LOOK NO FURTHER!
I was referred to Mrs. Dawson by a separate party as a good fit to my child custody/ relocation case so I hired her on the spot and I’m glad I did. Not only did she win my case and got me everything I asked for, but she did it with the utmost integrity and professionalism. She is extremely punctual and organized, which is my favorite thing about her, right along with her drive. I could tell right away, she does not like to lose, so I had faith that she would fight for me as hard as she could, and she did not disappoint. She strives for greatness and her standards are high, so I wasn’t surprised at all to find that her paralegal, Ms. Mora, was just as hard working, punctual, and the perfect balance of professional and compassionate. Situations like this are never easy for the parties involved but with every email and every phone call, even if it was just a minor concern to ease my own mind, Ms. Mora never made me feel like I was an inconvenience or a hassle, never rushed me off the phone, and always made my concerns a priority, no matter how minuscule. I hope I am never in the situation where I need to go through this process again, but if I ever am, I will 100% be hiring her again. You truly do get what you pay for and for the outcome that she delivered, I would’ve happily paid twice as much.

So sensible
Danielle, is so valuable and really plays the long game when it comes to going through possible the worst time in ones life. When my mind was spinning and I didn’t know what mattered and what didn’t, she guided me through the process and helped create a strategy that pushed out the drama and focused on the end result. She guided my decisions with her knowledge of the law and what the court would ultimately do to save time, money and oh so much stress!! I trust her to handle my case and I know she takes her clients issues to heart in addition to going for a win.

Logical, honest and fair
Danielle always provided me with honest feedback that was based on the law, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. We were up against a crazy and emotional (bully) attorney, but Danielle stayed calm and worked through the case logically. She listens and then responds by explaining the realistic possible outcomes, while also explaining the available options to take. Danielle was always prepared, knowing just how to respond in court. I appreciated the honesty and the fairness Danielle and her staff provided to me during my case. I also appreciate how fair they were in their billing too. I will never find another attorney, as Danielle is simply the best.

Mrs. Dawson is an incredible attorney. She always returned my calls in a timely manner. She was always up front and honest with me about the divorce process and kept me well informed. She represented me and my interest in a very professional manner.

Very happy
Danielle was very helpful from the time I talked to her over the phone. She never got my hopes up or promised something that wasn’t possible. She was very professional and gave me an outlook of what court was going to be like. We were able to settle and my case is not closed. I am very happy with the work and the outcome of my short and stressful journey. I would definitely recommend using her.

Quick and Easy
Danielle Dawson recently represented me in my divorce. When I met with her, she was compassionate and helpful. Her paralegal, Jacqueline, was also very helpful and kept in constant contact with me and answered every question I had quickly and thoroughly. The divorce was quick and easy and I couldn't be more pleased with the support provided by Danielle Dawson and her team.

I'm very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to my attorney Danielle Dawson. I had a bad experience with a previous lawyer so had to find a new lawyer and thank God I hired Danielle, wish I would have found her sooner. She was very helpful, explained everything and always answered all my questions as soon as she could. Also her paralegal Jaqueline was very nice and helpful, always returned my calls or emails. Great customer service, thank you for all your help.

Best lawyer!
Ms. Dawson was fantastic! She helped me thru a really tough divorce. Helping me get to a settlement we could all live with! She kept track of my ex and his correspondence so that I didnt have to deal with him. Her office was always very supportive and informative even if it wasn't an answer I wanted. I would recommend her to anyone!

Caring and Professional, always looked out for my best interest!
Going through a rough patch in my life and needing a divorce attorney, a friend suggested that I should contact Attorney Danielle Dawson. I had contacted several other divorce Attorney but I hired Miss Dawson. It was one of the best decisions I made. Miss Dawson from the very beginning, looked out for my best interest. Whenever I had a question, Miss Dawson or her assistant Jaqualine Mora was quick to respond. Miss Dawson fought for my rights and refused to let opposing councel get away with unreasonable and ridiculous request during my seperation period. Miss Dawson continued to keep me fully informed throughout the process of the divorce. As everyone knows, a divorce is costly but Miss Dawson and her office have worked with me with my specific budget. Miss Dawson has done everything possible to keep my fees at a reasonable and affordable rate. It should be noted that my divorce was somewhat difficult. There were times when I just want to throw my hands up and give in to opposing councel demands, just to get the divorce over with. Miss Dawson and Miss Mora were very supportive and understood my frustration. Miss Dawson fought and fought hard for my rights. Because of Danielle Dawson and her staff, I have a promising future to look forward to. I would recommend Danielle Dawson to any of my family or friends who would need a Attorney.

