So thankful I found Dan the Man!
After my 25 years of marriage ended with a controlling spouse I didn't know where to turn. I had lost all confidence in myself and was ready to run away and leave with nothing...until I met Dan. He helped me through the divorce and explained every step to me. Tammy answered any questions I had and calmed my nerves when needed. I am so thankful to them. I have my life back !

Mr. Bacalis represented me on my divorce. He was very knowledgeable about the law. I appreciated his direct approach. He didn't try to sugarcoat anything. I have used him since my divorce for other matters.

Worst Lawyer I've Ever Had the Displeasure of Hiring
Daniel Bacalis is one of the rudest professionals I had ever encountered. I hired him to help me with my child custody case. He did not ask me what I wanted and when I tried to contact him numerous times, I would never get to speak with him only his secretary. When I was able to actually speak with Mr. Bacalis, he was impatient, rude and even told me I was irritating him by asking too many questions! He charged me $90 for a 3 minute call! On our hearing date, he did not even represent me! He just stood there and did not ask questions to the other party nor did he try to persuade the judge to what I was asking for, which was not much. I had to hire a different attorney to clean up the mess he did. And thankfully I did that in time to help with my case.
