Best WC attorney around!
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. He's helped me twice in the past ten years. In my first case, I tried several other attorneys before I found Mr. Descanio, No one would fight for me, except him. I can't thank him enough for that. On my other case, Jonathan was exceptional. Very informative and stood up to the defense and insurance companies without hesitation. Mariella put up with me on the phone all the time. She's a sweet heart. She always returned calls, and reminded of various appointments with doctors, qme's and court dates. Thank you to all of you! I highly recommend this law firm.

Social Security Lawyer
I searched all over California for someone to take my case. Only a few people were remotely interested in the case. Not only did Dascanio Law take my case, they tracked back to when my son became 18 years old and won the case. We are very satisfied and happy with the outcome. My son has more stability now and much more hope in his life.

Dedicated attorney
I personally am extremely satisfied with the quality and dedication The Law Offices of Dennis Dascanio has to offer. My mother's personal attorney Paloma Cobos worked hours toward her case and was overwhelmingly understanding through the process, and I am truly so grateful for the passion and attention Paloma committed to her case and without a doubt would refer her to anyone in need of representation!

Great lawyers
I give this office a five star review. I am a client who was referred to Mr. Dascansio by my brother Juan. He settled his case with Pamela Cabos and he was very happy with the results. He went from a denied case to a great settlement. I met Mr. Dascansio and he took my case. After my case was denied, Pamela fought for me and got me the money I needed while I couldn't work. I am in treatment and so far very thankful with this office, especially Ms. Pamela.

Great representation
I highly recommend this office. Mr. Dascanio and his team are very knowledgeable. I am very satisfied with Mrs. Cobos, her compassion and ability to fight for me every step of the way. She cares about my well being and takes the time to answer all my questions. I am very satisfied with the doctors they chose for me. After dealing with the insurance company and going nowhere I finally got the care I needed. I am about to settle my case and I could not be more pleased with the results. It is very difficult to survive while in workers compensation but great representation made a huge difference in my life. Thank you guys. I am

There is not a better workers compensation attorney out there!
I have used Mr. Dascanio services in a industrail injury matter, and the result were better then expected. Not just in the settlement, (money) but in getting my life back on track and into the work force. Mr. Dascanio went beyond what other attorneys do and explained in simple terms all aspects of workers' compensation. He had my best interest in mind, not just how much money was at stake, but how I could get better. And I do belive that becasue of his representation that I was able to get back into the work force much faster and recived my settlement offer and medical care without much time being lost. If I had to do this again, I would not use any other Attorney other then Dennis Dascanio. I recommend Mr. Dascanio to all my friends.

Personal Injury
Dennis was very professional with his representation of my case. He and his staff were friendly and showed experience regarding my case. He returned my phone calls promptly. During office visits he did not keep me waiting for him. He helped me by providing the reassurance I needed during a difficult time in my life. He is a credit to his profession and a good human being.

Maybe not the worst, but will do until the worst comes along
Avoid this guy. From my perspective: did nothing more than go through the motions, file necessary paperwork, does minimal work, lets the insurance company run the show, and collects on whatever settlement is reached. Not at all responsive to my requests and thoughts on how to proceed with the case. Every time I wanted to discuss case (which his office made difficult), had to wait so (my best guess) they could review my paperwork and even then showed little to no specific knowledge of the particulars of my case. Communication was terrible, with my frequently learning of developments from the insurance company's attorneys after choices had been made. There's lots of other Workers Comp attorneys and I suspect all of them are better.

Response from Dennis Dascanio August 19, 2016
I take personal responsibility that you were not given a timely appointment to speak with me. My office policy is to schedule appointments within one week of the request, and with rare exception, we are able to accomodate. As an attorney who handles Workers' Compensation, my schedule is busy, but I will always accomodate clients, no exception. Work Comp is a busy and complex process and often, clients need to speak to the attorney to answer questions. I hope this was just a misunderstanding. If you are a client, I ask that you immediately schedule an appointment to see me. Sincerely, Dennis Dascanio

Stupid Hearing Reps Representing You
Mr. Dascanio has so many clients that he runs a "mill." Forget about winning your case. He sells out to the insurance company and tries to settle for as little as possible. And he sends you to ridiculously inept doctors--that get the facts wrong. The one he sent me to was 90+ years old and he never ordered an updated MRI from my injury in 2009--stating that patients don't get worse, they only get better. Yeah, maybe in Neverland.

Horrible experience
Dennis does not return phone calls. I have lifetime medical and have called him 5 times and left messages that I was having surgery and I urgently need him to call me. I had surgery three weeks ago and still had not heard from him.
