Robert Dain is the best lawyer in this area. He is a seasoned legal professional, experienced and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law. Well respected in the courts, and held in high regard, Mr. Dain is fair and honest, humble -- all while committing himself to his clients' best interest in their case. I swiftly moved my divorce case to Mr. Dain after realizing my "family law" junior attorney was not making any traction, unfriendly and one who pandered to the OC. Mr. Dain is savvy and simply genuine. He had my best interest and that of my children at the forefront, in advocating for me. He had to work quickly to undo the former attorney's lack of detail for an upcoming deposition. It was amazing how quickly Mr. Dain got up to speed; asking all of the right questions, to my now ex-husband. We settled and did not go to court yet Mr. Dain was prepared in the event the opposing team would not cooperate. Most importantly in the interest of my children, we did not wish to subject them to that hostile environment. I look forward to working with Mr. Dain in the future regarding estate issues and perhaps, follow-up with my divorce case. His representation and negotiation skills were life-saving during such a difficult time. His calm, upbeat manner and strength have a way to put his clients at ease. I'm certain many would agree.

Got my case dimissed (Non-Suit)...
Robert (Bob) Dain and his partners at his firm handled my case (foreclosure resulting in subrogation claim filing Breach of Contract) in a professional manner and I didn't feel like he was 'riding the clock' so to speak on my case. EXPERIENCE MATTERS.... The plaintiff in my case was hoping for easy picking but Bob and his firm was able to blow it out of the water causing the Plaintiff Attorney to request a non-suit (Dismissal without Prejudice). If you have a $90K problem you need a GOOD attorney and I would not hesitate to counsel Bob and his firm again for cases in Virginia.

Hail Mary
After being involved and a minor car accident, I learned after visiting three doctors that I was going to have to require major C-spine surgery. The first attorney that I retained did absolutely nothing to help me recover my damages. I later fired this attorney and retained an attorney from a large law firm Based in Baltimore I was told that too much time had lapsed between my surgery and my making a claim That the accident was the cause .. I was also told that I may end up owing money based upon the $200,000 in medical bills that I amassed . Having a legal background, I knew that this was not entirely true. That's when I met Bob Dain. Bob immediately Took over my case, and worked vigorously to recover my damages. Within six months, Bob had recovered a six-figure settlement on my behalf!

Bob Dain is awesome
Mr. Dain worked on my personal injury case. He was exceptional from start to finish. His staff kept me and my case organized. He was able to help me with everything necessary to get me a great settlement. I would refer anyone to him to put money in their pocket.

Mr. Dain handled my case with high a professionalism. He provided needed guidance on my case with much sympathy and wisdom. As it was a difficult time in my life, I needed an impartial listener who gave his expert opinion without being judgemental. I highly recommend his service and his firm.
