Profession, Reliable, & Compassionate
After getting struck by a car while riding my bike a little over a year ago, I was at a lost of what to do next. From the beginning Daniel was refreshingly down to earth and a great help explaining the entire process. I had many questions and he was always on top of getting me the answers as soon as he could. There were countless times where I felt he went above and beyond to assist, like when he help me waive a toll ticket that happen the day of the accident. Above all else, he was diligent in getting all expenses paid and making sure that I was getting the maximum amount out of the settlement. In the end, Daniel was able to negotiate $20,000 total for me. He turned this traumatic experience into a life changing opportunity and hold him in high regards! Thank you so much for everything Daniel!

Up-to-date in his profession....very relieved to know he knows his stuff!!!
I'm a paralegal and was referred to David by a very reputable doctor. From my expereince, sometimes the older seasoned attorneys lack the latest research technology; this is not the case with David! He is very good at what he does and is knowledgeable and thural from the beginning to the end. In addition, he is professional, but at the same time down-to-earth, and takes the time to answer questions. I highly recommend him!

Motorcycle accident
After having my motorcycle accident back in May of 2017 Daniel Petrov took over my case from a previous law firm that thought I had no case , Daniel believe all along I had a case he and Christie work very hard and put a lot of effort and time in to my case , if I had any questions throughout the hole thing they were great about answering then no matter how many I had , they did such a great job we were able to close the case without a Trial trial and they were able to get me a large amount in my settlement, I will definitely be recommending to other’s, thank you so much again Daniel Petrov and Christie, definitely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very accommodating, knowledgable and organized
I called to make an appointment and Mr Petrov who just happened to be near by my house. He said that he would be "over in 10 minutes". He interviewed me for the trust and after the weekend he came by for final signing. The Trust was finalized that day.... couldn't have happened faster, more efficiently and painlessly for something I have been putting off for years.
