About Dane

Learn Dane’s areas of practice.

 
Why do you need an attorney who only litigates dental malpractice cases?

 

Unlike other types of personal injury cases, the facts necessary to prove your case are based on the dental records, dental x-rays, and the testimony of dental experts. Your attorney must understand dentistry and the law to effectively prepare expert dental witnesses whose testimony is necessary for any successful dental malpractice case. Ultimately, your attorney must explain the dental and legal issues to a judge or a jury to recover the settlement or verdict. If you want to have a reasonable chance of winning, you must have an attorney who has both the experience and track record to present your case. That is what sets the Levy Law Firm apart from the rest.

Our staff is trained to aid in obtaining all of your relevent records and assembling your file for an expeditious review. We have a proven record of achieving outstanding results for our clients in dental malpractice cases. Levy Law Firm has an experienced and dedicated staff that works as a team to uncover every resource available to bring our cases to the absolute best conclusions.

Absolutely wonderful & best in the field of dental malpractice!
I would like to thank Mr. Levy and his entire staff (the attorneys and supporting team) for all of their hard work & dedication during my case. I am grateful that I chose Levy Law and thankful for everything they did for. My case related to a dental surgery issue and Dane understood the issues and pursued them to the fullest extent. My case was more than just another case to him and Dane and his staff listened and understood everything I was going through and helped me through it. Many thanks for believing in me, hearing my story & then fighting for my rights. Thank you again!!!

You will NOT regret working with Dane and associates.
Dane and his team are incredibly accommodating, attentive, and kind. I never felt neglected or unworthy of Dane's time. He is one hell of a lawyer and dentist. I'm on television for a living and had a horrible nerve injury. I could've gone after lost wages, but I didn't want that cloud over my career. Dane was thoughtful and genuine when I told him I wouldn't pursue that for fear of losing a job in the future. Dane also knew this meant a lower payout in the end, but I NEVER felt intimidated or uneasy about the decision at hand. He helped me learn the legal process. He FOUGHT for me. I truly felt I had an advocate in Dane and his legal team. He understood my pain and injury. Having gone through both medical and law school, there's not a person I would trust more with my injury or lawsuit. I would 5/5 recommend Dane to a family member, friend, or whomever wants to pursue legal action for a personal injury.

Great lawyer.
I would like to thank Mr. Levy and his office for all the work they did in my dental malpractice case. I nervous and not sure I wanted to pursue a case but Mr. Levy and his office were a pleasure to work with. I like the fact that Mr. Levy is also trained in dentistry. Knowing both sides, dentistry and law, is huge help. Sometimes there would be large gaps of time where I wouldn't hear from their office or about the next steps, but Mr. Levy or his office always returned my phone calls, emails, and texts.

The best lawyer one can get
I contacted Mr. Levy after I had endured dental malpractice that left me with a permanently damaged nerve. After thoroughly reviewing my case, Mr. Levy agreed to legally represent me. Mr. Levy's previous experience as a dentist was a priceless asset for my case. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. My case took about 2 years until it was settled, and all this time Mr. Levy was in constant contact with me providing not only legal but emotional support as well. During the course of the lawsuit I went through some rocky time in my life, and Mr. Levy was always there for me. I think of him not only as of my attorney but as of a close friend. I will be forever grateful to Dane for everything he has done for me. Thank you Dane!

Litigation Made Easy
I would like to thank and enthusiastically recommend Dane Levy and his firm for successfully pursuing a dental malpractice in my behalf. My primary concern in selecting an attorney was integrity. I was initially impressed by his honesty and later discovered that he was respected even by his opponents for his honorable conduct. They call him the James Brown of dental malpractice, (the hardest working man in the business.) He’s the very best, look no further. Dane Levy was an answer to my prayers.

