Great lawyer, highly recommend!
I hired Daniel as my attorney for an EEOC workplace discrimination case that was eventually resolved through negotiation. I was very hesitant to face the other party’s lawyers with the fear of them taking advantage of my lack of knowledge for how these legal processes work. I gave Daniel my full trust, and he excelled at educating and guiding me through the entire process. He was very communicative and supportive, which made me feel at ease and gave me the confidence I needed when dealing with such a stressful circumstance. Daniel was driven to help me have the best possible outcome and I couldn’t have done this without him.

Labor dispute
My lawyer represented 4 coworkers with a degree of similarity to their respective cases. He was able to use the collective complaint to negotiate a good settlement for all concerned. Even for those whose cases, taken individually, would never have been successful. Speaking as one of the weaker cases, I am extremely pleased with the result!

Employment case- So thankful I came across Daniel. Outstanding!
Daniel is a diamond in the rough in this business. He actually cares and goes out of his way to help in any way he can. He listened to everything I said and gave me precise feedback. Then he checked in periodically until I got closure on my issue to make sure everything was ok. I would give him more then 5 stars if I could.

Efficient, Effective, and Earned Every Penny
Daniel was able to provide immediate support for the legal needs I had on little-to-no advanced notice, and quickly adapted to the specific legal challenges I had to overcome to reach a fair and agreeable outcome without the hassle of going through depositions, discovery, and other undesirable steps I had ahead of my case if not for his agility in navigating the specifics of my case. Personable, professional, and precise; just a few of the words I would use to describe how Daniel expertly handled my legal needs.

Awesome lawyer
In 2021, I needed an employment lawyer to help me fight injustice. Daniel was there for me and helped me to find the justice and peace of mind that I had lost. He came highly recommended and for good reasons. He listened to my case and really took the time to hear me. His professionalism and sense of humor made working with him as easy and enjoyable as litigation can be. Not all heroes wear capes - some wear suits, and win your case.

Great representation!
My situation was unique as I am deaf and had a case against the state. When searching for an attorney (Three years ago, and the case settled a couple of months ago) Those two issues were big issues for attorneys considering my case. One being that I was deaf and the concern of how we would "communicate" and who would "foot the interpreter bill (which can be astronomical granted)". This was heart breaking because ADA (Americans with Disabilities act was enacted in 1990 and this was an issue -- generally. The second issue was the protections surrounding State cases. I didn't understand that until I went through this journey for reasons too complicated to explain here. Daniel was the ONLY attorney who I felt well equipped to take me and the state on. He had this gung ho personality who -- while navigating unchartered waters by taking on a deaf client -- had this attitude of "we will make this work somehow" and was willing to experiment and keep an open mind. His dedication to me and the case while going after the state went above and beyond what I have come to expect from attorneys I have worked with professionally and personally. His dedication to investigation, evidence review, discovery and negiotation for the best resolution was at times unorthordox but produced results I was pleased with. He exceeded my expectations and crafted a resolution that rehabilitated my career and allowed me to finally heal and move on with my life. As a result of our three year journey, we have become friends and respect eachother as professional colleagues in our chosen professions. I highly recommend Daniel. You will not regret it.

Exceptional Representation (Race & Retaliation Case)
Attorney Arciniegas is awesome. He took my case shortly after a conflict of interest was discovered with my previous attorney. There are not many lawyers that would step up and do that, but he did and I'm forever grateful! Hiring Daniel has changed my life and significantly improved my working environment. Daniel is very knowledgeable, hard working and extremely experienced. Everything the opposing counsel threw our way, Daniel had a plan and executed it flawlessly. Daniel exuded confidence and that put me at ease throughout this entire process. This was my first time bringing a lawsuit against an employer. If I am ever in this situation again, I will hire Attorney Arciniegas again! I highly recommend Daniel.

Employment and Labor case
Hired Daniel to help with a retaliation case and he exceeded all expectations. He delivered on much more than promised, winning our case in a reasonable time. In regards to employment law, he is the man for the job. 10/10 would hire again.

Couldn’t have asked for a better attorney!
Daniel and his team are absolutely amazing! I was very unsure about the case I had but I had a gut feeling that my former employer was mistreating me, so I gave Daniel a ring. He went above and beyond to ensure I was taken care of and made sure I received everything plus some that I deserved. His knowledge of the industry is top notch, Daniel and his team were very communicative with every step. I could not recommend him enough!
