Dan was so easy to work with. He mage sure I truly understood what was going on and Amy possible consequences or any writes I would be giving up. He was thorough, kind, compassionate, and very sharp.

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!

Dan McCabe is a awesome Lawyer and a great person to have on your side!!
Extremely on top of everything with my case. Never was too busy to talk to me when I have questions. When I Was unsure of something he talk to me not just as my lawyer but as a person. When I wasn’t ready to settle he told me that was fine, never pressured me. He said it was all about what was best for my situation. That to me is the best kind of Lawyer to have. He help me come to the best decision for my case and settlement. Thank You Dan McCabe.

I felt like a burden was lifted off my shoulders!
I was dealing with chronic pain for several years after my work injury. As you know when dealing with a strain sprain injury it does not heal with repetitive motion in a physically demanding factory environment. The heavy lifting and physically demanding tasks were causing me excruciating pain certain days. Every day I was in a lot of discomfort in my upper back and neck. I just wanted to quit, but until I was referred to Dan I had no idea what options I had going forward. I would have had no way to get my previous bills covered if it wasn't for his intervention on my behalf. But thanks to Dan's hard work and helping get a settlement I can move forward to a new job without a big cloud of uncertainty hanging over my head in regard to this matter. He showed kindness and concern for my case, and he and his amazingly competent paralegal Amy patiently answering my questions over the phone when I was stumped as to what to do.

I never thought that he he was able to settled the case for the amount I received. I will recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer. Si estas buscando un abogado que trabaje para ti llamalo a el.