Dental Malpractice Lawsuit
I would like to thank Dane Levy and his staff for all the work they did in my dental malpractice case. I was very nervous about pursuing a lawsuit but Dane and his office were a pleasure to work with and I am very satisfied with the resolution and outcome of my case. Although I live in Northern California and Dane's office is in Southern California, this difference in geographic location was not a problem. We first met in Northern California when he was here on another case and thereafter everything was handled efficiently on the phone, by email or regular mail. I hired Dane because he is both an attorney and a dentist. He truly cared about me, my recovery from my dental injury, and my pain and suffering. He didn't just look at me as another legal case. He recommended the best doctors and medical centers in my area to treat my condition and he negotiated a quick and fair settlement of my case. I highly recommend the Levy Law firm to everyone. Thanks again Dane.

Dane Levy attorney malpractice dental suit
Dane Levy is probably the most thorough attorney I have ever worked with. His understanding of the law is great, and he being a dentist himself is a huge help. He is polite, understanding, and professional in all his dealings. He returns phone calls, emails, texts in a timely manner. Probably the best experience I've ever had with an attorney.

Exceptional
Words can't express my gratitude and admiration for Dane. I found Dane online, he decided to pick up my case and the first time I met with him was at his office. He is one of the most impressionable people I've met, not the typical esteemed lawyers you meet, but truly genuine. He made me feel so comfortable with my situation and truly cared about my condition. It was truly a blessing for me to find him. I am so grateful for him and all he did for me. If you are looking for someone who's honest and truly cares about your well being and the end result for you, Dane is the attorney for you.

Dane Levy is the best!
I just wanted to thank Attorney Levy, Christina Reynosa, and the entire staff at Levy Law firm for an amazing job with my case! Attorney Dane Levy is the best in the business. To see him negotiate and work is definitely amazing to watch. When I sustained my injuries I didn't know where to turn. I was fortunately referred to Attorney Levy by several attorneys after going online to look for possible legal representation. Not only did I receive amazing legal help throughout the entire process but Attorney Levy was also able to negotiate a fair and speedy settlement on my behalf for which I am truly grateful. Not only that but I was also referred to several amazing Doctors by Attorney Levy who will continue to treat me. Attorney Levy is always available by phone and email for any questions and he truly cares about your well being both in the present and ongoing future health and financial costs you may incur as a result of your injuries. His assistant Cristina is also amazing and is always available as well. I could not be more grateful to Attorney Levy for everything. If you need an attorney for dental malpractice there is no one better!

The Best Lawyer!
How would you know if you are getting a good lawyer? Most people would say it is a matter of luck and yes; I was lucky to find Mr. Levy to represent me in a recent dental implant malpractice case. In a short summary, the dentist drilled past my bone and into my main nerve. As a result, I have been suffering a great deal of pain and discomfort. My constant pain and numbness gave me anxiety, frustration, and restlessness. I was depressed from coping with the situation and decided to seek a legal representation. A quick research on the Internet led me to Mr. Levy’s medical malpractice professional profile. I called his office and he took the time to explain to me the legal process over the phone. I then followed up with a face-to-face meeting. During the meeting, Mr. Levy listened to my complaints and answered all of my questions. He then mapped out a course of actions with estimated timetable for my consideration. What I like most about Mr. Levy is his calm personality and his incredible expertise and knowledge in the dental malpractice area. By the time I finished my meeting, I have gained so much confidence in hiring him and knew that he would fight for my best interest and possible outcome. I found Mr. Levy is among the finest in this profession! He is held with high regard in the field and among his circles. He has incredible memory and his work products were always very thorough. This allowed me to be able to focus on taking care of myself. He kept me up-to-date with the status and addressed my concerns in a timely fashion. Mr. Levy fought hard resiliently and endlessly from the beginning to the end. Because of his intelligent, capability and experience, he was able to get me a settlement I deserved. Without his help and his expertise in the subject matter, I would have gotten nothing and would still be sitting here feeling sorry for myself. For once in my life I can say I had a great legal experience. He is the “God”. My advice for those who are in a similar situation as I was, please get legal assistance as soon as you can. Also, I am hoping that my information and truthful evaluation about Mr. Dane Levy’s service will help you making the right decision in choosing a best lawyer for your case.

Yes, I recommend him and would definitely use his services again if needed.
