Master class
I did not know at the time hiring Daniel Snyders law firm would be one of the best decision I have made in my life. I was recommended to this firm by someone I could trust. Unsure and unclear of my case. Dan’s firm took my case and went to work. Never did they give up or throw the towel in. My case went on for over four years. This firm undoubtably is proficient and a master class in law. I would not hesitate to higher this firm. My time was not wasted just to get a billable hour. Very direct and to the point. If there is anyone that knows employment law it is Daniel Synder law firm!

Brilliant and listens to the client.
After 13 years of working for the world's largest pharmaceutical company, I was laid off for reasons that were ridiculous. After meeting with Dan and discussing what happened, he came up with several avenues for my case. I felt that Dan would listen to me and have my best interest like no other attorney. Litigation took four years and my trial was two weeks. During the trial, Dan Snyder was amazing at presenting the case to the jurors and questioning the witnesses. The Defendant had 5 attorneys from the West and East Coast present at the trial and over a dozen involved throughout the litigation. Dan was able to impress the Judge and jury without having an army of attorneys at our table. In the end, we did win the case and I just cried because justice had been served! I would recommend Dan Snyder to anyone that wants the best and most competent attorney for employment litigation.

Review of Daniel Snyder
My lawyer Daniel Snyder did a great thing for me. I was laid off from my public employment position, after 29 years. I was very disturbed by the circumstances that I felt were related to age discrimination and retaliation. Dan met with me and through the course of our discussion he was able to discern another potential avenue for a claim. Dan worked very hard to help me bring the eventual lawsuit to a successful conclusion. Through the course of several years, many depositions, and a week in court, before a jury, Dan presented a case that convinced the jury I had been wronged. I was very impressed by his demeanor, persistence and ability to portray my case in a favorable light to the judge and the jury. He was throughout, sympathetic, receptive and forthcoming. This is the only time in my life that I have ever been involved in such a legal proceeding and it was frankly daunting. Dan made sure that I did my part and he took every opportunity to make me feel like I was his only client - and I know that I wasn't. In short, from start to finish, Dan did an excellent job.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"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."
