Very good attorney to work with
I found Dania on and contacted her. She referred me to another lawyer which was more familiar with real estate law since my case is related to real estate transaction. The referral didn't turn out well, but Dania checked on me consistently and did extensive work to make it up to me after found out what happened. I didn't hire her eventually because we settled by ourselves. But I'm really impressed by her caring, responsive and professional attitude. Her charge is very reasonable too. I will definitely hire her as my attorney for future cases and recommend her to people I know.

Wonderful recommendation
I am writing to heavily endorse Dania Alvarenga for the wonderful job she has done representing me in a HR case at my place of work. It was indeed a very troubling and stressful period of my professional life, and Ms Alvarenga was exceedingly calm, discreet and respectful in the manner she handled my situation. Her knowledge and expertise was superb, and the advice she gave was exceptional. As a physician, my hours are somewhat unpredictable, and she was always readily available to discuss the case, either by phone or in person, even beyond normal business hours. She was extremely supportive, and I always felt she had my best interest at hear. I have no hesitation in recommending Ms Alvarenga and her law firm and couldn't imagine having anyone else represent me such matters in the future should the need arise.

Excellent Attorney
Although I have worked with lawyers and the courts in a professional capacity in the past I have been fortunate in that I have never needed an attorney myself until just recently. In seeking a consultation for a stressful and time-sensitive situation involving a contract/agreement dispute I contacted a number of lawyers and found that Dania Alvarenga was by far the most responsive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Dania was quick to respond to all of my questions and inquiries, both initially and throughout the time that I worked with her. I appreciated that Dania replied to all of my emails, that she made the time to fit me into her schedule quickly, that I always able to reach her assistant directly by phone, and that her office always called to remind me of our scheduled appointments. In meeting with Dania I was extremely relieved and grateful to find that she was not only very approachable and easy to talk to, but also very professional and knowledgeable about contract law. Dania was able to review and assess my situation quickly and effectively, while also taking the time to fully understand the nuances of my particular case without ever making me feel rushed or hurried in any way. Perhaps most importantly, Diana was able to make a number of very specific and practical suggestions that ultimately proved to be very helpful, and willingly offered to adjust her services to accommodate my specific situation. Since this recent, stressful experience marked the first time that I have required legal assistance for a personal matter it was extremely important to me that I find a lawyer who was not only highly professional and knowledgeable, but also genuinely concerned, patient, and transparent about the process. Attorney Alvarenga uniquely met all of these requirements and I am extremely grateful to her for working with me and helping me to finally resolve a very stressful situation. I will absolutely recommend Dania Alvarenga to any of my colleagues, friends or family members who may find themselves in need of legal assistance, and I will most certainly seek out her services again should the need arise.

I was treated unfairly by my employer
I was feeling lost because my former employer had an attorney and was not paying me for two days pay and vacation due me. Dania agreed to represent me and made the objections when their attorney tried to inject issues that were irrelevant to the case. Without her I would not have known what to do. Thank You Dania.

Excellent Lawyer
In the event you need to seek legal representation, I would highly recommend Dania Alvarenga. Recently I had a somewhat complex situation with my former employer, Diana took the time to listen, analyze and provide proper, sensible guidance for my particular scenario. I will come back to Mrs. Alvarenga for my legal needs!

It is without hesitation that I would recommend Dania Alvarenga! She is knowledgable and went out of her way to help me!
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Dania Alvarenga as an attorney. I was in a difficult and painful situation with my employer. Dania saw that I had been wronged and went out of her way to work with me. She also came recommended from a close friend who had had a positive experience working with her in a separate case. I spoke with many prospective lawyers for my employment law case, but none came close in regards to their knowledge of the law and ability to relate to my needs as a client. Since I had never worked with lawyer before, was negotiating with a large corporation and also terrified of loosing my employment and main source of income, it was important for me to have an attorney that I had complete confidence in and felt was always on my side. Dania always took the extra time to talk to me, returned my calls promptly and worked quickly, even before we had officially discussed her taking me on as a client! Dania helped me make the right decisions and was not only willing to do the extra work that was required for a successful outcome but was able to provide me with assistance promptly no matter when I needed it. She was empathetic and took extra time to provide not only legal advice but emotional support. Making the choice to have Dania Alvarenga as my Attorney has enabled me to walk away from the situation with dignity and pride, and a sense that things had been made right! Thank you Dania!

First of all, I want to say that I’m sorry you’re going through a particular problem which requires legal matters. Sometimes life isn’t fair and you find yourself probing for legal help. Yes, the process can be very frustrating. The truth is, not all attorneys are right for you. Just like a trusted Primary Care Doctor who you would visit every now and then to take care of your medical needs…This doctor makes you well again. Just like an Insurance Agent who provides you protection by tailoring your coverage needs…You gain peace of mind knowing that your preferred Insurance Agent is readily available to support you. Outstanding customer service goes a very long way. I mean, you wouldn’t switch barbers or hairstylists if your haircut service exactly meets your expectation right? Regarding legal issues, I immediately turn to Dania Alvarenga for aid. After going though several attorneys, my search for the right attorney ends with her. She will be my point of contact concerning any legal matters within her area of law practice. What makes her so amazing? Well, she devotes 100% of her law service to you. Unlike like other attorneys who tend to complete my sentences and waste a lot of my time, Dania is both a great listener and advisor. She truly cares for her clients and goes out of her way to provide timely & valuable service. I highly recommend Dania Alvarenga and encourage you to give her a call. You won’t regret having her support.
