr. Szalkiewicz to handle your case.

Great Lawyer. Highly Recommended
I've worked with a number of lawyers in my life, both through work and personal cases, and Dan is definitely on the top of the list in terms of reliability and trustworthiness. My cases with him were small, but I never felt that he prioritized the interests of other clients over my own.
Posted by Danielle | January 21, 2013
Excellent Lawyer
When I first came to Faga Savino, looking for help with a recent car accident, I was lucky enough to meet with Mr. Szalkiewicz. Not only is he knowledgeable about a vast variety of topics, but he is easy to get into contact with and responds to all emails promptly. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer who truly cares about his clients.

Daniel doesn't know the law and is lazy.
Daniel advised me not to countersue, after I hired another lawyer, the opposition offered money to settle. Daniel's legal advice was incorrect, he wrong was about a lot of things. Hiring Daniel was a mistake that cost me tens of thousands of dollars. He was very unresponsive and lazy.
