I hired Dan upon the recommendation of the bondsman who got me out of jail. Between some initial consultations and my court appearances, Dan suffered a tragedy in his family and a serious injury which kept him away from his duties for a short time. His partner Darin Mangnall stepped in seamlessly and went to my first court appearance with me, so it was like having two attorneys instead of just one. Dan was back by my second and final court appearance and he secured a more favorable outcome for me than I had imagined.
Well before that, however, he was able to have my blood sample re-tested. That slightly lower number made the difference in me having to have an interlock in my car for just eight months, with a possibility of early release after four months, instead of the two years that the DMV originally ordered.
At my final court appearance, he spoke very impressively on my behalf, and advised me in what I should say when it was my turn to speak. I ended up with my charge reduced to DWAI, instead of the original DUI charge, and I received the minimum sentence of community service and a much smaller fine than I've heard other people in my alcohol education classes have had to pay in the same county.
I hope I am not doing him a disservice by giving these specifics, as certainly not everyone will qualify for reduced sentences and fines, but I was EXTREMELY pleased with Dan's work on my behalf. He is professional, friendly, and was able to clearly explain the situation I was in and all the possible outcomes from the very first meeting. The time I spent with him was like being with a friend who truly cared about my situation and wanted to help.
I unreservedly recommend Daniel Mossinghoff as a DUI defense attorney, and wish him and his partner Darin Mangnall all the best in the future.
This review was honestly written without exaggeration or embellishment by a very grateful client.

I have utilized the services of Daniel Mossinghoff on more than one occasion. He consistently provided excellent representation, guidance, and a clear course of action. I was always kept up to speed on what was happening and why. This level of detail, matched with his interest and professionalism was top notch and set my mind at ease. I have no doubt entrusting Mr. Mossinghoff with my defense was the right decision and I know I could not of made a better choice in counsel. I without hesitation recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Mossinghoff represented me for a first-time DUI charge in the summer of 2012. It was an extremely stressful experience, but his expertise in handling my case was tremendously helpful and comforting. Although the case was not ultimately dropped despite questionable law enforcement procedures, I felt very confident that he got me the best possible outcome and counsel.

Exceptional lawyer, very experienced and trustworthy. Easy to talk with and sincere, Having worked on the other side of cases from him, and having seen some of his work for the defense community, I imagine he does an excellent job for all his clients.
