This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
I had called several lawyers trying to get an appointment and none understood my issue. Dana is very professional and helped me out and took the stress down for me. She was very attentive!! also her assistant was very kind!

Trustworthy and honest representation
Dana is an excellent attorney who showed a quick understanding of my case issues and a great ability to remember detail. She is an effective communicator and treated me well, explaining the aspects of and options for my case, making complex legal issues understandable. I have used several attorneys in the past and immediately noticed a positive difference. I always felt like a priority. Her style is compassionate and responsive. I also enjoyed her sense of humor as going through this case was not always easy for me. I very much recommend her as an attorney.

An attorney who actually cares
I never had to ask her what was going on in my case because her communication was great. She even made me a flowchart to explain my complicated legal options. Charges were reasonable and she didn't overbill. It was clear she really cared about my case. I would recommend her for any legal matter, not just animal related.
