Review of Dafna Levi
Dafna is very client oriented. She responds rapidly to emails and queries. Her work as an attorney is thorough and researched. She is a strong strategizer. It was my pleasure to have her represent me.

A very personable and caring attorney.
The Law Office of Mary-Alice Coleman was co-counsel in my lawsuit. Dafna is a very personable and caring person and I can't say enough about her thoroughness, assistance and the follow up she provided while litigating the case. Despite her busy schedule, Dafna would always return my calls as soon as practical for her and was always willing to spend the necessary time in conversation. I would, without hesitation recommend her to a family member or close friend who might need a legal consultation or representation.
