Amazing, Honest, You can trust what he says!
After one attorney decided to bail on me 5 days before mediation, I panicked. Then, I found Dan. He put to ease, outlining a game plan. Although I was apprehensive, the plan worked! If you are looking for someone who is humanly honest - Dan is your attorney. This man is truly genuine.

Far apart mediation, resolved by great work
Dan was jointly retained on a difficult long term care negligence case. The parties were seemingly "miles" apart at the beginning of mediation. Dan worked very diligently to bring the parties to a common evaluation of risks and benefits. The case resolved and all parties were happy with Dan's great work.
