Dan, the man with a plan (case dismissed)
I left Scottsdale in a compromising situation, and it felt like my world was crashing down. I didn’t have a clue on how to navigate it, until I consulted with Dan and I immediately hired him. Off the bat Dan displayed that he genuinely cared for me as a person, checking on my mental and physical well-being before any discussion of the legal aspects. Dan being a caring person is honestly just a bonus of what you’ll get from him. He is as professional as it gets. Even in the heat of the pandemic and I living outside of Arizona he maneuvered this case flawlessly. Dan is on the ball, and always made my family and I aware and at ease with the situation and how to proceed. He worked the case to the absolutely best case scenario. I would 110% recommended Dan to anyone who I love.

Extraordinary Lawyer
I would like to refer anyone that is seeking an excellent attorney to Daniel Wilson. Daniel is a professional attorney who is compassionate, thoughtful and he sincerely cares about YOU and getting the best results for you. As a Canadian visiting the United States a lawyer from Canada recommended I seek council from AZ for a cycling accident. Mr. Wilson needed to navigate a case involving three parties being liable for the accident, with one of the companies being from outside of the country. I was always able to be in contact with Daniel with questions about my claim, and Daniel was always available, very patient and very detailed with his explanations and reasons for how best to move forward. I received a fair settlement for my accident claim however, if I had been willing to go to court the claim may have been much greater. I was not looking for “great” but for fair compensation and that is exactly what Daniel was able to provide me. I am extremely grateful to him and would highly recommend him for your legal needs.

Acquitted !!
I was aquitted on 09-06-2018 of Possession of a Narcotic Drug ( Cocaine) thanks to my Attorney Dan Wilson. Dan was able to research and bring before the jury, all the inconsistent statements by a Witness and Police. I am a 52 year old with no prior criminal history. The important thing is that Attorney Dan Wilson believed in my case and was not going to let the government take away the liberty of an innocent man. Thanks Attorney Dan Wilson for giving me my life back.

Detained for suspected shoplifting
Daniel Wilson reviewed the case, was knowledgeable and experienced in this type of false acusation case and did not falter in advising it be moved to trial. Within weeks we met several times where he devised a strategey to present the evidence that allowed the case to be dropped for lack of merritt. He was professional...warm...reasuring...and the best experience I could have askd for in an attorney. I would recomdnd Danial Wilson to my family and friends in need of a legal professional any time in the future.

Honest, dependable and worth every $
Dan is honest and upfront about costs. During my time working with him, there were never any hidden fees. He fought for my rights and we ended up with the case being dismissed. Dan also helped me seek the much needed counseling to move forward in my life. Thanks to him I have made positive changes in my life. I am glad that I called him, you will be too.

A plus!
Dan was referred to us by a mutual friend. He went above and beyond what we expected even though our case was not quite in his wheelhouse. He used his extensive experience gained through his education and put together a plan of action that gave us options. A situation we had been struggling with for over a year, was done and off our shoulders with a couple short phone calls and meetings (Start to finish with Dan, a couple weeks). Additionally, Dan has remained friendly and willing to help with any other questions or information we needed on other topics. His council has been wise and just. He knows the law and is due diligent. For example, he did research on a subject that I simply had a question about before answering. I am happy to have been put in contact with him.

Great Lawyer
My husband was looking at 15.75 year, but Dan stood by my husband side from day one and truly believed in him. He fought for my husband. Now we can live knowing we hired the best and tried our best. Not only was Dan there for my husband but he was right by my side as well. He help me understand what was going on, and explained what I didn't understand. If I wasn't able to make a court date he keep me update as if I was there. My husband and I felt like he personally cared. The treated my husband as the man he is. We are thankful for all Dan did for our family. New a lawyer call Dan. He is worth it and very professional. You wont be disappointed.
