We met with Mr. McDevitt regarding a personal injury case as a result of a traffic accident. It was apparent from the very beginning that Mr. McDevitt was the right attorney to handle our case. Dan provided us with a strategic course of action, a general timeline pertaining to our case and answered all our questions prior to taking the case. Dan provided us with regular updates and worked aggressively to bring our case to a very satisfactory conclusion, which is ultimately why we hired him. If you are searching for an attorney to handle your case, I highly recommend that you speak with Dan McDevitt prior to making this all important decision. His expertise, aggressive action and friendly service cannot be beat!

When a motorist with minimum insurance coverage hit me, I wasn't sure how to proceed with my insurance claim. I was referred to Dan by a friend who worked as a public defender in traffic court, who said Dan was highly thought of in the field.
From my first conversation with Dan, it was apparent that he was the right counsel for my case. He had a depth and breadth of knowledge that was astounding. He was calm and methodical and knew all of the ins and outs of the many moving parts of my case. He was never pushy, and always seemed to have my best interest in mind.
Throughout the claim process, he kept me informed and translated what was going on behind the scenes. The end result was more than I could have hoped for. While I would prefer to never again be in the situation I was, there is no question that I would retain Dan again in a heartbeat.
I cannot recommend his services enough.
Heather Nelson, Personal injury Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have defended several cases in which Dan has represented an injured party. Although this renders us as opponents, I have only high praise for Dan. I have yet to come across another attorney so prepared and organized. He extends the highest level of professional courtesy and is extremely easy to work with. His competence and good nature pays off for his clients - of that I have no doubt. He wastes no time and misses no issue. I hold Dan in the highest professional and personal regard.
