When you retain the Raff Law Office, you're not just hiring someone to help you with your legal work, you're hiring an adviser you can trust.



The Raff Law Office takes pride in our ability to aggressively defend our clients' interests. We spend the time and resources we need to stay current with changes in the law, and we utilize that knowledge to our clients' advantage. In addition to other matters, our attorneys have experience litigating cases against international conglomerates, negotiating million-dollar lease agreements, and counseling businesses at various stages of their development.



The Raff Law Office is dedicated to meeting our clients' needs. Our attorneys have been successful in a variety of settings, achieving success in jury trials, court trials, motions and other hearings. But success is not always measured by outcomes in the courtroom. Often the best and most cost-effective representation comes from helping clients avoid going to court, either by drafting superior legal documents or by negotiating favorable settlements. We work closely with our clients to make sure they are happy with how their matter is resolved.

Best advocate!
I run a small consulting company and after 9 months of working with a client on a monthly service contract he had his attorney write an aggressive letter asking for the last 6 months (120 hours) worth of details on what I provided him with. With no avail I reached out to Dan as I didn't want to try to deal with an attorney. He wrote a letter, called and assisted me in my document preparation. After all said and done, Dan saved me from a court case and $12,000!

I would recommend this attorney
Prior to my signing a work agreement for consulting work, Daniel did an excellent job of reviewing the document presented to me by the company. I greatly appreciated his ability to explain to me, in language that I could understand, the potential issues that could arise from the stated terms of the agreement and to suggest alternative approaches. I also appreciated his ability to work efficiently to accomplish the review within the amount of time that seemed consistent with the task.

Great Attorney
Dan helped me to understand what all of the legal jargin was and took his time and if I had any questions he would not continue until it was clear. If I need an attorney for the same issue I would for sure get Dan to help me.

Daniel Raff is Excellent Attorney
Daniel Raff did an exceptional job reviewing a contract for me when I was considering a business opportunity. He explained very clearly what the concerns with the contract were. I forwarded those specific concerns to the people I was doing business with and they actually offered to pay me for them, because they also found them to be very valuable. Dan was also very clear about what he expected of me and what I could expect of him. Not many people communicate so well these days. It was especially refreshing to have a relationship with a lawyer go so smoothly. I would recommend Dan to anyone else that needs an attorney in the future.
