  • Erin K Morris

    Dan Snyder is aggressive, resourceful, and passionate about his cases and his client's. Dan's reputation in the legal community is unimpeachable. He is known as a powerhouse in the area of employment law litigation, and he is widely respected amongst his peers as a truly excellent litigator. A strong indicator of any attorney’s ability is whether his professional colleagues would entrust their personal affairs in the attorney’s hands. Not every attorney is capable of earning such respect and trust. I would trust Mr. Snyder to handle my case, and that is why I eagerly endorse this attorney.
