WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF ADVOCACY FOR EACH CLIENT AND THE NECESSITY FOR THE CLIENT TO HAVE ACCESS TO THEIR ATTORNEY.

I graduated law school and licensed to practice law in 2001. I am licensed to practice law in Florida, Federal Southern and Middle District of Florida, 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.  I started a law firm in January of 2002 and acted as general counsel of a publicly traded company garnering invaluable experience as a commercial litigator and transactional attorney.  In April of 2002, I co-founded Kotzker/Shamy.  Over close to a twenty year period, I have been instrumental in building a successful mid-small boutique law firm in the heart of Boca Raton known as, K/S, Attorneys at Law.  I pride myself and my firm not only in its level of service, knowledge, expertise and more importantly, results we garner for our clients, but also my clients' access to their assigned counsel.  We ensure that our clients have access to their counsel.  As a business person myself, I also understand that fees should be borne upon work, not inner office communications or two second phone calls billed at minimum rates that bear no significance or benefit to a client's legal matter other than to bolster billable hourly time.

In addition to my firm, I have a built and cultivated a plethora of diversified businesses throughout the east coast of the United States.  However, I remain a practicing attorney due to my passion of the law.  I am a family man, blessed with a wife and two beautiful and wonderful kids.  I am a competitive athlete, having participated in sports for the greater part of my life. My competitive life in sports cultivated a competitive spirit in business and law.  I also love to keep my edge and experience like to experience life through adrenalin pumping activities, such as driving on a road course track or exercise until my heart feels like its pounding a hole through my chest.  Most of all, I love my family, and our firm is a family owned and operated firm.  Every one who works for my firm is family to me, and our clients are treated and cared for like family just the same; hence why the firm is successful.  We have clients going back from the inception of the firm.

If you have any legal needs, questions or require consultation for a potential case, consultations are free of charge.  Always feel free to contact our office should you, a loved one, a friend or coworker is seeking legal counsel, and we hope to build a relationship with all clients and make them part of the K/S, Attorneys at Law family.  Thank you for your time and consideration reviewing my biography.

great attorney
I had the pleasure of consulting Mr Shamy on a real state contract and was not sure what my legal rights are. Mr Shamy took the time and effort to formulate the most comprehensive answer I could imagine. He went through every item on the agreement and explained it thoroughly. He also explored even unexpected scinarios and provided detailed answers. In brief, Mr Shamy is a great attorney. He would be my first choice if I decide to seek legal representation

He took the time when he did not have to.
I did not use his services, but he took the time to help me by writing an email that gave me clear answers I needed anyway. This saved me a lot of time and money, and I appreciated it.

Extraordinary attorney, masterful at his craft
Daniel is an extremely intelligent and empathetic attorney. As an attorney myself, I have a unique insight into what differentiates good attorneys from great ones; Daniel and his team at K/S Attorneys at Law are simply phenomenal. Indeed, every call with Daniel is a Masterclass in law. If you want an incredible attorney who cares deeply and is truly masterful at their craft, look no further than Daniel Shamy. 10/10

Absolutely marvelous!
I couldn’t be more happy with his work. He literally made himself available to me anytime day or night. I haven’t dealt with that many attorneys in my time, but if even half of them are as dedicated as Mr. Shamy, then I don’t know why lawyers get such a bad name. A true credit to his profession...

Excellent Guidance
Over my time in business I've dealt with many lawyers, unfortunately Daniel cant represent me in all matters but is able to in most. Not only does he help with whatever the presenting issue maybe but he also helps you to understand the underlying legal issues which most lawyers will tend to not take the time in explaining. I'm very grateful for having Daniel and his firm represent my companies.

Excellent Lawyer
I can not say enough good things about Daniel Shamy. From our first conversation, he was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was very quick to reply to my questions and talked me through every decision in my case. I would highly recommend him for any case.
Response from Daniel Shamy June 8, 2017
Thank you so very much, Jennifer for your wonderful words and review of my services. There is nothing more gratifying to an attorney than hearing (or reading) a client expressing their appreciation for their work.

