Great lawyer, and a great person.
I hired Danny, for a DUI ticket which was later reduced to reckless. I was really scared at the time because I have never been arrested. He acknowledged the stop that was wrongfully made and decided to fight the case. He kept me informed at all times. There is no words that can described how good he is. He will take care of your case no matter what and be there in the process.

Great Guy, Great Lawyer
I recently met Danny at a conference where he was obviously one of the top lawyers in the group. Not only does he display great knowledge to the other attorneys in his field, he obviously cares greatly about his clients and what is truly best for them above his own interests. He makes the good lawyers proud.

Giant Heart!!
Mr. Daniel was recommended to me by a friend of mine at a former law firm. I would not hesitate to use him again in the future and I will recommend his services to everyone that I come across in need. He's an extremely humble man and from what I can see the most honest attorney I've ever worked with. I love the fact that I could get in contact with him whenever I needed and he did not exhibit any kind of attitude whatsoever. Definitely a hard working man and it shows.

DUI Dismissed!!
I was referred to Daniel by another lawyer because I was arrested for DUI. I was really nervous and scared that I would lose my job and go to jail. As a single mother I could not have this happen. Even though I blew under the limit the state charged me because of the other tests. During the case I was really nervous and was considering taking the offer of the program to avoid anything else. Daniel kept me calm. He told me of the risk of going into the program. On the day of trial they dropped the charges! I am so happy that I trusted his advice the whole way.

Thanks, Mr. Izquierdo
Daniel Izquierdo came recommended by people I've met at the FIU school of law and met-up with me to discuss my case and options, immediately. We were able to work-out a resolution with the state, and I regained my peace of mind. Traffic 'clinics' could be a solution, for some, but my case needed some extra attention, and not a different office paralegal each time I returned a call. Mr. Izquierdo always called me, himself, and remembered the details we have talked about, even 3 months after discussing them. We were able to avoid further legal action against me, and Mr. Izquierdo made sure I followed up with the court's orders to get my misdemeanors taken cared of. Thanks, Daniel.

Quality Service, and piece of mind.
Due to the negative connotation of our legal system, when one becomes involved in a DWI investigation the notion "of our innocence until proven guilty" does not apply. I was judged and sentenced by the FHP department without any tangible facts. Mr. Izquierdo was referred to me by a friend; and he truly proved himself a trustworthy ally in my ordeal. Anytime I had concerns, he addressed them right away. He was very involved in my case and reviewed all the facts; and was objective throughout my case. His professionalism and his attentiveness transcended the current "Lawyer mills" out there only making money out of personal necessity. He restored my faith in our legal system, the right of the citizen. If you need a lawyer who you can trust, Mr. Izquierdo is the right individual for your case. He will be honest and objective, and is truly a great individual. I would recommend him to anyone!

Honest, Affordable, and Knowledgeable DUI Defense
I worked with Mr Izquierdo on my Husband's DUI charge. THis drinking and driving charge really shook up our family because this was the first time any of us had ever had any sort of legal problems. I met with several other lawyers and always felt like i was being sold a bill of goods but it was apparent from the beginning that Mr. Izquierdo knew exactly what he was doing and took charge of the situation before it was too late. He was honest and straightforward and answered all of my questions (even at odd hours). I Thank him so much for getting the charges dropped and getting our lives back to normal!!!

Knowledgeable, Professional, and Trustworthy
Mr. Izquierdo has been my attorney for several traffic violations in the past 4 years. His services have always been top notch every time. Regardless of the level of traffic violation, or the time it required to get the issue solved, Mr. Izquierdo was by my side the entire time and kept me informed each step of the way. He has earned my unwavering trust as my attorney. I have recommended his services to various family members and friends, who have all been marveled by his level of expertise and professionalism. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Izquierdo for ALL your legal needs.

