Expertly navigated my divorce and DV issues, with the best result possible
Dan knows the ins and outs of the divorce and DV laws, and was able to help me successfully address false allegations and quickly finalize a potentially long, costly process. I followed his advice, and I couldn't be happier that I did. I highly recommend him, especially if you're going through a divorce with DV elements.

Seattle Landlord Dispute
Mr. Near is more than just a great attorney, he is a good man. He has earned my trust and is a positive influence that people are unafraid to talk to. He genuinely cared, and intensely listened to, my legal dispute with a landlord in Seattle. By correspondence, he assisted me with filing the appropriate legal documents in Superior Court and the case was dropped. He is absolutely incredible!

Concise, helpful and intelligent lawyer
I have been dealing with a complex family law case that has spanned over 6 years of exhausting litigation. I appreciate that Mr Near intuitively answered several questions that I was confused about. With the twists and turns in my case, I may very well need another attorney and if I do, I will ask for his help formally. Thank you for your help Mr. Near.

He has helped me with child custody and support, my special needs trust, civil lawsuits, and even helped me in traffic court. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience. He is always available to assist me and offer advice.

Best attorney ever!
Mr. Near has been my and my family's attorney for the past 20 years. He has handled all of our legal issues including child custody, child support, trusts, wills, social security disability, restraining orders, criminal cases, and civil lawsuits including prosecuting and defending. Mr. Near has always been extremely professional, knowledgeable, patient, and affordable. My family and I would never consider hiring any other attorney.

Pettyfogger cheater scammer
Don’t even think about using Dan he is honestly the most over rated attorney. He is a liar cheater and doesn’t give a hoot about being under oath. He will lie lie lie and tell his clients to lie. Worst ever

Don’t waist your money
I’d would have to say Mr. Near is the worst attorney I have ever dealt with. He told me to lie in court after been sworn in. Right after that I said, nope give me my money back. Don’t waist your money. Not only is he a bad untrustworthy conniving attorney but he’s a bad bad person.
