Review Dan Cogdell

  • Dan saved my life

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    I was in a car accident where I was driving and my best friend was killed. Dan worked with me for three years to achieve a deferred adjudication. It was a devastating event, a conviction for manslaughter would have ended my career and severely muted the remainder of my life. Dan saved my life.

  • Untouchable

    Posted by Lew Myers II

    I wanted to let you know that Mr. Cogdell is an untouchable. You want to fight a case? He will. He saved my life on a charge that could have left me on Wellfare for life. Thank you Dan. I would be in a ditch today. Now I have a house, wife, kids, dogs, cats, and my life back. Thank you so much.

  • In One of the Most Distressing Times of Our Lives, Dan Was There

    I'm not one to write reviews, this will be my first, however, because of what has been done for my family by Dan Cogdell and his team, I feel compelled to let others know that without Dan, we would have easily been caught up in a justice system that is not always so just. This case went through the hands of many prosecutors that knew something wasn't right, but refused to put an end to it. Dan Cogdell, along with his assistant Cordt Akers, not only put an end to it, but they also let us know, from the beginning, that they believed in our innocence which meant as much to us as winning the case. Dan has proven to be reliable, dependable and trustworthy, very compassionate and professional about what he does best, Protect His Clients. A Heartfelt Thank You to Dan and Cordt for giving This Family Our Lives Back!!

  • DISMISSED FELONY (Aggravated Assault)

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    I was pulled over for a routine speeding ticket. The police officer claimed I ran over his foot. I was arrested and put in jail for aggravated assault on a police officer. I spent over 24+ hours in jail. I have never been so scared or humiliated in my life. My sister in Georgia, did all the leg-work to help me find a preeminent attorney. WE both decided there was no price too high for freedom. After my interview, I knew Dan was the one, even though I still had one more interview to go. During my hearings, it was unbelievably reassuring the reception Mr. Cogdell gets when entering the court room. I knew I was in good hands.

    From the beginning of our situation, Dan always provided us a sense of comfort and confidence, knowing that he had the knowledge needed to process through. Although we thought, from the beginning that we could fight the charges and leave the situation without any jail time, that did not happen. Although, it was disappointing that we had to accept the plea deal, it was with confidence and understanding that we made the right decision. Dan provided enough detail to feel comfortable, without too much legal information that would have confused the situation. He was always responsive when needed.

  • Dan proved again "When Results Matter Most"

    I was in jail with no bond over a weekend and had to appear in Court on Monday morning. My wife left a message for Mr. Cogdell on Sunday afternoon. He returned her call right away. He had his associate (because Dan was out of town) meet my wife in Court Monday morning and had me out on bond.

    Because of my past numerous felonies and prison sentences, my current indictment of aggravated theft carried a sentence of 25 yrs. to life.

    I suffered some health issues during this time period including 2 strokes. Dan's concern and compassion for me was sincere. He convinced the Judge to postpone sentencing while I completed medical tests and numerous doctor appointments. He was also able to convince the Judge to allow out of the county travel to help take care of my disabled parents who live out of town.

    Due to Dan's knowledge of the law and legal system, I received 10 years deferred adjudication probation which was a big win for me.

    Dan Cogdell definitely lives up to his firm's motto of "When Results Matter Most"

    Dan and his colleage Cordt Akers got my DWI case in Houston dismissed after it was pending for 5 years. Throughout the process, Dan was responsive, creative and devoted to getting me the best result, taking into account my specific needs and schedule. He always took a fresh look at our options and came up with a winning idea at the end.

    Dan let me know exactly how the process was going to go. He's extremely knowledgeable and straight forward. He was able to get everything dismissed! There were no hidden fees. His office staff was always helpful and pleasant. More than anything, Dan doesn't bs with clients and he knows what he's doing.

    I was charged with interference of 911 call class A as well as charged with Assault of a family member class A. Dan was able to get both charges dismissed and expunged off my record. Until, Dan Cogdell, I didn't think Lawyers actual care about their clients but I was dead wrong. Dan treated me with respect, believed in my innocence and made sure I would never have to worry about this again.I can not thank him enough for believing in me and giving me my life back!

    We were referred to Dan Cogdell regarding a criminal defense case by a well-known Houston attorney. After we initially met Dan, we knew he could be entrusted to defend our family member. Our decision was not just based on the fact that he was a power-house attorney, but more importantly to us, that he truly cared. Over the course of 3 years, Dan shared all updates and answered all questions personally; most of the time within only 1 hour. Dan was/is consistently professional, informative and 100% honest. Dan Cogdell is the only attorney we would ever recommend; period.
