Fantastic representation during an extremely difficult divorce
Dan is extremely knowledgeable divorce attorney that was always prompt to respond to my emails & phone calls throughout my case. He also provided the legal reassurance in my extremely difficult divorce during the numerous pitfalls that occurred from the opposing party. His billing practices are extremely detailed & never left me questioning what his legal fees were used for. Overall working with Dan was a pleasure and with his assistantance made a difficult situation much easier to deal with and I would highly recommend his legal services.

Outstanding Elder Law Attorney
I hired Dan Schuller to help get Medicaid for my mother. I live in Canada which complicates things...and this was a very difficult case. I interviewed by phone (due to the pandemic) four lawyer firms. Dan was the only one I had confidence that could succeed in getting Medicaid. Dan's knowledge, professionalism and sincerity won me over the first time I talked to him. The other lawyer firms outright said, "They couldn't do it." Dan was always available by phone or email to answer my questions. He never made me feel inferior for asking for guidance. He was a pleasure to work with. Dan succeeded in getting my mother her Medicaid in an amazing timeframe. I give Dan the highest recommendation for anyone looking for an Elder Law Attorney!

Worth Every Penny
Dan was excellent from start to finish and he clearly knows the ins and outs of divorce / family law. I had a very complicated interstate case which had been ongoing for multiple years which Dan was able to settle and get me everything I wanted and more. He was always very responsive, organized and was excellent in dealing with the other attorneys and judge. I have worked with many attorneys over the years and I can honestly say none have impressed me as much as him!

Excellent experience re divorce
I highly recommend Dan in the area of divorce/separation. He was very clear in what I needed to bring to the first meeting (consultation) which saved us time and money. Dan is knowledgeable and straight forward. I am most appreciative that my case was handled with care and in a timely manner.

Efficient & Knowledgeable
I went to Dan for a family court matter that resulted in a much needed revision of my separation agreement (originally drawn up by my ex’s attorney prior to obtaining representation for myself). Dan was proactive in finding points that needed clarification & provided excellent verbiage to generate a more satisfactory agreement for me. I appreciate his efficiency & keeping me in the loop throughout the process and definitely feel better about having sought representation, which I was reluctant to do. I highly recommend Dan for an attorney.

Dan Schuller is an exceptional attorney!
I hired Dan to handle my divorce and am SO glad that I chose him. He is incredibly knowledgeable and very time efficient. He was very quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, and always kept me in the loop as to what was going on. Not only did he handle my case in a very timely manner, he was also a pleasure to work with. He's very nice, and above all, extremely confident in himself and his work, which gave me the utmost confidence during this very difficult time in my life. He never failed to put my mind at ease and took care of everything in a very professional manner. Should I ever need any legal assistance in the future, I will most definitely be contacting Dan Schuller again!

A very positive experience!
My sister and I accompanied my parents to a Consultation with Dan regarding an overview of my parents' Wills, POAs and Health Care Proxies. Dan was very knowledgeable and was able to explain more recent laws that warranted some changes on my parents' documents. We then hired him to make the revisions. He had drafts completed by the end of the day and we were able to meet with him a week later to review and have the forms signed. Dan made it a painless process for my parents.

Outstanding Attorney
Recently, after 26 years of marriage I went through a devastating divorce. From the moment I contacted Attorney Schuller, he put my mind at ease that he would handle my case with my best interest in mind and help me understand all that was ahead of me. He was true to his word and explained extremely difficult concepts easily so I could understand. He was professional and empathetic to my situation and was willing to work around my schedule anytime I needed to meet with him. Any phone calls I made were immediately returned as well as any correspondence with my ex-husband’s attorney. During negotiations, he was respectful, fair and reflective with all parties involved. Mr. Schuller’s main interest is to end a difficult situation as quickly and amicably as possible. He truly cares about his clients—that was clearly evident through his kind words and sound advice. He is not interested in long, drawn out cases that are full of contention that ultimately end in high legal fees. I highly recommend Attorney Schuller. He is a kind, considerate and extremely intelligent lawyer. He will not stop working until all your questions are answered and you are satisfied with the outcome you desire. He puts his all into his work and it shows. He truly made an extremely unpleasant situation seem bearable. If I could give him 10 stars I would!

Review on services for Dan Schuller
Dan has been invaluable as our attorney. His knowledge and concern for our situation has truly benefited my family. Also having Dan represent us, has been a stress reliever. Wonderful to feel like you have someone on your side.

It's not just the bottom line
I left a marriage and my East Aurora home without legal representation. Our separation and divorce agreement was managed by my husband's attorney. Months later it became apparent that there was little protection for me regarding the division of our property. Enter Dan. He explained the law and requested relevant documents. He was unfailingly clear, professional and responsive. He hammered out an agreement which specified how and when the marital property was to be split, and then my file was closed. Nearly a year later my ex-husband began the process of refinancing our home. His mortgage lender offered me a minimal payout. I forwarded the offer to Dan. (And this is where it matters that you have confidence in your attorney.) In the following weeks, all correspondence regarding the refinance went to Dan. My payout for the equity in the marital home was to be sent to Dan. At the end, it was considerably more than I expected, and enough for me to buy my own home. But ultimately it's not just than the bottom line one should consider in a tough legal situation, it's also the peace of mind that comes with a really good lawyer. Dan Schuller is that really good lawyer.

Clarity and guidance
Divorce is never easy. With the uncertainty, the unknown, and the what comes next, I needed an attorney. I needed clarity and a course of action. Mr. Schuller provided that for me in our initial consultation. I left that meeting refreshed and not so lost in the legal melees. Mr. Schuller always kept me up-to-date with emails and phone calls. I never had to guess what was going on and he answered my "what if...." questions. When I called his office, I wasn't shuttled away to some paralegal. I dealt with Mr. Schuller one on one. It was good to know I had an advocate looking out for my best interest. Like I said, divorce is never easy. But with the clarity and guidance from Mr. Schuller, it was much easier. Thank you, James

Extremely Responsive and Helpful
Dan was extremely helpful at every step in the process for my husband and I. He explained everything we had questions about in layman's terms (when needed) without any issue. His quick response time was appreciated as we were on a tight deadline for closing on our home. I would definitely recommend Dan and his firm for their services for anyone who is in the market for any of the types of law they practice.
