  • Michael Thomas Malowney

    I met Dan many years ago when we worked a co-defendant case. I was impressed with his level of professionalism and skill rarely seen in our business. I continue to turn to Dan for guidance on complex legal issues. He is one of the top criminal defense attorneys in California.
