Very Strong Attorney. He will get you results.
He got results. Professional and Fair priced. Can stand toe to toe and deliver with the best in bucks. Trust me. Dont think because he is younger that he isnt as effective or as well known as the biggest, most expensive names in bucks. It's worth a sit down with Dan before you commit a huge retainer elsewhere.

Highly recommended
He did such an amazing job and had some of my charges reduced from little to nothing. Always stayed in contact with his clients. I was very impressed and satisfied with his work....

Professional yet friendly
Unfortunately I have had to deal with a few lawyers over the years. I found Dan to be one of the best. His manner put me at ease. He answered my questions clearly and succinctly. When asked he clearly communicated what options I had and possible consequences to consider. His advice was priceless. There are many lawyers out there but you would struggle to find one better. I am a totally satisfied customer and would not hesitate to use him again.

I have no other words for amazing and life saver!
He went above and beyond for me I feel. I was so lost and after talking to other attorneys I felt hopeless. He was able to assure me he could help me. He never made any false promises but still kept me in good spirits throughout the case. He was able to get me into a program that I usually I wouldn't be able to be considered for. Because of his hard work I can now hold my head high without any kind of record or time. He was very understanding for my situation and I never felt as if I bothered him with my ignorance or random panicked texts about a notice I got in the mail. All around a decent person and an excellent attorney! This man will fight in your corner and you won't feel as alone or terrified by the system with his help!

Dan is Exceptional!!!
I had a warrant that showed up to my address 17 years later from a mistake I made in my younger adult years- it was devastating. This could have ruined my career of 11 years. I reached out to Dan and immediately he explained the process and his fees. He met me at the courthouse to turn myself in (which was actually just a hearing reschedule and I didn’t have to be processed again). Easy in and out process! Next was just waiting for my court hearing, and Dan assured me over again that I would be fine when all was said and done. Dan was able to get all of my charges dismissed as well as my record expunged, all without me even having to show up to court again! His professionalism is unmatched and I appreciated all of his help in this humiliating process. He made the situation much easier to deal with, it was handled in such a short time span beyond what I imagined and I am elated that it is all finally over. I would highly recommend Dan and I certainly have no regrets in choosing him to handle my case!

Impossible Deal
I was arrested for a bogus yet serious crime... felony assault of a first responder. I hired Dan. After reviewing all the info Dan told me that he was going to get me an ARD. I called another fairly prominent attorney. He said there is no way I was getting an ARD but if somehow my attorney was able to get an ARD I should jump. Dan got me my ARD. Dan is professional and actually cares about his clients. If you call or text him he gets back to you by they next day. If you need an attorney you should call Dan Shatz. You're crazy if you don't.

Amazing Results !
I was facing a wrongful charge of Retail Theft due to an error with a merchant’s Returns system (long story). I tried for weeks to contact someone at the merchant’s corporate headquarters to explain what happened and have the charge withdrawn. But no one would get back to me, and the court date was fast approaching. The matter was somewhat complex and I knew I’d be in over my head trying to explain the situation to the Judge, so I contacted the local Bucks County Bar Association for an attorney referral. I was at first a little skeptical when they asked for $40, but I agreed, and they recommended Mr. Schatz. After a very attentive and informative consultation with Mr. Schatz, I felt strongly that I wanted him to represent me. The unexpected bonus was that the nature of my case was also in need of his partner’s experience (Ms. Stancu). After reading both of their profiles and client reviews, I was thrilled to have them both representing me, which involved only a minimal increase over what one attorney would have cost. As the court date approached, I had not heard from either of them and I became concerned that my case was not being attended to. So at that point, I actually emailed them offering to pay more to make sure my case was getting the required attention; but they quickly replied saying not to worry and that I’m “in good hands”. To be honest, I was still worried. Then, the day before the court date, I received a call from both of them (conference call) letting me know that they have been working on the case but did not want to give me false hope before they had confirmation that THE CHARGE WAS GOING TO BE WITHDRAWN ! I could not believe it. And I did not even have to appear in court the next day. As it turned out, retaining Mr. Schatz and Ms. Stancu was one of the best decisions and expenditures I’ve ever made. I thank God for them ! Sincerely.

DUI Legal Assistance
I am tremendously grateful to Daniel Schatz for his legal assistance and sincere compassion during a really challenging time. He came recommended by a friend but his knowledge, expertise, and patience surpassed my expectations. I was always given practical advice and the necessary information and treated like an individual and not a number. He guided me through a long and daunting legal process and worked diligently with other individuals and professionals to help achieve the best outcome for my case. Mr. Schatz far exceeds my scope of what most lawyers today usually do. Simply put, a lawyer like Daniel Schatz is exceptionally rare. Thank you for your outstanding services and a hand to many more brighter days.

Top notch
Daniel worked out a great deal for me, he was able to negotiate 5 years probation and restitution in which the probation automatically ends when full restitution is made, it could've been bad and involved significant jail time but he kept me out. I don't plan on ever having to use his services again but if I needed to I wouldn't hesitate to call him to help me again, I will recommend him to everyone!

A Relentless Fighter
Dan is an excellent lawyer. Even his colleagues think very highly of him. In my particular situation, I received a school bus ticket for a bus that took over 2 minutes to pick up the neighbor’s kids. The kids were seated while the driver was talking to the neighbor about his open house that was coming up. It doesn’t matter that the kids were seated and the driver was having a frivolous conversation with the parent. I received the citation carrying 5 points and a 2 month license suspension. This would be catastrophic for my family. We appealed the summary conviction at the county level and got the ticket to a careless driving ticket - 3 point offense and no suspension. This was a huge win in my book. Some of the other attorneys wouldn’t even take my case because they deemed it futile to fight this particular case. Dan was very professional and supportive throughout the whole process. If you give Dan your business, you will not be disappointed with the outcome.

Reasonable price, honest consult, excellent presentation, and favorable disposition
I did not face serious charges- I wished to be found not guilty or to depose to an alternative that left "no trace" on my record. As for time spent and resource allocated- Dan certainly cut into his margin ensuring he was prepared. Preparation is everything with a trial and the proof was in the pudding. In court- Dan articulated respectfully and pivoted around the State's attempts to condem. In the end it was a one sided victory. Overall - this was money well spent. I believe the only negative is Dan does not practice outside of criminal law- where I would enlist him further.

Collections dispute resolved seamlessly
After sending all the information we could gather on an inproper collection, Dan dove headfirst into rectifying the collections immediately. He contacted the collections company multiple times in an attempt to clear the debt or come to a mutual monetary resolution. He pulled through on an issue that has been in existence for over a year. We could not be more grateful! Thank you Dan!

He was an amazing attorney. He made sure that he answered my calls no matter what time of the day even on the weekend when he wasn't on the clock, which meant a lot to me. He also was there when I was afraid that I may have had COVID and made sure that the judge continue my case. You won't be disappointed if you hire him!
