No need to look for anyone else. Daniel is the one.
Mr. Daniel is great! He has helped me every step of the way with my case. He is an attorney who is honest, responsive, and compassionate. He has tremendous patience and dedication to his client and knows how to deal with the most nerve racking circumstances. He's very knowledgeable and focuses on what's important to his client. The staffs at his office are very nice too. I highly recommend him.

The man is a life saver.
I contacted Mr. Selwa and literally within minutes he responded back to me. He gave me great advice which I regret that I didn't contact him earlier. He was extremely helpful and is very knowledgeable. He certainly knows his stuff.

Money well spent!
I am beyond satisfied with my lawyers work!!!! My lawyer was working a custody agreement case, and managed to come to a mutual outcome for me and the plaintiff. He seriously helped me with my case. If I ever needed a lawyer, Daniel Selwa would be my top choice. He puts his whole heart into a case. Daniel Selwa has fair pricing, and flexible payment schedules. TOP CHOICE LAWYER!!!!!!

Divorce case handled very poorly
I hired daniel in February last year and took his advice in confidence and he seemed very professional and good at what he does. I had alot to lose in my divorce if things weren't handled correctly. He made up a general separation agreement for us to get started on sent it to my wife's attorney. There was only a couple of things that needed to be changed. Small changes on child support that me my wife both agreed on and that I would kept my property that I bought and paid for myself. I informed Daniel that we needed to move fast and get her the documents changes so I could lock in my house and those child support numbers we agreed on.Fast forward to November and still I'm calling begging him to send a counter offer with small changes. I ask for everything on my case and it was clear to me then that no other offers had been sent to my wife's attorney. So of course by this time my wife was very upset that no agreement for child support or anything was in place still. Even had her attorney complaining in writing and wanting to go to court for lack of effort done towards my case. I hired a new attorney and had to take a really bad agreement because at that point we had a court date within weeks and she asking for way more at that point and rightfully so. I quickly realized the quick response and work on my case by new attorney that I was set aside. I ask Daniel for a refund because he only did one thing on my case in that amount of time and how it affected me. He response was I didnt pay him for a contested divorce so he did me a favor and cut me a deal.i hope noone else has to go through that with Daniel or any attorney because divorce is hard enough as it is. I dont know what was going on that he could never send any offers and work on my case. I got told alot of times by him that he would have it next week.Then I would call for days no response. I had alot of stress and anxiety, getting done like that over and over. I would not recommend Daniel in a divorce case if he needs more money to work on your case he needs to tell you so you know nothing is being done. Not recommended.
