Consummate Professional with free advice
Briefly spoke to Dan during a time of great difficulty for me and he was wonderful. I merely had a brief consultation with him but he was refreshingly honest in his guidance and counsel. His counsel was helpful and I hope to resolve this without an attorney but if I need one, I will choose him.

Boca lawyer, Dan Dickenson, saved my home of 18 years from my condo association's foreclosure motion.
Boca Raton, FL Lawyer Dan Dickenson, Esq is an honest, down to earth, and highly competent litigator. For a Boca Raton, FL Lawyer his billing was very reasonable. Dan Dickenson, Esq. handled a foreclosure matter for me and thoroughly out-lawyered the opposition giving me a chance to stay in my home of 18 years. Dan Dickenson, Esq. twice defeated motions from my condo association for final judgment to foreclose on my home. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs a seasoned trial attorney.

Great Job!
Dan made my unfortunate situation much better. He was very honest and knowledgeable, kept me in the loop with everything that was going on, and reached a conclusion that was above our expectations. He communicated very effectively and returned my calls very quickly whenever I had any questions. I would definitely recommend Dan to family or friends if they ever need a good attorney.

Excellent lawyer and a nice guy
After falling on hard times I needed the assistance of an attorney who would help me out of a difficult situation. Immediately I felt confident after speaking with Dan the first time. He is extremely knowledgeable about Florida law and he puts you at ease with his relaxed demeanor. I'm just a regular person, but Dan treated me just like I was one of his more well off clients. A rare find these days. If you are looking for an attorney who will advocate for you, there is nobody I would recommend more than Dan.

Support, care and sharp action. Always ready and prompt to solid advice..
When you are a foreigner abroad doing business and chiefly when you come to need the support in legal matters in a country sophisticated such the United States you have to be much more than well advised. You have to feel the man and lawyer willing to interpret firstly through your eyes, understand your difficulty to cope with a world of nuances about the specifics of the laws that better suits your needs aspiring to better serve you. This is my personal experience in the real world with attorney Daniel Dickenson.

Disappointing Experience with Daniel F. Dickenson - Proceed with Caution
I recently had an unfortunate experience working with Daniel F. Dickenson on a web design and development project for his firm. While the collaboration initially seemed promising, it quickly turned sour due to a series of issues, culminating in Daniel's failure to fulfill his financial obligations. Throughout the project, I encountered difficulties with Daniel's lack of clear communication, which often led to misunderstandings and hindered the progress of the project. This created numerous challenges, as I struggled to decipher his expectations and vision for the website. The most disappointing aspect of my experience with Daniel was his failure to pay the remaining balance for the work completed. Despite numerous reminders and attempts to resolve the matter amicably, Daniel's lack of response and unwillingness to settle the outstanding amount has left me with no choice but to pursue legal action. Additionally, Daniel failed to properly credit my work on the website, omitting my name and a link back to my portfolio, as initially agreed upon. This disregard for intellectual property rights is highly unprofessional and demonstrates a lack of respect for the work and effort put into the project. Based on my experience with Daniel F. Dickenson, I cannot recommend working with him. If you are considering collaborating with Daniel, proceed with caution and ensure that proper agreements are in place to protect your interests. It is disheartening to have invested so much time and effort into a project, only to be met with unprofessionalism and financial loss.
