Dismissed!!!
Dan went above and beyond handling my case: Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury. He kept me informed every step of the way, got me in contact with a private investigator and even had the news groups remove my address from their websites. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, my case was dismissed!

WE WON OUR APPEAL THANKS TO DAN BLAU
Dan Blau is a wonderful attorney. He was on our side from the beginning. He continually kept us informed. He did such a great job fighting for my Uncle's freedom. HE WON OUR APPEAL and helped reduce my uncle's sentence from 30 years to max 5 years. I highly recommend him.

Thorough and Knowledgeable
Having previously spent a great deal of money on incompetent lawyers just to receive disastrous results, it was reassuring to consult with an attorney who not only demonstrated the required level of expertise, but also took time to patiently research and respond to my questions with thorough explanations. The only reason we chose not to proceed is because he was not available for the extensive representation we would need.

Charges Dismissed!
I hired Dan Blau after I lost my case in the Supreme Court of North Carolina. He explained that we had a chance to win my case on a motion for appropriate relief. They are generally difficult to win but he was able to get all of my convictions overturned and dismissed. He was always great about keeping me updated and informed. I highly recommend him!

Top Quality Service and Best Results Possible
I highly recommend the services of Hale Blau & Saad. I recently found myself in need of high quality legal counsel and representation. After much searching online and multiple consultations face-to-face, I decided to hire Dan Blau as my attorney. Dan's commitment to providing informative, well-thought out legal counsel; consistent communication and patience in answering any and all questions I had along the way; and effectiveness in generating the best possible outcome for my case are truly appreciated.

Great Job Handling Ticket
My wife received a citation in an accident, and Dan took care of everything, getting the ticket dismissed. I've referred several friends and clients of mine to him and have always gotten great feedback from them.