Highly recommend
I was seeking legal advice on how I could start my small business and Mr. Shamy was so helpful. He took his time and showed personal interest in my plan and vision for my company. He and his assistant, Maria, helped me out a great deal. I would highly recommend Mr. Shamy to anyone seeking legal advice or representation.

I never worry about legal issues now that I work with Danny
As a young entrepreneur, there used to be aspects of business that would intimidate me. Danny and his firm have completely removed that anxiety and fear from me. If I need paperwork, legal contracts, representation, advice, or even just a simple question answered, Danny is always a call away. I had an experience with a large company trying to bully my smaller company. In a few words, I had hired an employee who previously worked at a firm in a similar business model as I. The owner of the this larger company saw on opening and sent me lots of threats and legal documents and threatened to sew me all because he was spiteful. I had to stop my business for three days because of it. It was really nerve racking for me because I had never dealt with that part of business before. I called Danny, I told him all the facts, I didn't leave out a single detail. Danny protected me. I thought for sure this guy was going to sew me or wipe me out but Danny represented me and completely took my nerves and anxiety away. Once Danny got in my corner this larger company completely backed off because they saw that I was represented by a lawyer who understood what he was doing and they were no longer able to push around a smaller company. Danny and his firm have always been fair with price, and they never speak over me because they know the intricacies of the law and I don't. They always speak to me in plain English until I understood what was happening. That parts really means a lot to me, because I believe in transparency and everything is out on the table with them. Daniel has written all my contracts, and we are in talks of getting some more contracts written for a new business venture I am taking part in. If anyone ever asks me for legal advice, I just give them Dannys number. I don't even think twice about it. He has helped me so much. I truthfully don't think I will ever need another lawyer.

This lawyer in hand is better than a broken Engine
Mid-2014,I had an unfortunate but preventable car problem. A aftermarket modification to my car had been done the beginning of 2014. That modification required a certain type of program to be uploaded into the cars computer. When the aftermarket provider failed to complete the upload,my car engine sustained a catastrophic failure. After attempting to reach a fair solution with xxxxxxxxxx,without success,I reached out to Dan Shamy. A car enthusiast, he accepted my case. Mr.Shamy and staff are very professional, real caring individuals.Mr.Shamy is the type of person to listen intently every time I either spoke with him over the phone or in person. I felt like my case was as important,just as if I were a V.I.P.from a global corporation having Mr Shamy review a corporate legal issue. Mr Shamy and associates are truly there for you from start to finish.I have no regrets having chosen Mr Shamy for taking care of my legal issue.Thanks

Saved my mom her escrow deposit of over 10k
Having worked with Dan in the past, he's helped many of my real estate clients with foreclosure defense. He's a great communicator and unlike many other attorneys.. he actually cares. This review hits closer to home. My mother had gone under contract with a builder for a pre-construction home and when all the smoke settled she wasn't able to get financing and the bank declined her. With that being said, the builder decided that they were going to keep the escrow deposit that they were holding. This was a very delicate situation and fortunately I had contacted Dan. He guided my mother through the entire process with love and care. She ended up getting her escrow money back due to his attention to detail and knowledge of the law. Since then I've referred many clients because I know that if Dan can take great care of my mother that he will with my clients as well. I highly recommend Daniel if you're looking for an expert to defend you in any matter. Thanks Dan!

Dan is the man!
Dan is great. I had a litigation issue with a local company and Dan Shamy gave me the time and guidance I needed to make an informed decision. His representation was professional and he was always fully available to address my issues. Everything was resolved in my favor thanks to his efforts. Thumbs Up.

Dan Shamy is an excellent, down to earth, attorney
Daniel Shamy met with me to fully undertand my situation and then provided assistance in writing a letter on my behalf. He was a real person - down to earth and helpful. He was candid about fees and costs and did all he could to help me make financially sound decisions. Would highly recommend him.
