Velton Zegelman is an excellent law firm and I highly recommend them to anyone needing the best of the best. They had great communication with me throughout my case, explained the process clearly, and made litigation as easy as possible. I appreciate all they have done for me and feel very fortunate to have had them represent me. I am above and beyond satisfied with the outcome of my case.

I had a wrongful termination case and contacted Daniel through avvo.com
He responded quickly and assisted me in crafting an Appeal Letter that was direct and compelling.
My employment was reinstated and Daniel's legal savvy and wit was instrumental in the success of my appeal. I would strongly recommend Daniel for your employment related legal issues.

I selected Dan to handle my employment case after interviewing several experienced employment and labor attorneys. Dan is sharp, thoughtful and effective. He uses his extensive knowledge to ask focused questions and quickly get to what matters. When he determines that you have a case, he is bullish in his representation and you will be glad that you have him on your side. He quickly lays out the case with a high level of details, and quantifies the damages that he will work relentlessly on getting you. I have worked with tens of attorneys in the last couple of decades, and Dan stands out as one of the most capable attorneys, with tremendous mastery of his area of expertise. Dan takes care of the bulk of the case-related activities for you, allowing you to go on with your life, and he updates you as needed with communications that are clear, concise and friendly. Dan does not rest until he gets you the outcome that he knows you deserve. Put simply, Dan gets the job done.
