Excellent Lawyer!
I hired Dean for my legal matters, when the Landlord, seller, and broker teamed up to scam us. Dean was hardworking, and he worked very hard to help us get a good result out of our case. He was very kind to the client, and understood our perspective of the problems as well. I would definitely recommend Dean for cases like this. He is a hardworking, intelligent, and very determined.

Strong Lawyer and Partner During tough time
I hired Dean for a legal matter involving my former company. Dean worked hard to understand what I was going through personally and made the effort to try to convince the company that I had righted my wrongs. Dean always answered my phone calls, e-mails, texts, and was able to explain the worst and best case scenarios for me. Dean has a strong background in tax and white crime laws and was able to be a strong advocate and council for me during a tough period in my life.

Extremely knowledgeable & responsive, Dean was a great advisor
I hired Dean for his help in a securities matter. His background was perfect and he has decades of experience in the field as well as within the government agencies. Personally I enjoyed spending time with Dean and learning from his vast experience. The thing that struck me most though was how incredibly responsive he was in every form of communication. He was always well prepared, and always showed tremendous respect and concern for my situation. Hiring Dean was the best money I could have spent under the circumstances. I'd hire him again in an instant and I'm Happy to be a reference for him.