Currently undergoing the process of dealing with a non-accidental DUI charge and its ramifications.
On the heels of an especially bad bit of judgement, I was facing down a DUI charge - my first. I'd already spoken to another lawyer, however I found him to be a bit boorish, unhelpful and rather unknowledgeable about a subject he claimed to specialize in. Fortunately, I was subsequently referred to Danny. What a difference! People often speak of bedside manner when referring to doctors, however I would argue that an easygoing, infectiously calm demeanor is equally as important in the practice of law as it is in medicine. From the moment I arrived at his office, I was immediately put at ease. He patiently walked me through my situation and my options, making sure that I understood everything as we went along. By the end of our meeting, I was feeling optimistic. Hiring him was an easy decision. Since he began representing me, he's made himself very available, returning calls and texts promptly and never going longer than a day without getting back to me. Having him there has really made going through this ordeal easier. I was able to get into the program I was hoping for, and since then he's made sure to check up regularly to see how I'm progressing. Whenever any concerns arise - and there have been some, though none due to anything he's done - he's worked through the problem with me to reach a favorable resolution. I'd recommend Danny to anyone for any legal issues whatsoever. He's prompt, attentive, professional, intelligent, personable and thorough. He's an ideal representative of the profession and truly one of the "good guys."

Great Attorney !
I was charged with disorderly intoxication. This was a difficult time for my family and me. I was extremely fortunate to have Danny handle my case. Danny was able to have the charges dropped and my record cleared. During the process, I found Danny to be professional, thorough and compassionate. His knowledge of the law, attention to detail and follow-through are the reasons that differentiate Danny from the other attorneys in his field. Danny always took the time to respond to all my question and concerns promptly which help me get thru this difficult and painstaking period in my life. I wouldn't hestiate to work with Danny in the future and I strongly recommend him to anyone that has a simlar mishap with the law.

Highly Recommended
Danny was a pleasure to work with. He kept me informed and kept me at ease about the process. He was able to get my reckless driving reduced to careless driving. I would strongly recommend Mr. Izquierdo.

Unfortunately, I needed the services of Mr. Izquierdo in 2014. I found him to be competent, trustworthy and a man of his word. He got a great result in my case, as well. I would recommend him to someone in need.

It feels great to be free!!
Attorney Daniel Izquierdo is an outstanding attorney and a great friend! The reason why I got in contact with him is because I was arrested for attempting to open a bank account using fake documents. I was facing several felonies and worst of all, I had an immigration hold. However, thanks to his passion, dedication, knowledge and friendship, not only did I receive confort, but also, he managed to close my case and drop the charges I was facing! I am forever greatful with Attorney Daniel Izquierdo.

Responsive, Knowledgeable and Trustworthy
Mr. Izquierdo handled my criminal case in a very thorough yet expeditious manner. While always professional, he was very personable and always kept my best interest in-mind.

Great service and a great result!
Danny helped me with a recent traffic ticket that I received when going 30+ mph over the speed limit. Even though the ticket was set for mandatory trial because of the speed the cop clocked me at, Danny was able to get the ticket dismissed because the citation was defective. Danny kept me informed and explained everything to me in detail. It did not matter that this was only a traffic ticket, Danny was very responsive and made it a point to make sure I was comfortable with how my case was progressing.

DUI and DWI Attorney | Nov 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Anyone who is thinking about hiring an attorney to represent them in their DUI case in South Florida should realize that the penalties for DUI are incredibly harsh – especially if you are a professional and care about your license! The arrest is just the beginning... and if you don’t hire Danny it’s only going to go downhill from there. There are a lot of DUI lawyers in this town, but I highly recommend that before you hire a cheap DUI attorney or try to handle your case yourself, you talk to Danny first. There are plenty of other lawyers on the internet or in “El Clarin” - you know, the ones that take any case that come through the door. Danny is an attorney that specializes in DUI. He is the Attorney that Attorneys and other professionals call when they get in trouble – that should give you a hint as to the quality of his representation. However, don't call Danny if what you are looking for is a "$500 discount DUI attorney." Danny doesn't discount his fees--he doesn't need to."
