I believe God sent Rick my way when I needed him the most! My ex accused me vandalism in 2015 ( the amount of damages qualified as felony charges). Since I am at the end of my nursing program, I needed this to be resolved and fast! He settled my case quickly, from a felony to infraction. When I met with him I was devastated and he reassured me that it would all turn out fine. It did, and I am so grateful that I had him by my side through this whole process. He always responded to me in a timely manner, he was informative and professional. Most importantly he was transparent, which I greatly appreciated. I have nothing but good things to say about Rick and his office. I am happy to refer him to anyone who is in need of an amazing criminal defense attorney!

Ricson Dakanay handled my case and got me exactly where I needed to be to start working on a new life for myself. This was my first offense and my mom actually found Ric and called him crying because she didn't know her next step. My mom mentioned that one of the reasons she chose to hire Ric was because he calmed her down and reassured her that everything was going to be ok. I'm very grateful for Ric as he made me feel comfortable and confident as well. If I could suggest anything, I would've liked more communication about the case and what was going to be discussed prior to court dates, but other than that the process was very straight forward.

Life is tricky and eventually we all get ourselves in some tricky positions, when this happens remember the name Ricson Dakanay.
Ricson was great when it came to my DUI case. This was most trouble I have ever been in, and Ricson made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing. This gave me a bit of piece of mind. He made the whole court process so easy, I just had do whatever he told me, and that was that. He let me know exactly what was going on; if it wasn't necessary for me to appear in court, he was there representing me. He was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process. I am very happy I made the decision to hire him as my attorney. He kept me fully updated on my case and explained every detail along the way. I am very appreciative of his help. I will continue to recommend him to others.
