Extremely Competent
Dan represented me in a Federal suit against a finance company and repossession company who violated numerous consumer protection laws. His representation and advocacy is top notch and no one out there understands the consumer laws better.

Compassionate Caring Service
Attorney Dan Myers and his staff displayed utmost professionalism and superb legal assistance in resolving my legal matters after a construction mishap by the contractor. I was overwhelmed with concern and trying to resolve the matter on my own was not going to happen. I would highly recommend the firm of Attorney Myers to anyone seeking help with construction mishaps and, he helped me find resolution and peace of mind.

Roofing Job Gone Wrong
Dan was referred to us by a close friend. He is very knowledgeable about consumer protection and handled our challenging case well. The wheels of justice do turn slowly, but Dan and his team hung in there with us! He is honest and communicated the realities of our litigation and achieved a favorable outcome for us. We appreciate all he did on our behalf!

Best Consumer Law Attorney in the Business
I retained Dan to represent me regarding a consumer law and breach of contract claim related to a custom-made suit retailer who failed to deliver part of my order after I had paid for it. Dan was very professional, well prepared, diligent, and confident in court. Although my claim was relatively minor (just over $1,000), Dan still took the matter very seriously, and his dedication paid off with a judgment more than 7 times my out of pocket losses. I would recommend anyone with a consumer law issue to contact Dan without hesitation!

Response from Dan Myers November 3, 2016
While I appreciate and am flattered by the comment and its title, ethical rules require me to make the following statement: This is the result of one case and only one case based on the specific facts in that case. Results on this case or others are not indicative of other cases or future performance. Each case is different. Additionally, while this person believes I am the best consumer law attorney in the business, that claim is unverifiable.

Daniel Myers helped me with my case that I had no knowledge about. There were things that you could have not imagine when it comes to the law and actually what laws protect you he was able to see me through a very trouble time in my life. I can say if I need a honest and trusting lawyer he would be the one. Thank you!

Messy complicated home improvement case
Dan was referred to us by another attorney friend of our family. He immediately initiated steps to resolve our case. He provided options with outcomes in a manner that was understandable and straightforward. We felt confident from beginning to end that Dan was doing everything possible to protect us and ultimately win the case. He completed all the paperwork with us and kept us informed through every step. He contacted us regularly. We did not have to chase him around for answers or to alleviate our concerns or give us updates. Our case was resolved where we wanted it to be, with Dan guiding it there. Dan is energetic and forceful when need be. He operated well at all levels of our case...with us as clients, the opposing attorney, the court system, and the judge. He is highly professional and qualified.

Highly recommended
I was referred to Dan from another attorney who recommended him to handle a relatively small-dollar dispute with my insurance company. Dan took the case seriously from Day One, worked quickly and in a professional manner, kept me updated, and made good decisions. The matter was quickly settled to my satisfaction. I was impressed throughout the process with Dan's diligence and professionalism.

High level of talent and professionalism
Daniel did a fantastic job for my wife and myself. From the expectations set early on to the rapid results, we could not be happier. Finding anyone who truly excels in their fleid from automotive care to health care takes time, and is usually a process of trial and error. We feel exceptionally lucky to have found Daniel. He took the stress out of the process and I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Excellent representation!
We hired a Dan for a law suit filed against us regarding a customer and the service we provide. Dan was honest and very explanatory about the good, the bad and the ugly that could come about a small claims case. He was simple to work with asked all the questions and to the point. Amazing opening and closing of the case with everything needed in between to support a win. Needless to say we WON!! CALL HIM if you have a matter and you are in business providing a service and/or contractor work and want honest to the point get it done quickly representation!! Thank you so much Dan for your hard work!

A+ Representation
I was not a "high-profile" type of client. I had a landlord-tenant issue and the payout was realistically going to be small for him. However, he took my case and zealously represented me to the fullest despite this fact. Everything went smoothly. He kept me updated on the status of my case and he handled the opposition very well considering that they had more resources (money) than me. At no point did I loose confidence in his abilities to represent my interests. He negotiated a nice settlement for me considering the type of case that I had and the ambiguous issues that arose. He was personable and professional. I am really glad that I hired him and if another issue arose big or small, I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.
