    I've worked closely with Daniel in many civil rights matters. He is incredibly hard-working and consistently thinks outside the box. Highly recommended.

  • Christopher Stephen Norman

    I've known Dan since law school and can honestly say that his work ethic and dedication to advancing the cause of his clients is second to none. I do not hesitate to refer civil rights or employment matters to do Dan, as I know a client of his is a client in very competent hands.
