DANA IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST ATTORNEY WE HAVE EVER USED! And unfortunately, we have used a few in the past 35 years.
Dana Leigh Azols, Esq., an attorney I proudly give my highest praise and recommendation. Three years ago my husband and I were in the unfortunate position of needing to move a close family member out of our rental house. Never a good situation, but hiring Dana allowed us to make the best of this bad one. Putting all communication in her hands, she did what needed to be done, and we were able to hold our heads up high knowing we had taken the high road and treated our relatives fairly, which was no easy job as this family member was determined to make it as ugly as possible. Without Dana, I would have lost my sanity. Our thanks to you Dana, and our best wishes in your new venture. Sincerely, Diane and Warren

Wow! What a Terrific Attorney!
I can't say enough about this attorney, so I'll just say she leaves no stone unturned and no work undone. She is a great personality, hard worker, enthusiastic and clearly enjoys what she does. She both collected a large judgment for me and procured another, totaling over $1 million in both judgment sizes. What is critically important about this attorney is her intelligence, her ability to see every pertinent topic at hand in my cases, her understanding of the nuances of law, and again her enthusiasm and great work ethic. This attorney is not a corner cutting lazy type and it is proven by the judgment she secured for me. She also cares about justice and what is right. She has good ethics and is trustworthy. Look no further-Dana is the best!

Peace of Mind!!
Dana and her Team were Amazing!! I was procrastinating for over 2 weeks and was losing sleep over a recent lawsuit my company and I received. I was facing major pressure with family as it involved several members and was hiding from the issue for many reasons. I decided to look on Avvo and I choose to call Dana and her Team. I was greeted very professionally by Allie and gave her a brief overview of my situation. In less than 24 hours I was on a call with Dana were she meticulously broke down ALL the angles and possibilities!! Needless to say I was so Elated to have connected with her not only was she Kind, Caring, Real she gave me a peace of mind knowing that she is an Expert in Her Craft. We went through a very complex Real Estate and Business lawsuit in a matter of 30 minutes and came away with a Game Plan!! Dana thanks for being so GENEROUS with your TIME and I will be recommending you to All the business owners and professionals that I know!!

Very Professional
I was referred to Dana by a family member and she was very prompt in getting back to me and helping me with an issue with my lease on my apartment. I was getting charged back rent for supposedly breaking leasing terms but with Dana's consultation it was able to get resolved quickly. Would definitely recommend her.

A horrible experience for 1st time Buyers with an amazing Attorney coming to their rescue!
Absolutely the finest legal representation I've ever encountered. Unfortunately it came down to needing an Attorney and Ms. Ozols was the perfect choice. The property my nephew and fiance were intending to purchase involved pending HOA/condominium litigation that we could get no definative explanation or answers to. Ms. Ozols stepped in and got us the answers we had spent countless days trying to obtain in one day. Based on the information Ms Ozols provided we cancelled during the open contingency period, well within the Buyer's rights. We then ran up against a rather 'non-neutral third party' Escrow holder (which is hard for me to say having been in the escrow business for over 38 years) with astronomical cancellation fees which included a $500.00 HOA doc fee which was to be a Seller charge. Needless to say, with one phone call from our Attorney, Ms. Ozols, the charges were reversed and Buyer's deposit was refunded in full. Amazing, we are so grateful for all you've done for us!

Unprofessional and Entitled
Rude, unprofessional immature woman who prefers to argue with everyone around her. Nobody likes her and her entitled pompous bratty attitude. She thinks the entire world should bow to her, and has done absolutely nothing to deserve that. Avoid this public nuisance if you want to keep your sanity. Videos online are proof of how ridiculous and childish this sorry excuse of a woman is.
