Dan Mccabe
Everyone needs a lawyer to navigate through this difficult time in one’s life. He was always willing to answer my questions patiently and take care of the communication needed when they stop paying me and if you don’t have a lawyer, you won’t continue getting Workmen’s Comp. and that was a huge relief to have someone fighting for you which Dan represent me well. The help didn’t stop there he was always in contact with my doctors which sometimes can be frustrating in an of itself. My frustration last over two years and he help the entire time and would not have made it through without his guidance.

Mr. Mccabe has helped me in more than one legal case over the years. As an attorney, he is extremely competent, experienced and reliable. As a person, he’s honest, friendly, compassionate, straightforward, and trustworthy. He’s also very communicative and loyal to his clients and always returns phone calls when you have questions or concerns. Being prepared is of utmost importance to him when performing depositions and court appearances, and he is diligent in his approaches to winning his clients cases. I am extremely pleased with the performance of Mr. Mccabe and I highly recommend him as an attorney. Also, regarding the office staff, they are incredible with having on time filings, and they are always there to answer questions and concerns!

Spinal injury from my workplace
I received a spinal injury at work and couldn’t return for some time. My employer said I was being let go because they thought my injury didn’t occur there. Attorney Dan McCabe had them take me back, accommodate my needs to work light duty and pay my lost wages. After a necessary surgery I was not able to return to work. Dan was by my side the entire time, answering my questions, dealing with my employers, making sure I received all of my treatments and therapy. Dan made sure my employer paid for everything. Unable to return to work, Dan negotiated a settlement that met my needs and satisfaction. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know.

Falls come suddenly an unexpectedly. After over 40 yrs of nursing I was left vulnerable. I found Dan McCade to be professional, knowledgeable, and empathetic. He guided me through a rough time. I would highly recommend him.

Dealing with Daniel McCabe was a breath of fresh air. He is incredibly focused with a great attention to detail and quickly and freely explains every facet of your case as things progress. We worked together for over three years and I always knew the status and next steps of my case. Dan projects a sincere level of concern about your health and recovery as things progress. He goes out of his way to assure that you have full knowledge of every aspect of your case. As we moved to closure, Dan provided a constant level of communication that made the final stages of this case and proceedings amazingly simple and in my best interest. THANK YOU DAN FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID ON MY BEHALF, GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Review for Daniel McCabe
Dan McCabe is a phenomenal attorney in every sense of the word. Extremely professional, transparent, and helpful. He took on my case when no other attorneys would and was very accommodating throughout the entire confounding worker's compensation process. He took the time to explain each step of the process when I had questions about any aspect of the legal proceedings. In the end, he increased my settlement amount by more than three times of the original offer from the insurance provider. I can't recommend Dan and his firm highly enough. Thanks again for everything, Dan!

Knowledgeable & Honest
Daniel McCabe represented me in my worker’s compensation case, and he was the absolute best. The truth of the matter is no one wants to be hurt at work, and dragged around in the process because your unsure of your rights. He was able to restart my comp checks and kept me informed each step of the way until we settled the case.

Experienced, Responsive, Resourceful & Dedicated
Dan McCabe is a lawyer that gets results and definitely knows his way around the courtroom. After being hurt @work I wasn't being listened to and my injury wasn't taken seriously by my job, their Dr or the insurance company so I called Dan McCabe. Within a day or two I met Dan at his office and he thoroughly explained the process & all the legal expectations. I knew in less then 10 minutes he was the right lawyer for me. I was confident and hired him at the end of our consultation. He immediately went to work holding them accountable. I saw results fast. I was able to get the treatments and tests I needed. Dr's were finally willing to see me. The insurance company began to respond and I began to make progress treating my injury. Dan always kept me informed & made himself available to me anytime I had a concern or questions. Dan was able to negotiate a large settlement once I decided I wanted to settle my case and made sure I was treated fairly. My family and I are grateful for all that he has done for us. Thank you!