Amazing Lawyer
My custody case was a bit tricky as it started in another state, and was transferred to Nevada. Danielle did a great job explaining everything we would go through and was honest about the best way to handle it as not to draw it out. She was very respectful of my feelings but straightforward with what needed to be done. She did a great job handling my case and the subsequent work I needed in order to relocate with my children. I owe the fact I have primary custody and that my boys and I have a great life to Danielle!

Awesome!
Working with Danielle was great. I've never hired an attorney before, so I was unsure what to expect. I may have been a bit needy at times, so I really appreciated returned emails and phone calls. I'm overall happy with this law group.

Danielle Dawson: The best lawyer in Nevada!
I hired Danielle Dawson after I had got myself into a little bit of trouble in Clark County, Nevada. The second chance at Life I live today I credit solely to her professional, quick and smart tactical approach to my case. I was young, ill-informed, 2,000 miles from home and innocent with my Life in the balance. Choosing a lawyer to fight some seriously tough charges wasn't on my list of things to do when I came to Las Vegas. I thank The Lord everyday that Danielle Dawson was my choice and that she took my case on. She is very to the point, fare and fought like a Gladiator for me. She went above and beyond in travel to north Clark County, rescheduled court dates and communication with myself. You cant go wrong! Don't mess around; hire D. Dawson! I can't thank you enough Danielle. You literally saved my Life.

The best experinece i have had with an attorney!
Danielle and her staff was wonderful! I got prompt and courteous service. They cared about my case and my child. They did everything I needed and more.

A law firm is only as good as the lawyer who is actually defending your rights and interests.
A law firm is only as good as the lawyer who is actually defending your rights and interests. Since I am always seeking the best, I can be somewhat hard-nosed when it comes to lawyers: When it came to my own amicable-divorce-turned-War-of-the-Roses; I fired 3 ‘experienced’ lawyers before I was lucky enough to find Danielle Dawson, Esq. – an extremely knowledgeable, soft-spoken attorney, with a very pleasant personality that judges seem to prefer. You will soon discover that she is not your stereotypical lawyer – which, in my opinion, is a very good thing The paralegals, that also assist Ms. Dawson, are equally thorough; a real plus when you need to get in touch with your attorney and they happen to be tied up in court at that time. I highly recommend her and her staff!

ethical and smart
I was with Ms.Dawson for almost 2 years and have experience with being represented from another divorce lawyer. I had a major snag up with bad or untrue advice or direction from Ms.Dawson's paralegal. The paralegal told me that I could "withdraw" the counter claim or divorce at "anytime." Eventually, when I asked to have the counterclaim withdrawn, I was told that "isn't possible." And, that blew up any chance of reconciliation during one of the positive ebbs of the separation. But, I was given a refund or some credits for the bad advice. With all lawyers or paralegals; be careful of what your told over the phone or in person. If they won't communicate over email, there might be a reason or to limit liability. In my experience you're more likely to get better information or advice if it's via email or in writing. Ms.Dawson was able to settle my divorce out of court and kept me out of court as I wanted, during the 21 months of her representation. Ms.Dawson, will do everything possible to not inflate your expense and keep your case out of court if possible and if that's what you want. In 21 months, I never felt that Ms.Dawson ever did anything to inflate my expense to pad her pockets nor was my expense inflated because of incompetence. However, there were snag ups with the paralegal, that I felt inflated expenses, but some of it was because of my indecisiveness. However, I was always given credit when I pointed things out. Ms.Dawson is a good lawyer and would definately make a good judge or have my vote.
