Dan Tota assisted us with the purchase of our first home. He was wonderful to work with thoroughly walking us through the process and answering all our questions along the way. His team was also equally helpful and knowledgeable.

The results from having Dan Tota represent me were nothing short of a miracle! I was really in the worst position in my life when I was given Dan's number. I had signed an agreement with the sellers without a mortgage contingency. I put my life savings down as a deposit and was about to lose it if I couldn't close the deal. Everything was falling apart and the lawyer I was using told me he could no longer help me. Dan worked with me every step of the way in a friendly, kind, and informative manner. He negotiated with the sellers for more time and helped me find the right financing so I could close the deal I could not recommend anyone more highly and because of Dan I am now the very happy owner of my dream home!

My husband and I know nothing about purchasing a home so when the time came we had millions of questions. Dan and his team were nothing short of amazing. They took the time to review all information and explain each step of the process. The seller's lawyer tried having us sign several bizarre contracts and every step of the way Dan continuously guided us against it as well as fight hard to make sure we were protected. Dan and his time are punctual and friendly and I plan to use them again in the future for all my legal needs.

I endorse this lawyer. I recently had the opportunity to work with Dan on a very difficult short sale transaction in which he represented the seller. Dan was not only pleasant to work with but also very knowledgeable in this area. In addition to the short sale situation, there were other judgments that needed to be taken care of. Dan dealt with these other issues competently and efficiently which despite the difficult nature of this deal facilitated a very smooth closing. I welcome the opportunity to work with Dan again.
