Danny works closely with his clients- listening and learning about their daily struggles and taking close note of what they have lost as a result of their injury and damage. He then applies all of his legal knowledge, passion, and skill to fight for what his clients deserve.

He Cares About People
Without the help of Mr. Cornell and the people in the office we would probably still be waiting for a decision. I heard from other people that Mr. Cornell was the best in the area and they were right. I strongly recommend Mr. Cornell to anyone looking for an attorney, he did a wonderful job for us. He really cares about people who need help.

Professional firm
I was involved in an accident that was not my fault. I have never been in this situation before. Danny and his crew sat down with me and assured me they would take good care of me. The work they do is professional and complete. They know the fine details and will help you to the end as they did with my case!

Highly recommends Danny Cornell
My husband was in a serious car accident earlier this year. Totally unsure of what we needed to do in the situation and stressed out dealing with my husbands injuries ... I called on Danny to have some of my questions answered. And even though he was on vacation with his family at the time, he took my calls, answered all of our questions, advised us of what we needed to do and eased our worries and concerns. He even called back on multiple occasions to check in on how my husband was doing. Thanks Danny for being there when we needed you most !!

great lawyer
I had worked hard all my life when I was involved in a work accident that left me with a severe, permanent and life changing injury. I felt overwhelmed and fearful about my future and how I would be able to support my family. Luckily a friend recommended Dan Cornell and he was willing to help me out, He met with me and came up with a plan that gave me some hope. He fought hard with the insurance company to keep my case moving and stood up for me at every turn. Dan is a very good lawyer but what impressed me more was his willingness to always be there to talk to me day or night and answer my questions through a very tough time in my life. Along with his team, he got a great result for me and I feel very lucky to have had him for a lawyer.

I am an attorney and I have hired Danny numerous times for litigation cases and business transactions. He is an outstanding lawyer, not just because of his technical expertise, but especially because he cares so much about his clients and works so hard for them. That’s what distinguishes him from other lawyers.
