Knowing my situation Dennis has always worked with me and was always there and came threw definitely will always use him and recommend him.

Helpful, understanding, and extremely knowlegable.
I have met Dennis a few times through an engagement he was involved in. I have seen him help MANY people through his segment on the local morning radio show. So, when I needed some legal services, he was the first person to pop into my head. I emailed him and QUICKLY received a response. We talked a a few more times, and it was decided to take the case. His rates, very reasonable. His attitude, caring. His communication, out of this world. I never would have thought I would have that type of communication from a lawyer. If you need any help, advice, or guidance with legal issues, Dennis is the man to go to.

Determined Attorney
I would like to write this review to let anyone who's looking for a good attorney ; this is your man!I have been working with Dennis for a while on some issues concerning my disabled daughter. In this time I have found him to be very conscious of the issues that were a concern to me and that has not always been the case. He was always prepared and knowledgeable when he needed to be.If there were things he didn't know about he made sure he took the proper time to research and get the correct information. Dennis always presents himself as professional, yet very able to identify with what one may be going through on a human level! When you need to get in touch with him, its not an automated machine you're getting!!!!!!!!!!!!! Excellent attorney; its been a priviledge to work with him. Elizabeth

Great experience!
I recently had an excellent experience using Dennis Sawan's services. I was in need of legal assistance to handle a situation with a former friend, and he was able to secure the court order I needed within a few hours of our initial conversation. I am so appreciative of his hard work, dedication and excellent communication. Thanks Dennis!

I Strongly reccomend Dennis
First of all I have had quite a year, I lost my father in March and then was evicted from the property they left me. I called around and was unable to obtain council in the city in which I resided at the time. I was turned away by everyone I contacted, because quite frankly they were afraid to fight the uphill battle before them. However, Dennis was not intimidated and went to work for me right away. I found it extremely easy to trust Dennis and would hire him again to represent me in a heartbeat. I feel trust is such an important trait of an attorney client relationship. The fact that he isn't out to just take your money, and he actually does care about you were big selling points for me. If I wouldn't have hired him then I would have lost the property that I still have title to, now I have the ability to sell it which really wasn't the case before. I just feel he is a rising star in the business and I was fortunate enough to find him when I did. In fact I just hired him again to help me sell the property so the other company doesn't try to sell it behind my back. I have faith in Dennis Sawan and so should you.

Saved My Life
Mr. Sawan not only handled loitering to solicit charge and a few other cases, but also had the judge suspend all of my jail time. He is the best attorney I've hired. Worth every penny!
