Great counsel
Dan Dingeman is the rare attorney in my 30 year career in real estate that goes beyond the nuts and bolts of each assignment. He understands the nuances of all aspects of each transaction, is concise, insightful, knowledgable and consistently works to keep all parties on track to reach the desired outcome. His counsel is a valuable part of my overall success.

Good Experience
I have worked with Dingeman's firm for 20+ years. We have worked with them on business transactions, real estate deals, litigation and a wide variety of other various legal work. Dan and his firm have always been a beneficial business partner whether it was for 9&10 News or Fox 32. We appreciate their commitment and services.

Small Business Owner
Mr. Dingeman helped my husband and I select the structure for our business (an S corporation), obtain financing and purchase the necessary building. He did a superior job in shielding us from personal liability and provided us the best tax benefits for our business. We are so pleased, that in these troubled financial times, that we are successful and turning a substantial profit. We believe we were fortunate to have had the council and guidance of Mr. Dingeman.
