I was wrongfully accused of a criminal charge and facing misdemeanor charges. As a foreigner working in NYC, this would have had huge implications on my career and US work visa if I had been found guilty.
I interviewed many lawyers prior to Dan and was unsure who to appoint. The moment Dan called me back I knew he was level headed and the right person to defend me. He took time to listen to my story and showed care and attention.
I thought my career was on the line and what was the result? 100% dismissed and cleared of all charges. Please use Dan Arshack if you want an honest & truthful person to defend your life. HE IS THE VERY BEST!!

I consider Dan Arshack more than just my attorney, but my friend. I was in a very difficult position when I was arrested and Dan calmed me down and walked me through what turned out to be a very complex and intimidating case. His briefs and motions to the court were meticulously prepared and delivered. I was very impressed by his legal acumen.
I am a physician, so had much to lose. I consulted with a number of lawyers before I chose Dan. He has a very calming presence and knows how to talk to judges and opposing attorneys. His staff was very professional also.
I hope I never need his criminal-law services again, but I would highly recommend him to anyone that does.

Dan Arshack was recommended by a mutual friend. The short of it is that I was in a major soup facing felony charges in a case where the court does not take matters lightly. Mr. Arshack is courteous, professional and has a no-nonsense attitude. Throughout the process (still in progress), he has always kept me informed on the goings on and his brilliant efforts have led to a situation where the major worries and consequences are likely to evaporate. His advice has been crucial along the way and his guidance on what to expect in each situation has been spot on.
This was entirely due to the innovative and “out of the box” approach that Mr. Arshack takes and his unique style is effective and sound. He is a veteran of the New York system and knows how to “play the tape to the end” for every turn, and provides clarity for the possible outcomes.
I am certainly glad to have him representing me. I could not have asked for anyone better during this testing time in my life. I highly recommend him, and feel fortunate to have found him.
