Dan Whitehead represented me in my divorce and did an absolutely wonderful job, I could not have asked for more. He explained exactly what was going to happen, he lead me down the right path and coached me when I started getting frustrated and didn’t know what to do. He is a great attorney and person, throughout my case he also became a great friend. He took an absolute personal interest in my case and the well-being of myself and my children. His staff is so kind and helpful that every time I had a question, I didn’t hesitate to call, they made me feel at ease. Dan is very caring, confident, and knowledgeable and he will not drag out your case to try to make more money, he wants it over because he knows that’s what you want. He is moral almost to a fault, (I did say almost) and if he takes your case on, you are in great hands. If he says that he believes he can help you, he means that 100% and he will do everything to make sure he does. He is very down to earth, and talks to you in a way that you can understand instead of trying to confuse you. He will sit down and talk with you to obtain all pertinent information in your case as well as get a feel for your personality before he decides if he is going to take your case, most attorneys call this a free consultation, he makes it feel more like a conversation between 2 old friends, your comfort and confidence is very important to him. He was very sensitive to my financial situation; he understood what I was going through and allowed me to set up a reasonable down payment and payment arrangements. No other attorney can do what he is capable of and they certainly wouldn’t take on a complex case at such reasonable rates with a payment arrangement. He has built a good rapport with the people in the court system. His reputation is very solid and he is very well known. He has gone above and beyond in every aspect of my case and from what I have heard from everyone that I have talked to,’ this is just Dan’. My case is over and he has personally called me to make sure everything is okay, just to check up on me and my children. I wouldn’t recommend ANY attorney other than Dan Whitehead.

Dan is the only lawyer I have ever experienced with a "down to earth" demeanor. He thoroughly explains something, when needed or asked, and talks to you like a human being. He doesn't throw of "shtick" or try to confuse you with big words. He also goes out of his way to help you out. He is a great guy.

Mr. Whitehead is a very caring confident and knowledgeable attorney he takes interest in every one of his clients. If he says he thinks he can help you out. he means that 100%. I hired Mr. Whitehead I was facing 10 years for substance abuse. I don't know how he did it but he got me one year in house arrest. Mr. Whitehead is not a lawyer that drags his cases out. He gets down to business and gets the job done. if you want a job done quick and fast I recommend you call Daniel K Whitehead.

I hired Mr Whitehead to help me with a custody issue. We are not finished yet, but to this point Mr Whitehead has been extremely informative and attentive to our needs. If you are in need of legal counsel in Central Indiana, I would definitely recommend Mr Whitehead.

Daniel Whitehead is one of the best attorneys that have worked for me. He's very keen and very personable went above and beyond for me and my daughter in 2 litigations one involving personal injury the other was a custody battle. Me being a male battling the mother of my daughter and I won not normal for a father to win over a mother. It was hard but he worked with me in every way financial and consulting me and asking my opinion and getting the real feel for what was going on he never lied to me and did everything he said he would and I would recommend him in anything I do or anything that some one else is going threw. If you have a case and you not sure he's probably going to give it to you straight and he doesn't make any promises but he works for you with other attorney's in his office. I can't say anything bad Danny he's really a great person wish we had more Lawyer's like him.

Dan represented me in my divorce and did a great job. He provided a great explanation of the overall process and answered all of my questions. In the end I got more than I was expecting and this can be directly attributed to Dan's leadership and coaching. I highly recommend Dan Whitehead.
