I have known Dan for at least 15 years. What I like about Dan is that he practices law the way it should be practiced. He tells you what he is going to do and then he does it. He stays on top of the cases and does a great job. People don't have great reputations just because they show up to work. They have great reputations because there are hard-working, honest, and deliver. That's what you get with Dan. Clearly he has become a leader in the area of family law.
