Top Lawyer in Personal Injury/Accident cases.
Dan is incredible at what he does, very thorough and a professional in his field. He worked diligently behind the scene, gathering any and all possible information, no stone left unturned. . I was impressed by the numerous focus groups Dan held, to find out how people think or feel about the facts surrounding my case and possible jury outcomes. I received inpeccable communication throughout. Dan is very easy to get hold of and responded quickly to any and all my text messages I felt like Dan Finney Jr. truley cared about me and would except nothing less than a favorable outcome. After days of research looking for representation, I know I made the right choice !

Very Professional
I contacted the Finney Law Office after I had a fender bender coming home from work one day. He was highly recommended from a friend of mine so I contacted his office immediately. From the initial call, his staff was externally helpful and informative of my options. I decided to retain Mr. Finney to represent me. Over the last several weeks, I have received several updates from his office regarding the status of the pending ticket and I have an understanding on what to expect. I have a minimum fine to pay and the attorney fee was minimum. Overall, well worth avoiding the hassle of appearing in court to represent myself. I would highly recommend contacting the Finney Law Office if you need to representation or have any legal questions.

Excellent Attorney!
This is a great team of attorneys at Finney Law Offices. Dan really cares about his clients and works hard for them. He was constantly consulting with us to get all of the pertinent information about our case. He spoke with people to help us confirm our case. He paid specific attention to detail and did what it took to gather all of the information for our case in order to help us the best possible way. I highly recommend Dan!

Good Listener with Follow Up
I think I kept this man on the phone longer than most, but then again my story was excetionally long. I appreciated that he did listen and was thoughtful with all that I had gone thru with my family.

My husband and I have been very happy with the communication from Dan Finney Jr. regarding our ongoing law suit.

An Attorney that truly cares about your case!
Dan was the third attorney I hired for a very complicated employment matter. He was incredibly responsive, very down to earth and genuinely cared about my case. He knew more about the facts and issues than I did and I lived them. He was very thorough and very responsive to my needs (and I am pretty needy.) He never once seemed frustrated with me or lost his patience. He took time and contacted me immediately in most cases but always the same day I contacted him. He was night and day comparison to the other attorneys and I am so glad I found him!!! The result I got in case couldn't have happened without him.

My Review of Dan Finney Jr.
Dan did a wonderful job in keeping me updated with everything regarding my case. I was not worried when he would tell me what was going on. I would recommend him for anyone that needed legal representation.

Top Attorney of St. Louis
Mr. Dan Finney and his associates are truly professional in their field. Dan has a lot of integrity and consistently has the client's best interest at heart. His knowledge in the field is outstanding and every time I had a concern or question he or his office answered quickly and explained to me what I and my family needed to understand. Not once did I feel that I was a bother to them in asking all the questions that I needed to ask. I had and have complete trust in Dan Finney and not only would I seek him out again if I needed his services in a personal injury case, I would defer to him if I had any questions regarding attorney work at all and let him guide me.

My wife's premature death
Dan was recommended to me as one of three malpractice lawyers and was the only one who returned my call. After a explanation of how my wife died at the hands of incompetent hospital employees Dan looked at the facts and decided we had a valid case. It took a long time to materialize but it was worth the results that at least punished the people who took my wife away from me at 48 years of age. She died fo an aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva, in laymans terms a leek in the chamber going to aorata .Dan was very thorough in his investigation and left no stone unturned. It is not easy to go thru the process but my sons and I are gratefull for his efforts on our behalf. I would recommend Dan to at least reveiw your situation if you are unfortunate and have something in your life happen that is just plain wrong .
