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.

I contacted Ricson's law firm to request that the DUI I received 5 years prior be expunged. During the original trial, I used the same law firm because I moved out of state. I have since moved to a third state and thought my case might be more complicated.
Though we had to play phone tag a bit, Ricson readily assured me that I had a fair chance of expungement and said he would take care of it. One month later, I received a phone call of congratulations.
I appreciated how easily it was to communicate with him on the whole matter. I definitely felt more at ease about the whole thing.

Ricson Dakanay was assigned to my criminal case after I met with the Law Offices of Michael A. Scafiddi. This was all new to me and I assumed that I would be working directly with Michael as my attorney. At first I was surprised and slightly perturbed that Ricson was going to handle my case because we never talked with him and he was young.
Once I started working with Ricson, he put me at ease. He took the time to listen to my concerns as well as how I wanted my case to be handled. He worked diligently to make sure that my needs were met. He researched and advised me of what would happen if I was convicted of the charge that was against me. I shared with him that the best outcome I could ask for was (1) not to serve time in jail and (2) keep my drivers license intact. This was because either jail time or suspension of my license would result in the loss of my employment.
Ricson also attended the meeting that I had with the Probation Department. The court had requested that a pre-plea report be taken and submitted to the court. During the interview process, I answered all the questions that were asked of me. At the end, the probation officer asked if there was anything else I wanted to add to the interview. After 90 minutes of being interview, I couldn't think of much else to say. Ricson stepped in and spoke about my character and the type of person I was. His words that day showed to me that he took my case very seriously and he took to heart and represented me in the best possible way. He expressed the words that I needed to include in the pre-plea report that I left unsaid.
He worked with the DA and within 5 months, my case was resolved with no jail time and no adverse actions against my drivers license.
Even though my criminal case has been resolved, Ricson continues to check in with me as I wrap up the other matters that I need to take care of. His personal touch is greatly appreciated and shows me that he truly cares and is not just doing his job.

I hired attorney Ricson Dakanay to help me with my DUI case, he was very aggressive and was able to win my DMV hearing case to avoid the year suspension due to a blood test refusal.
I find Mr. Dakanay to be very knowledgeable and very professional.
He review and went thru my arrest report to find mistakes that help me fight my case and WON.
i would definitely recommend attorney Dakanay to any of my friends and family if they were in a similar situation.

I scheduled a consultation with Ricson and talked about expungment. Very professional, flexible on dates and times to meet, and informative about the process. This made me aware of the steps of the expungment. Decided to hire him with my case. During the process he kept in contact and responded in a timely manner whenever I had questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend this lawyer.

Ricson took care of my DUI case and managed to work with the DA to drop my case to wet reckless driving, which I am very happy about. He represented me at the DMV as well and helped me keep my drivers license which was a blessing. I never had to appear in court or at my DMV hearing which was very convenient for me. I got along with Ricson very well personally. Overall, I have no complaints about his legal services. He did the best a lawyer can do in my case.

Ricson is an awesome lawyer. I called for a consultation on a Marijuana DUI. I needed someone to fight for me and he said he would. I felt like he was on my side from the beginning. I hired Ricson to represent me and am very happy I did. He kept me updated through the whole process and was available for all my questions. Most importantly he got me a result that I am very happy with. Hire Ricson, he will fight for you!!!

I am so incredibly appreciative to Attorney Ricson for all the hard work and dedication he has done for my case. He doesn't quit until you get the results you want. When we didn't get what we wanted the first time, he said don't give up, it's not the end. I can finally see a brighter future for myself after this one huge mistake. Thank you again Attorney Ricson!
