This review should've happened many years ago when I didn't have a clue where to turn or what to do. Mr. Daniel saved me and believed in me. He would do the same for anyone else. Still thanking him to this day!

Happy Parent
Doug Daniel and his staff helped my son resolve of some serious charges against him. He is a true professional and has a great understanding of the law. He stood firm with the prosecutors and defended him with integrity. Doug is always willing to listen and took a common sense approach to his defense. Furthermore, his staff is approachable and ready to help. Doug took a bad situation and made it much, much better.
