  • Hart Miles

    Dan is a brilliant lawyer and his skills on the appellate level are top notch. He is also an excellent advocate at the trial level. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

  • Steven Saad

    You simply won't find a smarter criminal lawyer. Dan and I have worked on a few cases together, and I am continuosly impressed at his ideas and outside of the box thinking. Most lawyers with that level of intellect are lacking in people skills. that is not at all the case with Dan. He is as personable and approachable as he is intelligent. I whole heartedly endorse this excellent lawyer.
