I highly recommend Dan Herr
I hired Dan to help me obtain repayment of a loan. Though he was prepared to take the matter to court, he guided me through a cost-saving out of court settlement that netted me more than if we had gone to court. His conduct was very professional and honest, and his negotiating skills are top notch.

Thank you!!
When I unexpectedly found myself in a difficult employment situation, I had no idea who to turn to. Initially, I hired some big name attorneys, but it turned out they had only ever represented employers and it became evident quickly that they didn't know how to handle my case. Thank goodness for Daniel Herr! Within 15 minutes of hearing my case, he knew exactly what to do. He was straightforward with me as to what he could/couldn't do and reviewed the possible outcomes. True to his word, he was able to settle the case quickly. While I hope to not need his services again, I know who to call, Daniel Herr.

Intelligent, Knowledgeable, Prompt
Mr. Daniel Herr is a remarkable lawyer. He gave me the best possible options for my case and then performed all the required action points promptly. I had to worry about nothing. He would always return my calls/emails instantly. He is very confident and very knowledgeable. He is thoughtful and intelligent, and in the very first meeting itself he established some really nice points which was really beneficial for the case. He is also very reasonable with his fees and I was amazed by his productitvity, quality and professionalism. His sharp vision,intelligence,thorough case analysis,right strikes at the right moment and amazing representation/communication/co-ordination brought a fine end to my case and I can't thank him enough for this.

Compassionate, responsive, professional and dedicated
Dan is currently representing my wife and I in a civil rights violations case. Because the case is in process, I can't comment much. What I can say is that once he reviewed the extent of violations that we experienced and the resulting trauma, he continues to reassure, validate and fight for proper justice to help make us whole and to hopefully heal from this damage that continues to impede abilities for forward movement and return to normalcy. Without him we would be cast aside and the actions that occurred tolerated and presumed justified; which may harm others. He remains an excellent attorney and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone in need or if necessary to procure his services in any of his areas of specialty. We need more attorneys like Dan. M & C

Great Attorney, Great Guy.
I hired Dan recently for an employment case. He was a professional from start to finish. I felt like I knew him for years. He even inspired me to follow in his footsteps, and give law school a shot. I can go on and on about this gentleman. Keep up the great work! May God bless you in your future endeavors.

THE BEST EVER! !!!!
I came across Daniel on Avvo and due to his previous reviews i wanted to give him a try. It was the best decision I've made. Daniel is very prompted in providing detailed information on your case. I came to Daniel with a wrongful termination suit. Daniel is very personable he doesnt just treat and make you feel like a client he makes you feel like you've known each other for some time. I will MOST DEFINITELY refer him to anyone that needs his assistant in this field i only wish he was able to take on other case outside of the corporate area. He would be number ONE on my list. Very grateful client..

Remarkable Attorney
Mr. Herr is a remarkable attorney. His confidence in the courtroom is truly impressive. My husband and I were the defendants in a recent lawsuit in Superior Court and hired Mr. Herr to represent us... a 3 day trial can be extremely stressful, but Mr. Herr was able to keep us calm and focused. Forever thankful for his faith in us and for the closure he brought to our family.

This note is to express my sincere appreciation and thanks to Dan and his firm for all he has done to resolve my case without litigation and in the shortest time possible! I'm extremely satisfied with the outcome and give all the credit to his effort! All along I could clearly see that he was truly committed to my case and he has given it his undivided attention when he worked on it. It is because of people like Dan that citizens trust and depend on the legal system. I wish him a continued success in his young career! God bless him and his family!

Help through a tough time.
I was not able to use his services, however he was extremely helpful to me, and responded quickly to all communications. He was friendly and treated me with absolute respect, helping to guide me through what I needed to do even though I was not his client. I think that any time you are in need of an attorney it's a rough time for you, so having someone who really seems to care makes things so much less difficult. I can certainly see that he'd fight for his clients.

Civil Rights
Daniel was eager to take my case and even came to my home to have our initial meeting. We're in the very early stages of the process so I will post another review when my case is over. Daniel has given me confidence in his ability to win my case. He has been responsive and professional so far.

Excellent, trustworthy lawyer
If anyone is in need of a lawyer, I would highly recommend Daniel Herr. He is very upfront, honest, professional, and knowledgeable about the law. Daniel kept me informed every step of the way through my case, listened to what I wanted, and then accomplished it. He did an excellent job in the court room; I was highly impressed with him and I will never use another lawyer. He was easy to get in touch with whenever I had a question, and he always returned my calls immediately if he was in court, etc. I am very satisfied with the service that I received from Daniel. Anyone looking for a lawyer should give him a call. You will be glad that you did!

Not as advertised
Dan dropped me as a client after he told me I had a slam dunk case for several months. He called me the day after I wrote my negative review and told me that if I change it to a 5 star review, he would meet with me for a free consult for another case.
