Mike Danko earned his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, magna cum laude, and his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law. Early in his career he worked for an internationally known Wall Street law firm, representing the nation’s leading financial institutions in high-stakes business litigation.

Mike found the work more lucrative than it was fulfilling. Instead of protecting corporations, Mike wanted to help ordinary people. So Mike turned to representing those who have suffered catastrophic injuries, and the families of those who have been killed, due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others. Since then, he has earned for his clients hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and in judge and jury awards. The awards have helped pay for ongoing medical treatment and care for the injured, and have served to compensate families for the loss of a loved one.

Ultimate Professional
I would recommend Mike to anyone needing legal services in his area of practice. I am happy to report that Mike is honest and forthright. Mike will tell you the truth even if you might not be prepared to take it, good or bad. Mike's response time to a question or inquiry is unbelievably quick, which is something I would have never expected. I must say that I would regard Mike with the highest compliment I could give, that being, "He always does what is RIGHT." I myself have experienced from Mike, a high regard for "Respect for Human Worth." Yes, I had high expectations... But I did not expect for Mike to exceed them. You are fortunate if you have the opportunity of Mike Danko taking your case.
