Serious soccer injury, Dan Rose was caring, resolute, determined and a smart strategist, making sure he looked after my interest
After I suffered a crippling knee injury, Dan was recommended to me by a trusted lawyer friend of mine. As soon as I hired Dan, he plowed full steam ahead on my case and didn’t let up until he had obtained a great settlement for me in a short period of time. He frequently updated me on the progress of the case and answered my questions any time of day or night. All in all, he greatly exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone with a personal injury matter. There is good reason that some folks call him “Dan the man”.

Dan Rose is excellent.
I was in a major car accident in January, and spent months in hospitals and rehab facilities recovering from it. Dan Rose was a fiercely committed advocate throughout the ordeal, negotiating with insurance companies and billing departments in order to secure the highest possible settlement in a surprisingly short period of time. Knowledgeable, diligent, and kind, he kept me informed each step of the way and relieved a great deal of the stress caused by my injuries. Thanks to Dan, I now have substantial resources to rely on for my future.

I highly recommend Daniel.
I have been a corporate lawyer for 26 years. When I was injured in 2017, I suddenly found myself on the other side of the aisle: I needed a lawyer. I did research, spoke with colleagues, and interviewed several attorneys. From our very first conversation, I found Daniel to be very straightforward and honest -- two highly unusual characteristics for lawyers. What most impressed me, however, was Daniel's responsiveness. Each time I called, Daniel personally answered the telephone (it's far more common for lawyers to use their staff to sift through possible clients). Each time Daniel promised to write me or contact me, he always did just as he promised. Even more surprising to me, Daniel would contact me with important information even when I wasn't expecting it. Daniel is not a salesman. He will tell you exactly how he feels about your case. As a seasoned lawyer facing my own injury case, I appreciated knowing exactly where I stood because it helped me evaluate how I should proceed. I highly recommend Daniel.

Dan is amazing
Dan is amazingly helpful, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He is highly responsive to phone calls and emails from his clients. He knows his stuff inside and out and you would be lucky to have such excellent representation. So glad I found him! I was a pedestrian struck by a car while crossing the street in San Francisco and on top of needing to heal (I had severe injuries) I was totally overwhelmed by the systems I found myself thrown into. Dan's advice and accessibility greatly lessened my anxiety and made me much more empowered as I recovered.

Forever grateful to Daniel H. Rose
In 2014, my wife and daughter were involved in a motor vehicle accident. My wife sustained numerous injuries and was hospitalized for several days in intensive care. I've represented myself in several legal claims in the past, but this was a bit out of my league. I interviewed 5 or 6 personal injury law firms and ultimately chose Daniel H. Rose because he most aligned with the attributes I was seeking for an attorney to represent my family. He was professional, experienced, knowledgeable, compassionate and was answering the phone directly on a weekend at 8:00pm! No other attorney sounded as genuine as Daniel Rose. He is committed to his clients, willing to work hard and truly cares about his client's well being, not just the case. On several occasions throughout my wife and daughters case, Dan went the extra mile for us. Our case was a bit complicated as we were dealing with multiple insurance policies with policy limitations, hospital bills and expenses. Dan helped out with everything, investigated liability of the person who caused the injury, their insurance limits and every angle to maximize our claim. Over the course of the next few months Daniel kept me updated on his case progress and made sure my expectations were in line with the many possible outcomes. He inquired on my families well being and worked hard to build the best case for us. In the end, the outcome was more than what we expected. This accomplishment could not have been achieved without Daniel's hard work, dedication and commitment. I always felt that I was Dan's only client, regardless of how many clients he had and he was very responsive to all of my calls and emails. He fought for my wife and daughter as if they were his own. Daniel Rose is honest, knowledgeable, tough, punctual and works extremely hard to take care of his clients. For these reasons I would only Daniel Rose to represent anyone with a personal injury claim. His firm specializes in Bicycle, motorcycle, truck, pedestrian, drunk driving, wrongful death, medical malpractice and more! If you are injured, Daniel is the best in the business. My family will be forever grateful for all that he has done.

Excellent Lawyer!
I called Dan Rose almost one year ago to represent my mother and I in a horrible car accident. After his secretary picked up the phone, I was immediately transferred to him. We were on the telephone for more than an hour going over every detail, and at that point I knew I would be working with him (though he gave me time to think about it). When we signed the client/lawyer contract, he got to work right away not wasting a single second. He was diligent with our case until every last issue was resolved. Everything about Dan was above and beyond any expectation one can have of a good, hard-working, efficient and capable lawyer. He went over every detail numerous times, never took more than an hour to return an email, showed genuine compassion, and even helped us sort through personal issues in order to move forward with our lives. He was very sincere and never offered false hopes, and at the end we received more monetary compensation than we expected. There isn't a good enough review I could write for this man, he simply was a blessing in a time of need. After our accident I felt a great deal of anxiety and panic; I was desperate to find someone to help me in a very difficult moment that I thought could only get worse. I read many of his reviews and decided to call him, and, after everything was said and done, I am very happy to have made that decision. If anybody is going through a similar situation I encourage you to call him too. If he's willing to take on your case he is sure to help you. I, personally, am very thankful for his work. He's an excellent lawyer and deserves to be recognized as such.

Great Lawyer
Dan Rose is an exceptional lawyer. I had the good fortune to hire him to represent me. He answered all my questions and concerns, kept me in the loop at all times, and was always prompt in returning calls and emails. He worked tirelessly on my case. I would say he was relentless, going to great lengths to find a way for me to get compensation for my injury. Best of all he has two traits one wants in one’s lawyer; a solid knowledge of the law and a strong desire to win. My case was a difficult one to prove but in the end because of his dedication and hard work he won a settlement for me. I can’t thank him enough for all his support, knowledge & guidance. He is without a doubt a 5 star personal injury lawyer. If you are lucky enough to get him to represent you, you need not have any doubt that he will work tirelessly in your behalf to get you the best possible settlement

review of Daniel Rose
I have known Mr. Rose for years through his legal career. I am an attorney and he has represented friends of mine in cases. His work is excellent, he gets the job done quickly and gets a maximum amount of recovery for his clients. He is very professional and is highly regarded in the legal community. He is very knowledgeable in his field and works very hard for his clients. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney in the personal injury field.

Dan is THE man!!!
When the chips are down and you feel you have no legal recourse, give Dan a call! He is caring, professional, persistent and spends the time to completely understand the situation both medically and legally. He does his homework! Very attentive and quick! It has been less than 6 months on a Kaiser doc settlement with a very positive outcome! Someone alter your life permanently??? Call Dan! He really takes pride in what he does and has a passion for it! I can now say with the help from Dan, Kaiser Permante has really made me "THRIVE" all the way to future retirement! I'm not fixed, but at least I have something for my nightmare!
