Daniel Gold-Kessler is incredibly detailed and knowledgeable and fought hard for me in my custody case. His integrity is beyond reproach. He is compassionate, sincere and fought for my rights for my 3 year old daughter. I am so grateful to him for all he has done towards representing me in a very bitter custody battle. He is pro children and champions them and fights for their best interest. I am in debt to him and his firm for all the help and compassion they have given me. Mr. Gold-Kessler is a rare and wonderful find as an attorney and I would recommend him to my closest friends.

I cannot or could not recommend a lawyer more highly and confidently than Daniel Gold-Kessler. He worked with me for over two years on my divorce and child custody case. Dan is extremely diligent, thorough, knowledgeable, extremely supportive, and very responsible and receptive in every domain and respect. He is very intelligent and left no stones unturned. He researched what he didn't know and followed up on all aspects of my case. He is very organized, a great writer and not only made sure to address all the issues involved but was extremely upfront and honest in letting me know my options and the ramifications for each. He never once steered me astray and always kept me on topic/task and grounded. I never questioned his advice or expertise and absolutely felt that he not only watched my back but did everything possible in supporting me through my divorce process. I have absolutely no qualms in recommending him to anyone as a lawyer and feel thoroughly confident in doing so. I feel that quite a few times he went well beyond the normal means to counsel, guide and support me through this process. I am more than happy to speak with anyone about what a fine young lawyer he is. Anyone who has Dan as their lawyer, is extremely fortunate and certainly does not need to worry about his conscientiousness, intelligence or the thoroughness and extraordinary quality of his work ethic, knowledge and character.

Dan Gold-Kessler represented me in a high-conflict, complicated divorce in which my children’s safety and well-being were at stake. I found him to be a brilliant, articulate attorney who clearly respected my children’s needs and worked tirelessly on my behalf.
In contrast to other attorneys with whom I worked during the course of my divorce, Dan was consistently patient and kind. He took the time to answer countless questions and understand even the smallest details of my case. He was highly accessible - even for emergencies after business hours. He was honest, knowledgeable and kept me well informed. His respectful handling of my case helped restore some dignity to an inherently undignified family situation.
Dan was a true advocate for me, in and out of the courtroom. He handled even the most confrontational of opposing attorneys with skill and an ability to cool escalating conflict. His analytical approach and mastery of the facts in my case made me grateful he wasn’t an opposing attorney. I have no doubt the outcome in my divorce would have been very different had I not been represented by this attorney. Highly recommended.
