Workers compensation Attorney | Dec 08
Relationship: Co-worker
"While many attorneys handle Workers Compensation cases, very few attorneys have Dan's experience and skill, especially on the larger cases. Perhaps even more important than his experience is his desire and devotion to his clients. He works his cases very thoroughly to make sure that the case is maximized, and his client obtains a great result. Finally, Dan and Deuterman Law have a well-deserved and strong reputation in the legal community for providing top notch legal representation."
