Best Lawyer in Upper Darby, PA
I trust Dan; and his legal training and experience has shown to be highly effective in dealing with my case. In addition, he's well liked and respected in the DAs office, and he's easy to communicate with. He's reliable, efficient, diligent, knowledgeable, and genuinely kind at heart. He takes his time to understand the entire case, and shows that he values your personal perspective, and works hard to ensure you are getting the best outcome in dealing with the law. He's been helpful in easing my anxiety, specifically around not knowing the legal system and the possible outcomes. I highly recommend Dan as a professional lawyer and his legal services!

Honest opinion
I had never been in any legal trouble before and got myself arrested twice in a one month span and it could have been pretty bad. Dan did not make any false promises to get my business and was up front the whole time. He got one of my arrests withdrawn and the best possible outcome on the other. He was very helpful in answering all my questions and always made me feel like a priority not just another client. I had met with other attorneys prior to Dan and he was much more reasonably priced. I chose him based off online reviews so I felt like I should write this review to maybe help the next person. Thanks for everything Dan!
